Ripped, stacked, chiseled, strong, superhuman. These are all words that are regularly used to describe Henry Cavill, aka Superman. The British actor has made it no secret that health and fitness are incredibly important to him. This is one of the reasons why the Man of Steel recently took on a new role as Chief Creative Officer at MuscleTech, a globally recognized brand of sports supplements. In a new interview with Celebwell, the 38-year-old details the exact diet responsible for his famous physique, and well as the supplement stack that helps him achieve all of his fitness goals.
1 His Diet is Extremely Regimented
It should come as zero surprise that Henry is extremely regimented when it comes to his diet. A typical day for him food-wise includes a variety of shakes, supplements, proteins, and digestible carbohydrates. And, instead of breaking down his diet into breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks, he categorizes his meals by number.
2 Meal One
“I wake up in the morning and I have a protein shake, one-and-a-half to two scoops of hundred percent grass fed whey protein, plus a cup and a half of oats, plus a two egg omelet with some ham or turkey in it, and four ounces of filet steak,” he explains. “That’s breakfast.”
3 Meal Two
His second meal consists of protein and carbs. “Six ounces of chicken breasts with brown rice,” he says.
4 Meal Three
Interestingly, meal three is exactly the same as meal two: Six ounces of chicken breast with brown rice.
5 Meal Four
For dinner, Henry switches it up a bit. “Meal four will be five ounces of filet of beef with sweet potato.”
6 Meal Five
Meal five isn’t actually a meal, but a shake. “I’ll have a pre-bed shake to make sure I don’t go into a catabolic state and that will be just protein and water,” he reveals.
7 He Indulges in One Cheat Meal Per Week
Henry reveals that he does give himself a break from his extremely regimented diet once a week. “My cheat meal depends on the week and the country,” he explains. One of his reliable go-tos? Pizza. “You could find pizza from pretty much any country,” he confirms. However, if he is in the UK he might indulge in some fish and chips, “or I may do a Sunday roast or something just to make a bit of an event out of it,” he says.
8 His Supplement Stack
In addition to food, Henry stays fueled up throughout the day with the help of MuscleTech supplements. “I have my basic line of supplements, my regular stack as we call it,” he reveals.
“At the moment I stick to 100% grass fed whey protein, and I have that as part of my breakfast, my post-workout shake and my pre bed shake. I also take a pack of multivitamins every day. I use Shatter Pre-workout if I’m feeling particularly tired before workouts. And I also use Amino Build during my workout to make sure that I’m getting the most out of it.”
9 “It’s All About Finding That Inner Strength”
Henry wants his fans to know that you don’t have to be a superhero to achieve fitness goals, which is one of the reasons he chose to partner with MuscleTech. “We all have the capacity for creating a physical self within us already. We already have those ingredients and it’s about keying into them and accessing them,” he explains. “It’s not, some people can, some people come, we all can. Absolutely. And it’s about finding that inner strength to push forward because as MuscleTech says, strength is more than just muscle. And that’s something which I love.”
