We have still got another year to wait until we get to final experience the latest reboot of the Superman franchise, with the Zack Snyder directed movie Man of Steel. However, with the movie already well into filming, there has already been quite a fair amount of Man of Steel material available for fans to cast their eyes over, especially pictures from the set of the Superman movie.
Now, Henry Cavill, who is the latest actor to take on the role of Superman in Man of Steel, has revealed how much effort went into his diet to help to get him into shape for the role of a lifetime. Henry revealed his diet, saying, “I’m on 5000 calories a day… You’ve got to eat protein first, then a little bit of carbs…you’ve got to keep your hunger levels going.”
That is quite some diet when you consider that if you compare a diet
, 5000 calories is approximately double the recommended daily guideline amount for the average male. However, Henry Cavill
needed to bulk up and he worked out so hard that his body needed the extra intake. You can see Henry Cavill
in Man of Steel
when it is released on June 14, 2013.
