A Look At Star Athletes And Their Weird Food Habits

Video taken from the channel: NESN


Here are some of the odd food habits of athletes: SWEET POTATOES. Endurance athletes are known to eat loads of plain, cooked sweet potatoes, which may be strange to a non-athlete. It’s very CANNED TUNA.

OYSTERS. MUSHROOMS. MCT OIL. Eating habits of the elite are rooted in superstition, strict nutrition protocol, gastric tolerance and the hopes of providing a performance edge.

Here are some of the odd food habits of athletes. Rapp chooses to eat bugs primarily for environmental reasons. Crickets are a shockingly eco-friendly source of lean protein, requiring less water per gram of protein ​than soybeans to produce. From Skittles to chocolate-chip cookies to a single peanut, the sometimes bizarre food obsessions of professional athletes.

The nutritional intake of elite athletes is a critical determinant of their athletic performance and ability to compete both physically and mentally. However, their demanding training and travel schedules in addition to a possible lack of nutritional knowledge may prohibit them from maintaining an optimal dietary intake. Sound scientific data about the nutritional habits of elite athletes are.

All athletes have their go-to meal before competing. Even the NBA Champion Golden State Warriors need their peanut butter and jelly sandwiches before gametime! But, one of the oddest pre-game snacks comes courtesy of Hall of Fame baseball player, Wade Boggs. He isn’t nicknamed ‘The Chicken Man’ for nothing. Pick Up A Mini Stepper For Your Summer Workouts At Amazon; I Used the COVID-19 Pandemic to Try a 5-Day Fast.

This Is What I Learned. The Most Creative Dumbbell Workouts to Build Muscle and Burn. For this article, I focus on the eating habits of elite athletes. Food affects our performance — whether in sports or business — arguably more than any other lifestyle factor. Therefore, I sought to learn how the best athletes in the world eat, and what lessons we might be able to take away and apply to our own lives.

The Weirdest Celebrity Eating Habits of All Time We wouldn’t necessarily peg the country star’s habit of eating a handful of Cheetos at once as being “weird. Eating the Wrong Food. Candy, sweet muffins, chocolate-coated granola bars, chips, and cookies are the wrong foods for young athletes to be snacking on.

Once in a while, on a non-training day, or in the context of other healthy foods is okay, but relying on these foods to sustain a training program or competition is silly.

List of related literature:

Few, if any, of the athletes whose eating habits we’ve glimpsed in this chapter follow the same diet today that they followed before they became world-class athletes.

  • I agree with almost everything presented in this video except the claim regarding the weekly distance run by vegetarians vs omnivores as a function of health. There is ample evidence that running at distances greater than 32 km (20 mi) per week leads to cardiac fibrosis and left ventricular hypertrophy.

  • And which “night” time would you recommend when you get up at 4am? When to start the eating window best and what’s the optimal duration? Thank you

  • No doubt Corona originated in China. Every one of these things can be eaten elsewhere. I ate squid and scorpion first in the US. Snake first in Japan. To say it only exists in China is just xenophobic propaganda.

  • Standard American Diet is killing people. Big Pharma loves obese and diabetic people. 1 meal a day is ideal. Intermittent fasting is even better.

  • quite funny when you say u eat lamb but you don’t eat lamb head. out here in South Africa its our thing (Breakfast, lunch, snack and dinner lol)

  • Viruses wouldnt survive being heated so its a blatant lie that eating these foods spreads any disease. Its more likely that disease is spread from toxic water, ground, and uncooked toxic vegetables.
    So many ignorant fucktard humans have zero clue how life actually works.

  • I been eating one meal a day,u will lose weight without even working out or u can split those calories into 3 meals,just eating less u will lose weight

  • I must say MMORPG videogames have had me on an omad diet without realizing it for YEARS, LMAO. For me videogames are a great hunger supressor.

  • Good and interesting video (i am a Filipino and i can’t really stand up to the food that move and, fried or grilled insect ) but in fairness Palawan of the Phil. also serve grilled crocodile but i don’t have a desire to eat that kind.///thanks

  • Gladiators were not the best fighters of the ancient world they were slave soldiers. Roman Soldiers probably ate a more plant based diet cause it was easier to preserve and cheaper to gather for soldiers on campaign.

  • They were called “Barley men” because barley was the main grain in their diet. Romans considered barley to be inferior to wheat because it was heavier, with reports of soldiers being punished by switching their wheat diet for a barley diet. Best way to compare gladiators are modern racehorses: well looked after, but disposable.

  • Great video, but you have a factual error which needs to be corrected or edited out. Unfortunately, Angus Barbieri did not live to be 98 as you state:(

  • This is legit, I ate 1 meal per day, and do 1 hour of interval running on 3 days per week. I feel no difference in my performance, if anything I don’t have stomach ache from running right after eating.

  • Some Greek citizens engaged in special diets for various purposes. Olympic athletes were instructed to eat meat-heavy diets and to restrict dessert and wine consumption before the Olympic Games. (Milo of Croton was said to have eaten 20 pounds of both meat and bread each day.)

  • 10 years ago I started to only have a boal of oat with fruits as a breakfast, a banana as a snack and a bowl of e.i. rice chicken veggs. Only that while working out 5 days a week, hardcore swimming one day and a day off. My body got to an unbelievable estetique, power and endurance. Unfortunately I’m yet not motivated enough to do it again but I highly recommend reducing food consumption ������

  • Gladiators were not the best fighters of the ancient world they were slave soldiers. Roman Soldiers probably ate a more plant based diet cause it was easier to preserve and cheaper to gather for soldiers on campaign.

  • SOME athletes, not ALL! Athletes who train at high intensities for extended periods of time will need to consume more calories then once/day, not to mention the function of glycolosis during these zones. You can not get away from using energy from glycolosis at high anaerobic zones where O2 is not prevalent throughout our tissues, ketones can prolong glycogen stores, but it CAN not be used in these energy systems for fuel. So, with everything, balance is KEY! One meal/day is not a balance and would be impossible to maintain for an endurance athlete at any level of competition. If a cyclist in the tour de france ate one meal/day, they would be catabolic (body would break down protein from muscles and convert it into carbohydrates for the needed energy source in glycolosis) for the majority of the first race. Then the calories burned in this first race would not be replenished during stages of recovery and the athlete would struggle over the next consecutive days of racing. My bet, is they would not finish the tour due to several reasons, and if they did it, would be a lot harder on the human physiological systems then needed to be. Nutrition is better looked at as calories expended: consumed ratio and the consumed should be focused on a balance of nutrient dense foods. The nutritional needs are different between each person; lifestyle, genetics, etc. Nutrition is too broad and has to be looked at differently for each person. Look at the diet of a sumo wrestler (so much can be learned from their diet alone).

    Interesting video, but this nutritional lifestyle can not be conformed to every human and in most cases is unpractical to daily living/activities. The tour de france cyclist mentioned above could use this one meal/day lifestyle during a section of his/her offseason training (few months tops) to help the body become more efficient at using fats for energy (zone 1-2, low end of 3), just not all the time or a constant nutritional lifestyle, as it would not be compliant with performance or balance.

  • Important thing to know is that unless you eat to lose weight, this won’t save you any money. The one meal you do eat is huge and has to account for all your calories in a day.

