    Bread and butter

    I had read an article that muscled men who fight like gladiators in the olden Europe eat only bread and butter for their sustenance. I wonder what kind of strength they have with that kind of diet. I had been posting in other threads that meat is vital to muscles.

    This combination is rich in.fats and carbs but lack vitamins and minerals. I think they still ate a lot of fruits and drank milk to supplement a balanced diet.

    Re: Bread and butter

    I also read that gladiators in the olden days eat a lot of bread and butter. It's because during those days bread is being made of whole grain and this gives muscled fighters protein, fiber, B vitamins and minerals like iron, zinc, copper and magnesium. Whole grain bread are also rich in antioxidants. Whole grain bread promotes heart health and defends our body from cancer and other diseases such as obesity and diabetes.

    On the other hand, butter in the olden days are effective muscle builders, it contains calcium and vitamin D, selenium, and it contains healthy saturated fats and linoleic acid which both has potent anti tumor and anti cancer properties. You also have to realize that butter in those times are more natural and healthier unlike the store bought butter we are consuming now.

    Re: Bread and butter

    Don't know where you guys come up with this.
    Gladiators didn't eat lots of Bread and Butter.

    Gladiators were known as "Hordearii"---Literally Barley Men.

    Their Diet was mainly Barley/Beans/and Vegetables.
    And for Strong Bones they Drank a Brew of Charred Wood or Bone Ash, both of which are High in Calcium.

    Here, read this Article from Archaeology Archive.
    It gets into the Specifics about how they Identified the different Isotopes in their Bones.
    Which lead to the Determination of what they were eating.... JP
