Channing Tatum Diet
What you eat is what you are! This holds true in Channing’s case as the major credit to how he looks goes to his diet. Channing’s diet is mainly high protein and low to medium intake of carbohydrates, with some fats to maintain the balance of hormones. His diet had meat and vegetables full of starch. Starch was taken post and prior to his workout for faster muscle recovery. Tatum reduced the intake of carbohydrates in order to lose weight in a short period of time, this way the body starts burning fat faster in lack of enough carbohydrates.
Channing under the guidance of his trainer starts with fight training in the morning for about for 2 hours. As he had a taxing routine in the first half of the day most of his carbohydrates were consumed in that first half when the body utilizes most of the energy for carrying out the everyday tasks.The other half of the day needs less energy so he had more of vegetables, some low fat dairy products, nuts and lean meat for proteins.
