Welsh legend and actor Anthony Hopkins, best known for playing the role as Hannibal Lecter in “Silence of the Lambs,” continues to be one of Hollywood’s most popular celebrities. Other box office films by Anthony Hopkins are The Lion in Winter, Magic, The Elephant Man, 84 Charing Cross Road, Dracula, Legends of the Fall, The Remains of the Day, Amistad, Nixon, and Fracture. Even at the age of 73, he still looks much younger than his age and much slimmer and healthier too, as he lost 80 pounds. What are his secrets? Here, he shares how he achieved sucha massive weight loss success.
Anthony shares, “I got tired of being heavy, so I went on a really good regume of eating healthy and exercising for an hour a day. I’m not a nutty, macrobiotic kind of guy, but I enjoy being alive.”
Anthony Hopkins’ diet involves the classic low sugar diet otherwise referred to as the low GI diet. This kind of diet plan doesn’t consume any bread, biscuits or cookies, and cakes. Anthony actually loves eating bread and can even eat it the entire day. But he claims that this is one of the reasons why people put on a lot of weight.
He also added, “My wife’s no dictator, but she said I must stick to a regimen. So I’m in the gym six days a week, I power walk, live on 800 calories a day. No pasta. No seconds. A sandwich occasionally. Now I’m a health nut. I can’t get back into my wardrobe. I gave it all away to some mission. I tried tailoring the pants but they look ridiculous.”
For Anthony Hopkins’ exercise routine, he hits the gym 6 days a week. His routine actually includes power walking which is a simple activity but is regarded as very effective. After Anthony has been relatively inactive in a few years, he doesn’t have enough strength or flexibility either to do a wide range of exercise routine. However, he does power walking as it is very natural to do. He may either do this using a treadmill with maximum incline or perhaps do it within their neighbourhood.
