Chris Pratt knows how to get shredded.
The July/August 2014 Men’s Fitness cover star dropped 60 lbs in six months to prepare for Guardians of the Galaxy, and, before that, he got a ripped six-pack to play a U.S. Navy SEAL in Zero Dark Thirty.
Now, the 37-year-old actor is doing it again.
For his newest film, Jurassic World 2, Pratt is sticking to an intense diet plan to get lean, and that means he can’t chow down on chips, cookies, or candy when he’s itching for a snack. Instead, the actor is eating some healthy snack options—and in perfect Pratt fashion, he’s been documenting his snacks on Instagram in a series he lovingly calls, “What’s My Snack?”
In the first video, Pratt has some fun trying to pronounce the "cacao baobab banana chia" shake he’s supposed to have, which has 210 cal., 10 g of fat, 18 g of carbs, and 10 g of protein:
Pratt grabs some assorted sashimi for his next snack, which has a whopping 30 g of protein, but only 250 cal, 15 g of fat, and 10 g of carbs.
Pratt digs in, and the noted outdoorsman jokingly says it “tastes exactly like Berkley PowerBait. I see why trout love it.” Pratt’s loving it too:
The third installment picks up with Pratt looking for a late-night snack. The actor whispers his way through the kitchen and picks up his snack for the next day: An "olive oil pistachio cake" with 210 cal, 14 g of fat, 15 g of carbs, and 5 g of protein.
Pratt’s so hungry, he decides to eat a few bites—and then (almost) the entire thing:
The fourth installment: After falling prey to the cake's allure, Pratt apologizes for his behavior and goes for a more “manly” version of “What’s My Snack?”
Pratt makes sure everyone knows that “snacks don’t have that kind of power over me” and that he’s “strong, I’m a man, and I don’t get all hung up over some cake.”
The snack is an apple, and Pratt devours it in a way only a manly man could:
For the fifth installment of the series, Pratt got back to business with a freestyle rap about his snack, and, in natural Pratt fashion, he’s great at it.
This time he’s having a carrot cake muffin with 180 cal, 8 g of fat, 18 g of carbs, and 8 g of protein:
#WHATSMYSNACK It is said that when you fast you have visions. It goes back to the Bible and probably before. It's a spiritual experience to say the least. I'm not fasting per se but I am definitely at the point in this diet where I've began metabolizing my own brain for energy. Not to brag. If your body gets so hungry you start eating your own brain matter for energy, keep going! You're almost there! It means the love handles are next! And then you will be complete. You will have arrived at the destination. And forever you will be happy. Just kidding. Don't do it. Not worth it. Go get some Doritos or skittles. Both of which have Starlord's face on them right now!!!
Pratt is gearing up for another mega-summer with Guardians of the Galaxy 2 coming out on May 5, 2017. But that’s only getting things started: 2018 might be his biggest year yet, with both Avengers: Infinity War and Jurassic World 2 hitting theaters.
One thing’s for sure when it comes to Pratt: He’s going to be in great shape for those films.
