On today’s episode of Live Lean TV, I’m addressing how a supplement company stole my before and after pictures and used them to scam people.
There have been a few pictures of me floating around the internet.
Quite a few of you have seen them and have been asking me if it’s true.
Did I take “something” to get my physique, and do I continue to take “something” to maintain it?
And when I say “something”, I think they mean drugs.
Okay, let’s just jump right into it.
About 6 weeks ago, I received a question on my Facebook fan page about my before and after pictures in an ad, for some sort of “pill”.
Let me just clear this up right now, so people can stop asking me about it.
So does that mean these are my 4 week results?
The “Week 1” photo was taken in February, 2010.
The “Week 4” photo was taken in July, 2011.
“I couldn’t be any happier with the results. I gained 16 lbs of muscle in 4 weeks. No Special Diet, No Intense Exercise.”
Do I really even need to answer that?
You know this goes against everything I stand for, and is complete bullsh!t.
I’ve never tried it, nor am I being paid for it.
And if you haven’t figured it out yet, my images were stolen from my website.
This happens to me all the time.
Here’s another example of my photo being used in an ad that I was not compensated for.
Last time I checked, my name was Brad on my ID.
Supposedly they’re also using my images as Facebook ads as well.
So you may be thinking, why don’t you just contact them to take the pictures down or just sue them?
Well, all the links are fake on the page, and they just re-direct you to the buy page.
So let me answer the real question.
No I did not take drugs, or any magic pills, to get my physique in 4 weeks, or maintain it 365 days a year.
Here’s what I really did to build and maintain my physique.
It’s called HWSWD.
Hard Work, Smart Work, and Dedication.
I’m not trying to be the most ripped dude on the planet.
And even though I get asked all the time, I don’t compete in bodybuilding shows.
So there is no need for me to be the most ripped guy in the world.
I do this, because I love the way it makes me feel internally.
It’s also my calling to inspire others that it is possible to Live Lean 365 days a year, naturally.
I don’t lend my name to endorse many products.
But when I do, you’ll usually find them on my “Items I Dig” page here.
So that’s it.
I hope I never have to answer that question again.
Living Lean is simple, but it’s not easy.
Just take some HWSWD, and you will eventually get there, naturally.
Keep Living Lean.