  • Anyone experiencing sensitivity towards people during the fasting time, such as sensing somehow bad/imbalanced energies and not feeling comfortable or therefore not wanting to be around people and what to do about it / how to screen from this/them?

  • Herschel Walker… He eats 1 meal a day. OMAD. Has been since like 16 yrs old. Fasting stimulates autophagy which repairs your body, keeps you young, and retains/recycles nutrients. Look it up, Siim Land, Eric Berg, Dr. Amun Ra. People like them have knowledge of autophagy and Omad. It’s amazing! I believe that the leaner and more physically active someone is, the more carbohydrates they may need. OMAD lower carb diet is good for weight loss, but less calories in 1 meal equals weight loss, and vice versa. Sumo wrestlers intermittent fast ( 2 meals a day) and are super healthy. High quality foods in high amounts, fasting for at least 16hours a day, and exercise in the morning. Beasts.

  • Two months without taking a shit? No way am I going to give up taking a shit. I would gladly chose taking a shit over sex any day.

  • You only named 2 athletes and a retired General. Rousey was only on the OMAD diet when she needed to weight cut before a fight. She doesn’t do it now that she’s in the WWE. Kohei Uchimura weighs 115 lbs LOL (only 11 lbs more than female Olympic champ Simone Biles). He’s only able to do what he does by being that small. McChrystal says he often snacks during the day. One can clearly cut weight with OMAD, but it is simply not a sustainable lifestyle for the overwhelming majority of people, let alone top professional athletes.

  • “Medical science is only in its infancy, yet it has shown that our natural diet is that which grows out of the ground. The people will gradually develop up to the condition of this natural food.” ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, Bahai Faith

  • Can understand Ronda Rousey where the gymnast, because they have a high person energy Sports. But what about your Endurance Sports like cycling for long distance running?

  • Good job on cherry-picking, misrepresenting and/or misinterpreting the studies you cited. This is a really irresponsible and deceptive video. Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence, and you fail to provide that, but you certainly don’t fail to convince yourself and try to convince others that OMAD is the next big thing and you’ll be in great health if you do it. Or worse, that by mot doing OMAD, you’ll not be in optimal health. People, please don’t fall for the bullshit. If you want to do fasting, intermittent fasting, or OMAD, that’s perfectly fine, but don’t be like this guy.

    “intermittent fasting has crucial effects on physical and intellectual performance by affecting various aspects of bodily physiology and biochemistry that could be important for athletic success.”

    Did you even read through the references that were cited by the researchers at all? It’s pretty studies of the positive effects EXERCISE and DIET have on health. Oh boy, what a revolutionary discovery! And then another big portion of the references has to do with Ramadan fasting and it’s effects on health markers and athletic performance. To sum the results up: 1. health markers showed no statistical significance. 2. In a number of studies, there were results indicating that Ramadan fasting negatively impacted athletic performance, especially in the afternoon hours during peak fasting hours, and it was suggested multiple times by multiple different researchers in different studies, that in order to mitigate the possible negative effects of Ramadan fasting on athletic performance, that training be scheduled closer to when the athletes ate and drank. Hmm….? Doesn’t sound “overwhelmingly positive” or “crucial. More so it’s crucial because it could negatively impact performance.

    Besides the point, Ramadan fasting is not OMAD, so you just cited a study that lends no support to your claims, and actually invalidates what you’re saying to a degree since there are results of negative athletic performance. And just a thought, why aren’t there more accomplished Islamic and Middle-Eastern athletes if fasting, whether it be IF, OMAD, or Ramadan fasting, is so much better according to you?

    Ronda Rousey and Kohei Uchimura are the only two athletes you’ve cited in this video, yet you have such a bold and clickbait video title. Again, you’re being disingenuous and misinforming people.

    Let’s think about this: Ronda Rousey is in the batamweight division. She’s approximately a 135 lb woman, 5 foot 7.
    Kohei Uchimura is approximately 5 foot 4, 121 lbs. I think it’s plausible that they can perform on OMAD SIMPLY because they are smaller individuals with less caloric and macronutrient requirements than a male basketball or football player, or a male middleweight fighter. On top of that, if we follow your logic of doing this OMAD thing because they do it, then does that mean we should drink coffee on an empty stomach like they do as well even though it’s apparently very harmful to your stomach according to a quick Google search? https://www.google.com/search?q=coffee+on+an+empty+stomach&oq=coffee&aqs=chrome.0.69i59j69i57j69i60l2j69i59j0.3031j0j7&client=ms-android-verizon&sourceid=chrome-mobile&ie=UTF-8

    So just because they do something doesn’t mean they know what they’re doing and that we should follow suit. And also, you might want to revise your recommendation to drink coffee while fasting.

    Okay, so the 382 pound man didn’t starve to death from fasting. Cool. He’s not an athlete. His improved health is obviously from losing all the damn excessive weight.

    The military general you mentioned is not an athlete. Also, if anyone bothers to read through the full article about the general, you’ll see that he mentions snacking during certain times when he feels really hungry or just before an intense task. So the dude can’t even stick to the OMAD regimen and he’s not even an athlete. Funny, because Kohei Uchimura also had the same issue where be sometimes would have a PROTEIN SHAKE. So neither of these people can consistently stick to OMAD it seems.

    “Fasters can eat as much as they desire.” Once again, misrepresenting information and taking it out of context. That article/study you show doesn’t even mention or study OMAD or IF. The Daniel fast, Ramadan fadting, and the Greek fast is what is studied. The Daniel fast and the Greek fast aren’t even anything like IF or OMAD. There is NO timing window where you eat or are not eating. You simply exclude foods, like dairy, meat, eggs. The Daniel fast excludes refined flours and processed foods, too, and is like a vegan diet, whereas the Greek fast is vegetatian. So these people on these facts can eat whenever they want and however much they want, just not of the excluded foods. That’s like normal eating, not OMAD you jackass. And also, the researchers stated that the Ramadan fasting didn’t seem to produce positive effects because Ramadan fasters can eat whatever they want, even unhealthy shit. In other words, fasting may not matter if you eat like shit. And they stated that one can make positive effects in one’s health not necessarily through fasting or caloric restriction, but just healthier food choices.

    So… where’s this overwhelming evidence for OMAD? You never really answered the question.

    Higher levels of HGH don’t prove your point.

    Gluconeogenesis doesn’t prove your point.

    Your video is misleading and full of lies.

  • I definitely want to try this but i would lose weight and i can’t afford to lose weight… I already very little fat. I need approx. 2500 kcal/day to maintain…. that would be really difficult to do with OMAD, in a clean way.

  • I’ve been on 18/6 IF for an entire year,everyone tough it was crazy but i gave it ago.I feel great,i dont feel hunger most of the time and i am able to lose fat and build muscles in the same time,no problems so far,i am just hesitant to drink cofee or tea because ive heard it brakes your fast,i cant get a clear answer on that..

  • 2 months without taking a shit when he didnt eat for over 1 year??????? What did he shit for ten months if he didnt eat? Doesnt sound right

  • Long distance runners are not modern gladiators if they can be called athletes at all. Look at CrossFitters e. g. and you might find better examples: muscular, versatile, agile, tough and omnivores for the most part.

