Nutritionists are finally catching on to what our predecessors knew instinctively. It is the "starchy" carbohydrates such as rice, potatoes, bread and pasta that make you fat! One area where many of the old timers look as good, if not better, than today's bodybuilders is in abdominal development. No ephedrine. No clenbuterol. No diuretics. They ate meat and drank whole milk by the gallon yet they were sharp as razors (with great skin tone I might add). Getting in shape for a contest didn't take months. These guys were always in shape. Just a few days of eating clean and they were ready to step on stage. Back in the days when athletes such as boxers needed to lose some fat in order to make their weight class, the only advice they were given was "lay off the starches." That's because it worked!
