Jack Lalanne, now nearly 94 years old, knew what he was talking about back in the 50s, and 50 years later there's still a bunch of idiots telling you to eat all the wrong things. Take a look.

Of course, this is what it might look like if sculpted today. Later: Art DeVany on classic vs. modern bodybuilding.
