    What would sandow eat?

    I'm so amazed that Eugene sandow managed to get strong and lean in the late 19th century without crazy supplements, myfitnesspal or a weird diet. So I'm curious to know what kinda food did he eat?

    What did Milo of Croton eat? He was able to squat 800 pounds, more than 2000 years ago. Raw.
    And I'm pretty sure Cell-Tech does not date back that far.

    Jamie Lewis in his Chaos and Pain blog routinely does writeups over the years of various "badasses of the week" many of whom are old school strong men and he does compile whatever information he can research on their eating habits. Worth digging through if you are interested in that sort of thing.

    The general diets of strongmen back then were usually pretty similar.

    Eggs, meat, fish, potatoes, milk, bread, butter, beer. All the good stuff. A ton of it.

    Here is the Wikipedia about Bruce Lee's diet. While not a bodybuilder, dude was ripped and in outstanding physicial shape.

    According to Linda Lee Cadwell, soon after he moved to the United States, Lee started to take nutrition seriously and developed an interest in health foods, high-protein drinks and vitamin and mineral supplements. He later concluded that in order to achieve a high-performance body, one could not fuel it with a diet of junk food, and with "the wrong fuel" one's body would perform sluggishly or sloppily.[91] Lee also avoided baked goods and refined flour, describing them as providing calories which did nothing for his body.[92]

    Lee consumed green vegetables and fruit every day. He always preferred to eat Chinese or other Asian food because he loved the variety that it had. Some of Lee's favorite Chinese dishes were beef in oyster sauce, tofu and steak and liver.[93] He also became a heavy advocate of dietary supplements, including Vitamin C, Lecithin granules, bee pollen, Shilajit, Vitamin E, rose hips (liquid form), wheat germ oil, Acerola – C and B-Folia.[94]

    Lee disliked dairy food although he felt that for building muscle he must consume milk. As a result he only ate dairy as part of cereals and protein drinks, usually using powdered milk instead of fresh milk. Lee's diet included protein drinks; he always tried to consume one or two daily, but discontinued drinking them later on in his life. They typically included non-instant powdered milk which is reported to have a higher concentration of calcium than other forms of powdered milk, eggs, wheat germ, peanut butter, banana, brewers yeast for its B vitamins, and Inositol and Lecithin supplements.[95] Linda Lee recalls Bruce Lee's waist fluctuated between 26 and 28 inches (66 to 71 centimetres). "He also drank his own juice concoctions made from vegetables and fruits, apples, celery, carrots and so on, prepared in an electric blender", she said.[citation needed]

    According to Lee, the size of portions and number of meals were just as important. He would usually consume four or five smaller meals a day rather than a couple of large meals, and would boost his metabolism by eating small healthy snacks such as fruits throughout the day.[95] Fruit and vegetables provided him with the richest source of carbohydrates; he was particularly keen on carrots which would make up one half of the contents of the drink, with the remaining being split between the other fruits and vegetables. The reason why Lee was so keen on juicing vegetables and fruits is that he believed it allowed the body to assimilate many nutrients more easily. The enzymes in the juiced vegetables acting as organic catalysts which increase the metabolism and absorption of nutrients. Given that most of these enzymes are destroyed when vegetables are cooked, Lee would try to consume them raw.[96]

    Lee often drank a royal jelly and ginseng drink as they contain B-complex vitamins, including a high concentration of vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid) and vitamin B6 (pyridoxine), acetylcholine, hormones, and eighteen amino acids which allow for a quick energy boost.[96] In traditional Chinese medicine, ginseng is also said to improve circulation, increase blood supply, allow quicker recovery times after exhaustion and stimulating the body.[97] In addition, Lee regularly drank black tea, often with honey or with milk and sugar.[98]

    There is no spoon.

    Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: For I am the baddest man in the valley.

    We all only have today and right now, but without death being pressed upon us we hide behind our false pretense of immortality. - Lvisaa

    I wouldn't worry about specific things he ate. A lot of strongmen of old just ate what they wanted and some just got plastered all the time. Some of them preferred drinking a lot of cream and some didn't really eat all that much (I think Maxick was like that or one of the strongmen of old). I wouldn't say they all ate similarly or differently. They just ate what they liked and what they liked was different than each other.

    Here's Saxon's diet:
    "For breakfast they ate 24 eggs and 3 pounds of smoked bacon; porridge with cream, honey, marmalade and tea with plenty of sugar. At three o'clock they had dinner: ten pounds of meat was consumed with vegetables (but not much potatoes); sweet fruits, raw or cooked, sweet cakes, salads, sweet puddings, cocoa and whipped cream and very sweet tea. Supper, after the show, they had cold meat, smoked fish, much butter, cheese and beer. Following this they had a chat and at one o'clock went to bed."

    Additionally, Saxon loved to get hammered. He drank a lot apparently.

    As a side note, the constant leanness these guys achieved had nothing to do with WHAT they ate. These guys trained and trained hard. Everything they did was pretty much running on instinct. They weren't lazy like most people are now and most of them were doing a ton of shows to show off their strengths. Their lives were incredibly active and they actually understood their own body. Most people now barely can tell if they're going to get sick or anything. Zero intuition. Get some of dat instincts and you could be the same.
    “Go back?" he thought. "No good at all! Go sideways? Impossible! Go forward? Only thing to do! On we go!" So up he got, and trotted along with his little sword held in front of him and one hand feeling the wall, and his heart all of a patter and a pitter.”

Some of them preferred drinking a lot of cream and some didn't really eat all that much (I think Maxick was like that or one of the strongmen of old). I wouldn't say they all ate similarly or differently. They just ate what they liked and what they liked was different than each other.

    Here's Saxon's diet:
    "For breakfast they ate 24 eggs and 3 pounds of smoked bacon; porridge with cream, honey, marmalade and tea with plenty of sugar. At three o'clock they had dinner: ten pounds of meat was consumed with vegetables (but not much potatoes); sweet fruits, raw or cooked, sweet cakes, salads, sweet puddings, cocoa and whipped cream and very sweet tea. Supper, after the show, they had cold meat, smoked fish, much butter, cheese and beer. Following this they had a chat and at one o'clock went to bed."

    Additionally, Saxon loved to get hammered. He drank a lot apparently.

    As a side note, the constant leanness these guys achieved had nothing to do with WHAT they ate. These guys trained and trained hard. Everything they did was pretty much running on instinct. They weren't lazy like most people are now and most of them were doing a ton of shows to show off their strengths. Their lives were incredibly active and they actually understood their own body. Most people now barely can tell if they're going to get sick or anything. Zero intuition. Get some of dat instincts and you could be the same.
    Loving that breakfast!