  • Muslims do dry fasting for whole month of holy Ramadan.. they wake up around 3 am, eat and then fast till evening.. no water no food and no negative thoughts… result is unbelievably magical. Cell regenerates, skin changes, all vitals become balanced and weight loss is plus.
    I have currently started OMAD and so far it’s going great. I eat only in.even8ng and right before that I lift weight and do cardio… I drink lemon water only through day and start off my day with vinegar/lemon hot tea (one spoon of both in one cup.of hot water)… it’s making me healthy and more active. My digestive system is working properly and I feel more alert.

  • Amen ra is greatest man alive no doubt. I am forever thankful for his herbal (tea, rooibos, hibiskus, ginseng, rhubarb and turmeric) and dietary opening meal (brewers yeast, soy, spirulina, psyllium fiber and stevia + a dozen isolated amino acids. I only had glutamine, bcaa and kreatine in the veginning (lol veginning) Believe in those results you will get. Also yoga wit integrated weights inbetween muscle sets rejuvenates alot! And the turmeric is to be taken before strenght training. Really do WHAT HE SAYS!!!! Eat beans and rice and DIFFERENT root vegs. Later grains. Nuts seeds dried fruit berries and omfg Peanut butter ROYAL JELLY sandwitch its amazing ♡

  • In my country our culture encourages biphasic sleep. In fact my company highly recommends us employees taking a nap during lunch break. I’ve tried not having naps during the whole daytime and my brain just felt numb after about 3 p.m.

  • I’ve been doing one meal a day for 6 weeks and I’m feeling amazing. Never will I go back to eating 3 meals a day. New life style #OMAD ♥️

  • Sorry but but the articles shown are not accurate.first Gladiators were slaves and not athletes they ate Barley and beans because they were forced by their circumstances.never the less they didn’t live very long so it’s difficult to assess the benefits of such regime
    Roman soldiers ate salted fish and meat barley and bread.The Spartan soldiers ate a staple food called Black soup which was made with pigs blood and pigs fat along with some vegetables.so no they weren’t vegans or vegetarians.

  • They don t do this everyday. This diet is bad long term, the bloat and digestive issues you get from a meal that large will fuck you up

  • Well..this is very angled as usual! MOST gladiators ate a high animal protein diet. Just look it up. They have done similar studies on lots of other gladiator groups and they absolutely weren’t vegetarian. Even THESE guys weren’t vegetarians! They ate a predominantly vegetarian diet, but that’s not equal to a vegetarian diet! And…regarding the other studies; they compared vegetarians to “flesh eaters”. Remember that vegetarians are not vegans. Vegetarians eat eggs and dairy for the most part. Many “vegetarians” eat fish too and still call themselves vegetarians. It’s unclear what kind of vegetarians there were in these studies. So they probably ate eggs and dairy and perhaps seafood too. And so to those long distance runners that you call vegetarian. They weren’t vegetarian! They ate predominantly a vegetarian diet. Again; that’s not A vegetarian diet! That’s a PREDOMINANTLY vegetarian diet. Still not vegetarian. And the Roman diet wasn’t even predominantly vegetarian. They ate TONS of seafood. This is very well recorded by archeologists. My gosh….get your nutrition “facts” straight atleast…��

  • Sorry but but the articles shown are not accurate.first Gladiators were slaves and not athletes they ate Barley and beans because they were forced by their circumstances.never the less they didn’t live very long so it’s difficult to assess the benefits of such regime

  • This is really good advice. Don’t listen to people who tell you to eat allot to function, eating too much will cause you to function poorly in life unless you are a six foot tall indurance athlete. Food has destroyed many people,
    Philippians 3:19
    Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.)

  • Important thing to know is that unless you eat to lose weight, this won’t save you any money. The one meal you do eat is huge and has to account for all your calories in a day.

  • Those gladiators were slaves that’s why they ate grains and plant’s, the strongest people ate meat and animal fats raw milk, grains are for the slaves.

  • Anyone experiencing sensitivity towards people during the fasting time, such as sensing somehow bad/imbalanced energies and not feeling comfortable or therefore not wanting to be around people and what to do about it / how to screen from this/them?

  • Great video!
    1) Why do babies eat (milk) all the time? (just came to my mind:)
    2) I’m a girl, I don’t want to loose too much fat. So I managed to be able to eat during a short time window, but struggling with this (Im pretty active, doing all my shopping by bike etc.) And then I feel like I need to eat a lot during the time window, which seems to be an overload for my stomach. Any idea?

  • I tried the vegan diet for 3 months and started feeling weak towards the end. I do weight lifting, basketball, boxing, running so all kinds of different training and for me personally a balanced diet with animal protein and fats works best for me. I’m in the best shape of my life both mentally and physically and I eat animal products at least 3 times a day. I recommend you to stop listening to these yt videos and “science based” studies. Studies are very easy to manipulate and so are humans, think for yourself!

  • Sorry, hopefully this will work. https://youtu.be/12I8GzS28h4
    Also, it was in the Book of Daniel in the Bible, who tested in 10 days for appearances and ability.

  • I been eating one meal a day,u will lose weight without even working out or u can split those calories into 3 meals,just eating less u will lose weight

  • To me, giving up meat wouldn’t be that tough! I think chicken and turkey tastes bland and boring. Most beef is too tough. Bacon is my favorite and also of course: The absolute worst thing for your body! Besides bacon and an expensive melt-in-your-mouth prime cut of beef I could care less about meat. Certainly not worth the price for taste and lack of health benefits… Let’s be honest though no matter how used to legumes, vegetables, fruits and whole grains you may be: Nothing will ever taste as good as a pizza and that’s a fact! Moderation is key =p

  • ive been eating OMAD for two days now but eating my meal in the morning, and i do notice i have more focus toward the mid-morning-evening. i sleep less. I eat whatever i want during that hour… 8am. and i feel as though i have more time for things. im doing it cause im getting fat, i dont really go anywhere because i work from home, so i dont get any physical activity, so my body just doesnt need all the food i used to give it.

  • Thank you for an informative video. However, the delivery seems a bit faux-stilted filled with “o-or”, “a-and” and weird growls. Please try modifying your recitation of the script to make the audio easier to follow.

  • AN ABSOLUTELY ANNOYING FLOW of SPEECH!!!!

    What is YOUR objective? Trying to be Different or Unique?
    DANG!!!!

    It FAILED!!!!!!…………Cheers!

  • And the Mongols, who subsisted primarily on animal products( even drinking their horses blood) stomped all over their grain fed enemies…next

  • Horray for glucagon! The hormone responsible for why OMAD works. The initial resistance to OMAD is due to ghrelin. Similar to withdraw symptoms. If sugar or protein consumed during fasting window will stop the glucagon secretion. Keep insulin low, glucagon high. Then ghrelin and leptin will follow. Simple biological feedback system.

  • I’ve read that the gladiators ate a lot of barley and beans because it made them fat. The extra layer of fat protected their internal organs and muscles from bladed weapons and acted as sort of an additional “armor” and helped them fight longer. Makes sense, I’m pretty sure that the gladiators weren’t really concerned about having six pack abs when they were fighting for their lives.

  • You work well with what you are adapted to. That’s all. We adapt to our diets. I only eat meat. I’m very fit. I used to eat lots of veg and small meat, I was very fit then too. We adapt to use what we have available. That is why we survived.

