Jared Leto Get's Back In Shape With Raw Food Diet

Every now and then an actor does something physically exacerbating to prepare for a role. Usually it’s along the lines of gain 10 pounds, loose 10 pounds etc. However, Jared Leto took it about 1,000 steps further by gaining a whopping 60 pounds to play John Lennon’s killer, Mark David Chapman, in the new movie Chapter 27. 

One report quotes Leto saying, “(I did it) eating everything you think you’re not supposed to – pizza, pasta, ice cream, but my little trick was I would take pints of chocolate Haagen Dazs and put them in the microwave and drink them. The sick thing is I would actually pour olive oil and soy sauce into the mixture as well – to get me bloated even more.”  GROSS!!!!!!

Leto, a loyal vegetarian, managed to put on pounds by piling on dairy and fat by doing stuff like “eating a large Dominoes pizza, every night for dinner.” Needless to say, he suffered some pretty major health problems, and at one point even ended up in a wheelchair. Eventually though, Leto took off the weight thanks to some good old fashion fruits and veggies. Leto says,  It took me about a year to recover,” adding that the strict vegetarian used health food to get back into shape. “Health food every day. I will eat anything that doesn’t have taste – like unsalted nuts, raw food and berries,” Jared said.

Ok, maybe he knocks raw food a little with the “doesn’t have taste” comment, but at least he recognizes the benefit of eating from the earth, and you gotta give the guy credit for staying veggie through it all.  So from all of us here at Ecorazzi: Jared, keep eating those fruits and veggies and maybe next time not so much on the whole gorging thing. Come on, gluttony is so 2007!
