Stop the presses — but not the bench presses, of course!
The British personal trainer who helped Jennifer Lawrence, Hugh Jackman and Michael Fassbender get in shape for 2014’s “X-Men: Days of Future Past” has revealed his six secrets for getting in shape, starting with No. 1 which is to . . . start.
“A lot of people,” David Kingsbury tells Healthista, “spend time trying to get as much information together as possible, which for the most part is putting off the inevitable act of exercising more and eating less.”
Then there’s No. 2: burn more calories than you consume (to which Boulevard says: duh). And steps 3, 4, 5 and 6? Duh, duh, duh, and duh.
“But what about ‘cheat’ days?,” Healthista asks. “We all experience cravings for naughty foods, a quick sweet treat to boost our mood on a Wednesday afternoon, it’s only human. But we have to appreciate that the more naughty foods we eat, the slower our progress will be.”
Kingsbury, it turns out, admits he indulges as much as he wants, which seems to deflate his entire argument about eating a healthy diet. So, we here on Boulevard’s health and fitness news desk are going to ignore all his advice, and concentrate on the greasy hamburgers he and Jackman are eating here:
