    It's kind of depressing that he died at 58 of a stroke with such a primal like way of living. lol But hell, he must have a hell of 58 years until the stroke cut it short. Maybe a little bit more red wine would have helped him out?

    Eugene Sandow was born in 1867 and died in 1925. This guy managed to build a level of strength, athleticism, and overall fitness that puts many modern athletes to absolute shame, and he did all of it without creatine, 5 different kinds of protein powder, advanced recovery formulas, exercise stacks, fat burners, shred systems, and all that other stuff. He did it with willpower, a good training routine, and a diet based on real foods. Here's what he says about his diet and habits:

    "I do not care for anything intoxicating (hard liquor), but do enjoy a beer or some wine on occasion. I never touch tea or coffee. I eat "plain", wholesome food for the most part, but do "indulge" on occasion. I have my meals at regular intervals, and prefer simple foods that are easy to digest. I chew my food well and believe strongly that mastication is a key to good health. I believe a good nights sleep is very important in maintaining health. I am not able, due to my performance schedule, to go to bed before midnight, so I remain in bed asleep until 11 typically."

    Hmmmm....that all sounds pretty damn familiar.

    No clue, but eating real food doesn't make you invincible or ensure a long and healthy life, messed up things can still happen, life is shitty like that.
    Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who has said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own experience.

    In the mind of the beginner, there are many possibilities; in the mind of the expert, there are few.

    Haha exactly. This is why I just cannot stress over nutrition THAT much. I sent something to a co-worker regarding food and he, in jest, sent me a pic that said "Eat Right. Exercise. Die Anyway." and I thought it was hilarious and painfully true. Obviously, enjoying a good quality of life is important, but never for a moment think this shit is going to make you bullet proof. It'll just make living way more awesome.

    Of course eating right can make you bulletproof. It's certainly one of the keys of getting out of the whole sh1t happens mentality.

    I don't understand everybody's hurt feelings. Don't eat shit carb sources (breads mostly that list - long live plantains) and you'll be fine. Also I would hope that if you're going to get butt-hurt that you meet all the other "requirements" as in: you're not fat, you're active, you've been primal at least 2-3 months. If you're not all of those, you don't apply.

    Are you telling me that I'd have been doing backflips all afternoon if all that carbohydrate was plantains?

    Are you serious? You ate bread and beans? Along with a massive meal fried in soybean oil? And you're blaming "carbs"? This has nothing to do with carbohydrate. This has everything to do with you shoveling down toxic food fried in poisonous oil into your mouth in massive quantities that your body didn't need. You overate, and you overate horrible, poisonous food. The only thing edible in your meal were potatoes and plantains, and it wouldn't matter because they were soaked in rancid PUFA oil.
    Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.
