    Unhappy Josef Rakich Fitness meal plan, $50 for one page - Is that real value?

    Hi guys

    Just wondered if anyone else had a view on this.

    I saw Josef Rakich's profile on BB.com and followed the link to his home page. Seemed to look good, so paid $50 for what I thought was going to be a really specific meal plan.

    I completed the reg steps and provided the following:

    Gender
    Age
    What is your main goal?
    Height:
    Weight:
    Body fat Percentage:
    Daily activity level: *
    If you suffer from any food allergies or medical conditions please detail here:

    Any how, two days later I get the attached.. a singular days meal plan, based on more cals that the BB site recommends. No thought as to what supplements Im taking, which I'd assumed he’d ask for as those cals/protein requirements have to be factored in.

    When I received my PDF, I also noted the file/meal plan was created on the 31st May 2010!!

    So essentially I believe all he did was work out the cals, dig out one that he did two years ago and sent it over.

    Now I have sent four emails asking him about this and asked for a refund – even on his site he offers a full money back guarantee.

    * If you are not happy with your purchase i will refund you 100% money back guarantee.
    josefrakichfitness com

    Since then I have showed this to my local gym trainer who’s also a nutritionist.. He shook his head and said he’ll do a seven day one, including taking in to account all my supplements for free.

    Not good value nor great customer service.

    Shame on you for paying $50 for a meal plan, and shame on you for getting a meal plan off your trainer.

    Btw, you definitely should not be trying to lose weight.

    ;(

    Thanks Germaine, my gym trainer said not to cut too much down. 20% body fat so looking to shed some of that and bulk up. I'm trying to mirror the Bobby Parker transformation etc. Really looking to get cut defined.

    He also noted that Id cut too many fats so he's reviewing my own plan this week.

    "texicus" now reading all the stickies lol

    You definitely want to figure out your own macros and diet:meal plan - this will allow you to adapt different foods in situations where you can't have 8oz chicken breast sub in other foods or make changes to your cals/etc as required

    Joseph Rakich writing a plan that involves eating almonds and a chicken breast as a meal. I'm not buying that, in either sense.























    Everyone knows it's chicken and brocolli yo.

    I questioned him on this earlier in his thread:

    http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showth...295933&page=26

    Have yet to receive a response. I love how people rush to defend him. It literally is: have a good body and people will eat out of your hands.

    Zyzz used to charge $200 per hour for personal training sessions. 200 bucks for an hour!!!

    The only workout guides I would recommend paying for is Jason Ferrugias, and it's basically a SS program - I just prefer it. (I certainly wouldn't recommend illegally downloading it FOR FREE...)

    All the nutritional advice you need you can get on these forums and from Alan Aragon/Lyle Mcdonald.

    What a joke, selling this nonsense...

    hehe - you're right guys. Met the trainer this morning and he's pointed me in the right direction, plus about to read the great article germaine07 posted.

    As for Joself, seems he's going to honor a refund - yay.

    But you're all right, read, read more and get it sorted. Bumped into my local gym trainer this morning. He's told me to read up and then plan what I think is more suited to my needs, then he'll have a look on Monday ;-) Said if he did all the work, Id never learn - fair point!

    You paid $50 for an illiterate & unqualified male to create a meal plan for you just because you saw that he has a low body fat percentage (which he more than likely acquires through special "supplementation")?

    That's good, but I think that Josef should post in this thread and explain what happened here.

    The Rakich is a good dude. He has come a long way in his knowledge. He used to be "bro" up the ass without presenting the entire picture.

    That being said individual designed plans should be treated as such and done accordingly. It's just good business.

    I'm sure he's a good guy but if you are charging for your service and knowledge you think you would take the time to cater to the specific individuals need, not just throw out some bullsh!t bro diet like he did. If you aren't going to take the time to cater to each individual or client maybe he's in the wrong career field.

    Truth. Agree 100%. THat's why I made the comment about individualized plans and "good business".

    Well personal trainers ruin themselves with stupid bullsh!t workout routines & diets. You do have some that actually no proper weight training & programming along with nutrition.

    in this day and age when there is free information on reputable websites like this people would still pay 50 dollars for a meal plan? Amazing.

    Actually, I think it was good value for the money. It was only $50 and you learned a ton... just not about nutrition.

    I'm sure Joseph gets like several meal plan requests a day. I think he learned a long time ago that popular guys like him can make a killing by selling copy-paste and 95% effective meal plans to the common folk. That's why he has no issue with a refund either. Might as well pay the money back to those 5%, the customer base really won't suffer much.

    Though in this case, he maybe got a bit too careless and the OP wasn't as "common" as the majority of the customer base.

    In my local scene most PT-s do the same with copy-paste meal plans and training regiments. Because they work well enough and it's easy money. Little effort needed.

    Those who actually put in days of work into constructing a highly personalized setup for their clients and who are in constant communication with them - also usually have to ask a pretty sizable sum of money to make it worth their time. 50$ isn't that much and I'm not that surprised Rakich isn't that interested into going all nitty-gritty with every single client for that money.
