You gotta love the online stores that sell to muscleheads.
There are all the products that promise to give you a mind-blowing, explosive “pump,” promoted in language that makes you wonder if Viagra or something like that is involved. There are the thermogenic products — some safer-sounding than others — and the protein bars and liquid supplements, can’t live without ’em, whose main selling point is “This doesn’t taste as gross as the last protein bar you ate, really.”
I knocked my Albino Ex from 265 down to 220 (and a pair of big guns) using a diet that started off in the morning with a protein bar, and that was when the only ones on the market tasted like half-dried-up acrylic paint, so don’t scoff, but still, it’s hard to make them sexy.
Then there is the low carb pasta. They finally invented one I like. I logged on to order some today. I hadn’t been planning on including lasagna, and it looks like a good thing:
Please note: We cannot guarantee that the lasagna noodles will arrive in perfect condition. Due to the manufacturing process, the box used to package the lasagna contains extra space. This extra space allows the product to move about during transit and can cause the noodles to break. We will continue to place extra care in packaging your order to allow the least amount of movement; however, it is beyond our control to eliminate breakage. Due to this, we are unable to provide any compensation for broken noodles.
I’m just imagining the phone conversation.
