How on earth does Christian Bale manage to lose weight so easily for his movie roles? He makes it look so easy, doesn’t he? Find out in this article. For example, he lost over 70 pounds before his role in The Machinist! That’s right, a whole 70 pounds! And he’s done a similar weight reduction again for his role in another movie. How on earth does he do it?
So What’s His Secret?
It comes down to two simple things: coffee and apples.
Coffee helps to increase the metabolism (like green tea, it’s popular for losing weight) due to the caffeine content. But if you want the full advantage then it’s best to avoid putting milk or creamer because these are rich in saturated fats which will just make you fat and defeat the whole purpose of this technique. If you’re not really a fan of coffee then you can just try tea instead – English tea, Early Grey or green tea. But so long as you spend a little extra to buy some quality coffee then it’s an easily acquired taste.
Apples are really good for losing weight. Maybe you’ve even heard of the “three-a-day” apple diet? You can safely eat apples as snacks between meals even if you don’t otherwise change your diet. This is because they are high in fibre and natural sugars so you don’t get hunger pangs or sugar cravings. The pectin in apples also dampens down the appetite.
Little wonder then that Christian Bale and others are even photographed carrying apples on the set!
