An Action Star’s Weight Loss Diet Plan
Jason Statham’s weight gain came the same way it does for most of us: a few too many beers and a couple of extra servings, compounded over time. Exercise hard and you’ll crave calories as fuel at the same time you loathe the millstone they can form around your middle.
“I never gave a f – k about a calorie,” Jason Statham says. “An apple? It’s good for me. I’d have five. Bananas? Eat the bunch,” the British action star said describing his once non-existent diet plan.
The actor is now sporting a newly redefined body and Jason Statham credits his rapid weight loss success mainly because he followed a strict diet plan which ended up being around 2,000 calories per day. Refined sugars, flour, breads, pastas and booze were taken out of his diet plan.
Jason Statham also drank a boatload of water which is proven to be a great weight loss help. He drinks about 5 litres of water a day – this cleanses the system and also fills you up. Jason Statham also consumed 6 small meals per day. Jason Statham diet plan was focused on eating the typical lean body foods such as egg whites, veggies, lean meats, diet supplements like whey protein shake, raw nuts and fish. Jason Statham diet plan did not forbid the actor from having deserts though which would often include fat free yogurt with mixed fruit added to it for flavor.
Not contented, the Transporter action star had gone far and beyond, taking the time to keep track of his diet plan. He writes everything he eats and drinks on what he calls his weight loss diet plan journal.
Jason Statham’s Intense Fitness Training Exercise Program
You know it’s an effective fitness training exercise program when the actor himself uses words such as: brutal, nauseating, nightmare and horrible to describe the fitness training sessions.
Apparently, Jason Statham had sought weight loss help by having Logan Hood, a former Navy Seal as his fitness trainer. He concocted this comprehensive fitness exercise program wherein he had Jason Statham doing exercise 6 days per week for about 35 minutes per session and rested on Sundays.
Jason Statham religiously followed two main principles in his fitness training: 1) every exercise was at least slightly different from the previous one and 2) everything was recorded in detail, including weights exercise equipment used, times for active and recovery periods, etc.
Each of his fitness exercise also consisted of 3 primary stages that progressively increased in ‘suckiness’:
1) a 10-minute warm-up exercise using the Concept 2 Rowing Machine exercise equipment, which is easy on the joints, raises core temperature and prepares all muscle groups for the upcoming work ahead.
2) next is 10-minutes of moderate intensity work that is always varied and may include: medicine ball throws, kettlebell circuits, ‘farmer walk’ type of exercises (carrying heavy shit while walking, like sandbags or dumbbells), circuit weight training or heavy compound strength training lifts.
3) the last phase is interval fitness training, which again varies slightly every exercise, but would look something like this: 8 pull-ups, 20 medicine ball slams, 20 weighted step-ups, 20 hanging knee raises, 20 barbell squats and 20 burpees. All 6 fitness exercises are performed back-to-back without rest, until you complete each movement in the circuit. Rest briefly and repeat for up to 5 circuits total.
