Henry Cavill dieting was also not easy, even “horrible”! He has to control his energeries from 5000 to just 2500 per day which he has to cut off half of the calories.

“a horrible eating phase … where we really, really leaned down. It was exhausting.

“They didn’t force me to give anything up, they just cut my calories right down to 2,500 [a day]. And keep in mind, only a few months ago I’d been up to 5,000. So it was a big drop.”
