Okay, found a link with some great stuff on “the history of nutrition in bodybuilding”:
Blair is also mentioned on that page. I knew he changed his name, I just couldn’t remember what his real name was (Irvin Johnson; he changed his name to Rheo H. Blair because a fortuneteller once told him “H” is a fortunate letter, or so the legend goes…).
Anyways, the Hormone Precursor Diet is close to the bottom of the page. There’s a lot of other great stuff on there, as well.

That’s it, tada. Great post. I’ve read everything I could find on Blair over the past 5 yrs. Both he & Gironda played a big role in making Larry Scott. Scott said that himself. I’m thinking of trying this for the 6-8 weeks. Will see if I get much drainage from all the cream.
It’s mighty tasty & leaves you feeling full & you never go hungry either!
