Ben Affleck followed a very strict meal plan when bulking up for his Batman role. Ben made sure that he put an emphasis on his nutrient timing along with increased protein intake.
Ben also made sure to consume adequate amounts of carbohydrates around his workouts so he had maximum energy and replenished his glycogen levels.
The last part of his diet approach was increasing his intake of healthy fat to boost his body’s natural testosterone levels.
Ben’s total daily calories typically exceeded 3,000 on workout days and over 2,500 on rest days. Here is an example daily meal plan on workout days.
Ben Affleck Sample Meal Plan (Batman Bulk)
Breakfast always consisted of eggs and oatmeal. To add in a boost of healthy fats Ben would top his eggs with sliced avocado. During the last part of his bulk Ben switched to egg whites so he could lower his total fat intake.
Late Morning Snack:
Ben would always have his go to snack here. A muscle building chocolate whey protein shake, large handful of almonds and his Formula T-10 testosterone-boosting supplement. This packed his body full of protein and testosterone boosting ingredients to start his day.
Ben typically worked out after lunch so he always made sure that he had a solid amount of good protein and carbohydrates for energy.
Ben typically would consume tilapia or chicken for lunch, as it was lighter on his stomach than beef and eggs.
His pre workout carbohydrates would consist of brown rice or whole grain pasta.
Post Workout Meal:
Immediately following his intense weight room workouts Ben would fill up on satisfying grass fed beef and more carbohydrates.
Since insulin is highly anabolic post workout Ben would consume simple carbohydrates like white rice and white potatoes along with fruit. His favorite post workout meal was grass fed beef, white rice and 1 cup of grapes.
Ben would also take his Alpha Cut HD following his workout to help cut body fat and increase his recovery.
Dinner was another key meal for Ben to increase his recovery and pack on lean muscle mass. Ben would make sure his last meal of the day was high in protein and contained some healthy carbohydrates to boost his muscle building.
Dinner usually consisted of a balance of lean protein, complex carbohydrates and healthy fats.
This meant that Ben would consume items like grilled salmon, sirloin steak, tilapia and grilled chicken.
For his carbohydrates he would almost always have a sweet potato or lentils – as these are healthy carbohydrates that helped his body recovery without adding to fat storage late at night.
For healthy fats Ben usually made a salad and used an olive oil based dressing. This gave him an incredible balance of nutrition for meal and optimized his lean muscle building overnight.
