The Truth About Superheroes and Weight Loss

There are so many myths and bad misconceptions out there about superheroes that you see in both comic books and those that we see in these Hollywood movies. We think that Dwayne Johnson, Chris Pratt, Chris Hemsworth, Hugh Jackman, and the countless of others just workout and eat whatever they want and that they come out looking like cookie cutter buff guys. This is NOT true by any stretch of the imagination. The problem that we all face when wanting to look like this may be a bit different than what we originally thought it might be.

1. Workout More
You have to realize that the superheroes that you see in the movies don't just do 8-10 reps of their heaviest for their body and then they are done for the day. The majority of them workout upwards of an hour doing weight lifting and cardio work to look like that. Some of them workout multiple times in a day. You have to do more to be able to grow more. You can't lift a few weights and then be done for the day. You have to workout more in order to get superhero results with weight loss.

2. Quit Sugar
Imagine that Captain America's Chris Evans works out and then goes and drinks a soda afterwards. This just DOES NOT happen! Chris Evan's and all of the famous superheroes that get really big really fast are not eating or drinking sugar. They may have some on a cheat day every so often, but they're not sitting around, pigging out on sugar, and playing Call of Duty. In order to be the superhero, they have to literally BE the superhero. Quit your sugar if you want maximum weight loss and muscle gain like the superheroes.

3. Eat More
The biggest challenge that all of the actors and actresses face on a daily basis is eating WAY more than what they are used to. With the exception of Sylvester Stallone (he would eat 1100 calories of pure good food in a day), all of the rest of the superheroes are eating over 6000 calories of pure protein, some fat, and very low amounts of carbs in a day! Chicken and eggs are a huge favorite when eating like a superhero and achieving that weight loss.

As you can see, the truth hurts! Superheroes don't just get to eat garbage and sit on the couch in order to be able to be a cool and supermanly and superwomanly superhero. It takes a LOT of hard work, but it is worth it for each and everyone one of them. All of them drink enormous amounts of water. We would suggest the 6-8 glasses of water in a day unless you're active and using the water that you're taking in. I hope that you have enjoyed this post.
