        To make a long story short, in training for games athletes would usually gorge on foods specific to their event, as far as of course the ancients could surmise such. We can assume a sort of "cutting" phase, insofar as maintaining such a diet off-season would be kind of ridiculous from their perspective.
        This is also lines up with military thinking of the day, in which those going off to war would also bulk up and, by necessity, cut. It is, after all, easier for soldiers to be carrying rations-of-sorts along their bellies, rather than having to exclusively rely on what can be foraged and brought along with baggage trains. Being a bit fat before a campaign was just good logistics.

            Yeah, ancients sport was pretty simple: the person who wins wins, doesn't matter if they had 50 pounds on the other dude. Other guy shoulda put on 50 more pounds if he didn't want to lose.

        ancient people were always lean
        athletes were also very toned

        lack of leanness was more common in northern barbarians due to cold

    Their diet consisted of real whole foods unlike today where everything is a mix of pesticides and processed crap roided up to produce more cost effectively.
    The athletes followed a strict program which trained both body and mind tailored to their sport in which they did the best at.
    Also, their entire life they had to be physical one way or another unlike now where you can basically live your entire life sedentary and still get by.

      Yup. You will probably look like that if you underwent Spartan training/lifestyle from Age 7 to 60.

      There was goyslop but the aristocratic warrior class(what everyone means when they say ancient greek) didn't eat it.

        The goyslop of the times was gruel, which by itself is completely normal and healthy compared to the industrial monstrosities you find in super markets

          Gruel makes for weak bones and tiny muscles

            Their gruel was filled with beans, cheese, and olive oil.

            And goyslop makes for heart disease, hormonal imbalance and obesity. Also, the masses in the countryside did eat olives as well as a lot of olive oil, peas, barley, vegetables, onions and garlic. The city poor had to make do with dried fruits and vegetables, and the rowers and mine slaves lived on bread. You either pick between a tasty but poisonous diet or a bland but slightly healthier one. Definitely not protein dense either way you look at it.

              Meds generally did not eat protein dense diets unless they were athletes or soldiers on campaign. It made for an awkward moment for a holy Roman ambassador when he was subjected to an actual Roman meal.