  • I need to start sorting comments by new on all these vegan youtuber vids. Not only to find the real people dumping on all of their claims, but also to avoid the sight of HH’s roid tits.

  • Could you please elaborate on why you are recommending to drink coffee outside the eating window? And what alternatives are there (no black tea)? Some sticking to this method recommend not to have anything (even if it’s a drink) that will give you energy, which would include green teas (such as matcha, mate), that would work as alternatives.

  • McChrystal shutdown all the fast food places on base in Bagram, Afghanistan. He said his troops were too fat..lol. But, of course once he left command, they opened them back up.

  • Once the system we live with now (macro powers where a few control the many) dies either through the environment being completely consumed, or we spiritually wake up, we will go back to simple living. This will be Heaven on Earth, Hospitals and Doctors will no longer be needed. And we will all feel Love. Jesus, Ghandi, and many other inspirational people fasted to bring them closer to Love.

  • When I was growing up my mom and step dad were having financial issues, so I used to eat a green soup every day, for lunch and dinner. My mom is very smart, she put peas, spinach, pumpkin and cilantro. I also had rice cakes and sugar cane juice for breakfast. I loved those the food those times, though my mom is embarrassed to remember them. Still, I was the strongest kid in my class and went up and down the mountain for going to school. I rarely got sick.

  • Sorry, hopefully this will work. https://youtu.be/12I8GzS28h4
    Also, it was in the Book of Daniel in the Bible, who tested in 10 days for appearances and ability.

  • Gladiators were mostly slaves and people from low classes, who died between the ages of 18-25 they didn’t have much to say considering their diet.
    They were fed just like the cattle who are about to get slaughtered.
    Vegan lies and pure propaganda…

  • gladiators weren’t a perfect fighting machine. they were people from slave class or criminal who fought for their freedom in front of kings and people. they ate vegan because the meat was expensive than veggies.

  • Plant foods = Outstanding for cardio health, kinda mediocre for strength training. Animal foods = Not so great for cardio health, good for strength training.

    …Maybe cardio and plant foods should be the majority of what we eat/do with fitness…

  • Hmm I’m pretty sure strongmen eat lots of food, lots of times during the day. This may be good for getting lean, but I just don’t see a strength based workout without having eaten in the past few hours.

  • 0:58 Legionaries daily ration consists of 78% carbohydrate, mainly from barley or wheat…

    What other 22% consisted of?

    Defiantly not enough to support conclusion “Best fighters in the ancient world were essentially vegetarian”.

    Please note that in ancient Rome average life expectancy was around 25 years! You can eat whatever you like and live that age…
    This is pour constructed and highly misleading clip.

  • Interesting but hard to implement. I can’t really zone out at work, after work there is night classes or gym. When I do have space to take a prolonged lunch at home (I live close to work) that could mean eating in 10 mins which leaves theoretically a 50 min rest. But that’s not everyday, and this is why companies place coffee machines on every floor, so you can be an efficient robot even during 2-3 pm.

  • This is definitely doable. I know I can and will do it. I’m already fasting until 2 or 3pm. What I do is take 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar (Bragg) in a 6 oz bottle of water and when I get to work I put 2 teaspoons of MCT oil in my coffee. After that I’m not hungry at all. I use to eat McDonalds every morning. I had to eat something every morning. I could never skip breakfast. Well now I not only skip breakfast but I skip lunch pretty much. So after I eat a meal at 3 or so I also eat a salad or this microwave veggie kit with broccoli and cauliflower and carrots in it. I dont eat the carrots. I’m getting there. Lol. So that’s my eating habits now. But I may start incorporating the veggies or salad at the same time as the meal which is usually salmon with an advacodo. Oh also coffee throughout the day with MCT oil and a little cream. That’s it. So I have been doing this for about a month and I am slowly losing fat cause coworkers are telling me but I havent weighed myself and I haven’t started cardio yet. The weight will fly off once I start cardio.

  • quite funny when you say u eat lamb but you don’t eat lamb head. out here in South Africa its our thing (Breakfast, lunch, snack and dinner lol)

  • No doubt Corona originated in China. Every one of these things can be eaten elsewhere. I ate squid and scorpion first in the US. Snake first in Japan. To say it only exists in China is just xenophobic propaganda.

  • These people are giving world most painful things to animals…. They burning and boiling animals alive.. As well as cut animals body piece by piece while animals alive…they Not kill them quickly…. It is so so scary and bad…. ������

  • So two athletes a female fighter and gymnast is all you have as evidence this one diet a day works? That cant even pass as statistically competent leave alone the science of sports.

  • And the Mongols, who subsisted primarily on animal products( even drinking their horses blood) stomped all over their grain fed enemies…next

  • You mean slaves have always been fed grains? I bet it was easy to get men to fight to their death just for a chance to eat some meat and get some nutrients for once

  • I tried the vegan diet for 3 months and started feeling weak towards the end. I do weight lifting, basketball, boxing, running so all kinds of different training and for me personally a balanced diet with animal protein and fats works best for me. I’m in the best shape of my life both mentally and physically and I eat animal products at least 3 times a day. I recommend you to stop listening to these yt videos and “science based” studies. Studies are very easy to manipulate and so are humans, think for yourself!

  • you’re in a BIG bubble…
    You’re all soon to be featured in a ” Ex-vegan turned Carnivore…Veganism destroyed my health” vid of yourselves

  • The only reason fasting works is because you are fasting from carbs. Carbohydrates are detrimental to the body and these type of high carbs didnt exist before the agricultural revolution, they are man made. If you went on a carnivore diet your body would run on ketones and be always be in a fasted state.

  • I think sleeping on left side is not a good idea whatsoever. It creates pressure on the heart… I can confirm from personal experience. I am right-handed and I find it extremely uncomfortable

  • hi, can you do a video on gastroporesis caused by a viral or bacterial infection? I had an infection over the summer and I have been consuming a whole foods plant based diet for years now, and still do. I know the gut may take time to heal but any more info on this would be so helpful. I’m seeing a gastroenterologist but more info would be great! im doing my own research but it’s hard to know what is and isn’t valid

  • Ok this point is not that important but Angus Barbieri lived upto 50 or 51. Just cause he didn’t live upto 90 does not mean the one meal a day diet is bad, as he actually lived approx 25 years after it.

  • These gladiators were slaves thus they ate a slave based diet consisting of a plant based diets. I wonder what the kings ate? I don’t think it was plant based

  • Gladiators were mostly slaves and people from low classes, who died between the ages of 18-25 they didn’t have much to say considering their diet.
    They were fed just like the cattle who are about to get slaughtered.
    Vegan lies and pure propaganda…

  • They were analyzing the bones of the gladiators that died, showing they were “essentially vegetarians”, the gladiators that killed them ate meat. 😉

  • These gladiators were slaves thus they ate a slave based diet consisting of a plant based diets. I wonder what the kings ate? I don’t think it was plant based

  • Those gladiators were slaves that’s why they ate grains and plant’s, the strongest people ate meat and animal fats raw milk, grains are for the slaves.

  • Lies and misinformation, typical thing from Dr. Greger. Although he is not saying certain things directly, he is obviously leading people to a certain conlusion… which is the same thing as lying.

