In this video I examine Bruce Lee’s diet to see what kept him so shredded and gave him the energy to train and work as hard as he did. The results were kind of interesting.
On the face of it, Bruce’s diet doesn’t seem that exciting. He ate a nutrient dense diet and avoided empty calories such as those found in baked goods. He supplemented with vitamins and minerals and ate smaller meals, more frequently.
What’s more interesting though, is that Bruce Lee also consumed a protein shake mix filled with a variety of interesting additional ingredients. These ingredients included brewer’s yeast, inositol, lecithin, egg shell and more.
I dug into this and did some research and it turns out this is actually a pretty awesome stack for increasing energy, motivation, brain function, fat metabolism and more. Of course I don’t recommend all of it – note that eating egg shell can risk transmission of bacteria unless thoroughly washed and doesn’t offer that much nutritional benefit other than calcium.
