I don't think that EvA was a big believer in beer, but a runner often linked to him, Manfred Steffny, seemed to be quite fond of it.
I have two copies of the van Aaken method, published by RW circa 1977 or so. The 1,000 calories a day was only a suggestion for weight loss. Eva supposedly said that no runner should eat in excess of 3,000 calories a day. He also emphasized that limiting calories was more important than the makeup of the calories eaten.
What did Joan Ullyot say that EvA usually ate, HRE?
