"Marky Mark" Wahlberg Ditches Diet After Filming

It's quite funny how one can easily predict that after an extended period of strict dieting and deprivation, people often just ditch their diets all together. There may indeed be exceptions to the rule, but this is not the case with actor and former Calvin Klein underwear model Mark Wahlberg. After two long years of strict dieting and training for his latest film "The Fighter", Wahlberg is throwing in the dieting towel - at least for now.

Once known best for his 6-pack abs, Wahlberg has managed to maintain a fit physique for all these years with a devotion and passion for fitness. Now 39, one could argue that this actor and father looks just as good as he did back then. In fact, he has just completed shooting his latest film "the Fighter" in which he plays a boxer, a role which he prepared for by training for a staggering two years, five days a week, 30 minutes a session.

Now that it's all over, Mark admits that his "new regimen consists of a bottle of red wine and a lot of food" and that he is just enjoying himself at this point. Regarding his wife's opinion on his new diet, Wahlberg said ‘She’s like, “If you want to hold on to me, you gotta do something”.’ Can it really be that bad? Considering Mark's love of boxing, he will most likely continue to balance his now relaxed caloric intake with regular exercise, although perhaps not as strictly as before, saying "‘Ultimately if I can train for another six months and look like a world class fighter that would be great.’ I guess only time will tell!
