Old School Nutrition


Alberta, CAN

I've just finished reaing the new book and think it's great.

I was just wondering what the "old school" take on nutrition is? These days it seems that, along the lines of HVT, people basically recommend just eating a lot of food. Based on my weight, I've read calorie ranges anywhere from 2800 - 4000. Now, this is a pretty big range and I'm not looking for a specific number - there's too many individual variables involved and it's been touched on several times already on this site.

How did the old school body builders eat? Did they count calories or just eat sensibly? It seems as though they were able to stay relatively lean year round and still put on size.

Thanks for any help.

Pretty sure they just ate when they were hungry. I'm not sure there's much innovation that can be done in the way of nutrition, meat is meat and vegies are vegies.
