LOS ANGELES: Actor Mark Wahlberg went through the pain of eating 10 meals a day to gain a beefy look for his new film Pain And Gain.
The 41-year-old plays bodybuilder Daniel Lugo in the upcoming film.
He followed a 24-hour plan and even woke up at various times throughout the night to eat his food fix and drink his muscle-building shakes, reports eonline.com.
“I was eating 10 meals a day and drinking mass gainers. I was drinking my own. I created this line of supplements with (retail chain) GNC. It was a lot of work. A lot of getting up at 2:00 am to eat another meal and I was still full from the meal at 10 o’clock,” he said.
But does he like the bulky look?
“You know, I like being able to change for parts, both physically and preparing mentally. It was a good time,” he said.
