    Diet of seventies BB

    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.
    Any input?

    I mean food you eat when getting ready for a competition (Pre-contest). I thought that was self explanatory...
    Sweet potatos, chicken breast... you know, Bodybuilders actually eat differently from the average coaching potato.

    I think arnold was having toast,eggwhites and orange juice. I guess on the day of the contest now they wouldn't be eating the toast and drinking OJ but back then they got big for contests, I don't really think anyone changed their diet because it was the same year round. I think arnold said something in the breakfast scene like "Well they could've had the contest next month so you(referring to Lou) could've come in shape, but then I would've got bigger so it doesn't really matter". Levrone did the same sorta thing, except he stopped training entirely when he wasn't preparing for a show.

    i think you are reading a little to into the show and details. its not like arnold and lou were doing the o the next day either, its a movie.
    notice doctor meds were left out of the show also.

    sack lunches and boxes were the norm in the 70s. arnie would carry 6 chicken
    breasts,water,and plain
    bland rice in a lunch box daily for protein intake and clean meals.

    if anything older bbers had to work harder with their diets and food then todays standards.

    they didn't have protein bars at gas stations on the road or have supplements that tasted like deserts. arnold in his book gave his homemade protein shake recipes. didn't sound the most apetizing.

    Ide like to see also.

    Im sure the diets were differnt back in the 60s and 70s. But, so was every thing.

    I dont think these guys had a off season where they packed on mass size like Lee, or Ronnie and had to start dropping weight like crazy to make show weight. I think Arnold Looked about the same all year. I think he came to the O at his leanest, but even in his off season from the pictures Ive seen, he was still pretty lean. I think thier diets stays close to the same all year.

    Maybe it was all the weed he smoked back then that was giving him the munchies, for a big old bowl of pasta. =)

    I bought "The Bodybuilder's Nutrition Book", by Dr Franco Columbu, off Amazon.com.

    He wrote it in 1985 so it's pretty oldschool, and gives an insight into what he and Arnold did back in the day. In one section he gives a sample diet leading up to the Olympia, 8-10wks before, 2 weeks before, the day before and the day of the competition.

    He also has sample diets for competitive and non-competitive bodybuilders, those who train a certain number of times a week, fast or slow metabolism, macronutrient breakdowns, etc.

    If you read the book pumping iron,which I highly recommend. Its actually better than the movie. At the universe they talk about having trouble finding safe food where they were. Im 43 I remember the early protein shakes tasting like crap, you would have to drink it and then sit for a few minutes so you didnt throw it up. It mixed as well as sawdust. lol

    I think they pretty much ate "normal" for the most, only with a lot of eggs and meat. Come contest time Arnold himself has said he didn't really change what he ate, he just ate less of it.
    It's UriEl btw

    Things I will take any chance I get to make fun of:

    -HIT
    -Frank Zane as Mr. Olympia
    -Biceptz boyz
    -Fat powerlifters talking thrash about bodybuilding while claiming to close the #x gripper
    -Overtraining
    -"How can I look like >random 140lbs guy<?"
    -HIT
    -Self-righteous guys who try to make everybody sound racist.
    -Phil Heath for Mr. Olympia
    -Strength workouts for bodybuilding

    I'll keep updating the list.

    LOL even franco said to arnold once - 'i cant drink that - its like cement'

    arnold on the other hand didnt care. in his unathorized biography his old pals in austria said that he claimed if he had to eat a kilo of **** to put on muscle then he would do it. that determination.

    thats a crazy diet. its not that much protein at all, compared to today's bodybuilders, but i guess it worked for them i mean you cant argue with their results. i guess they just lifted heavy everyday haha.
    The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides with the iniquities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who in the name of charity and good will shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon those with great vengeance and with furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know that my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee.
