Changed my life!

The information provided in this show is invaluable. When I first started listening I took advantage of all the free material they have out there, and that was just the tip of the iceberg. MAPS Anabolic has me in the best shape of my life at 34.5!

There is some good information in each episode, but they are generally just trying to sell you their products the entire time, so it comes off as more of an infomercial than a podcast.

I visited a porta potty business some years back, and was curious about the mound of m&m’s. Found out they were vitamins with the name still clearly visible on them. I started eating flinstones chewables the next day, gummies weren’t available then…
