Bodybuilder Diet

I have been placed on this more or less traditional bodybuilder's diet (the Cartman sucking down Weight Cain 4000 to become "beefcake"! is not really the goal!) Lunch and dinner are basically:

1. lean protein (fish, chicken, turkey)
2. green salad
3. green leafy veg
4. brown rice or yams

I'm finding ways of spicing it up at home without drowning my dishes with sugary, fatty sauces (Lord knows I'd like to!), but want some options as to where to dine out under these conditions. I live in East WeHo and work in the Norwalk/Santa Fe Springs area.

  1. Go to Fogo Ce Chao and get the Churascurria. AYCE Brazilian BBQ meats. SOme leaner cuts.

    Sushi palces. Get sashimi.

    Hugo's has many options you might like. There is one in WeHo

    Gelson's deli and salad bar

    M cafe De Chaya

      1. I was on that diet awhile back. Eat Well and the Griddle for breakfast or lunch will do exactly what you need for the diet and it's very tasty.

        1. Rocky Cola Cafe has a fitness menu with menu items like buffalo and brown rice.

          1. California Chicken Cafe. Get the breast and peel the skin off. They don't have brown rice or yams, but they have steamed pureed butternut squash with no fat or salt added to it. You can get chicken the butternut squash and a side salad as a combo meal. I have them hold the croutons and substitute raw chopped broccoli on my salad. They also have several low-fat salad dressing options.
