Hail to the Dinosaurs!
I receive many questions from readers
asking about the best foods for gaining
Or for post workout recovery.
Or for a pre-workout power blast.
So, to save time, I'm going to talk
about something thing that will do
all of the above. It definitely
ranks as super food -- in fact,
it's probably the VERY BEST
thing that a serious lifter can eat.
No, it's not steak and eggs.
Not steak and potatoes.
And it's not the dreaded and
dreadful Get Big Drink.
This is something that not only
is good for you -- but something

Try one or two for breakfast and

Thanks for reading, and have a
great day. If you train today, make
it a good one!
Yours in strength,

familiar, it is. I borrowed it from
Dr. Ken Leistner, who ran various
versions of the article in the April
issue of Powerlifting USA for many
And every time he ran it, readers would
write in and ask, "What kind of cheese-
cake is best for increasing my squat?"
P.S. 2. In all seriousness, if you want
to gain tons of strength and muscle,
skip the cheesecake -- but grab
