Training for a superhero role takes intense discipline. For Aldis Hodge, who appears in the new DC movie Black Adam, that meant he had to eat every two hours to maintain his weight. With the intense film schedule that took place in Georgia, he'd meal prep and bring his food to set. But whatever you do, don't ask him how much he ate in macros—he wouldn't know.
"I don't know my macro count. I just eat, fam," Hodge says. Although he doesn't know the exact number of nutrients he consumes every day, Hodge says a physical transformation takes focus. "You've got to watch everything you eat," he states.
In a recent Men's Health video, Aldis Hodge broke down his eating habits while training for Black Adam, picking out the ideal meal that his character Hawkman would chow down on: to no surprise, it's a nut medley. "Sunflower seeds in there, some walnuts, almonds. Birds like nuts."
When he's not preparing for a physical role, Hodge says he breakfast isn't much of a priority for him. When he's training, however, Hodge eats about six to ten eggs in the morning, along with a bowl of oatmeal and blueberries.
For lunch, Hodge usually eats two chicken breasts and a handful of broccoli, carrots, and steamed white rice. As for dinner, it's bison time. "Bison is nice. It's lean, fantastic source of protein."
In addition to cooked foods, Hodge also takes supplements. His favourite protein supplement is Isopure. "It does the job. I don't feel heavy. I don't feel slow, sluggish, any of that."
