Chadwick Boseman’s Black Panther diet

Even if you’re lucky enough to have all your meals prepared for you like an A-lister, you would still have to depart from your usual eating habits, which can be a difficult ask, especially if your job demands you yo-yo in size.

“It is tough; you have to be very disciplined day-in-day-out,” explains Boseman.

“I played Thurgood Marshall after playing Black Panther in Captain American: Civil War. I had to lose around 25lb after that for Marshall. And then after I had to bulk up again to play Black Panther. That was no joke and it was all about discipline and adjusting for what the goals were and having the discipline to stick to them. With Black Panther it’s obviously based around protein, complex carbs, healthy fats, fruit and veg, natural foods. Lots of greens.”

It’s that very simple nutrient prescription which yields very big dividends if you’re trying to build muscle the healthy way.

How Chad stays motivated

With the success of the movie, you can bet Boseman isn’t likely to easily give up the hard-won muscle he earned for Black Panther.

“He’s an endlessly interesting character. He has this strategic quality, and he’s always a step ahead of everyone. There’s a mystery to him that’s fascinating, he’s sort of known by everyone, but at the same time known by no one. He has this wit and wisdom to him. There’s this great paradox with him as well, him being a forward thinker, but also someone with a tremendous connection to a tradition and his lineage.”

“This role is an actor’s dream, really. It’s a tremendous opportunity to be part of them. And with Marvel, to know that these films are connected to something else and leading to further opportunities – there’s so much to explore. With Black Panther, it’s a character that has a wealth of information. There are so many possibilities with this character and with Wakanda and with the wider Marvel universe. I’m excited, in fact, very, very excited!”

 

 

What you can learn from that is finding your personal motivation to keep training is a vital part of the process – and that you can expect to enjoy several additional outings from Boseman in his famous suit.
