Bruce Lee – a bright representative of martial arts. He was also a shining example for others to follow in the movie. His figure differed with muscles and lack of excess fat accumulations.
This he achieved by following proper nutrition system that he established on his own. Basic knowledge he learned not only from Chinese cuisine, but also used the properties of the products used in bodybuilding.
Bruce Lee was sure that flour products bring to the body useless calories. And once a year, Bruce indulged in treats at some social event or at a party, out of respect for the owners. Will-power of the fighter is hard to break!
In his diet Bruce Lee used the milk only in a dry form (as a component of protein cocktail).
As a resident of China, the actor paid special attention to Chinese food containing large amounts of protein. Western cuisinehad also deserved his attention, but because of the excess fat in it has been used less frequently.
By the way, contrary to popular myth, Bruce Lee was not a vegetarian and loved the steaks.
Compliance with this rule allows the body to get used to a small amount of food and prevents fat storage. Master of Kung Fu ate 5 times a day, in between eating fruit.
In addition, 1 or 2 times a day the fighter drank protein drinks. Usually, they comprised eggs (even with shell), milk, bananas, peanut oil, brewer’s yeast, inositol, wheat germ, lecithin and fresh cream as desired.
Cocktails from fresh fruit and vegetables that contain carbohydrates gave Bruce cheerfulness and boosted his energy level. An integral component of most cocktails that Bruce used to drink were carrots.
