However, actor Mark Wahlberg is not in favor of intermittent fasting and he prefers a healthy breakfast over it.

The Mile 22 actor told CNBC,

“For me, I’ve dealt with the ketone fad and intermittent fasting and all that stuff, but I’m old school. I like to eat small, healthy meals every three hours.”

The actor also revealed that his co-workers tried to persuade him into intermittent fasting but he was adamant. Wahlberg shared, “I like to eat when I get up. I want to eat.”

Wahlberg also once got into an argument with a cardiothoracic surgeon and TV host Mehmet Oz. The doctor had told TMZ on January 10 that he’s banning breakfast in 2020 because it’s an advertising ploy and not really based on the truth about the health of people.

Wahlberg stated to TMZ on the following day,

“Listen, I don’t care what Dr. Oz says, I gotta have my breakfast before I work out, that’s my preference.”

The Deepwater Horizon fame is known for being headstrong and confident about its lifestyle choices.
