Matt Damon has gained and lost his fair share of weight over his career. His recent role in Elysium
“IT WAS FOUR HOURS A DAY IN THE GYM — AND I’M NOT 26 ANYMORE, BUT I GOT IN SHAPE.”
His favorite workout, however, is sprint drills, because they are fun to him. He says:
“TRY TO FIND SOMETHING YOU CAN IMPROVE AT, BECAUSE THAT WILL KEEP YOU DOING IT. AND THAT WILL MAKE IT FUN”
When training, Matt Damon eats 6 meals a day, divided into 3 larger meals and 3 smaller snack-like meals in between each. His total calories are broken down as such: 40% from protein, 20% from fat, and 40% from carbohydrates. He does, however, admit that extreme diets become more difficult on him as he gets older- and only adheres to strict diets when he needs to for a role.
