Re: Which physical culturists were vegetarian?

Re: Which physical culturists were vegetarian?

Well that makes sense as most of the nutrients in a food go into the water when they are boiled.I remember growing up hearing that if you boil vegetables you may as well drink the water if you want the goodness.Also don't forget the old Jewish remedy for anything that ails you,the good old chicken ...
