Why do so many gyms sell

Why do so many gyms sell cheap protein, weight-gain powders and food bars  that don't work? Why do we need them when we can get everything we need from normal food?  All I see is that fat boys and bodybuilders  buy them. We do not need them at all. We need good food. It is all about money and not fitness. You can spend as much as £40 on some of them, and it would be better to spend it on good food.

I have been working out for over 20 years and I know you do not need this sh--- in your body. I see so many trainers taking this sh---.  And they don't even follow a proper gym programme working out  4 times a week.  If you look at the labels of the the bars and weight-gain powders your can see it it all just sh.. To eat properly, you don't have to measure  your food. You just need to eat for your body type. I'm 40 years old now and I've got a 17in arm and a 6 pack without all that shi-- in my body.  If you eat crap you don't get bigger, you just get fatter.

Also you don't need to train for 2 hours at a time. 45 minutes 4 times a week is enough: if you train properly, less is more. You need to eat good food, rest properly, sleep 8 hours each night, eat no sugar, drink no beer or wine and you will get bigger without all that crap.  If you want to be in the best shape,  read Paul Chek's  book  'Eat, Move and be Healthy', and get a Chek practitioner to help you draw up a programme just for you. 

Bodybuilding books don't work;  they only work if you are on steroids. If you get a personal trainer make sure he or she is in shape and has a big legs or chest or arms or whatever you are looking for. If they say you need cheap weight-gain powders and food bars tell them they don't know what they are doing,  and a get a new trainer. Personal trainers in London are some of the best there are, but some are shi---  so have a good look round before you choose one. 

My 5 top tips:

1. Don't put cheap sh.. weight-gain powders and food bars in your body.

2. Get to bed at 10pm  and sleep for 8 hours.

3. Get a  good programme  from a trainer who knows what he / she is doing.  

4.  Drink lots of bottled water.

5. Stretch  before and after your work out.
