Zac Efron‘s bulked-up body transformation deserves a reward, especially since it took such willpower to get it.

The star, who has been sporting a seriously ripped physique on the set of Baywatch, took to Twitter to share his diet secret.

“9 days of absolutely zero carbs & sugar. Only organic grass feed/free range protein and organic leafy greens. This leads too…” he wrote, before following up with another tweet showing off an array of dirty dishes from his day off. “#Cheatday! Devoured a steak, 4 side potatoes/veggies, macncheese, 3 desserts bread/butter, brick o cheese & caviar.”

And we can see why he worked up such an appetite given his intense workouts (lifting Sacha Baron Cohen included.)

And Efron wasn’t alone in his celebratory day of eating. His Baywatch co-star, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, also shared a photo of his cheat meal. “Strict diet while shooting, so about every 4 days we have to implement “DJ Heaven…#LateNightCarbUp #SteakAndWholeEggs #ChocolateChipBananaPancakes Destroying begins in 3…2….”he captioned a photo of (6!) pancakes and steak and eggs.

The film adaption of the hit ’90s television show was announced in August and has been filming in Miami. The High School Musical alum has said the movie would be “R-rated” and “badass.”

Next time these guys have a celebratory binge, we want in.

It also helps to be in relatively fantastic shape before you start the super shred. 🙂

DAMN!

Zac, only one question. Are you using ‘roids or supplements’? Because I happen to believe that your bulk and definition is more than just exercise and diet.

Gay as hell

I hope the rumors are true that his latest contract calls for mandatory drug tests. If not, this kid will join the 27 club for sure.

LOL OK so he’s already 28. Oops.

Hey, he looks great but that body didn’t come from diet — it’s steroids. Anyone who thinks otherwise is sadly mistaken.

Guest on

I’ve seen first hand that muscles like the two of these boast are chemically enhanced, I don’t care what anyone says. No amount of protein and lifting does this. Not normally anyay

Losing weight isn’t ever easy. My secret is one glass of wine in the evening and one banana in the morning. I’ve lost 31lbs so far that way, it’s all in the Loaded Gun Diet.

I think that’s natural. Can’t imagine his trainer, Aaron Williamson, being okay with anything that wasn’t natural JS…check out his facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/aaronvwilliamson?fref=ts

His muscles have muscles!

Livvie on

He needs to work on his legs…toothpicks.

Claude Meru on

It’s called HGH, it’s a “legal” but expensive drug enhancement

Mac Heath on

Every expert knows the truth behind the “diet”. Whether Efron ever owns up to the truth, well, that’s another thing. Professional bodybuilders, outside of Dorian Yates, never own up to the truth. Efron used steroids, and most likely, HGH. It’s pretty obvious.

Erik on

A natural bulk goes more like Bradley Cooper’s in American Sniper, where he gained muscle and fat. Zac has gotten to what looks like would be his natural potential before the age of 30 (upper body at least), while losing body fat/getting ripped. That doesn’t happen without chemical enhancement.

The toothpick legs clearly show that he’s all about shortcuts, and serve as further proof that he’s juicing.

Jay on

Seriously you are an idiot if you think Zacs transformation is natural! He lost about 5 percent BF while gaining lean muscle which is scientifically impossible to donate the same time especially in a matter of a few months. Want more proof? Look at a 2014 interview of zac and then the interviews for BayWatch movie. Why on earth has his voice gotten so deep? He’s already went through puberty his voice is drastically deeper. Another side effect of steroids. He also has the test face. A blocky angular face and he’s aged in the face rapidly in just two years. Facial aging at a rapid pace is a side effect of most steroids

However, a laugh track was still used to fill any gaps in audience reactions or missed punchlines.
The live format was requested by Ball herself, as she performed better
in the presence of an audience.[2]Richard Burton and Elizabeth
Taylor guest starred in the 1970 season opener,
in a storyline involving their famous diamond, which becomes stuck on Lucy’s finger.
Ball and Burton reportedly did not get along, as he found Ball’s rigid perfectionism
grating; he subsequently wrote about her in extremely unflattering
terms in his memoir.

Slotted construction does not use tape or glue, only can include cardboard with slots that fit with other pieces to form an object. This project not only included making the actual prototype but also forming a complete portfolio with a group. wigs

In the tape specifications you will see two different numbers. The bonding strength (or adhesion strength or adhesive power) to the surfaces and the tensile strength. The adhesion strength is the load that can withstand a piece of tape without being detached from the surface that we have applied it.
