What has happened so far on the program?

So excluding all holidays I count that I have lost 12 kg in 3 months. Just like from the book, 1 kg per week. Have to admit I have lost my strength in the big 4 exercises, but looking forward to get back my strength and gain as possible lean mass further following Mike’s blog.

What, if anything, almost kept you from buying the book or starting the program?

I am a gym goer for 10 years and tried getting shredded last 4 Springs. Although last year I achieved quite nice physique, I wasn’t counting calories properly and had craving/overrating moments. I haven’t bought Mike’s book yet, but his blog is more than awesome. Following his advice I had the most pleasant time loosing fat, enjoying food and life.

What do you like most about the program?

Actually, I found the program after I quit my diet and didn’t actually follow it, but was simply reading Mike’s blog. However, I can confirm that Mike’s approach in unbelievable, sorry, 100% believable which helps anyone to loose fat and still enjoy life.

How does this program compare with others you’ve tried?

I don’t even exactly remember what programs I was following. First one was simply under eating and starving, then Keto (low-carb, high-protein) and finally carb loading. With his blog advice you don’t need do any magic tricks, simply cut 20-30% of you daily maintenance level, still enjoy food and just listen to some advice which helps to push your diet to another level.

How has what you’ve achieved with your body changed other areas of your life?

Have to admit, what I have achieved made me extremely happy and bit sad. It made me realize that 10 year I was going to gym and wasting my time. I’m extremely happy now that I found this blog and feel on the right track.

Is there anything else you’d like to add?

Mike and his team are not magicians and they don’t tell you completely new stuff which you can’t find on bodybuilding forums and other online sources. But they give you filtered information which will take you to the next level and will help to save loads of wasted time going the wrong way.

Many companies offer a money-back guarantee because they know the majority of dissatisfied customers aren’t going to go through the hassle of actually returning the product to get their money back. We don’t play these games because we don’t have to, the quality of our products makes it unnecessary.

If you order any of our supplements for the first time and don’t like it, you can keep it. Just notify us and we’ll give you a full refund on the spot. No complicated forms and no return necessary.

To protect ourselves from fraud, the It’s-On-Us guarantee is only valid for first time purchases of a product, and redeemable up to three months after purchase. If you bought more than one bottle of a supplement on your first purchase and don’t like it, we would ask that you send the unopened bottles back to us for a refund because we can put them back into our sellable inventory.


Many companies use shipping and handling fees to increase their profit margins, but here at Legion, we hate profits so our shipping is 100% free!

Okay, we do dig on profits, but we also do offer 100% free shipping to everywhere in the world because it makes people you like happy, and that makes us happy.

So, if you live in the United States, your order ships free regardless of order size, and if you live anywhere else, your order ships free when it’s over $99.

Why the restriction on international orders?

Unfortunately shipping outside of the US is very expensive and if we didn't require a minimum order size, we'd lose a lot of money. That said, most customers spend about $100 with us each time they shop, so this setup is a win-win.
