Diet in its Relation to Strength – Strength Magazine – January, 1920

Few subjects have been more discussed than the subject of proper diet in training for strength. Careful investigations indicate that the diet should vary, according to climate, race and occupation. Dr. Siebert, one of the most famous continental trainers, who at one time trained Hackenschmidt and Lurich, and who wrote in “Umschau” on the subject, is inclined to go still further and to assert, as a conclusion drawn from fifteen years of close observation of strong men and wrestlers, that every man needs his own peculiar diet and is in reality a law unto himself.
