Old School Diet and Nutrition Secrets

Hail to the Dinosaurs!

The other day I was thinking about
how amazingly strong so many old-
timers were -- at relatively light

For example, Tony Terlazzo weighed 148
pounds and military pressed 260 pounds.

That's 112 pounds over his own bodyweight --
in the military press -- in official competition --
with three eagle-eyed judges watching the lift.

And since this was back in the early 1940's,
we know that it was a drug-free lift. No
roidskies. 100 percent natural.

Now, just to be clear -- there are very few men
of any bodyweight who can military press 260
pounds -- and most who can weigh MUCH MORE
than Tony Terlazzo weighed.

And Terlazzo was not alone in being super strong
in comparison to his bodyweight. There were many
old-timers who were super strong at fairly light

I have a theory about this. I believe that the
old-timers flourished on a diet of natural,
chemical-free foods. What we would now
call organic foods.

They ate meat, eggs and vegetables.

The dessert of choice was fresh fruit.

The vegetables and fruit were fresh -- and
often came straight from the garden or
direct from a local farmer.

They enjoyed healthy, nutritious home-cooked

There were no "convenience" foods. No "fast"

They ate far less refined food than we eat

They consumed far less in the way of
chemicals, additives, emulsifiers, and
other chemicals and artificial

There were no GMO's in their food.

There were no antibiotics in their food.

They ate little or no sugar.

They avoided high carbohydrate foods.

They avoided deep-fried foods.

They didn't stuff themselves with corn, soy,
and vegetable oils, as so many do in  the
modern world.

Many of them were first or second generation
immigrants.  Their families came from rural
Europe. They were used to simple foods and
simple meals, and that's what they grew up

And as a result, they grew up lean and strong
and muscular.

When they became interested in weightlifting
and weight training, they quickly built plenty
of lean, powerful muscle.

It was the perfect combination of strength
training and diet.

I cover this kind of diet and nutrition program
in Knife, Fork, Muscle. Readers have called it
the best book ever written about real world,
no-nonsense diet and nutrition for strength
training and muscle building.

I agree, but I wrote the book, so I'm biased.

But I do know this. If you want to build the
kind of pound-for-pound strength and power
that Tony Terlazzo had, you need to train
right and you need to eat right. And an
old-school diet and nutrition program
will help you enormously.

As always, thanks for reading and have a
great day. If you train today, make it a good

Yours in strength,
