Mark Wahlberg Explains Why He’s Going All-In On A Plant-Based Diet

“I normally never fast,” the former rapper and current A-lister remarks in the midst of reading a comment on a particular Instagram photo that asks about his fasting habits. “In this particular shot, I was eating eight meals a day.” Some of his staples during this crazy fitness and diet regimen?

“I normally never fast,” the former rapper and current A-lister remarks in the midst of reading a comment on a particular Instagram photo that asks about his fasting habits. “In this particular shot, I was eating eight meals a day.” Some of his staples during this crazy fitness and diet regimen? The usual meats that one would think of consuming—steak, chicken, pork, and an occasional piece of fish thrown in the mix.

As for what Marky Mark is doing right now to get his food intake right? He’s removed all meat from his diet and started to eat only plant-based products. This started when he found himself not feeling so well after filming his new Netflix film Spenser Confidential, out now.

“I did a bone broth fast and ate just vegetables,” he explains in the video. “I’ve been eating plant-based [products] for about three weeks now, and I gotta tell you—I’m feeling really good.”

Granted, the term “plant-based” is still loosely defined, and could sometimes be interchanged with “vegan,” but it sounds like Wahlberg is enjoying his new outlook on life.

Among the benefits Wahlberg finds from this going on this plant-based diet? He’s not having to struggle in order to recover from his intense 4AM workouts, and he’s finding less inflammation in his body in general. From the looks of his previous photos, it would be pretty hard to have to guess exactly where in his body the actor is inflamed.
