What would you do if you’re offered a lucrative modeling contract in Dubai, but you’re also told to lose a ton of weight? You might wonder, “Is there anything more dangerous than an obese pop star?”
Well, the truth is, yes. Yes, there is. What if I told you there was a way for you to become an incredibly wealthy and powerful celebrity, and along the way, you could shed off all those extra pounds as well?
Welcome to the wonderful world of Rob Pattinson. You see, the actor/model/musician has seemingly had it all. He’s graced the covers of various glamor magazines, starred in several acclaimed films, and even recorded a platinum-selling album. Oh, and did I mention that he’s one of the most in-demand celebrity diet gurus?
Now, if you’re really, really dying to know what his eating habits are, then this might just be the book for you. It’s already been years since his last novel was released, and while he’s kept busy with assorted activities, he hasn’t really written anything new. But that’s about to change.
Since he decided to follow a strict diet and lifestyle regimen, Rob has dropped a ton of weight, and along with it, his self-proclaimed “biggest fear”: ALS, or Lou Gehrig’s disease.
Indeed, in 2016, Rob was diagnosed with the neurological disorder. Since then, he’s focused on finding a cure, and while he hasn’t given up hope, it’s clearly taken a toll. The 52-year-old actor recently revealed that he can no longer speak, and the disease has rendered him partially paralysed.
The Key To Rob’s Success
If you’re looking to shed some pounds, there are plenty of fad diets you can try. But if you really want to make the most out of your new found celebrity, it might be best to try out Rob’s diet. Why?
Well, let’s take a look at his impressive track record.
In 2008, while filming Water for Elephants in Georgia, USA, the gorgeous hunk lost 15 pounds in just 10 days. And although he didn’t initially realise it, that was the start of something wonderful. The following year, a fan asked him about his diet, and he revealed that he’d been consuming only organic food and drinking only raw milk for the previous three months. Needless to say, his fans were very happy to hear that he was doing so well.
Since then, he’s stuck to his guns, and it’s clearly been effective. In 2015, while promoting his new movie, Selfish, he told Marie Claire that since following a vegan diet, he hadn’t had any illnesses. A year later, he was named the World’s Healthiest Celebrity, and since then, his health (and weight) have become a source of pride for fans.
He also credited his health to his longtime yoga instructor and wellness coach, Swami Sparshni, who he described as “the key to my success.” Whether you believe in that healthy living guru or just want to try something new, you can learn a lot from Rob’s food adventures. And let’s face facts: you never know when you might need a healthy lifestyle change, whether you’re a celebrity or not.
The Vegan Diet
As we’ve established, since Rob switched to a vegan diet, he’s remained healthy. Indeed, he credited the diet for giving him his “greatest happiness and health.” And who are we to argue with the man who carries the Queen’s grandson in his belly?
Now, it’s not that simple, veganism won’t make you thin. You’ll still need to work at it. But it will surely help. According to PETA, vegans have the third-largest waistline-to-hip ratio of anyone else on the planet, so it’s safe to assume that it’s a diet that can help with the obesitas. (1)
What’s more is that many vegans report a decrease in the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease. And who knows – maybe one day, we’ll all be following a vegan lifestyle to avoid getting sick in the first place.
Switching To A Raw Food Diet
In his latest diet revelation, Robert revealed that he’s been following a raw food diet for the past three months. To be more precise, he’s been consuming only fruits, vegetables, and nuts. No cooking, no wheat, and no dairy products. As you might imagine, this has made a massive difference to his health. So much so that he actually looked unrecognisable in his recent movie, Pattinson.
While he was in India promoting his new movie, he visited a temple there and was given prasai, a type of dry herb mix. He took this mixture in his hands, mixed it with some water, and said that it “sizzled” when it was boiled. When cooked this way, whole grains are broken down into simple sugars that the body can process more easily. And what’s more, this process gives you a burst of energy.
The Grapefruit Diet
Another way to boost your energy is with grapefruit. Yes, that delicious citrus fruit that’s been used in cooking, medicine, and even cocktails. While most people think of this fruit when they want to clear their skin or lose a few pounds, it’s actually a powerful energy booster. According to a study in the Journal of Nutrition, grapefruit may improve glucose tolerance, decrease waist size, and increase fat burning. (2)
Of course, grapefruit isn’t just restricted to weight loss. As well as helping with glucose tolerance, it’s been proven to decrease cholesterol, prevent tooth decay, and even fight cancer. So, next time you’re picking a fruit to make one of your famous gin cocktails, try out grapefruit instead.
Rob’s Eat-Clean Diet
After trying out a bunch of crazy diets, Rob has finally landed on a healthy regimen that he feels really good about. And for those of you who are eager to learn more, he’s shared a detailed plan that’ll have you eating clean and keeping off those extra pounds in no time.
His diet is based on fruits, vegetables, and nuts. Yes, that’s right – he’s gone vegan, as well. He told Grazia that since following a vegan diet, he no longer suffers from acne, eczema, or psoriasis. He also credits his nails to the diet, as they’re naturally growing quicker thanks to the increased levels of vitamins in his bloodstream. (3)
On top of that, he consumes lots of nuts to achieve his perfect tan. He eats almonds, peanuts, and cashews to provide nutrients to his skin, including vitamin E and selenium, both of which have been proven to boost collagen synthesis. (4)
And did I mention that this diet can help you lose weight? Well, it can. According to Men’s Health, consuming more than five servings a day of fruit and vegetables can lead to significant weight loss within just a few weeks. (5)
Overall, his food choices are extremely nutritious, and he’s managed to maintain an incredibly healthy body weight despite all those luxurious habits. (6)
In addition to fruits, vegetables, and nuts, Rob’s diet includes whole grains, legumes, and healthy fats. The result? Well, hopefully, you’ll look fantastic and feel fantastic, too. And who knows? Maybe one day, we’ll all be following a vegan lifestyle to avoid getting sick in the first place.
