Kellen Lutz? More like Kellen Lotz of Exercise. The Twilight and Legend of Hercules star recently revealed what it is which gives him such a muscly physique. As you can probably guess, it's a combination of lots of exercise and a healthy diet.
Lutz is one of the latest stars to advocate the paleo diet, a relatively new diet regime which, ironically, apes the nutrient intake of our ancient ancestors. The paleo diet emphasizes high-quality animal proteins, fats, vegetables and fruits, and excludes gluten, sugar, dairy, legumes, starches, alcohol and processed foods - basically all the good stuff. He told Knoxville.com:
I adopted the Paleo diet. It helped me because I had tons of energy. It made me even more healthy and able to stay sick-free and push, because I pushed myself quite a bit. I ate a lot of proteins but it was really hard deleting the candy from my system because I love candy. You really just notice that your body will adjust, and you feel healthier.
With all that extra energy, he can apparently do a whole heap of exercise. He told Daybreak:
I have a healthy, active lifestyle, and a lot of the hotels I stay at don’t have gym facilities. So I like to get active on the airplane. I get a bit fidgety, so I’ve created a couple of workout devices just to help with the training. I'm an action junkie at heart. I love pushing myself to the limit. I love mixed martial arts, weapons training, guns, knives, driving fast cars, and motorcycles. I love it all.
Wow. Who'd have guessed eating healthily and exercising could be good for you?
What do you think? Could you go on the paleo diet, or would quitting all that sugar and booze be too hard for you?
