Bradley Cooper's "Depressing" A-Team Diet

While women looked on with their jaws dropped and men were intensely jealous, nobody could deny that Bradley Cooper was in fantastic shape while filming "The A-Team". So while some women might look to his rail-thin girlfriend, Renee Zellwegger, for diet advice, guys are itching to know how they can get 8-packs like Mr. Cooper's before summer hits.

Truth be told, as anyone who has tried has found out, rock-hard abs aren't that hard to build. The hard part is actually seeing them under a layer of skin, fat and water. That part is all diet. Sorry - you can do as many crunches as you want, but unless you eat for your abs, nobody will know they're there. And the even harder truth is that you need to get your body fat percentage down ridiculously low in order for a 6-pack, nevermind an 8-pack to shine through. This is something Bradley Cooper knows all too well, and he still gets depressed thinking about it!

In order to get that envy-inspiring body, Cooper pretty much cut out carbs and had to drastically cut back on his calories. Being a big fan of carbs, sandwiches and eating in general, cooper had to resort to desperate measures to keep his hands off a panini. In an interview, Cooper confessed "When I was shooting The A-Team I couldn't eat anything, which was a nightmare because I love to eat". He went on to say "It was the worst but I would still make sandwiches. I would like cut a grape in half – this is so depressing – and I would put an almond inside, you know, to make a little sandwich. It was my big treat,". Wow - depressing indeed!

So guys, and ladies, before you embark on your journey to 6-pack land, keep in mind that it's a huge sacrifice and not a sustainable lifestyle at all. If you want to enjoy life and not cry every time you see anyone eating, please settle for a fit, healthy body and a flat stomach instead. We're not Hollywood actors here! A little fat (and a sandwich) never hurt anyone.
