Actors and actresses are constantly under massive pressure to remain fit. The best way to achieve this has always been through working out and staying on a diet plan. Of the two, however, diet is the most efficient way of ensuring one stays fit. With a good workout plan if your diet isn’t good then at the end of the day the exercise remains ineffective. So do you want to know what food the Wolverine star Hugh Jackman used to get that body? Perhaps you want the good looks that Jennifer Lawrence had during The Hunger Games? The following are some of the diets they used:
1. Six pack diet plan
Rehan Jalali created the six pack diet plan. In this plan, one is encouraged to take six to seven small meals each day. 45% of this meal is supposed to contain complex carbs like sweet potatoes, brown rice, and broccoli. 35% is made up of lean proteins such as egg whites, lean steak, chicken breast, etc. 20% is essential fats like flaxseed oil and almonds. This is a very efficient diet plan, and Ben Affleck is a testimony for this. Remember him in the film “The Town?” Yes, this diet and several hours of workout are what gave him that hunk body.

2. No processed carbs
The fitness levels required for different character roles in movies needs stars to have extreme perseverance. One of the best diets in helping them attain this is through avoiding processed carbs. Bradly Cooper, for example, in “The A-Team” and in “Silver Linings Playbook” managed to perform so well due to a lack of processed carbs in his diet. Other things that were eliminated from this diet include dairy, sauces and read meat.
3. Reduced saturated fats
The best way to achieve a tip-top body shape is through reduction of saturated fats. Such a plan will ensure that there are no excessive fats in your body that can not only make you lose the desired body shape but could also pose dangers to your general health. When on a reduced saturated fats diet, most actors also try to supplement this plan with healthy carbs. These carbs assist in providing the fuel that enables one to remain active. Such a strategy has been successful to most actors such as Jennifer Lawrence when playing the character Katniss Everdeen in “The Hunger Games.”
4. Soy ice creams
In most cases, actors typically try to slim down. There are other instances, however, when their producers ask them to bulk up. If the producers are offering you a lucrative payday for a role and all you had to do is gain a few pounds would you turn down the offer? Probably not. But what is the best way to gain temporary weight within weeks? Jessica Chastain, “The Help” star, explains that she had to consume lots of soy ice creams to achieve this. Once the filming was done, she went back to her regular diet enabling her to regain her original body.
5. Lean proteins and vegetables
A combination of lean proteins and vegetables is one of the secret plans towards attaining a lean magical figure. Fish and chicken especially when eaten with vegetables have incredible benefits to the body. Australian star Naomi Watts, for instances, says that this diet plan together with snacks like nuts, green tea, and fruits help her to remain in shape.
6. Gluten free diet
Nutritionists’ explain that any moment an individual starts omitting certain types of foods, then they are going to lose considerable weight. Most stars including Russell Crowe, the “Gladiator,” have lost weight through eliminating groups of foods filled with e.g. gluten. Studies, however, show that for better results one should instead enrich their entire diet by adding veggies, lots of fruits, lean proteins and healthy fats.
If there’s a Hollywood star’s body that you’ve always admired, then you need to know that they do more than just spending hours in the gym. Try and know the diet plans they are on. If you can reciprocate that, then you will be surprised by how easy it may be to become their look-alike. Well, at least a body shape look-alike!
