Parks and Recreation‘s Andy Dwyer may have lost 50 pounds in a single month after going beer-less, but this has no basis in reality whatsoever. However, Andy’s real life counterpart Chris Pratt famously shed 60 pounds in six months for Guardians of the Galaxy.
He posted the above picture with the caption “six months no beer,” but I happen to know how many virgins he sacrificed to attain such a godly physique. In reality, Pratt replaced all those liquid carbs with enough water to sink the Titanic, according to Inquisitr:
The actor was paired up by Marvel with nutritionist Phil Goglia, the author of the book, Turn Up the Heat: Unlock the Fat Burning Power of Your Metabolism. As part of his revamped diet, Chris Pratt hiked his daily intake to 4,000 calories and had to drink one ounce of water for every pound that he weighed.
There’s 128 ounces to a gallon, which means I’d be taking in around a gallon and a quarter every day. Pratt, who weighed around 300 pounds when he auditioned for Marvel, drank over two gallons a day at the start. That’s a lot of peeing.
Makes you wonder whether or not all this “water” from the Jurassic World trailer is a practical effect.
