Michael B. Jordan has undergone a notable transformation for his role in Creed. Apart from following a rigorous workout routine, he also made changes to his diet plan to get ripped. He increased his consumption of proteins, eating egg whites, chicken, and fish each day to be paired with complex carbs like brown rice and oats, plus lots of veggies too.
“Literally in the middle of takes, I would just be eating food. Chicken and rice and broccoli — a lot of it,” said the actor.
