What Extreme Dieting Can do

1:43:00 AM

It is on the news. Hollywood actor Christian Bale reportedly lost 60 lbs just for his role in the movie, The Machinist, in 2004. He was on a strict diet of apple and tuna a day. I wonder if it means he consumed only tuna and apple in a day or in every meal?

Based on Caloriecounter.com, a medium-sized apple has 72 calories while a cup of solid or chunk tuna has 139 calories only. Given this, I guess he consumed the duo in every meal. ..

Hence he was under a 600-calorie diet when he lost that big amount of weight. It was just a guess.

According to his interview, he was more calm when he lost weight but he does not recommend to other to do it. And he's not doing it again to lose weight for this next movie.

I think 600-calorie diet is too much. How about 800-calorie diet?
