Diets of Bruce Lee, JCVD, Chuck Norris, The Rock and More



When you look at guys like Bruce Lee and Arnold Schwarzenegger, you’ve got to assume they follow the strict Rocky diet of raw eggs and pure vengeance.


However, some of these muscle men are just like us—they eat carbs, avoid red meat, lift weights, and drink the tears of their enemies.


If you’re looking to go from zero to hero, check out the diets of some of the most badass dudes in history and maybe someday you’ll be lucky enough to punch out Sylvester Stallone.


Bruce Lee

This guy was not only one of the best fighters of all time, but he was actually a big meat eater—particularly favoring beef and liver. Sticking to his Chinese roots, Bruce avoided a lot of western food, citing it contained too many empty calories.

The legendary fighter would avoid refined flour and only stick to rice-derived carbohydrates along with consuming protein and whey powder, while avoiding dairy. So, just remember, when you eat dairy, you’re eating the enemy of Bruce Lee.
