Bodybuilders and Strongmen of the Past consuming Gelatin Protein, Saturated Fats, and Healthy Sugars: Alan Stephan


Alan Stephan Protein Drink:

1 Glass Evaporated Milk
1 tbsp Cod Liver Oil
1 tsp Vanilla
1 Glass of Water
1 tsp Gelatin

“…What happens when you take both of these, is the cod liver oil and evaporated milk form a chemical reaction in the body where the protein becomes more apt to be absorbed. And the gelatin, which is pure protein combined with the milk gives you a much better chance for the muscles to grow.” Alan Stephan, “Your Physique” (December 1948)

“As far as your food is concerned, you have to get at least 15 to 18 ounces of meat a day, preferably beef, a quart-and-a-half of milk, and an eggnog sometime during the day with two eggs in it. Just take a quart bottle 1/2 filled with milk and put in the eggs, add a little honey or flavoring and shake.” Alan Stephan, “An Alan Stephan Bulk Course

“Don’t forget to drink lots of milk and eat plenty of good food such as fresh vegetables and meat, eggs [whole], cheese, and butter. Fruits and salads are also good.” Alan Stephan, “Bulking is Easy” (Your Physique, 1950)
