My first experience with Weider was back in the early 80's with their milk & egg protein powders.    You'd dump a scoop of the protein in a glass of juice or milk, stir the fuck out of it, and "poof" the powder would float back up to the top.  The shit just wouldn't mix properly.   There was no shaker cups or hand blenders back in those days.   Our family didn't even have a regular blender at the time, so I would spend 15 minutes just trying to blend the damn protein shake so I could drink the horrid thing.

My first supplement was Weider's Dynamic Weight Gainer back in '88 or '89. My best friend's stepfather was using it. But, he didn't like it. So, he gave it away.

It tasted weird, not disgusting, just weird.

Hahahah yes! I remember that powder, I got it down to a tee by using a fork and adding the powder first and adding warm water little by little until I beat it into a smooth paste (no homo) then i'd add cold water and couple of ice cubes  Grin Still tasted like egg powder though  Lips sealed

Everything was "Weider" when i first started lifting (supplements/magazines/IFBB and NPC/books/courses) Joe had a monopoly on bodybuilding (and i always wondered what would happen when/if he dies) He truly is (like him or hate him) "the father of bodybuilding"....

Joe is 93. He can't live forever. When he goes, his life should be celebrated. I'm glad I got to meet him. Our lives would be much different (those that lift, juice, diet) had it not had been for him. Do we agree with everything he's done? No. But he's done alot more good than bad, and for that he should be remembered.

This makes no sense. Maybe if you said those who do this for a living, you would have a leg to stand on.

Close to 100 what do you expect.
Dude lived a long life, sold a lot of magazines, sold a lot of gym equipment, and brought Arnold to the masses. And I willing to bet that the IFBB will change after he passes away.

His brother died a billionaire, I wonder where that money went, and did Jos and Ben have kids?

There's a chance I'll be banned over this comment but I suspect some of that money went to Jewish charities and organisations

who knows, but Ben did have a book out on how Napoleon died, and had other vested interests.
It would be funny, if Joe says that upon his passing, that the winner (if he has over $1 billion of his own money) of HIS Mr. Olympia contest will receive 1 (or 2) million dollars. But, seriously doubt that will happened. And I don't think that he likes where bbing has gone.

I think he was also a real fan of Flex Wheeler's physique as well.

I may be wrong but I think it is just the NPC that is non profit.

Joe Weider was bodybuilding. The sport turned to shit a little before Ben passed.
