...proper diet....specifically i would like to find out exactly what O Sensei ate, how often, and when. i know that fish vegetables and rice were prominent, but i would like to know very specific guidelines or routines that O Sensei practiced with his diet (eg. how much digestion time should elapse before training, what and when did he eat after training, in the morning, etc. etc, you get my drift thank you for any information.
Gleason's The Spiritual Foundations of Aikido touches on this, but doesn't go into great detail. He seems to imply a connection with Macrobiotics. A poster here, Fred Little, recently had several books for sale on e-Bay on just this topic, I believe, by George Osawa.

Good luck.
