Gladiators Were Vegan

Gladiators Were Vegan

This short video excerpt is from Dr. John McDougall's presentation "The Starch Solution." Dr. McDougall describes the results of an archaeological excavation in Turkey, where they discovered a grave site containing the bodies of 60 Gladiators.

Examination of the mineral content of the bones, they concluded that the Gladiators ate a vegetarian diet, which included grains like barley. In fact, their diet was so rich in whole plant foods, they called them vegans. Dr. McDougall explains further that the greatest conquests in the world were accomplished primarily by men who ate a starch-based diet. Even Roman soldiers withheld meat from their diets prior to battle, because they knew it made a difference in whether or not they would win.
