Chris Evans is an American actor who’s now widely known for his role as Captain America in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Prior to this amazing opportunity, he began his acting career on television with a starring role on Opposite Sex when he was around 19. He soon transitioned to film and became known for his role in Not Another Teen Movie, followed by starring roles in Cellular, Perfect Score, before reaching mainstream status for his role as the Human Torch in Fantastic Four and its sequel Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer. He starred in The Losers and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World in 2010 before making it really big with Captain America: The First Avenger in 2011. He has since portrayed the character in other Marvel films, like The Avengers, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Avengers: Age of Ultron, and in the recently released Captain America: Civil War.
The hunky actor has long been noticed for his good looks and towering height, which adds up to his overall appeal. However, he just got all bulked up in the 2010s to play Captain America, which has since done amazing things to his career in Hollywood. While it is known that Chris engaged in rigorous training to increase his muscles and achieve his now-huge muscular body, it is also interesting to note that the actor is a very healthy eater, which basically is the right thing to do to complement one’s workout efforts.
To prepare for his role as Captain America, he worked with trainer Simon Waterson, who said that Chris increased his weight from 77kg to 82kg, while reducing his body fat percentage from 12.5 to just 8%. To achieve this, aside from doing workout sessions, Chris mostly had low-carb protein shakes in between meals and snacks such as fruit and nuts. He was also required to take BCAAs [branched-chain amino acids] all throughout the day to reduce muscle tissue breakdown and encourage growth. With his amazing body in the several movies where he starred as the first avenger, all these seemed to be worth it.