    There was no animal agriculture back then, limited possibilities for food storage, also time (how fast food spoils) and mobility (troops) were important. For anyone who has a properly working brain (vegans excluded) it is obvious that it was harder and even unnecessary to feed soldiers animal products on regular basis. Cheap food, easy and long term storage, food that can be easily moved… all that things mattered back then. And there were limits when it comes to food availabity back then. So some dietery choices were there out of neccesity and limited resources.

    Comparing vegan/vegetarian athletes against non vegan/non vegetarian is pointless. Healthy user bias. Non vegan/non vegetarian athletes might be simply eating more crappy foods, processed foods, more sugar, drink more, smoke more etc. There are also few other important things that may affect the results.

  • These people are giving world most painful things to animals…. They burning and boiling animals alive.. As well as cut animals body piece by piece while animals alive…they Not kill them quickly…. It is so so scary and bad…. ������

  • I’ve eaten 2 meals a day over the last week and since then I feel better. I might try 1 meal a day but I need to educate myself on what nourishment my body needs to function well and healthily.

  • This is really good advice. Don’t listen to people who tell you to eat allot to function, eating too much will cause you to function poorly in life unless you are a six foot tall indurance athlete. Food has destroyed many people,

    Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.)

  • Diseases which brought up by your “ancestors and Columbus” which killed thousands of innocent native Americans, sure was not Chinese.

  • Conflicted on this. I spent a year cleaning out my diet sodas to candy etc. I drink goat, cow milk water and coffee only through out the week. I eat eggs, chicken breasts, 1 red lean meat and 1 salmon/perch dinner (baked) a week. Also a medley of vegs ranging from broccoli to Brussels sprouts etc. I eat white, brown and quinoa weekly also. I never felt better, I also eat whole oats. I do not eat swine, hamburger I haven’t ate processed foods in over a year.

  • Hmm I’m pretty sure strongmen eat lots of food, lots of times during the day. This may be good for getting lean, but I just don’t see a strength based workout without having eaten in the past few hours.

  • We for shure eat waaaay to mutch red meat. Some is good but it is prob one of the main cause for heart problems. Red meat for me also works best in moderation a stake once a week but thats it. Rest of the time egs and a bit fish maybe some chicken. But hell ye vegan diet must be nr for heart health.

  • Good job on cherry-picking, misrepresenting and/or misinterpreting the studies you cited. This is a really irresponsible and deceptive video. Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence, and you fail to provide that, but you certainly don’t fail to convince yourself and try to convince others that OMAD is the next big thing and you’ll be in great health if you do it. Or worse, that by mot doing OMAD, you’ll not be in optimal health. People, please don’t fall for the bullshit. If you want to do fasting, intermittent fasting, or OMAD, that’s perfectly fine, but don’t be like this guy.

    “intermittent fasting has crucial effects on physical and intellectual performance by affecting various aspects of bodily physiology and biochemistry that could be important for athletic success.”

    Did you even read through the references that were cited by the researchers at all? It’s pretty studies of the positive effects EXERCISE and DIET have on health. Oh boy, what a revolutionary discovery! And then another big portion of the references has to do with Ramadan fasting and it’s effects on health markers and athletic performance. To sum the results up: 1. health markers showed no statistical significance. 2. In a number of studies, there were results indicating that Ramadan fasting negatively impacted athletic performance, especially in the afternoon hours during peak fasting hours, and it was suggested multiple times by multiple different researchers in different studies, that in order to mitigate the possible negative effects of Ramadan fasting on athletic performance, that training be scheduled closer to when the athletes ate and drank. Hmm….? Doesn’t sound “overwhelmingly positive” or “crucial. More so it’s crucial because it could negatively impact performance.

    Besides the point, Ramadan fasting is not OMAD, so you just cited a study that lends no support to your claims, and actually invalidates what you’re saying to a degree since there are results of negative athletic performance. And just a thought, why aren’t there more accomplished Islamic and Middle-Eastern athletes if fasting, whether it be IF, OMAD, or Ramadan fasting, is so much better according to you?

    Ronda Rousey and Kohei Uchimura are the only two athletes you’ve cited in this video, yet you have such a bold and clickbait video title. Again, you’re being disingenuous and misinforming people.

    Let’s think about this: Ronda Rousey is in the batamweight division. She’s approximately a 135 lb woman, 5 foot 7.
    Kohei Uchimura is approximately 5 foot 4, 121 lbs. I think it’s plausible that they can perform on OMAD SIMPLY because they are smaller individuals with less caloric and macronutrient requirements than a male basketball or football player, or a male middleweight fighter. On top of that, if we follow your logic of doing this OMAD thing because they do it, then does that mean we should drink coffee on an empty stomach like they do as well even though it’s apparently very harmful to your stomach according to a quick Google search? https://www.google.com/search?q=coffee+on+an+empty+stomach&oq=coffee&aqs=chrome.0.69i59j69i57j69i60l2j69i59j0.3031j0j7&client=ms-android-verizon&sourceid=chrome-mobile&ie=UTF-8

    So just because they do something doesn’t mean they know what they’re doing and that we should follow suit. And also, you might want to revise your recommendation to drink coffee while fasting.

    Okay, so the 382 pound man didn’t starve to death from fasting. Cool. He’s not an athlete. His improved health is obviously from losing all the damn excessive weight.

    The military general you mentioned is not an athlete. Also, if anyone bothers to read through the full article about the general, you’ll see that he mentions snacking during certain times when he feels really hungry or just before an intense task. So the dude can’t even stick to the OMAD regimen and he’s not even an athlete. Funny, because Kohei Uchimura also had the same issue where be sometimes would have a PROTEIN SHAKE. So neither of these people can consistently stick to OMAD it seems.

    “Fasters can eat as much as they desire.” Once again, misrepresenting information and taking it out of context. That article/study you show doesn’t even mention or study OMAD or IF. The Daniel fast, Ramadan fadting, and the Greek fast is what is studied. The Daniel fast and the Greek fast aren’t even anything like IF or OMAD. There is NO timing window where you eat or are not eating. You simply exclude foods, like dairy, meat, eggs. The Daniel fast excludes refined flours and processed foods, too, and is like a vegan diet, whereas the Greek fast is vegetatian. So these people on these facts can eat whenever they want and however much they want, just not of the excluded foods. That’s like normal eating, not OMAD you jackass. And also, the researchers stated that the Ramadan fasting didn’t seem to produce positive effects because Ramadan fasters can eat whatever they want, even unhealthy shit. In other words, fasting may not matter if you eat like shit. And they stated that one can make positive effects in one’s health not necessarily through fasting or caloric restriction, but just healthier food choices.

    So… where’s this overwhelming evidence for OMAD? You never really answered the question.

    Higher levels of HGH don’t prove your point.

    Gluconeogenesis doesn’t prove your point.

    Your video is misleading and full of lies.

  • I’d like to know how they were eating potatoes over one and a half thousand years before the discovery of the Americas. Complete bs.

  • Ok this point is not that important but Angus Barbieri lived upto 50 or 51. Just cause he didn’t live upto 90 does not mean the one meal a day diet is bad, as he actually lived approx 25 years after it.

