(hope this doesnt turn out to be a ramble)
I just started the S2B program. I too saw the $250 a month for personalized care. He ALSO offers a mapped out, more general program for $197 for the year. If you are buying supplements at all, just sub out one months worth of HOT-ROX and NO2 enhancer. Even if you aren’t buying lots of supplements, and keep running around in circles as to whay/when/why to eat, it is money well spent. He tells you EVERYTHING to eat, and every lift to do in the gym.
I bought Gourmet Nutrition several months ago, and like you apparently, it really has done nothing for me. So, with his prgram, you remove all of the 'well shit, how am I going to put this bodybuilders chili in my plan". He just tells you EXACTLY what to eat when. In the program, he gives you several GREAT tips on how to minimize time in The kitchen, and elminate the “I dont have time” excuses.
Because that was my problem. I knew EXACTLY what I should be doing, but my problem was implementation. You get access to a bunch of lectures that really tie together all the information he has laid out in his articles. And in those lectures, one of his mantras is that it is not about the food. It is about implementation. You may have the most optimized diet in the world, but unless you follow it, it will do nothing for you.
My problem was with all the information, I would second guess or jump off my diet plan and never really get anywhere. With this program, all I have to do is follow the program. done. no second guessing because JB and his team formulated it. I know it is right. so, I just shut up and start cooking.
I just need to sack up, spend a couple hours a week cooking and a few more dollars in the grocery store. BUT, I can say it will be better than constantly bouying between 12 and 16% body fat for the rest of my life. This program is about habituating to a healthy lifestyle. Changing your habits for life.
So, yes, I am recommending it for those who like me have a hard time with implementation. Some people can just grill up 4 lbs of chicken, put it in a ziploc bag and go. Many others can just get a bunch of steroids and not worry about eating clean. I am trying to maintian my health for life. I think this is the crutch I need to get my ball rolling.
I really cant speak to the results, but I think this is the culmination of all the research and study that JB and team have done through the years. I think everyone on this board would agree that the information given out by them is to be taken as body building gospel. Plus, JB and team have been tweaking their nutritional advice for thousands of clients through the years.
Upshot, I think it is worth a stab if you are asking a question like “Eating Like Crazy, Sound Advice?” You will short circuit 4-6 years of not getting to where you want to be.
Rant over. If you guys want, I could post progress shots on the forum. you can see how the program rolls for me. I could be the S2B guinnie pig, although I think there is another guy who is doing that. Or, if you want feel free to ask question. I am more than happy to oblige with my opinion.
