Celebrities are just like normal people. Except not at all. Instead of having to find time for the gym amid a hectic work schedule, looking amazing often is their work.
Nick Jonas has gone from boyband teeny-bopper to full-fledged hunk, but in case you’re wondering why you haven’t achieved the same results even though you’ve been fully committed to that 3-times-a-week gym routine, maybe this will clarify.
He recently told Details how he’s come to embody the fantasies of gay men from all corners of the internet:
Diet had a lot to do with it. I went from consuming about 3,000 calories a day to 4,200! Paleta, a food-delivery service, sent me three meals a day and snacks. It was an incredible way to know that I was getting what I need to build muscle and not have to think about it. Breakfast was usually an omelet with veggies and cashew cheese, a turkey-meat patty, and some fruit; lunch and dinner would be lean protein, veggies, and nuts; snacks consisted of things like snap peas with peanut sauce.
And that’s just food intake alone — already far more than the average person can keep up with.
Here’s the workout routine:
I was doing three sessions a day: one fight-training with Kingdom’s coach, Joe “Daddy” Stephenson, and two strength-building with Gregg. Each workout focused on a different region of the body—upper body, core, or legs—and we’d do a circuit of six different moves for one area. Lifting a lot of weights, really trying to break the muscles down. I got pretty Hulk-ish.
