I’ve just read “The Way to Live in Health and Physical Fitness” by George Hackenschmidt. I bought it because I was particularly interested in his diet, he had an incredible physique for his era and was very lean for 99kg at 5’9". However, the chapter on nutrition in the book is just a small paragraph saying that the best foods are raw foods and to eat one quarter meat and three quarters vegetables/fruit/nuts. While this seems straightforward, would anybody be able to give more of an insight? Other than by eating a lot of red meat and nuts I struggle to see how he would have achieved the necessary calories to reach 99kg at his height and body fat level.
