The Bruce Lee Diet – Bruce Lee’s Diet and Nutrition

The original Bruce Lee Diet article, by

Bruce Lee is famous for his devotion to martial arts and his great abilities in this field. He was not only an exceptional martial artist, but also a serious bodybuilder. He firmly believed that diet and nutrition played a very important role in achieving his objectives. However, he was not an expert in nutrition, he gained most of his information from bodybuilding magazines and experimented with different supplements in addition to eating a well balanced healthy diet. For Bruce Lee a good diet was one that provided him with the energy and nutrients to maximize his physical training.

The following diet rules are based on what is known about Bruce Lee’s daily eating regime. There are many references to “The Bruce Lee Diet”, but really such a diet simply attempts to replicate Bruce Lee’s dietary and eating patterns, as well as his fitness regimes, to try to attain a physique similar to that of Bruce Lee. Bruce Lee’s diet and exercise regime meant that he had close to zero percent body fat. Following this diet regime could help you to lose belly fat as well as improve muscular growth.

Bruce Lee Diet Rule 1: Avoid Refined Flour

Generally Bruce Lee avoided refined flour. So, he did not eat many baked foods such as biscuits and cakes, which he described as being “empty calories“. It is worth mentioning that today many people attribute irritable bowel syndrome to the excess consumption of refined flours. His philosophy was not to consume calories that did not provide some benefit to the body.


This approach to eating is very similar to that of the Buddhist scriptures, which states:

“You must learn to be moderate in eating, and eat only enough to remain healthy, and fit for trance. For excessive food obstructs the flow of the breath as it goes in and out, induces lassitude (lack of vitality), sleepiness, and kills all valour. As too much food has unfortunate consequences, also starvation does not lead to efficiency. For starvation drains away the body’s volume, lustre, firmness, performance and strength. You should take food in accordance with your individual capacity, neither too much nor, from pride, too little.” From Buddhist Scriptures (, edited by Edward Conze (1959).

Bruce Lee Diet Rule 2: Chinese Food

Bruce Lee enjoyed Chinese food, as he felt that western food was often too bland. Some of his favourite Chinese dishes were beef in oyster sauce and tofu. However, he loved to eat steak and liver too, but overall preferred the more balanced approach of Asian dishes. He felt that often Western food placed too much emphasis on protein and fat and not enough on carbohydrates from vegetables, rice, pasta etc.

Bruce Lee Diet Rule 3: Avoid Dairy Food

Bruce Lee did not like dairy food, and only ate dairy as part of protein drinks, usually using powdered milk instead of fresh milk. This rule only helps to reduce total energy intake. Calcium from dairy has been found to help reduce the amount of fat that is digested (see Weight Loss Tip 7).

Bruce Lee Diet Rule 4: Smaller Portions and More Meals


For Bruce Lee concentration on the type of foods eaten were not the only important consideration, the size of portions and number of meals were just as important. Bruce Lee would usually consume four or five smaller meals a day rather than a couple of large meals, plus some healthy snacks such as fruits.

Today bodybuilders often follow similar eating habits, eating high protein meals approximately every four hours to ensure the body has a good supply of proteins to help build and repair muscle tissue. Eating more often than every four hours can put too much pressure on the digestive system, leading to indigestion. This is another reason why constant snacking is not good for you.

Bruce Lee Diet Rule 5: Drink Protein Drinks

Bruce Lee consumed one or two protein drinks every day, plus fruit smoothies too. Although his protein drinks varied, they generally consisted of:

  • Non-instant powdered milk – which is reported to have a higher concentration of calcium than other forms of powdered milk
  • Eggs – sometimes with the shells
  • Wheat germ / wheat germ oil
  • Peanut butter
  • Banana
  • Brewers yeast (contains concentrated B vitamins, which are essential in the release of energy from carbohydrates).
  • Inositol supplement (Inositol is found in many foods, particularly in cereals with high bran content. Inositol plays an important part in the health of cell membrane, in particular the specialized cells in the brain, bone marrow, eyes and intestines. The function of the cell membrane is to regulate the contents of the cell, which makes effective functioning of the cell possible).
  • Lecithin - taken in granular form. (Lecithin is a mixture of glycolipids, triglycerides, and phospholipids. It is needed by every cell in the body and is a key building block of cell membranes; without it, they would harden. Lecithin protects cells from oxidation).

All ingredients would be mixed thoroughly in a food blender. Bruce Lee suggested that for better results (i.e. for gaining more muscle mass quicker) milk and cream can be added too.

Please bear in mind that the supplements Bruce Lee took were popular when he was researching bodybuilding during the 1960’s and early 1970’s, these supplements may now be superseded by new ones producing better results. Also bear in mind that all supplements may have side effects if taken to excess. It is best to check with your doctor/GP before starting a bodybuilding diet.

