    I went back through the entire book this weekend. Arnold does list three diets in the Encyclopedia, but they are all bullsht. There is no way he or any body else built a body with the diet in the book!!!!! The Diets consist of only THREE meals a day. Breakfast is like two eggs oatmeal and fruit.....anyway, if ya'll still want me to post them, I will, but I think they are worthless.

    You're right - those were bogus - the 3 meals/day in the book. He always described his diet and exercise in much more "normal" terms when interviewed.

    I don't know if you were looking for his cutting diets or non-cutting diets, but I can tell you a little about his normal, non-cutting diets. He never bulked like today's guys do, but he did have a different diet when contests were more than a few months out.

    My father used to work out with him and they'd occasionally (not often) eat and discuss it - his off-season, non-cutting was often 6,000 to 9,000 calories (even 10k cal now and then) per day. Three hamburgers and a tuna steak.... but no bread. I don't vant zee bread. Not every day was the same, but the big guys then were eating massive amounts, even by today's standards. But the weight he put on was nothing like today's guys, putting on 40 pounds. Arnie might have put on 20 or 25, max.

    Interviewed, he ate three square meals, hit the gym, and ran 3x/week. In reality, lots and lots of eating, health shakes with egg protein, brewer's yeast (and a little whisky for flavor), mass gainer meals, etc.

    Anyway, Today's bulking diets will teach you more than Arnold's anyway. The science of bulking and cutting has improved hugely.

    Arnold himself admitted that back then bodybuilders used to put on a lot of fat as nutrition was not as advanced as today. He advises today to eat healthy year round to avoid fat gain.
    I disgaree with your stating of 'bulk diet science' - there is no such thing. This was created by the bodybuilding world and it is absolutely not required. IMO one dosent need a bulking/cutting cycle - what is the point of gaining 40 pounds and then losing 20 to acquire 20 pounds of muscle - why 'overeat' in the first place. People bulk because they are impatient - thats my take on this.

    I don't disagree with you, but he has absolutely no choice of what to say, now, since he's so widely listened to for health advice. Try explaining "bulking" to 99.5% of the population who has largely no idea how to be healthy. So he says we should all eat healthy. Well, no kidding, Arnold.

    But he knows as much as the next guy that competitive bodybuilding, in many respects, has nothing to do with building a better year-round physique. Look at Lee Priest in the off season. Looks like a big tub of goo.

    Anyway, in relation to the science of bulking, I use the word loosely in relation to bulking. To me, it is simply less haphazard than it's been in years and decades past. Bulking now is far more understood and can be better controlled, and the effect we have is bodybuilders being able to bulk more (more non-muscle weight, more fat) before turning back to cutting.

    I remember seeing Frank Zane guest pose with a small pot belly - it was the oddest thing. But 20 pounds on an Arnold or Franco or Roger Callard or any of the older guys was a very small % gain - not like today, with Ronnie gaining 60 pounds in the off season.

    Anyway, I also have a hard time with the concept of bulking, but I'm about to try it for the first time, so we'll see.

    Come on yall. Everybody knows and if they dont then here you go.

    When you Bulk you OverEat to Ensure the Right Amount (Abundance) of Nutrients are around to Produce Muscle (Repair and Growth)

    When you Cut, you Restrict Calories to Ensure that you Burn that BF% Off.

    I Feel that There will Always be a Bulking/Cutting Routines Simply because Its Tried and True.
