Ancient Greece Eats Atkins-Style
One of the diets chosen by ancient Grecian athletes may be more recognisable to today’s supermodels and celebrities than Olympic athletes. Food historians have uncovered Greek and Roman remains, which suggest the first Olympians ate a meat-heavy diet similar to Atkins, to prepare themselves for competition.
This differs greatly to the Olympians of today, who eat a wide array of food depending on the sport and weight class they’re competing in. Nur Tatar, a female Turkish Taekwondo fighter competing in 2012’s games, reduced her calorie intake to just 1500 a day in order to reach the right weight for the category she’ll fight in. Her daily meals consist of a balance of fruit, vegetables, carbohydrates, protein and water. On the other hand, a male Olympic heavyweight rower might eat up to 6,000 calories every day throughout his training schedule – but note, this is only recommended for athletes in intensive training. Again, this diet includes elements from all the food groups to ensure strength and energy. It includes two breakfasts, plenty of carbohydrates and protein, as well as sports drinks and water.
History tells us that diet is important for health and sport – but different cultures have different opinions on what sort of meal makes a good athlete. Although, whatever sport you choose, and whatever you’re planning on eating, rest assured that wolfing down an entire bull will most probably give you indigestion.

The freshly caught fish does not smell bad, but their meat has proteins that break down quickly with enzymes and bacteria, causing odor.
The fish does not smell quite fresh fish, ie, does not have that smell that you associate with. Maybe a frecor aroma, the sea, not unpleasant. But after a couple of hours after they were fish, their flesh begins to rot and that's when it begins to smell "fishy."
Fish flesh has a protein (other than red meat), which decompose more quickly to suffer the action of enzymes and bacteria. Y is the odor of the decomposition of the amino acids that is characteristic for a considerable presence of ammonia and other amines, compounds that our nose is particularly sensitive.
But the smell does not mean the fish is necessarily bad, as they are perceived long before their meat consumption is undesirable. Just that the more fresh it smells less.
So the fishermen immediately cover the fish with ice and transported in cold storage to the point of sale where the ice is also used. This not only reduces the temperature to avoid decomposition, but prevents the fish dry.

This has created long lines at state distribution centers for food, where the chicken is sold in small quantities, in exchange for FS-delivered by the Government.