  • Herschel Walker… He eats 1 meal a day. OMAD. Has been since like 16 yrs old. Fasting stimulates autophagy which repairs your body, keeps you young, and retains/recycles nutrients. Look it up, Siim Land, Eric Berg, Dr. Amun Ra. People like them have knowledge of autophagy and Omad. It’s amazing! I believe that the leaner and more physically active someone is, the more carbohydrates they may need. OMAD lower carb diet is good for weight loss, but less calories in 1 meal equals weight loss, and vice versa. Sumo wrestlers intermittent fast ( 2 meals a day) and are super healthy. High quality foods in high amounts, fasting for at least 16hours a day, and exercise in the morning. Beasts.

  • Well gladiators where slave destined to die young in a clown circus for the entertainment of sadist enslaver and aristocrats, the plant based diet was part of the torture i imagine lol

  • Your voice is so annoyingly smug that it was really a struggle to listen to you drone on, which was a shame because the content was quite interesting.

  • The only reason fasting works is because you are fasting from carbs. Carbohydrates are detrimental to the body and these type of high carbs didnt exist before the agricultural revolution, they are man made. If you went on a carnivore diet your body would run on ketones and be always be in a fasted state.

  • You dont need to give up carbs. I usually eat meats with fries an a big bowl of porridge with honey and im just fine. Abs, energy, poop twice a day and my sleep is great. If i go keto, i feel like shit, say bye bye to the toilet and dont fall asleep.

  • Not exactly true. According to Roman records, While gladiators did mainly eat Barley and Beans, they still ate meat. Same with legionaries.

  • Horray for glucagon! The hormone responsible for why OMAD works. The initial resistance to OMAD is due to ghrelin. Similar to withdraw symptoms. If sugar or protein consumed during fasting window will stop the glucagon secretion. Keep insulin low, glucagon high. Then ghrelin and leptin will follow. Simple biological feedback system.

  • Once the system we live with now (macro powers where a few control the many) dies either through the environment being completely consumed, or we spiritually wake up, we will go back to simple living. This will be Heaven on Earth, Hospitals and Doctors will no longer be needed. And we will all feel Love. Jesus, Ghandi, and many other inspirational people fasted to bring them closer to Love.

  • 10 years ago I started to only have a boal of oat with fruits as a breakfast, a banana as a snack and a bowl of e.i. rice chicken veggs. Only that while working out 5 days a week, hardcore swimming one day and a day off. My body got to an unbelievable estetique, power and endurance. Unfortunately I’m yet not motivated enough to do it again but I highly recommend reducing food consumption ������

  • I did it for 6 months and was always watching the clock hungry and couldn’t wait to eat daily. Basically my whole day almost revolved around what I was going to eat that day

  • Can understand Ronda Rousey where the gymnast, because they have a high person energy Sports. But what about your Endurance Sports like cycling for long distance running?

  • McChrystal shutdown all the fast food places on base in Bagram, Afghanistan. He said his troops were too fat..lol. But, of course once he left command, they opened them back up.

  • Viruses wouldnt survive being heated so its a blatant lie that eating these foods spreads any disease. Its more likely that disease is spread from toxic water, ground, and uncooked toxic vegetables.
    So many ignorant fucktard humans have zero clue how life actually works.

  • gladiators weren’t a perfect fighting machine. they were people from slave class or criminal who fought for their freedom in front of kings and people. they ate vegan because the meat was expensive than veggies.

  • Great video, but you have a factual error which needs to be corrected or edited out. Unfortunately, Angus Barbieri did not live to be 98 as you state:(

  • Hey @Primed I unfortunately haven’t found a way to contact you, but I wanted to share a very good source for polyphasic sleep, that also takes its scientific approach very serious. There‘s a website called polyphasic.net and it provides knowledge about various schedules, a huge ton of information about biological rhythms, and how sleep actually works. I hope this message reaches you, as I really don’t want that misinformation is spread, I think you understand that.

    Constructive criticism:
    You have a few mistakes that regard when to exactly sleep during a 24hr period, for example the most ideal time to get deep sleep. You also said that you should sleep 30m as a power nap, but that would eventually cause you to fall into deep sleep at the end of your nap, which will result in a deep sleep wake, those are highly unpleasant to wake from, I speak from experience.
    All this information is on the aforementioned website, I highly recommend checking it out and read through it to start a healthy polyphasic sleep schedule! Good luck!

  • Gladiators were slaves, you give them roots and beans, not the best delicacies Rome had to offer. This is so misleading and the comments section is filled with mostly fakes and larpers.

  • I must say MMORPG videogames have had me on an omad diet without realizing it for YEARS, LMAO. For me videogames are a great hunger supressor.

  • I’ve read that the gladiators ate a lot of barley and beans because it made them fat. The extra layer of fat protected their internal organs and muscles from bladed weapons and acted as sort of an additional “armor” and helped them fight longer. Makes sense, I’m pretty sure that the gladiators weren’t really concerned about having six pack abs when they were fighting for their lives.

  • The brain using ketone is Not gluconeogenesis. You may want to know what you are talking about before uploading and attempting to pass on false info to the masses.

  • They were analyzing the bones of the gladiators that died, showing they were “essentially vegetarians”, the gladiators that killed them ate meat. 😉

  • They don t do this everyday. This diet is bad long term, the bloat and digestive issues you get from a meal that large will fuck you up

  • Well gladiators where slave destined to die young in a clown circus for the entertainment of sadist enslaver and aristocrats, the plant based diet was part of the torture i imagine lol

  • 2 months without taking a shit when he didnt eat for over 1 year??????? What did he shit for ten months if he didnt eat? Doesnt sound right

  • Muslims do dry fasting for whole month of holy Ramadan.. they wake up around 3 am, eat and then fast till evening.. no water no food and no negative thoughts… result is unbelievably magical. Cell regenerates, skin changes, all vitals become balanced and weight loss is plus.
    I have currently started OMAD and so far it’s going great. I eat only in.even8ng and right before that I lift weight and do cardio… I drink lemon water only through day and start off my day with vinegar/lemon hot tea (one spoon of both in one cup.of hot water)… it’s making me healthy and more active. My digestive system is working properly and I feel more alert.

  • 0:58 Legionaries daily ration consists of 78% carbohydrate, mainly from barley or wheat…

  • I dont believe any of this bullshit anymore. I eat what i feel like when i want. If i die tomorrow, at least my stomach will go out with a smile. I dont care anymore. I just want to enjoy myself. Whats the point of eating sand if you feel like killing yourself?

  • Well..this is very angled as usual! MOST gladiators ate a high animal protein diet. Just look it up. They have done similar studies on lots of other gladiator groups and they absolutely weren’t vegetarian. Even THESE guys weren’t vegetarians! They ate a predominantly vegetarian diet, but that’s not equal to a vegetarian diet! And…regarding the other studies; they compared vegetarians to “flesh eaters”. Remember that vegetarians are not vegans. Vegetarians eat eggs and dairy for the most part. Many “vegetarians” eat fish too and still call themselves vegetarians. It’s unclear what kind of vegetarians there were in these studies. So they probably ate eggs and dairy and perhaps seafood too. And so to those long distance runners that you call vegetarian. They weren’t vegetarian! They ate predominantly a vegetarian diet. Again; that’s not A vegetarian diet! That’s a PREDOMINANTLY vegetarian diet. Still not vegetarian. And the Roman diet wasn’t even predominantly vegetarian. They ate TONS of seafood. This is very well recorded by archeologists. My gosh….get your nutrition “facts” straight atleast…��

  • And which “night” time would you recommend when you get up at 4am? When to start the eating window best and what’s the optimal duration? Thank you

  • Standard American Diet is killing people. Big Pharma loves obese and diabetic people. 1 meal a day is ideal. Intermittent fasting is even better.