Bruce Lee Diet Rule 6: Take Dietary Supplements

Bruce Lee also took many mineral and vitamin supplements. Today there is a much greater variety of supplements on offer than there were when Bruce Lee was training. Knowledge about how different supplements interact and benefit us has advanced a great deal since the 1960’s, as a result there may be better and more efficient supplements available than the ones listed below. However, here are some of the supplements Bruce Lee is known to have taken:

  • Vitamin C
  • Lecithing granules
  • Bee Pollen
  • Vitamin E
  • Rose hips (liquid form)
  • Wheat germ oil
  • Natural protein tablets (chocolate flavour)
  • Acerola – C
  • B-Folia

Bruce Lee Diet Rule 7: Increase Carbohydrates by Juicing and Blending

Bruce Lee knew that carbohydrates are essential for people with very high activity levels. It was for this that he regularly consumed fresh fruit and vegetable smoothies. Fruit and vegetables provide the richest source of carbohydrates, so Bruce Lee would often make juices/smoothies comprising of carrots, celery, apples, bananas and some parsley.

Usually carrots would make up one half of the contents of the drink, the remaining being split between the other fruits and vegetables. He also sometimes used green leafy vegetables, again with a large proportion of carrot juice to help offset the bitterness of the green leafy vegetables. Bruce Lee was ahead of his time hear, as these are the basic rules applied in our article that details several ways to lose belly fat.


Juicing fresh fruit and vegetables is a great way to consume high quality carbohydrates. Juicing allows the body to assimilate many nutrients more easily. The enzymes in the juiced vegetables are also organic catalysts that increase the rate at which food is broken down and absorbed.

Many enzymes are destroyed when vegetables are cooked, especially if boiled, therefore consuming raw fruit and vegetables is best. Some nutritionists suggest that for better health and more energy, approximately half of the carbohydrates consumed should come from raw fruit and vegetables.

Bruce Lee Diet Rule 8: Eat Honey and Ginseng

Bruce Lee often drank a Royal jelly and ginseng drink to give him a quick boost. These drinks are very small, and provide a very quick release of energy. Royal jelly contains B-complex vitamins, including a high concentration of vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid) and vitamin B6 (pyridoxine), acetylcholine, hormones, and eighteen amino acids. It also contains trace of many minerals, trace amounts of vitamin C, some enzymes, as well as antibacterial and antibiotic components. Contrary to claims by many of those promoting its use, vitamins A, D, and E are completely absent from royal jelly.

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Ginseng promotes Yang energy, improves circulation, increases blood supply, revitalizes and aids recovery from weakness after illness, and stimulates the body.

Bruce Lee Diet: Sample Meals

Obviously Bruce Lee’s diet would have varied greatly during the 1960’s and early 1970’s as his training methods evolved, but here is what is possibly one of his typical days meals:


  • Food: A bowl of muesli cereal, comprised of whole grains, nuts, and dried fruits, plus 2% milk (semi skimmed).
  • Beverage: Orange Juice and/or tea.


  • Juice or Protein Drink: Protein powder, non-instant powdered milk made with water or juice, eggs, wheat germ, bananas, peanut butter. Brewer’s yeast was frequently added.


  • Food: Meat, vegetables, and rice.
  • Beverage: Tea.


  • Juice or Protein Drink: see ingredients for morning-snack protein drink.


  • Food: Spaghetti and salad, or another meal of rice, vegetables, and meat, chicken, or seafood.
  • Beverage: One glass of 2% milk and/or tea.

    Sean, the bulk of the information is derived from the referenced book, The Art of Expressing the Human Body. The information on what Bruce ate was provided by Linda Lee who prepared most of his meals, and she certainly says that he ate meat. To quote from the book: “the family often ate meals consisting of rice, vegetables, and meat, chicken, or seafood” and goes on to say that “beef in oyster sauce, one of Lee’s personal favorites.” Also, he ate a lot of steak, Linda recalls that “Bruce was fond of steak….. for a while had liver once a week”.

    So, in answer to your question, the “known” information comes from Linda Lee, was published in The Art of Expressing the Human Body in 1988 by Tuttle Publishing. Bruce was definitely not a vegetarian. Some people just make things up without doing any research in an attempt to cash in on his name. Feel free to put them right!

    I’m a bit confused about the dairy.

    The rules say, “Bruce Lee did not like dairy food, and only ate dairy as part of protein drinks…” But the sample meals show milk at breakfast with the muesli and then another glass with dinner.

    So he had up to two glasses per day? Seems like a lot for someone who didn’t like dairy.

  6. MotleyHealth
    February 25, 2010 at 4:46 am

    Bruce Lee was certainly not a vegetarian. He was known for eating raw eggs and raw beef as part of his protein regimen. Bruce Lee’s wife and daughter have both talked about his dietary routines and workout regimen and it has been covered in numerous documentaries on his life.

    Hi Brando. Bruce really is an amazing inspiration. His devotion to his art was extraordinary. I wish you the best of luck in your training. Read that book and then read it again. The workouts in there will help you to build on what you learn in class. The nutrition advice is still relevant today, in fact very similar to the “caveman diet” that many celebs are doing now.

