I was re watching Pumping Iron yesterday, and something struck me as strange. Apparently, they were all preparing themselves for the Olympia, but they didn't seem to be dieting properly for it - not in today's standards at least.
I mean, there is that scene in which Lou is having lunch/dinner with his family, and the table looks like the typical all Italian meal.
Then there is Columbu with his relatives back in Sicily, and I don't think they were eating BB food...
Of course this could be all shots for the movie, no more than that, and I don't remember they actually EATING the food. Ok, but then in the morning which seemed like the competition's day, Arnold sit's with the Ferrigno's and the breakfast doesn't seem too fitting for the morning you are going on stage for the Olympia.
