How To Produce Male Hormones

I am 15 years old and I have been bodybuilding for about 1 1/2 years. I weigh 175. You should receive my order for your arm course very soon in the future. I have a question. I hope you will please answer. I saw an ad about Formulas B3 and B7. It said in one of the testimonials that it is a substitute for anabolic steroids but it is natural. Do you know if this stuff works? Does it hurt your body in any way? I don't ever want to use anything that would harm my body in any way. Enclosed is a stamp. Thank you very much for your time and trouble.

Single vitamins (Mono Substances) cannot work, they need catalysts to be utilized. If you're interested in producing male hormones in your body, do as the fellows in my gym are doing. 1 - 3 dozen raw fertile eggs mixed in 1/2 & l/2 cream and milk beaten, and taken every 3 hours will produce an anabolic effect by putting you in positive nitrogen balance. It's as easy as that. The effect is really miraculous.

Maintaining Positive Nitrogen Balance

Eggs (raw) blended in lite cream beaten with a fork not a mechanical blender will give you an anabolic effect and will put you in positive nitrogen balance. But please be aware of the fact that abdominal work must be held down to a minimum as it produces a type of central nervous system shock and negates tissue growth. Do not work your abdominals more than two times per week. You can get good abs in 6 weeks if you work them right! I did.

Vince Gironda's Hawaiian Reducing Diet

This diet is simplicity itself. It consists of red meat, chicken or fish and papaya or pineapple 2-3 times per day. The secret of this combination is the high enzymatic activity produced by the papaya and the pineapple. This diet is good for one-pound fat loss per day.

Garlic Therapy For Health

L. Sklyarevskij, candidate of medical sciences, states that garlic has been used in folk medicine for a long time as a diuretic, for improving digestion and the heart rythm, and for the treatment of various infections. Garlic extract in vodka has been used to dissolve kidney stones and to treat rheumatism and gout. Recently, the success of garlic in folk medicine found scientific explanation - substances which possess antibiotic qualities. Soviets are now producing the antibiotic, Allicin, and other drugs made from garlic.

Dessicated Liver Experiment

(Although I feel this experiment was not carried out as I would have conducted it (abdominal work should have been excluded) I still feel that anyone can expect the following results which I consider minimal.)

Dear Vince:

You mentioned in an article sometime ago that you would like to hear from people who had duplicated your experiment with desiccated liver. I carried out the experiment for two months. The first month I took thirty desiccated liver tablets each day (10 at each meal). I made the following gains:

Arm .......... ¼"
Chest ........ ½"
Thigh ........ ½"
Calf ......... 1/8"

The second month I took two 7½ grain liver tablets as you suggested. At first it was hard to remember to take the tablets every hour, but by the end of the month I had gained the following:

Arm .......... 3/8"
Chest ........ ½"
Thigh ........ 3/8"
Calf ......... 5/8"

I used six sets of six reps for each muscle group with the exception of squats which I worked three sets of fifteen reps. I followed the same exercise program both months except the second month I followed each set of squats with dumbbell pullovers for the chest. I hope the information will prove useful.

While researching a paper for school I came across some interesting facts. An article dealing with steroids and strength building mentioned an experiment conducted in 1953. The researchers found the optimum protein intake was 18.7 per cent. Some subjects were given up to 40 per cent of the calories in their diet as protein, but it was concluded that any amount over 18.7 per cent was wasted. This would mean that a person eating 3,000 calories would get 561 calories from protein and at four calories for each gram of protein, this would work out at 140 grams of protein. These test subjects were on steroids so perhaps the non-steroid user would need less because steroids are known to aid nitrogen retention. This seems to debunk the idea that bodybuilders need 300-400 grams of protein daily.

Sincerely,

Dave Simmons
