Hi, guys. My name is Mike Elgan, and I'm co-author The Spartan Diet. The diet itself is complete, and the book (called "The Spartan Diet," oddly enough), is more than half done.
We believe this diet is not only the "healthiest diet in history," but also the manliest diet in history. The diet was conceived originally as an answer to the question about why US Marines, who are often called "American Spartans," are so Spartan about everything except diet. It evolved into something much more encompassing. So why Spartan? Here's part of our explanation from the book:
When it comes to health and fitness, the ancient Spartans are uniquely qualified to teach us the lessons we need most of all. Unlike us, they figured out how to keep their bodies strong when everything in their environment promoted weakness. In the midst of great wealth, the Spartans rejected over-consumption. In an age of rising and unprecedented civilization, the Spartans never lost touch with their animal nature. In an environment of plenty, the Spartans stayed lean. When mighty Sparta’s power, influence and wealth eclipsed even the glory of Athens, every Spartan citizen lived simply, with frugality, self-discipline and awesome physical health.
How did they do it? How can we?
We've got some information on the site and the blog, but I'd love to answer any questions anyone has about it.
