Workout and Diet

He states, in regards to losing a ton of weight for Dallas Buyers Club:

“I ate a lot of fish, but only five ounces of it, and then a cup of vegetables,”

And continues to talk about his workout by stating:

“I started off doing a lot of exercise, burning 1,800 calories a day,” he said. “I had to do that for two weeks. My goal was to lose four pounds a week.

“So I was doing that for the first two weeks, lost eight pounds,” he continued. “And then I had a week where I had an injury and I couldn’t exercise, and I stayed on the same diet but I lost the same amount of weight. I was like oh, well hang on. Let me see if I can do this without exercise! And I lost the same amount of weight.” has done multiple interviews with McConaughey (or his trainer for certain movies) and they tell us that he likes to utilize interval training, circuit training, cardio, and jump rope within his programming.

He also shared with Men’s Health that he sometimes doesn’t have time to workout:

McConaughey has those days, too: no exercise time. He compensates with active bursts throughout the day.

“I’ll drop and give myself 20 pushups at intervals throughout the day. 9 a.m., bang out 20. Sitting in a boring meeting at 10:30. Bang out 20. I do that 10 times throughout the day, I’ve done 200. Or even mix it up with crunches, squats, whatever. Also, I have a 12-pound medicine ball. I’ll just think, Pick up the medicine ball and don’t put it down for 30 minutes. Try that once. You will have a workout, man.”



What’s your go-to type of drink when you’re just hanging out at home or with some friends, and why?

Something simple and not overly complicated. The goal is to not distract yourselves with making your cocktail. Start with bourbon neat, and end with bourbon rocks.

Beyond bourbon, then, what type of drink is your next choice? How or when do you enjoy it?

A good bottle of wine. I prefer a red, like a nice Cab. Caymus and Darioush are two that I enjoy.
