The Muscle Cook Dave Ruel My name is Dave Ruel, but most people know me as the "Muscle Cook". I am the author of the Anabolic Cooking Cookbook, a competitive bodybuilder, a professional Fitness Coach and Nutritionist.

As you may have noticed, I have 3 passions in life: Bodybuilding, Nutrition, and Cooking! 3 passions that complement each other really well don't you think?

I earned my nickname of "The Muscle Cook" by creating and developing Recipes and Meal Plans specific to bodybuilding and fitness that are healthy, tasty and far from your ordinary meal plans!

Over the past years I have helped a lot of people getting incredible results. I have been helping bodybuilders get shredded for bodybuilding shows, fitness models get ready for photoshoots and regular fitness enthusiastss transform their physiques!

I am also a strong believer that bodybuilding and fitness nutrition DOESN'T have to be plain and boring and only composed of boiled chicken breasts, baked potatoes and broccoli... without spending more time in the kitchen that you normally do, you can have meals that are full of flavours and that make it easier to reach your fitness goals...

That's why I have created this Cookbook and Nutrition Guide, I want to show you that it is possible to cook easy and tasty meals that will make you enjoy your lifestyle a lot more!

Currently my cookbook, Anabolic Cooking, has helped thousands of people in over 100 different countries. These people can now enjoy food again!

I have spent the past 4 years developing this book, creating and testing those recipes in my own kitchen...

Now, I have to be honest, not all of them made the cut, but about 200 of them did... All the recipes you will find in this book respond to 3 specific criteria: they are all easy to do, full of flavours, and will promote muscle building and fat loss. In fact, All my recipes are so easy to do, even a 10 year old could cook a super tasty meal! That means you have no excuses!

I also practice what I preach, which is why I won bodybuilding championships, did photoshoots and I am not afreaid to show it, unlike many other authors or so called "gurus" who talk about building muscle and getting ripped but are completely out of shape and just looking to make an easy buck with rehashed hype.

Follow me, and you'll discover that I’m the real deal, live and breath fitness and am truly committed to helping you transform your body.
