So would you say the way you ate in the 70's is the
closest thing to the Anabolic Diet? Did you notice any
joint problems low carbing during the week?

Ric's Corner: Bodybuilding Diet of the 70's
Rating (13 votes):
Added: March 2, 2010
In the Venice Beach of Lore, the Valhalla of the bodybuilding diet was the all-you-can eat smorgasbords. The big guys of the time regularly closed these places down by literally eating them out of business. There was no magic formula to the diet: lean cuts of protein, eggs, cottage cheese, salads, and of course the cheat meal Sundays.
