Zac Effron

The High School Musical sweetheart Zac Efron might have changed a lot since 2006. However, the one thing that has not changed a bit is how people, mainly girls, are still head over heels for the actor. The reason behind this might be his blinding looks, his commendable acting skills, or simply his Greek God physique.

The actor’s physique has changed tremendously over the years. Fans were especially taken aback by the wrestler-like shape Zac Efron has gotten into for The Iron Claw. In an interview with Men’s Health, he let fans in on the secret behind his health and physique; nutrition. He stated that as of now he is focusing on intermittent fasting mixed up with giving his body all the nutrition it needs. While once vegan, Efron stated that he gave up veganism and immediately set out on the journey of intermittent fasting.

The 17 Again actor revealed that he had to change his diet according to what the role demanded in each of his films. On one hand, for Baywatch, he had to have a really specific diet which included fish and sweet potatoes. While on the other hand, for The Greatest Beer Run Ever he did not take up any of the extreme diets as he got to eat whatever he wanted.

Efron admitted that Baywatch was one movie in which he had to go to the most extreme levels, adding that he was in ketosis for the entire movie. When asked if diets were more difficult to follow or his training regime, he stated that both elements are complimentary as he believes diet helps you train better.

The shape Efron has gotten into for The Iron Claw has fans unanimous approval with fans stating that they believe he must be in the gym 24 hours of the day. However, one cannot forget the shredded physique he had in Baywatch. Even though fans loved his look in the movie, the actor himself seems to disagree, stating that the whole experience almost burned him out.

I started to develop insomnia, and I fell into a pretty bad depression for a long time. Something about the experience burned me out. I had a really hard time recentering.”

Efron further stated that the Baywatch look is almost impossible to attain and that it looked almost CGI-enhanced. Even though we all know there was no CGI involved, he sure is right about that particular body type being an unrealistic goal. He stated that he had to go through Lasix and powerful diuretics to achieve the look and that he would gladly have 2 to 3 percent extra body fat instead.

Only time will tell what Zac Efron’s to-do list looked like for his role as a wrestler in The Iron Claw.

The Iron Claw is rumored to be released in theatres in late 2023 or early 2024.
