No sugar. No corn (maize). No potatoes. Nothing sweet except honey. No preservatives for anything.
And whatever you spend on food, contribute twice the amount to tsadakkah to reflect how food prices are so low today compared to 2000 years ago.
Also remember no refrigeration. Never buy more than can you eat immediately since it will spoil quickly.
And don’t forget exercise. No using cars, buses or trains. Don’t use any electric labor saving devices. Only the very rich could afford a horse drawn carriage or a liter carried (usually by slaves). Remember, never use the elevator or escalator.
Follow these rules, you will no longer be fat and out of shape – and will appreciate the advantages of great wealth that Ha-Shem has given us today.April 20, 2023 4:59 pm at 4:59 pm #2182622GadolhadorahParticipant
You neglected to mention tofu and pea protein (aka Beyond Beef), two of the essential elements of the Gadol Diet.April 20, 2023 4:59 pm at 4:59 pm #2182619AviraDeArahParticipant
Akuperma, they used to preserve meat in salt, or in the snowApril 20, 2023 9:19 pm at 9:19 pm #2182640
Most chazal did not have snow to keep their meat most of the time.
Proof: meat is mentioned 2600 times in the Gemora, snow – only 94.April 20, 2023 9:22 pm at 9:22 pm #2182644☕️coffee addictParticipant
Also Chazal didn’t have corn because it’s a new world food
They didn’t have potatoes eitherApril 20, 2023 9:22 pm at 9:22 pm #2182645☕️coffee addictParticipant
And btw there were tannaim that were really fatApril 20, 2023 11:45 pm at 11:45 pm #2182676LostsparkParticipant
Bring back garum!April 21, 2023 12:35 am at 12:35 am #2182683DontMindMeParticipant
Also remember, there were no antibiotics back then. So if you get a serious infection, well… you’ll really lose a lot of weight.April 21, 2023 7:51 am at 7:51 am #2182712AviraDeArahParticipant
Aaq…. Why does the amount of times a word is used matter? They had snow, and they knew what it could do. But snow was not very common in that part of the worldApril 21, 2023 9:32 am at 9:32 am #2182734akupermaParticipant
They had ice, but it was an extreme luxury to keep it through the summer (BTW, it was probably warmer during the time of Bayis Sheini than today). They could salt meat, however that had to be done before cooking and not as a way to deal with leftovers. They had peas but not soy (unless they visited China – it didn’t reach Europe or the Middle East until the time of the ahronim). And of course they lacked all the new world foods (no chocolate, no maize, no tomatoes, no potatoes, no quinoa).
Garum’s use as a condiment is restricted since it is a fish sauce.April 21, 2023 1:22 pm at 1:22 pm #2182751@fakenewsParticipant
Please report back after you follow this diet for a couple years.April 21, 2023 1:25 pm at 1:25 pm #2182755Get-r-dunParticipant
I almost eat like chazal, i just changed the lamed at the end with a ‘raish’April 21, 2023 1:29 pm at 1:29 pm #2182763
Wait, you need to read ha sefer ‘the body electric’, mamash it says that because we are surrunded by an excessive, unnatural electricity nowadays, if it’s the case then our metabolism cannot process sugar and carbs properly. That book is a jem!April 22, 2023 10:15 pm at 10:15 pm #2182838
> Why does the amount of times a word is used matter?
I just came up with a ridiculous argument, so you know how we feel sometimes.April 23, 2023 7:42 pm at 7:42 pm #2183190
In the tanach, when a word is repeated, it was for a reason, same in tehilimApril 23, 2023 8:16 pm at 8:16 pm #2183211
I do eat like chazal. Chazal were observing effects of different foods on health and ate accordingly. I am trying to do the same.May 2, 2023 12:03 pm at 12:03 pm #2186252
