Henry Cavill Opens Up Further About Intense Man Of Steel Diet!

henry cavill talks more about his man of steel workouts

Guys, this is super intense.

The more we find out about what Henry Cavill had to do to get into Man of Steel shape, the less we want to be a superhero. LOLz!

The actor gave some new deets about all the craziness he went through to become Superman, saying:

"It's a very, very long and involved process. Five months before shooting there was varying stuff which ended up being mass building and then leaning down. Throughout the shoot it was just waking up and making sure I got an hour in [of exercise] before I went to work. [He went through] a horrible eating phase … where we really, really leaned down. It was exhausting. They didn't force me to give anything up. They just cut my calories right down to 2,500 [a day]. And keep in mind, only a few months ago I'd been up to 5,000. So it was a big drop… It was hard but it paid off."

WOW! It’s like having another part-time job!

Maybe the leaning down period was what he meant when he said that he didn’t eat, because starving yourself is nuts!

So what did he do to celebrate his regime ending? Cavill said:

"I had an apple pie, a tub of ice cream and a full pizza."

Now THAT sounds like it was all worth it!

It’s not unusual for actors to go through hardcore workouts when they’re prepping for a part, but we’re surprised when we hear just how much they do!

    As a girl, I have a very hard time feeling bad for him having to eat a 'mere' 2,500 calories a day.

    How can anyone - female or male - eat 5,000 calories a day?! That's crazy. And even cutting down to 2,500 is still a lot!

    Assuming these calories are coming from real foods such as grains, veggies and legumes, fruit, lean meats, and dairy (and not sugary junk food) then it adds up to A LOT OF FOOD being eaten throughout the day even on a 2,500 calorie "diet".

    It seems to me like Henry might be an OVEREATER (which explains why he was a fat little boy) and is looking for any reason to complain.

    @ Jenn

    Wow, that is the dumbest thing I've ever heard. The average amount of calories a day, for men, is 2500. To gain a lot of muscle mass in a short time 5000 cal. is not unusual, especially because these diets are supported with gainers.

    I don't know if you're a troll or just plain stupid, saying that anyone is looking for a reason to complain. Having an extremely heavy cardio schedule in order to get leaner is very hard combined with a low calorie intake.
