He’s getting in shape for his upcoming wedding, but it sounds like Chris Pratt is taking his new diet to an extreme level. Now, friends are worried about the Parks and Recreation alum, 39, a source spilled to In Touch.
“This is a lot of pressure on his heart and seems way too dramatic and risky for a guy who’s approaching 40 and carrying a lot of extra baggage already,” an insider exclusively revealed to In Touch.
Not only does the Minnesota native want to look good for his fiancé, Katherine Schwarzenegger, 29, but he also wants to show off his new physique to her family, which includes her parents, Arnold Schwarzenegger, 71, and Maria Shriver, 63. “He’s doing it for his own pride as well as to impress Katherine and her in-laws, who are all health nuts and a little surprised he lets himself get so out of shape,” the source continued.
However, his friends and family don’t want him to go overboard with his new lifestyle. “Everyone would rather see him lose weight the healthy and natural way, instead of going to these extremes.”
Recently, the Hollywood hunk has let himself go because he loves trying new restaurants with his leading lady. “He’s just realized there’s more to life than going to the gym,” a pal revealed to Life & Style in November 2018.
This isn’t the first time that Chris has had to get serious about his weight, either. In 2013, Chris scored the role of Peter Quill a.k.a Star-Lord in the Marvel movie Guardians of the Galaxy and had to lose 60 pounds to play him. “I’ve been fat for the last eight years,” he confessed at the time. “I loved eating food, drinking beer and having fun with my life.”
Dr. Philip Goglia, the founder of Performance Fitness Concepts, helped Chris become a superhero by having him eat 4,000 healthy calories a day to get those fantastic abs. “I actually lost weight by eating more food,” the A-lister revealed.
Well, we hope that Chris can find a good balance when it comes to eating and exercising.
