Hollywood star Jonah Hill has been on a bit of a weight loss roller coaster since 2011. When pictures surfaced of Jonah Hill’s dramatic weight loss in 2015 fans could hardly recognize the king of modern day Hollywood comedy. Jonah shed close to 40 lbs. for some big movie roles in 2015 and even got the help from The Rock and a top Hollywood trainer.
That’s right! Jonah Hill became close friends with The Rock in 2014 and after sharing his weight loss woes with the Hollywood Muscle Man, the Rock had just the game plan. Do you smell what the Rock is cooking?! Bad joke aside, The Rock shared his fitness secret with Jonah Hill and recommended that he change his external influences.
The Rock explained that if he hired a trainer that actually motivated him to maintain the fitness lifestyle he would never look back. The Rock made a call to his favorite motivational trainer – and BOOM GOES THE DYNAMITE!
Jonah Hill started eating clean and working out like he has never done before. Jonah admits that the first 2 weeks were the hardest but he kept his eyes on the prize.
Jonah’s trainer made sure that he implemented 3 major changes into Jonah’s life that were slowing down his metabolism.
- Jonah had to stop consuming donuts in the morning. This was Jonah’s guilty pleasure and set the tone to be lazy and make bad eating decisions all day. Jonah swapped out the decadent bagel for a hearty whole grain bagel. It’s not about making drastic changes on day 1, but rather small incremental changes that add up to a whole lot by the end of the year. Instead of telling Jonah to eat an egg white omelet with spinach his trainer knew that he would have to slowly adjust him to the new lifestyle.
- No more stimulants, energy drinks, and coffee! Jonah is no stranger to extreme weight loss. Back in 2011 he lost close to 40 lbs. pretty quickly only to gain it right back. Jonah was using dangerous fat loss stimulants and over the counter products to spark his metabolism. This was a dangerous combination that resulted in what weight loss experts call a “yo-yo” diet. Jonah opted for the all natural route this time, and started taking Liquid L-Carnitine along with powerful all natural weight loss pills. This combination kept his weight from creeping back after the diet.
- No more drunken binge eating at 2 AM! Jonah loves to party and enjoy the Hollywood lifestyle – but it finally caught up with him. Jonah has been partying hard since his Super Bad days – and late night eating usually leads to ice cream, pizza, and the convenience store snack aisle.
Although we were unable to get the exact meal plan that Jonah Hill followed the last few months to supercharge his health and weight loss – we have a few of his favorite meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner along with his supplement regimen.
Morning Weight Loss Regimen:
Jonah made a pact with his trainer that he would stay away from donuts for breakfast – so he regularly opted for whole grain bagels with reduced fat cream cheese and chai spiced tea. This was a huge change from the usual combination of salt, sugar, fat, and caffeine that accompanied his donut and coffee choice.
Along with his slow digesting carbohydrate rich breakfast Jonah would take 2 all natural metabolism boosting pills to increase his energy and increase his body’s fat burning potential.
Jonah Hill was often traveling and on a movie set for much of his weight loss – so the options for lunch varied quite a bit. When Jonah was in LA he would have his private chef make him a low carbohydrate lunch he would bring to the movie set. Jonah’s favorite choice was a pan seared sirloin steak salad. Jonah’s private chef would make an 8-ounce sirloin steak and pan fry it in coconut oil. He would then put the delicious and lean cut of steak onto a big big of spinach leaves, whole grain croutons, and low calorie salad dressing.
After lunch Jonah would again supplement with his powerful all natural weight loss pills.
Dinner always consisted of some combination of Sashimi, Steak, or Seafood. These are foods that Jonah loves and they are all loaded with high quality protein. Jonah would enjoy take out from some of Hollywood’s best sushi spots, or have his private Chef whip him up a high quality piece of Salmon, Sea Bass, or Filet Mignon at home.
Jonah would sometimes take a 3rd dose of his powerful all natural weight loss pills if he had to work on a movie set late at night, or would enjoy a glass of Chai spiced tea to unwind for the night.