  • Great video!
    1) Why do babies eat (milk) all the time? (just came to my mind:)
    2) I’m a girl, I don’t want to loose too much fat. So I managed to be able to eat during a short time window, but struggling with this (Im pretty active, doing all my shopping by bike etc.) And then I feel like I need to eat a lot during the time window, which seems to be an overload for my stomach. Any idea?

  • To me, giving up meat wouldn’t be that tough! I think chicken and turkey tastes bland and boring. Most beef is too tough. Bacon is my favorite and also of course: The absolute worst thing for your body! Besides bacon and an expensive melt-in-your-mouth prime cut of beef I could care less about meat. Certainly not worth the price for taste and lack of health benefits… Let’s be honest though no matter how used to legumes, vegetables, fruits and whole grains you may be: Nothing will ever taste as good as a pizza and that’s a fact! Moderation is key =p

  • Could you please elaborate on why you are recommending to drink coffee outside the eating window? And what alternatives are there (no black tea)? Some sticking to this method recommend not to have anything (even if it’s a drink) that will give you energy, which would include green teas (such as matcha, mate), that would work as alternatives.

  • Your voice is so annoyingly smug that it was really a struggle to listen to you drone on, which was a shame because the content was quite interesting.

  • What you should mention is that the average life expectancy of the Tarahumara Indians is only 45 years and Roman gladiators were there for entertainment. A lot of them slaves. Regardless of whatever diet they held, their purpose was to fight in death matches. So to die for entertainment. And maybe the mass graves of the vegetarian equivalents that ate barley and beans, which could only lead to deficiencies, should say a lot more than the fact that they were men who died prematurely in violent deaths.

  • Thank you for such a great video Primed!

    3.) How to maintain it?

    Thank you!

  • You work well with what you are adapted to. That’s all. We adapt to our diets. I only eat meat. I’m very fit. I used to eat lots of veg and small meat, I was very fit then too. We adapt to use what we have available. That is why we survived.

  • I am now 55 and have been sleeping like this since I was 22, ” broken sleep ” as many say…from my ” day job” was 6am-2pm… and my night gig as an entertainer….( since 1985)..I would sleep from 11pm-4am..then after working, I would take may 2 hr. nap from 3:30pm-5:30pm…gig done at 12mid 3x a week….it worked for me! I get my sleep and feel GREAT! Also as my late Great-Nana who lived to be 99 always said ” sleep is #1!! ) as well as George Burns said he slept this was most of his later years ( He lived to be 100 and was always sharp!

  • This completely skips over the sleep Architecture. If you don’t get deep sleep, recovery is seriously hampered and no amount of cycles will compensate for that.

  • Complete lies. Slaves don’t get to choose their food. Gladiators consumed the diet they ate because they had no choice. Totally stupid. Also, everyone in the ancient Roman world including slaves ate garum. High in calcium, protein and omega3 fatty acids. Please learn some history before posting these things.

  • SOME athletes, not ALL! Athletes who train at high intensities for extended periods of time will need to consume more calories then once/day, not to mention the function of glycolosis during these zones. You can not get away from using energy from glycolosis at high anaerobic zones where O2 is not prevalent throughout our tissues, ketones can prolong glycogen stores, but it CAN not be used in these energy systems for fuel. So, with everything, balance is KEY! One meal/day is not a balance and would be impossible to maintain for an endurance athlete at any level of competition. If a cyclist in the tour de france ate one meal/day, they would be catabolic (body would break down protein from muscles and convert it into carbohydrates for the needed energy source in glycolosis) for the majority of the first race. Then the calories burned in this first race would not be replenished during stages of recovery and the athlete would struggle over the next consecutive days of racing. My bet, is they would not finish the tour due to several reasons, and if they did it, would be a lot harder on the human physiological systems then needed to be. Nutrition is better looked at as calories expended: consumed ratio and the consumed should be focused on a balance of nutrient dense foods. The nutritional needs are different between each person; lifestyle, genetics, etc. Nutrition is too broad and has to be looked at differently for each person. Look at the diet of a sumo wrestler (so much can be learned from their diet alone).

    Interesting video, but this nutritional lifestyle can not be conformed to every human and in most cases is unpractical to daily living/activities. The tour de france cyclist mentioned above could use this one meal/day lifestyle during a section of his/her offseason training (few months tops) to help the body become more efficient at using fats for energy (zone 1-2, low end of 3), just not all the time or a constant nutritional lifestyle, as it would not be compliant with performance or balance.

  • ive been eating OMAD for two days now but eating my meal in the morning, and i do notice i have more focus toward the mid-morning-evening. i sleep less. I eat whatever i want during that hour… 8am. and i feel as though i have more time for things. im doing it cause im getting fat, i dont really go anywhere because i work from home, so i dont get any physical activity, so my body just doesnt need all the food i used to give it.

  • Conflicted on this. I spent a year cleaning out my diet sodas to candy etc. I drink goat, cow milk water and coffee only through out the week. I eat eggs, chicken breasts, 1 red lean meat and 1 salmon/perch dinner (baked) a week. Also a medley of vegs ranging from broccoli to Brussels sprouts etc. I eat white, brown and quinoa weekly also. I never felt better, I also eat whole oats. I do not eat swine, hamburger I haven’t ate processed foods in over a year.

  • We for shure eat waaaay to mutch red meat. Some is good but it is prob one of the main cause for heart problems. Red meat for me also works best in moderation a stake once a week but thats it.

  • They were called “Barley men” because barley was the main grain in their diet. Romans considered barley to be inferior to wheat because it was heavier, with reports of soldiers being punished by switching their wheat diet for a barley diet. Best way to compare gladiators are modern racehorses: well looked after, but disposable.

  • I swam backstroke competitively for many years along with freestyle, and the best part about backstroke is breathing easier and hearing the crowd cheering,and being able to see the competitors alongside. But I take no offense…

  • Long distance runners are not modern gladiators if they can be called athletes at all. Look at CrossFitters e. g. and you might find better examples: muscular, versatile, agile, tough and omnivores for the most part.

  • Amen ra is greatest man alive no doubt. I am forever thankful for his herbal (tea, rooibos, hibiskus, ginseng, rhubarb and turmeric) and dietary opening meal (brewers yeast, soy, spirulina, psyllium fiber and stevia + a dozen isolated amino acids. I only had glutamine, bcaa and kreatine in the veginning (lol veginning) Believe in those results you will get. Also yoga wit integrated weights inbetween muscle sets rejuvenates alot! And the turmeric is to be taken before strenght training. Really do WHAT HE SAYS!!!! Eat beans and rice and DIFFERENT root vegs. Later grains. Nuts seeds dried fruit berries and omfg Peanut butter ROYAL JELLY sandwitch its amazing ♡

  • Some Greek citizens engaged in special diets for various purposes. Olympic athletes were instructed to eat meat-heavy diets and to restrict dessert and wine consumption before the Olympic Games. (Milo of Croton was said to have eaten 20 pounds of both meat and bread each day.)

