HOW DID CHRIS PRATT LOSE HIS WEIGHT?
The American actor weighed around 300 pounds when he auditioned for the Marvel film "Guardians of the Galaxy." But he revealed he lost 60 pounds in six months with the help of nutritionist Phil Goglia and personal trainer Duffy Gaver.
Goglia's carefully crafted a diet plan for Pratt, increasing his caloric intake to 4,000 calories per day and increasing his water intake. The actor also revealed following his diet plan meant no carbs, beer, hash browns, burgers, or "anything fried."
Pratt also offered words of support to those who aspire to reduce weight. According to the "Parks and Recreation" alum, there is no technique or secret to losing weight fast, only patience and consistency.
Meanwhile, Gaver designed a five-month rigorous training regimen for the actor. He began training Pratt in February 2013, averaging four to six sessions per week.
Pratt, who knew precisely the physical form he wanted to achieve, would also work out on his own if he was in the mood. He had bodybuilding workouts primarily during the first two months. The next two months were a mix of bodybuilding and conditioning.
In the final month, Pratt focused on conditioning workouts consisting of cardio circuits, swimming, mountain biking, and faster-timed sessions. Conditioning workouts also often include a treadmill or rower circuit in addition to weightlifting or calisthenics.
