Colin’s Diet

“I don’t put the same level of energy into healthy living as I did into unhealthy living. I put an enormous amount of energy into destruction of my body and if I put the same amount into treating my body in a positive way that too would end up being a sickness."

“But I eat really well, Drink loads of green tea, and take loads of vitamins”. The actor said in an interview.



Colin was motivated by one of his favorite shows on television ‘The Biggest Loser.’ When people that size can lose weight and get healthy again, it is possible for anyone," he told. “I ate lots of greens and chicken, I didn’t order dessert for four months. I stayed off the sugar and got myself on the treadmill. It’s just discipline and not that hard when you apply the science to it." Colin reveals.


For a role of a photo journalist who returns home from a dangerous assignment Collin followed a dangerous diet. He lost 441bs ( by eating two tins of tuna a day, had drinks full of caffeine to boost his energy levels. He confesses that the diet was not healthy. “It was kind of depressing,” he said.


“For a short space of time, it was grand. It was just calorie counting wasn't a particularly healthy way of doing it.”Putting the weight back on wasn’t quite as difficult, however. “I just ate like a pig,” said Colin.
