Re: Peter Yates

Sad to hear this news. I only joined this forum last year but had some private chats with Peter he was a kind and open minded man. He also seemed to know a lot about nutrition and from that photograph posted above looked in good health I am very shocked that he died, he replied to a thread I started...

Re: Which physical culturists were vegetarian?

Hi Peter, I think I have exhausted my research on this topic for now. I cannot find anymore vegan or vegetarian physical culturists. I have exchanged emails with some historians and they have thanked me for some of the names even they did not know. However I did find a pescatarian with an interest i...

I am going to add Amos Alonzo Stagg to this list. He was an American football coach but he took an interest in physical culture and from reports he was a vegetarian. He lived to be 102.

Re: Which physical culturists were vegetarian?

I was reading through the hopc library about earle lidermann and in his mail order course he tells the trainee to adopt a vegetarian diet with plenty of milk. Did he also follow that advice? Hi Tom, Do you have the birth and death dates for Earl E. Liederman? I would be interested in seeing how lon...

Re: Lionel Strongfort

The article surprisingly omits the fact Lionel Strongfort was a strict vegetarian. You can read about it in Adam D. Shprintzen's book The Vegetarian Crusade: The Rise of an American Reform Movement, 1817-1921 . Strongfort's diet was covered in the Physical Culture magazine. I do find these facts imp...

Re: Which physical culturists were vegetarian?

Someone recently told me Jim Morris was the first vegan bodybuilder but I don't think that is true, there are probably a few that pre-date him. He died age 80.

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 ...

Re: Which physical culturists were vegetarian?

Whilst looking up Rocky Marciano I came across Archie Moore. Archie Moore is reported to have had some strange dieting ideas. He claimed his success in boxing was from a secret diet he learned from Australian Aboriginal people. Apparently he did not chew meat but he drank it, i.e. chicken broth. Som...

I have read various accounts and seen differing evidence of whats good and bad re eating eggs. When kids out in the wild countryside i lived, we did eat some of the larger wild bird...
