According men’s health, Cavill works hard to maintain a healthy and fit body. Not only is he 6 feet tall, but he has a “superhuman physique” on and off screen. How is it?

When it comes to eating habits, Cavill makes her choices a part of her life. He says: “I think I’m finding my rhythm now in more of a lifestyle. For example, I can do this workout and it will make me look a certain way. I’m going to make sure my food is good, but I don’t feel like I’m on a diet all the time” (via men’s health).

We are not exaggerating when we say that the star consumes a lot of protein. That means scrambled eggs with a side of steak and an oatmeal protein shake for breakfast. His favorite drink? Rosemary water.

Cavill’s first lunch – yeah, you heard right! – consists of even more protein, something like chicken curry with jasmine rice and an apple. An example of the star’s second lunch? Roasted chicken and potatoes with curry sauce. We didn’t know Superman was a huge fan of curry, did we?

Dinner time means buffalo steak, which provides fewer calories than fattier cuts of meat and is packed with natural creatine. The side for the last meal of the day is brown rice pasta. And after finishing dinner, Cavill switches to a protein shake for “supper.”

No one’s eating routine is complete without a cheat day once in a while, and Cavill is no exception. Deep pizza is a favorite choice, but Cavill’s philosophy about cheat days is to not worry too much about what he’s consuming on those given dates. He explains, “I can have three cheat days in a row if I want to, then bow out, be good for a while and come back at a certain point. You know where your baseline is.” Sounds like a good plan to us!
