Bruce Lee's Diet and Health Plan
Who was Bruce Lee?
I cannot imagine who in the world would not know who Bruce Lee was? Bruce Lee was born on November 27th, 1940 and would die a freak death on July 20, 1973. He was the most famous martial artist ever and although many have tried to fullfill his shoes, none could ever do that. He was an actor, a martial arts instructor, film director, film producer and the founder of the Jeet Kune Do martial arts movement.
Lee was famous for his love of nutrition. He had found that in order to have a peak body in top form he must give up all types of junk foods. He maintained a highly nutritious diet void of dairy. He did later on use powdered milk in some of his smoothies which he created himself. Here are some of the things he did follow.
1. Less and more often: He ate 4 or 5 meals a day and each meal was with small portions. He would snack on healthy food throughout the day, like fruit.
2. Avoid empty calories: He avoided pastries, breads and sweets. He preferred to have pasta, spaghetti and rice as his carbohydrates.
3. His favorite meals: He consumed fruit and green vegetables every day. He loved to eat eat Chinese or other Asian food. Some of Bruce Lee's favorite foods were Chinese beef in oyster sauce, tofu and steak and liver.
4. He was big into supplements: Vitamin C, Lecithin granules, bee pollen, Shilajit, Vitamin E, rose hips (liquid form), wheat germ oil, Acerola – C and B-Folia, and brewer's yeast.
5. He loved tea: He did drink tea daily with honey (Lipton) or a Chinese tea called Li-Cha. This is a black tea and made with milk and sugar. He felt tea drinkers had strong immune systems.
6. Ate a balanced diet: Your diet must me a combination of carbohydrates, proteins and fats. He felt the best sources of protein were milk, cheese, eggs, soybeans and nuts. Healthy fats are important to the body as well. Certain fatty acids are essential to life and can be found in peanut butter, egg yoke, avocados, Brazil nuts, mackeral, cheese and many more.
7. He drank royal honey and ginseng daily. He would drink this right before a high energy action scene. As Bruce said "I take a little Royal Jelly beforehand and Voom! My energy levels are perfect" He did drink green drinks, protein drinks and his own personal mixtures.
Sadly to say the world lost him from a freak accident on July 20th 1973. He had a headache and asked for some pain medicine. The medicine was called Equagesic which caused cerebal edema (excess accumulation of water inthe cellular spaces of the brain). He never woke up from his rest and was declared dead at 11pm that evening. A huge shock to the world. His son Brandon would be killed in another freak accident 20 years later. The family curse continues.
Bruce Lee's death only proves that when it is your time to go, you go. His diet is one that may be helpful to you. It has some very positive layers, but the liver is something I just could not stomach. He loved the variety of Chinese food as most do.
