Here’s Zac Efron’s diet plan.

Here is a picture of Zach’s post on twitter about his dietary restrictions.

Zac Efron is a hard gainer. That means he has a high metabolism and he is able to stay lean without worrying about his diet.                                                                                                                                                                                                   For people that are hard gainers, here are a few guidelines for you:

  1. Consume a lot of protein shake
  2. Workout when your stomach is full

Zac Efron eats a lot. But he keeps it healthy. He eats mainly fruits, veggies, protein (0.6-1.0 gram of protein for every pound in body weight). He consumes 3000-4000 calories a day.

Typical Food Plan:

  • Lean Protein
  1. Chicken
  2. Turkey Breast
  3. Pork Loin
  4. Egg Whites
  5. Fish
  6. Steak
  • Whole Grain Carbs
  1. Brown Rice
  2. Quinoa
  3. Oats
  • Healthy Fats
  1. Nuts
  2. Avocados
  3. Seeds
  • High Fibre Food
  1. Apples
  2. Pears
  3. Berries
  4. Vegetables

If you, yourself is a hard gainer, you might want to have carbs 30 minutes before starting your workout in the morning. Also immediately after your workout. Some carbs that are good are leafy greens. You can eat them all throughout the day because it doesn’t effect your blood sugar. Eat 6-8 meals per day. By doing so, this will keep your metabolism going and you are going to have a little chance to over eat. You should focus on protein diet. Lastly, you can use supplements. Green tea extract has shown to burn fat much better than exercise.