    I do not think Bruce was vegetarian but I do think if he had lived a longer life, he would have been eventually. He always was always a student of life and in constant evolution for the truth. There is no way he would neglect the last 40 years of science that shows how better a vegan diet is for everyone, especially for athletes.

  19. Drek

    It says that Bruce Lee used smaller portions. Can anyone give an example of these portion sizes? How many cups of rice? Of vegetables? Of meat? And what kind of meat did he consume? because my school offers an “Asian Line” offering rice or noodles, vegetables, and a choice of teraki, mandarin, and orange chicken. So I was just thinking that that’s perfect

  20. MotleyHealth
    February 9, 2011 at 5:12 pm

    Avoid white rice and noodles. Bruce did not share the size of his portions. He focused on ingredients. Back in his day portions were generally a sensible size,. not like the massive plates people serve now.

    You could take a small wholemeal sandwich with salad, or have a good breakfast then just eat some fruit for lunch (bananas, apples, oranges will all provide energy). Or you could prepare a small pasta salad. If you have a microwave you can use then you can take a healthy stew and heat it up.

    Bruce Lee did have an incredible body and outlook. His power to weight ratio was incredible. Holding out 35kg in front arms locked for 20sec weighing 64kg is VERY impressive. Ive never met anyone else who can do that! Even at 100kg i couldnt quite do it, the core strength and delt strength you need is very surprising! Motley id also suggest to skip the microwave. Bruce wouldnt have liked them once he found out what they do to life forms! A wholegrain sandwhich with salad and natural peanut paste would make a good portable meal no need for refrigeration :)

    Bruce Lee was always evolving. We know this about his Jeet Kune Do, his personal philosophy and apparently it was true of his diet too. In his later years, he became vegetarian – that is the Bruce Lee his daughter knows. She has stated he avoided meat and told her to be meatless also. She stated this on a British TV show a few years ago.

  60. MotleyHealth
    September 23, 2012 at 9:39 am

    When you take your protein drink is largely dependent on they type of protein and when you exercise. If you have whey protein, take that immediately after your workout. If casein based, then any time really, morning or before bed.

    As for a good time to workout – the best time is the time that you enjoy the most. Simple as that. I hate early mornings, so always workout in the evenings. Some people love morning workouts. It really makes little difference.

    Um, you do know that Bruce Lee died incredibly young, right?

    Lee’s death has been shrouded in mystery, but the general cause is that he took a NSAID, and he reacted to it very strongly and died. Yet he had taken this drug before. The clearest reason for his death was that his body fat was down to 1-3%, and the morbidly low bodyfat screwed up his metabolism so that he could not properly process the NSAID. In short, Bruce Lee starved himself and overworked himself to death. I would not follow his training/diet regime. He would have lived longer if he’d spent his days smoking and eating Ho-Ho’s.

  62. MotleyHealth
    October 7, 2012 at 1:41 am

    Yes, we know that he died young. If his death was shrouded in mystery how can you be so sure of its cause?

    The general thought is that equagesic (a drug of aspirin, meprobamate and sometimes ethoheptazine and now discontinued due to its severe side effects) was the cause of death. As far as his training and use of nutrition are concerned, he was years ahead of his time.

    Lots of athletes have low body fat – this is not a direct cause of death for anybody.

    Good question Ali. Something we did research when the article was written, but we came to no conclusion.

    The best guess is that it refers to a vitamin B supplement extracted from various leaves (folia). It could also have been a brand of folic acid supplement, vitamin B9 is folic acid and folate combined, and is essential to healthy body function.

    Most people forget that each person is different and what works for one person might not be the best for another. Just eat what your instincts are telling you and try not to brainwash yourself with everything you see, read and hear. Choose fresh and organic and don’t over eat!

    What if your instincts are telling you to eat lard and chips? I get your point though!

    What a pile of BS. If he ate all that crap… No wonder he died in this early age… Oh my GOD…. this is just unbelievable… Only and only food for human being is raw and alkaline food. That is all you have to know. Food as nature made it! Raw and alkaline.

    Raw and alkaline? Sorry, but that is nonsense. We have been cooking food for a very long time, to suggest we go back to eating berries and leaves is a little unrealistic. And alkaline? How do you chose alkaline foods in the first place, without a Wikipedia page listing them?

    Some acidic foods: plums, cranberries, blueberries, eggs, lentils, corn, olives, pecans, walnuts, peanuts, cashews and pistachios.

    Sorry, but explain exactly why these foods are bad. And are you suggesting that Bruce Lee would have got even better results if he had avoided them?

    Well I’m not exactly over weight but i would like to lose some..and have more energy. I was wondering what exercise should i start with first, does it matter. I ride my bike on a regular basis but it’s not enough,I do however feel energetic after exercising,but it only last a little. I’m also doing my research not just going into this blindly. Any suggestions or advice.

    P.S. Your article helped a lot, Thanks great job.

    Hi Mar, read a lot. Exercise is important, but for good health, good diet is probably more important. Get your diet right then worry about exercise after. Most people will stop exercising at some point in their lives but healthy eating must last throughout.
