Tyler Hoechlin’s Diet
Hoechlin looks like the Man of Steel and he eats like it too. He follows a ketogenic diet which burns fat rather than glucose (sugar). It is high in healthy fats, contains a moderate amount of protein, and is low in carbs. As part of his low-carb diet, he has cut way back on alcohol. He also engages in intermittent fasting and often does not eat before noon. Hoechlin is still human and likes his coffee drinks, but he has replaced it with coffee protein shake that satisfies and makes him feel energized and good about himself.
- Low Carbs 15% 15%
- MediumProtein 25% 25%
- High Fat 75% 75%
Hoechlin switched to a ketogenic diet a few years back, and although it took some getting used to, he says it has really made a difference in the way he looks and feels.
When Hoechlin is looking to get cut, he won’t eat until 1 or 2 in the afternoon. When he is in a bulking phase, he’ll eat when he first gets up, but it’s still healthy, often a low-carb keto bar.
