Matthew McConaughey Speaks Out About His Dramatic Weight Loss
Not sure if you have seen recent photos of Matthew McConaughey weight loss for his upcoming role in which he plays an AIDS patient in a new movie The Dallas Buyers Club, but the photos are shocking and speaks highly about how serious he takes his job & profession. The dedication, desire and discipline it takes to be able to go through what he has done not only physically but emotionally to himself is amazing and he deserves a lot of respect, whether or not the movie The Dallas Buyers Club is a hit or not.
Below is what Matthew McConaughey had to say about his weight loss:
“I feel good now,” the 43-year-old tells HitFix. “Overall, [I] probably got 35 percent less energy. But the tough part is there have been plateaus.
Getting past 170 was really hard, but then once you get 167, the next seven come off easy.
Getting past 160, really hard, but then you fly down to 150.
Getting past 150 was really hard and then, bam! Got down to 143 and that’s where I want to be.
So, once you get past the plateau, your body seems to understand, ‘OK, this is where we’re leaving now, this is where we are,’ and so the energy rises.”
Matthew McConaughey, who is nearly 6 feet tall, says that through the process he discovered that his diet had more of an impact on his weight loss than his exercise regime did.
“I’m doing cardio but I’ll tell you what, the more I’ve learned is — and I think it comes with age, too — is it’s 90 percent diet,” he explained.
“It’s 90 percent amount and then what you’re eating because right now I’m not losing any more weight if I burn 1,500 calories — two hours of cardio in an afternoon — or if I don’t. It doesn’t matter.
It’s a matter of how much I eat or how little I eat.”
The actor notes his appetite has drastically decreased throughout his slim down, and when the movie wraps and he can return to his old diet, he’ll proceed with caution. “The organs shrink, so my stomach has shrunk as well,” he says.
“So as much as I can’t wait to have that cheeseburger, on that day, it’ll be damn hard to eat the whole thing.”
But make no mistake — he is already planning exactly how that burger will be prepared. “I will have some 70 percent beef, 30 percent fat ground beef, maybe a half pound cheeseburger with another three types of cheese,” he shares.
“I’ll prepare it all [myself] and I’ll make sure that it takes three hours just to prepare.
I’m going to have buns with butter on both sides, toasted and grilled.
I’m going to melt the cheese on the top bun [and add] Hellmann’s Real Mayonnaise.
I want kosher dill pickles sliced nice and thin, diced white onions, slightly grilled until they get almost hard, and some thin jalapeno slices.
And then I’m just going to sit back and let the [expletive] just drop on the ground.”.. Original here