  • Two months without taking a shit? No way am I going to give up taking a shit. I would gladly chose taking a shit over sex any day.

  • Alot of weight lifters bulk with high carb because of the boost in energy and help with recovery so it makes sense but you can’t compare a difference between real gladiators and professional athletes nowadays. With the progress of nutrition and sports science we can effectively base or training and nutrition on our SPECIFIC goals. A gladiator may have trained twice as hard as your modern lifter but he had everything to lose literally. So they were probably much more lean with endurance but there’s no way they could achieve the muscle mass we can now and cut without losing muscle without enough protein and goal orientated macros. Plus with our knowledge we have present we know more of how to stimulate the muscles and how to execute different movements with proper form. I just think unless you have a real legitimate modern day warrior that trains to fight to the death and eats let’s say a high protein diet and another that is on a vegetarian diet, or just a high carb diet then we really can’t be ��% sure. Interesting view though.

  • You only named 2 athletes and a retired General. Rousey was only on the OMAD diet when she needed to weight cut before a fight. She doesn’t do it now that she’s in the WWE. Kohei Uchimura weighs 115 lbs LOL (only 11 lbs more than female Olympic champ Simone Biles). He’s only able to do what he does by being that small. McChrystal says he often snacks during the day. One can clearly cut weight with OMAD, but it is simply not a sustainable lifestyle for the overwhelming majority of people, let alone top professional athletes.

  • Good and interesting video (i am a Filipino and i can’t really stand up to the food that move and, fried or grilled insect ) but in fairness Palawan of the Phil. also serve grilled crocodile but i don’t have a desire to eat that kind.///thanks

  • I agree with almost everything presented in this video except the claim regarding the weekly distance run by vegetarians vs omnivores as a function of health. There is ample evidence that running at distances greater than 32 km (20 mi) per week leads to cardiac fibrosis and left ventricular hypertrophy.

  • Complete lies. Slaves don’t get to choose their food. Gladiators consumed the diet they ate because they had no choice. Totally stupid. Also, everyone in the ancient Roman world including slaves ate garum. High in calcium, protein and omega3 fatty acids. Please learn some history before posting these things.

  • I’d like to know how they were eating potatoes over one and a half thousand years before the discovery of the Americas. Complete bs.

  • Not exactly true. According to Roman records, While gladiators did mainly eat Barley and Beans, they still ate meat. Same with legionaries.

  • This is legit, I ate 1 meal per day, and do 1 hour of interval running on 3 days per week. I feel no difference in my performance, if anything I don’t have stomach ache from running right after eating.

  • I did it for 6 months and was always watching the clock hungry and couldn’t wait to eat daily. Basically my whole day almost revolved around what I was going to eat that day

  • I dont believe any of this bullshit anymore. I eat what i feel like when i want. If i die tomorrow, at least my stomach will go out with a smile. I dont care anymore. I just want to enjoy myself. Whats the point of eating sand if you feel like killing yourself?

  • This is definitely doable. I know I can and will do it. I’m already fasting until 2 or 3pm. What I do is take 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar (Bragg) in a 6 oz bottle of water and when I get to work I put 2 teaspoons of MCT oil in my coffee. After that I’m not hungry at all. I use to eat McDonalds every morning. I had to eat something every morning. I could never skip breakfast. Well now I not only skip breakfast but I skip lunch pretty much. So after I eat a meal at 3 or so I also eat a salad or this microwave veggie kit with broccoli and cauliflower and carrots in it. I dont eat the carrots. I’m getting there. Lol. So that’s my eating habits now. But I may start incorporating the veggies or salad at the same time as the meal which is usually salmon with an advacodo. Oh also coffee throughout the day with MCT oil and a little cream. That’s it. So I have been doing this for about a month and I am slowly losing fat cause coworkers are telling me but I havent weighed myself and I haven’t started cardio yet. The weight will fly off once I start cardio.

  • You mean slaves have always been fed grains? I bet it was easy to get men to fight to their death just for a chance to eat some meat and get some nutrients for once

  • You Are Wrong.. You Need To Do You’re Research Better.. First Who Talked About This Topic Is Prophet Of Allah Mohammed.. He Talked About It 1441 Years Ago And How You should Or Better Be Cutting You’re Sleep To 2 Cases

  • When I was growing up my mom and step dad were having financial issues, so I used to eat a green soup every day, for lunch and dinner. My mom is very smart, she put peas, spinach, pumpkin and cilantro. I also had rice cakes and sugar cane juice for breakfast. I loved those the food those times, though my mom is embarrassed to remember them. Still, I was the strongest kid in my class and went up and down the mountain for going to school. I rarely got sick.

  • I’ve been on 18/6 IF for an entire year,everyone tough it was crazy but i gave it ago.I feel great,i dont feel hunger most of the time and i am able to lose fat and build muscles in the same time,no problems so far,i am just hesitant to drink cofee or tea because ive heard it brakes your fast,i cant get a clear answer on that..

  • What you should mention is that the average life expectancy of the Tarahumara Indians is only 45 years and Roman gladiators were there for entertainment. A lot of them slaves. Regardless of whatever diet they held, their purpose was to fight in death matches. So to die for entertainment. And maybe the mass graves of the vegetarian equivalents that ate barley and beans, which could only lead to deficiencies, should say a lot more than the fact that they were men who died prematurely in violent deaths.

  • hi, can you do a video on gastroporesis caused by a viral or bacterial infection? I had an infection over the summer and I have been consuming a whole foods plant based diet for years now, and still do. I know the gut may take time to heal but any more info on this would be so helpful. I’m seeing a gastroenterologist but more info would be great! im doing my own research but it’s hard to know what is and isn’t valid

  • So two athletes a female fighter and gymnast is all you have as evidence this one diet a day works? That cant even pass as statistically competent leave alone the science of sports.

  • Plant foods = Outstanding for cardio health, kinda mediocre for strength training. Animal foods = Not so great for cardio health, good for strength training.

    …Maybe cardio and plant foods should be the majority of what we eat/do with fitness…

  • I need to start sorting comments by new on all these vegan youtuber vids. Not only to find the real people dumping on all of their claims, but also to avoid the sight of HH’s roid tits.

  • I’ve been doing one meal a day for 6 weeks and I’m feeling amazing. Never will I go back to eating 3 meals a day. New life style #OMAD ♥️

  • The brain using ketone is Not gluconeogenesis. You may want to know what you are talking about before uploading and attempting to pass on false info to the masses.

  • Lies and misinformation, typical thing from Dr. Greger. Although he is not saying certain things directly, he is obviously leading people to a certain conlusion… which is the same thing as lying.

    There was no animal agriculture back then, limited possibilities for food storage, also time (how fast food spoils) and mobility (troops) were important. For anyone who has a properly working brain (vegans excluded) it is obvious that it was harder and even unnecessary to feed soldiers animal products on regular basis. Cheap food, easy and long term storage, food that can be easily moved… all that things mattered back then. And there were limits when it comes to food availabity back then. So some dietery choices were there out of neccesity and limited resources.

    Comparing vegan/vegetarian athletes against non vegan/non vegetarian is pointless. Healthy user bias. Non vegan/non vegetarian athletes might be simply eating more crappy foods, processed foods, more sugar, drink more, smoke more etc. There are also few other important things that may affect the results.
