Fitness Universe: What the Hell Do These Dudes Eat?

Bodybuilders. They're big, they're buff, they're impossibly jacked. And while most people assume these toned physiques stem from steroid use, the truth is -- a huge part of having a musclebound bod involves what you put in your piehole.

With the Fitness Universe competition coming to Miami next weekend, we decided to talk to a couple of local hopefuls about what they eat to maintain those perfect physiques. (And no, you can't eat donuts every day and still have a bod like the Rock. Sorry to disappoint.)

First up, we spoke to a dude -- Phil Elbaz, a 26-year-old athlete from Miami Beach. At 5'9" and 178 pounds, he boasts 6% body fat. Find out how he got there after the jump.
