Vince Gironda Stated Bodybuilding Is 85% Nutrition
During the forty years I’ve been a bodybuilder seeking greater muscle size and delineation, I have experimented with every imaginable diet combination.

Vince Gironda recommended manganese for joint problems, and I see that it is one of the ingredients in the Joint-EZ formula. What do you think of glucosamine? How does it compare in effectiveness to manganese? Thanks again for your advice.
I’m a former fat guy turned fitness devotee. The magazines would call me a mesomorph. I’m currently at around 15% body fat, following an extended cutting period. I felt that my body was no longer responding to diet after such a long time, so I’ve decided to take a six-week break from cutting to see if it helps my fat-loss progress when I return.
