Bodybuilder and fitness model Aseel Soueid has eaten and worked out like Wolverine, Black Adam, Peacemaker and Captain America on his YouTube channel. In his latest video, he takes on another superhero routine, sampling the diet that actor Robert Pattinson used while getting in shape to play the Caped Crusader in The Batman.
The meal plan comprises six clean meals each day, starting with a breakfast of oatmeal, banana, a hard-boiled egg, with a glass of orange juice and a cup of green tea. The second meal is even simpler: a whole tin of tuna, and four rice cakes topped with peanut butter.
“Quite a bro meal here,” says Soueid. “I used to eat this religiously, especially as a college student. This is as cheap as it gets if you need a quick ‘healthy’ snack, some carbs and fats, that’s all it is… And it’s got a lot of volume so it’s definitely going to fill you up. Just a tip, don’t go overboard on the peanut butter, because it’s lots of calories.”
Next up is the pre-workout meal, and it’s another bro classic: skinless chicken breast, baked potato and mixed vegetables. It’s a little on the plain side for Soueid, who comments that even when you’re at your leanest, there are ways to add flavor to a meal without upping the calories, but he acknowledges that this mix of carbs and protein will fill you up.
Meal number four is a bowl of cottage cheese and mixed fruit with oatmeal crackers. The fifth is Soueid’s favorite: sirloin steak with white rice and more mixed vegetables
The sixth and final meal of the day is a smoothie made with protein powder, a banana, blueberries, spinach, and unsweetened almond milk. This brings his total food intake for the day up to 2,797 calories, consisting of 329 grams of carbs, 77 grams of fat, and 204 grams of protein.
“This actually makes a lot of sense considering [Pattinson] is like 6’1, around 165 pounds before he started filming The Batman,” says Soueid. “This is right around maintenance, maybe a little bit above because he was trying to built muscle but also stay lean… You don’t have to be in a huge calorie surplus to build muscle. Stick to around maintenance while you’re getting stronger in the gym, with a high protein diet, and you’re going to be just fine.”
