American actor Matt Bomer started his career on a soap opera, appearing on 6 episodes of Guiding Light. His first regular role on television was on Tru Calling. He then became known for starring on the short-lived series Traveler. He was also known for his recurring role as Bryce Larkin on Chuck. After Chuck, he rose to fame for playing the lead (Neal Caffrey) on White Collar. The series lasted six seasons on television. This made him a household name, too. With this, he appeared in the films In Time, Winter’s Tale and Space Station 76. He also starred as Ken in Magic Mike and its sequel. He recently appeared in the movie The Magnificent Seven. After White Collar, he starred on American Horror Story: Hotel.
The 39-year-old actor bared it all in the film Magic Mike and its sequel Magic Mike XXL. He played a stripper on the show alongside fellow hunks Channing Tatum and Joe Manganiello. Of course, he knew he had to keep up. After all, this was his first starring role in a mainstream movie. Naturally, he worked out regularly to achieve a leaner and a bulkier physique. Another crucial part of attaining the perfect body is eating right and healthy. Normally, the actor is already a healthy eater. Being in his late 30s, he acknowledges the importance of nutritious diet.
In an interview, the actor said his diet is 80% of how he gets ripped. For him, food is fuel and not pleasure. Eating right is something that he does, especially when he needs to be in shape for a role. His basic dieting principle is combining protein and carbs. Protein slows down the body’s assimilation of calories. He sees eating straight carbohydrates as a poor habit. When one does this, there would be a rapid burn, which then accumulates fat. In an interview with Men’s Fitness, he said: “If you mix a protein with a starch, it’s going to significantly increase the time it takes for your body to break it down.”
