This is exactly how James McAvoy got totally ripped
He got A LOT of attention.
When James McAvoy bulked up for his most recent role, it's safe to to say that everyone absolutely swooned.
Everyone on the Internet loved the actor's new look, and we have to say, we liked it too.
And now, he has finally revealed just how he bulked up.
To clear up any rumours that he ate "6,000 calories a day," James took to Instagram to set the record straight.
"Seeing a lot of articles saying that I ate 6000 calories a day to get bigger and leaner. Just to set the record straight in case anyone decides to give this a go. I have never done this.
"The quote is taken from an interview I did for a movie called Split, not the one I'm on right now which is called Glass. The interview was done at the beginning of the year.
"'I ate 6000 calories a day' is inaccurate,was meant as a joke and is being widely used out of context. The truth is that this time around I gained more muscle weight and got leaner by not counting a single calorie.
"In fact we didn't count a single calorie. We counted macros...I think probably a healthier way of tracking intake.
"6000 a day might work well for somebody but I've got zero experience or info on that being the case. Guys and girls in the gym and out...this IS NOT how I got the results I got. Please don't copy.
"Enjoy your workouts or non workouts. Stay healthy and eat well to enjoy if you can!"
So there you have it... don't believe everything you read!
