The Danger Diet
Diet, nutrition and supplements are a cornerstone of any training regimen. Powerlifters benefit from a diet that includes pretty much everything and supplements typically seen at a Mexican horse racing stable. The GPP crowd seems to fluctuate between something called a “zone” and arguing about what monkeys ate in the time before Mark Wahlberg crashed his space ship into the statue of liberty. My personal favorite is the German prostitute diet, which consists almost entirely of fecal matter and semen supplemented with MDMA and Rammstein. While all these diets vary significantly, they do have a common theme; each diet is purposeful. The powerlifter needs calories to fuel maximal strength, the GPP guy needs a subsistence diet to look ripped with his shirt off and Germans are fucking crazy. This brings us to the Danger Diet; what should you eat in order to thrive in a danger environment?
What do we know about danger? It’s unpredictable. Danger training is as much about survival as anything else. With Danger training, our motto is “That which does not kill me might kill the other guy in which case I win”. Therefore, the ultimate goal of the Danger Diet is to be able to survive off any food source, become as resistant as possible to all known poisons and recreational drugs and to make our bodies as strong and damage resistant as possible.
Poison & Drugs:
Not every hazardous substance we put into our bodies is food. To be truly prepared you should build up resistance to all known poisons and drugs. Hollywood has given us countless examples of how drug/poison resistance can be used to your advantage. The most classic example is of course from the movie “Princess Bride” where the masked guy feeds wine laced with poison to himself and a midget. Remember, when building up a resistance to something, start small and work your way up to higher doses.
Being super strong is a definite advantage when it comes to dangerous situations and playing by the rules is for suckers. If a substance has been banned by a sporting body of any kind because it has been proven to enhance performance then you should definitely take it if you want your performance enhanced. The short list here would of course be steroids (anabolic, not cortico), HGH, EPO, amphetamines, myostatin blockers, cybernetic enhancements, PCP and gene doping. I do urge you to use caution however as some banned supplements don’t actually improve performance much and therefore are a waste of time and money.
