Mark Wahlberg Tried a Plant-Based Diet and Made it a Lifestyle

Mark Wahlberg’s diet changes depending on the role he gets for a film. If he’s got to be as thin as possible for a role, he’d switch to a liquid diet and change his fitness routine to include 200 rounds of jump rope a day. If he has to be out of shape, he’ll start the first few weeks by eating fried food and enjoying a few beers. However, during quarantine, he decided to try out a plant-based diet instead of eating seven to eight meals each day that consisted of mostly protein.

A New Lifestyle for Mark Wahlberg

While his plant-based diet was meant to be something that he tried out short-term, he ended up committing to it long-term. Mark Wahlberg originally planned to eat plant-based foods for a total of 12 days, but four months later, he found himself strongly committing to the diet, and he’d turned it into a lifestyle.

He was able to easily keep up with the new lifestyle since his chef, Lawrence Duran, was quarantining with him and his family. He’s been enjoying plant-based protein shakes, impossible meat burgers, and a bit of seafood on the weekends. His latest indulgent snack is hummus, which he’d never had before this change.

Making a Positive Change

Before his plant-based lifestyle, Wahlberg wasn’t getting enough rest as he was going to the gym two times a day for six to seven days a week. He would eat seven to eight meals a day, which included mostly protein. Overall, he wasn’t feeling good. He decided to do a bone broth fast first before switching to plant-based food for 12 days — which then turned to four months.

Mark Wahlberg mentions that he feels great after this positive lifestyle change and that he’s enjoying the good that he’s eating. He also adds that he’s definitely seen a change in his body.
