Colosseum – the greatest roman amphitheatre, the place for gladiator fights and one of the most popular tourist attractions in Rome, Italy
Gladiators’ Diet

Gladiators ate a lot and were probably overweight. This theory is confirmed by some research on the remains of 70 Murmillos and Retiariae gladiators at an ancient site in Ephesus. 

The gladiators probably ate a high energy vegetarian diet. They consumed dried fruit, beans and barley. This way, having some layers of fat they could protect their vital organs, when they were injured.
