imagine a bodybuilding restaurant where the menu was ordered through bulking or cutting options. Deserts would be made exclusively from protein powders. Normal Bland bodybuilding food would be seasoned with approved ingrediants you think there are non ?  WRONG! #BBIML found out the best bodybuilder friendly restaurants worldwide!

“Firehouse” (Venice, CA)

   ”Being a bodybuilder there is no place better for breakfast.”

The Firehouse is one of these Venice institutions that’s always good. They serve breakfast lunch and dinner, but the best thing about Firehouse is their breakfasts.

They have soooo many healthy options. It sounds odd, but it’s a place loved by the muscle-head weight lifters around the neighborhood because of their healthy selections and variations on food. For example, which is my favorite, is their egg whites with fettucini and ground turkey and tomatoes. So good. Also their whole wheat pancakes are the best. They have regular food as well, but it you are looking to stay on the straight and narrow for health friendly dishes, The Firehouse is the place to go.  213 Rose Avenue, Venice, CA 90291

more suited to the bulkers amongst us although dieters will be able to enjoy this too… 

The meal starts off by helping yourself to the salad bar from which you can choose everything from broccoli through to pasta and potato salad and boiled eggs. once you are seated with whatever bits and pieces you have helped youreself to, waiters and waitresses will come round with various selections of BBQ’d prime meat cuts & poultry (protein)…

All you can eat Brazilian barbecue, they will keep coming to your table here with food until you say stop.   Endless portions of assorted meats straight of the skewer at your table.  I highly recommend this place for groups of people over 4 but is still great just for 2. (£20 per head)

different meats are constantly brought for you to enjoy and you can go back to the salad bar as much as you like.



“the mongolian barbeque”  (worldwide)

 ”this place is the best BB’er place to eat!”

as much meat/seafood and veg as you want served with rice you choose what you want chef cooks it and its brought to your table!!!!   if there is one near you its a MUST!! they do not cook with Oil. They put your food onto a hot stone and cook with water. The only time they will use oil is if you add it to your stir fry.

They also offer about 10 different sauces, each sauce lists each ingredient that is in it. So staying away from sugary and high sodium sauces is easy. They also offer regluar hot sauce if you want just that. Or you can go naked and just load up on the garlic instead.
