Tom Ellis got SHREDDED to play Lucifer.
To be fair, he started off … not-so-shredded .. and then came out of nowhere with a ripped six pack.
Which means, naturally, we researched exactly how he did it.
In our original Tom Ellis Workout Routine and Diet Plan article we actually break down the training style he utilized and even the full diet plan and nutrition as well.
We’ll expand on that diet plan and share some of the quotes we found from the research here.
And, as far as his training you can find that on the full article, but his training was extremely close to the style we utilize inside our Superhuman System.
He was also a big case study for my book Superhuman Secrets being that he was able to make such a quick and effective transformation that so many of our members are looking to recreate in their own way.
Okay, but before we get too crazy, let’s talk about some of the things that are going to be relevant to the full meal plan I share below.
In an interview with The New Potato Ellis talked about his IDEAL food day:
From start to finish what would be your ideal food day?
My ideal food day would start with poached eggs, bacon and baked beans, which is very British of me. Then I’d probably go for some pancakes and maple syrup, if I was feeling dirty, or cinnamon French toast with whipped cream. Lunch would be a hot salt beef sandwich with pickles and mustard on rye. They make a great one at the Selfridges Deli, and it’s the only reason I’ll go there because I hate shopping and crowds. Then for dinner, it would be the orecchiette from Osteria Mozza in Los Angeles. It’s my favorite dish anywhere.
Now this doesn’t mean this is his ideal DIETARY food day, but it does give you some insight into his indulgences.
He also shared some information that is much more relevant when it comes to shredding the fat and training:
Are you health-oriented? What are your diet and workout routines like?
Unfortunately, I love beer, candy, and bread – preferably late at night. But having to fit into my rather slender suits on Lucifer forces me to abstain from my natural eating habits, so I do try to stay in some sort of basic shape by cutting beer and working out with my trainer. These days, I do more high-intensity workouts rather than lifting heavy weights as my body is starting to creak a bit, and I’ve also started to do more yoga. I’m much better when I’m filming, but during hiatus, I let myself eat and drink what I want. Even when I’m working, though, I will usually let myself have a couple of cheat days on the weekend. If I’m working towards a photoshoot or a scene that requires the dreaded ‘shirt off,’ I cut out carbs and alcohol completely and force myself to drink 4 liters of water a day.
I made sure to bold the things that need to stand out the most:
- Cutting Beer
- Couple of Cheat Days
- 4 Liters of Water Per Day
