"If the initial findings are confirmed it would change the glamorous image of the men immortalised in movies like Spartacus, starring a young Kirk Douglas, and the more recent Gladiator with Crowe in the main role." Awesome. I could be a gladiator. Just need some more peanut butter and hemp.

makes perfect sense; theres no point in having loads of meat to clog up ur colon or living on the atkins diet; getting ripped but with zero energy.

The gladiators diet would give them plenty of strength and bulk, loads of energy and made them much more resilient.
