As a kid growing up in Las Vegas, Nevada Ryback Reeves had one dream: to become a WWE superstar. Ryback went from ringing the bell at a live event in Las Vegas as a kid (which he won via radio contest) to main eventing WWE pay-per-views. In all those years Ryback spent trying to make it to the WWE, and even while he was employed by WWE, he learned a lot about health and fitness, wellness, supplements and his body. Ryback has leveraged this information learned over the years to introduce his own line of supplements: Feed Me More Nutrition.
History with The Big Guy
I met Ryback for the first time back in 2013. WWE called me to come in as an “extra.” As an extra you get a tryout match prior to a TV taping and you might get called upon to do a segment on TV with one of their superstars. I was immediately drawn to Ryback because he was a throwback of my youth. He looked immortal like Hulk Hogan and The Ultimate Warrior, something you don’t see in the wrestling industry today. I had seen Ryback many times on TV but never up close and in-person. I had a goal of putting on size, so what better person to ask than The Big Guy himself.
I will admit I was nervous approaching Ryback for the first time. I had the opportunity to speak with him for an extended period of time, something he did not have to do. I asked him about gaining size, various exercises I could do and supplements I could take. Ryback spent over 30-minutes with me going through so many aspects of bodybuilding. You could see the excitement in his eyes and hear it in his voice. Ryback had a passion for bodybuilding. He had a passion for health. He had a passion for supplements.
Conversation With The Big Guy Ryback
It comes as no surprise to me that Ryback’s “life after wrestling” would be dedicated to the world of sports nutrition. This is why I was excited to be able to talk to Ryback about his new venture, Feed Me More Nutrition, and learn about his supplement line. There are a lot of unknowns yet about the line but I set out to get some answer that I had about it to share with all of you here at FitnessInformant.com. These are all actual responses from Ryback.
What Is The Story Behind Feed Me More Nutrition?
Feed Me More Nutrition is something I have wanted to do for years now. I have always been obsessed with supplements and nutrition from a very young age. I take great pride in looking the way that I do naturally going on 35 years of age. In a day and age in wrestling where larger than life characters are further and fewer between, I feel I am more of a throwback to those larger physiques of years past, without the use of PED’s.
Since walking away from my full time television job with the WWE I have the time and the resources to finally make this goal happen. The results I have gotten over the years and my obsession with always wanting to improve and learn more have provided the energy and fuel in order to make Feed Me More Nutrition a major player in the supplement industry. I’m at a point in my life where as much as I want more and more success; I also want to help people and help educate people that we can look and feel great without putting our body in danger. My heart and soul has gone into this, and I wake up each and everyday excited in anticipation of the launch of Feed Me More Nutrition!
When Does Feed Me More Nutrition Officially Launch?
As of right now we are scheduled for the beginning of December to launch the first three products. We were hoping for a November launch, but I have been very specific in wanting everything at a certain level, and when dealing with thousands of units of each product, making sure things are done right from top to bottom is beyond important.
What Products Will Be Available at Launch?
Where Will People Be Able To Purchase Feed Me More Nutrition Products?
FeedMeMore.com is where they will initially be sold online and I am currently working on getting them in select Nutrition Stores in Las Vegas and other parts of the country. The goal is to get worldwide distribution, but I am going to be very hands on to make sure things go as planned.
Who Formulated Your Products?
The formulas are created by myself, but I am working with ABH Pharma and their food scientists have helped tremendously in the flavoring department.
Are All Your Products Made in the USA?
Yes, everything is made in the USA.
Will Feed Me More Nutrition Be Available Overseas?
International shipping will be made available through FeedMeMore.com until a worldwide distribution deal is in place.
How is Feed Me More Nutrition Different Than the Rest of the Sports Nutrition Industry?
There are some very good companies out there, but one thing the majority of them have not evolved on is eliminating the use of artificial sweeteners like aspartame and sucralose. The goal of a nutritional supplement is to not only make you look and feel better, but to also be good for you internally as well. Any company using aspartame and sucralose (as these are dirt cheap sweeteners) either don’t have health of the consumer in mind, or don’t care. Feed Me More Nutrition uses Stevia a plant based sweetener and while more expensive, is truly superior to aspartame and sucralose.
Another problem is a lot of these companies use athletes who are using performance enhancing drugs to endorse and market their brand. That isn’t to say the supplements from other companies don’t work, because a lot of them do, but the athletes using PED’s don’t have to rely on proper supplementation alone. I have been drug tested my entire career in wrestling and admit to using PED’s in my early 20’s, but had to learn proper nutrition and what ingredients and herbs actually worked, in order to keep my physique at a certain level.
Every athlete works hard, I just chose to go a certain path and have the experience of knowing what is legit and what isn’t. The formulations I have created are specifically from individual ingredients I have learned work over the years, and even better work well together. Feed Me More Nutrition has created formulas that don’t just put one or two ingredients that work we have literally put more of the best ingredients that synergistically work well together into each and every formula. The end result is premium sports nutrition supplements that will not only do as they say, but also be good for your health. Everything created is because I have personally used them, to help assist in the results and physique I have achieved over the years.
How Will You Establish Credibility with Your Product Line?
That is something I have personally spoken to ABH Pharma about, as they are manufacturing the Feed Me More Nutrition line. They are a top notch well respected company and to ensure the products meet all label claims 3rd party testing will randomly be done at times, so the consumer can have peace of mind, as well as seeing that I personally am committed to excellence with the Feed Me More brand. Not to forget also, but I use these products myself and if there is one thing to know about Ryback Reeves, it is I don’t short change myself!
What Product Are You Most Excited About In Your Line?
There are so many unique and cool supplements that will be released over the next year that it is hard to not be excited about all of them! If I had to choose just one though it would be The Big Guy All Natural Testosterone Booster. Personally suffering from low testosterone while younger and then being on testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) for five years I was hell bent on finding something that would restore my natural testosterone. Being 35 I am at a point where I am looking to eventually have children and being on TRT doesn’t help my chances with that.
Over the years I have kept track of individual herbs and ingredients that worked. When I walked away from the WWE I decided to conduct an experiment to see if I could restore my natural testosterone levels. I compiled a list of all these ingredients and had ABH Pharma make me samples in tablet form. I have had blood work performed multiple times since beginning this experiment and as of this very moment for the first time in 10 years my natural testosterone levels are totally normal. Add to that my luteniezing hormone (LH) and follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) are both in the upper normal range when previously were nearly at zero!
Everyone I have had use the samples have all seen great results and look and feel better than before they started. I will be having other test subjects do a two month run of The Big Guy All Natural Testosterone Booster along with doing blood work before and after to truly show the safety and effectiveness of this product. I am in this for the long haul and the number one driving force with Feed Me More Nutrition is that the products actually work and are of the highest quality. People will see this instantly and feel my passion and drive in making Feed Me More Nutrition the best it can possibly be. I am joining an over saturated market, but Feed Me More Nutrition is different and will raise the bar and standards of sports nutrition supplements!
