to my knowledge there has never really been any significant or consistant analysis of what arnold actually ate day to day.

in the weider magazines he would bullshit on about protein drinks, etc, but then i've also heard (in reality) he didn't really eat much protein at all, that he had a fairly regular diet.

arnold would obviously bullshit alot. he was a business man at the end of the day and he has admitted to embellishment on many occasions.

so i was wondering if any of the older fans here actually had some insight into how this man ate?

was he a slave to protein? did he eat 6 times a day? low fat/ high fat/ carbs/protein, etc?

Guys..here is a portion of an Article from Muscle Builder which was printed in 1969 regarding Arnold's Diet...read it for what it's worth as the mags obviously had their agenda in promoting supplements...

"...But Arnold Schwarzenegger pegs his protein intake each day at 350 grams.

THE WONDER-WORKING SCHWARZENEGGER DIET

BREAKFAST: He arises about 7 a.m. in the morning.
Instant Nature Breakfast (one container)
Meat
Eggs
A German -Swiss cereal called Birchermuesli which is comprised of rolled oats, ground nuts of many kinds, dried raisins, dried apples, and seeds of many kinds (such as wheat germ). This delicious cold cereal (you add milk only) can be purchased in health food stores.
A Vitamin-Mineral Tablet.
One Protozyme Tablet to assist in protein and starch digestion.

AT 9:00 A.M.
BEFORE THE MORNING SECTOR OF HIS DOUBLE-SPLIT ROUTINE:
Insta Power (one container). Arnold usually sips half of this before his workout, and sips the remainder during the workout.

AT 11:00 A.M.
Instant Nature Breakfast (one container) or Super-Pro 101.

AT 2:00 P.M. (Germans and Austrians eat a late lunch)
A light protein such as tunafish or cottage cheese.
A small green vegetable salad with lemon juice and roll.
A piece of fresh raw fruit.

AFTER WORK (A HALF-HOUR BEFORE THE SECOND SECTOR OF THE DOUBLE-SPLIT) :
A container of Insta Power (sipped as before, before the workout, the remainder during the workout).

DINNER AT 7:00 P.M.
A full pound of beef. Arnold prefers Rostbraten which is a Viennese sirloin steak pan-broiled with a few tablespoons of peanut oil in order to gain needed unsaturated fatty acids to offset the animal fat quotient in the beef.
A baked potato with corn-oil margarine for topping.
A mixed salad of potatoes, red beets and cucumbers.
A typical Viennese dessert such as Kaiserschmarren or Schillerlocken (a pastry cone filled with whipped cream), or Nusstorte (you may substitute any kind of dry, nutty cake). When Arnold was trying to gain weight he not only ate dessert just mentioned, but sipped a container of Crash Weight-gaining Formula #7 as a 'chaser.' This was so effective that now, at his present weight of 250, he no longer need rely on Crash Weight daily, only when he finds his weight dropping below the 250 lbs. he likes to maintain throughout the year. He always takes a Protozyme Tablet after his big dinner.

AFTER HIS CALF WORKOUT JUST BEFORE RETIRING:
A container of Super-Pro 101 to provide protein insurance for the day. Thus his total protein consumption is 350+ grams per day.

Now Arnold alters this diet a few weeks before a contest or an exhibition. Then we find him 'fining down' . . . trying for the greatest 'cuts.' At this time he omits many of the high carbo-gram foods. . . boosts his protein intake with Super-Pro 101, and includes Muscle Density Formula RX7. This latter supplement is substituted for Insta-Power before (and during) each workout sector, and in place of Instant Nature Breakfast at the 11 :00 A.M. feeding. Because he then works in high sets and reps with lighter poundages, he does not require the super-energy boost necessary when working with the heaviest weights. Thus Muscle Density Formula R7 which is formulated to help produce muscular definition in combination with brisk workout routines, is just what he needs.

It is needless to add that when working for definition. Arnold omits desserts such as the creamy Kaiserschmarren, Schillerlocken or Nusstorte, and substitutes an apple or pear or peach peeled at the table and eaten raw. In this way he trims down a few pounds, and has 100% more cuts than anyone else on the posing platform! "

This article is total bullshit! Arnold ate 3 solid meals and 3 liquid meals. His liquid meals did not contain much protein powder but more raw eggs milk and even icecream. I have more info in Arnold's encyclopedia.

lol. didn't even see that one coming when i posted the question.

thanks to those that have responded thus far.

the reason for my interest is because arnold was at the top of the food chain (pun) at a time when steroids were being utilized with greater acceptance.

he is actually the perfect case study. excellent genetics for muscular development, began using steroids at an early age and was entirely focused on muscular development.

it would be interesting to learn just how much emphasis this athlete placed on nutrition and whether, considering aforementioned factors, it made much of a difference to his performance.

here is a recipe I found for Birchermuesli I found on the internet:

"3/4 c wheat germ 3 c quick cooking rolled oats 1 c dried organic currants or raisins 2/3 c finely chopped dried organic unsulphered apricots 3/4 c or less date, or brown, sugar Mix thoroughly; stores well up to a month. Variations: substitute wheat, rice, barley, rye, soy, or millet flakes for oats. Or, replace fruit with dehydrated dates, apples, peaches, or cherries."

For my money, keep the wheat germ and oats, ditch the rest.
