"Eat for what you are going to be doing, and not for what you have done. This means that the majority of your calories should be taken in during the active part of your day. Most of us are active between the hours of 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m."
"Stay away from foods high in fat and complex carbohydrates such as pasta, potatoes, breads, etc. when your goal is to lose bodyfat or drop a few pounds. Drink plenty of water during the day. The recommended amount is eight 8 oz. Glasses daily."
There are no records of Lee Haney ever admitting to using steroids. Considering the mass required of pro bodybuilders it can be a safe assumption that most take them. We won't accuse Lee Haney of taking steroids or anyone of taking them for that matter. We always list if a professional bodybuilder admits to taking steroids so if it's not listed here, we couldn't find record of it.
Aside from Lee pushing his own workout supplements on his personal website, there is little documentation on what supplements he took during his 8 year reign as Mr. Olympia.
