Okay, they don't have to tell the truth, but they're still held to the same standards as everyone else and if you lie about the nutritional values they're going to get caught eventually. The nutritional supplement industry is pretty notorious for having useless products that often border on dangerous to take and doing pretty much anything to make you think the product is going to make you look fantastic with no effort. Stick to the major brands though and do a little research and you should be safe.
Yeah, I didn't mean to come off as in that you shouldn't trust them, but I was just trying to make people aware that they can very well lie on it if they wanted and get away with it for years at a time.
Referring to your comment about the product is going to make you look fantastic with no effort, I have a friend who use to take steroids, something that I wouldn't even think about doing. He thought that they worked without going to the gym. Skipping to the end of the story, 30 pounds of fat added on and slight depression.

I love swimming and sadly I haven't been able to lately because of some foot surgery. Now that the wounds are healed up though I plan on going whenever I can when the weather gets warmer.
To my gym related news.
225 X 16
I felt really good today and almost got my 17th rep up. Number 17 should come easily next week and then I'm starting to get back to my original form of 19 reps. I'm hoping that I can cross into the 20's for the first time this semester.
I also weighed in at 204 pounds today.
