Paleo Plan follower Bradley Cooper gains 40lbs for film role.
He’s just been nominated for a Best Actor Oscar for his latest role. Gaining 40 pounds of muscle to play a Navy SEAL in “American Sniper”
It’s no surprise that Bradley Cooper went to extreme lengths with the Paleo Plan in order to get in character.
In order to gain so much weight in just a few months, the 40-year-old actor was eating four times the amount recommended for an average person.
‘Bradley had a strict, crazy diet,’ said producer Jason Hall, he also went on to add ‘He was eating about every 55 minutes or something like that, and I want to say it was about 8,000 calories a day’
The Paleo plan is twice as effective as other diets.
Cooper was just as committed when it came to his exercise regimen.
‘Bradley used his own trainer, who was busting on him,’ Hall said. “I think he was working out four hours a day for several months”
‘He was determined to do it naturally, he didn’t want to use any hormones or steroids or anything. He was just very systematic about it and took his trainer with him wherever he went.’
The American Hustle star recently mentioned he was motivated to bulk up naturally with the Paleo Plan, having been sober for 10 years after a period of drug and alcohol abuse.
Other Paleo Plan fans include Tim McGraw & Joe Manganiello.
Could you eat as often as every 55 minutes?
