        Are you nuts ipse? The irresistible Pão de queijo will negate all that hard work!

      2. Tender Greens is good, Greenleaf Chop Shop (Bev Hills, Century City) also caters all of the to-go options at my gym and is delicious to boot. I think the difference is we don't have specific eateries catering to gym rats and muscle men. But pretty much any somewhat healthy eatery you walk into will have a protein + veggies option.

        You might like The Veggie Grill for the more fast food type option - it's all vegetarian but the food would fool any meat lover.

          1. The Firehouse in Venice does because of its proximity to Gold's Gym.

                The Cabbage Patch on South Beverly Drive offers chicken and salmon bowls you can do without the brown rice. Fresh Corn Grill on west wood blvd serves chicken/Salmon/shrimp with choice of veggie sides as well as "bowls" where you can leave off the rice.
