Robert Pattinson once ate only POTATOES for two weeks to lose weight

Robert Pattinson revealed he once ate only potatoes for two weeks to ‘cleanse’ his body in a revealing interview calling the body patterns ‘insidious and addictive’.

The Batman star, 36, told ES Magazine that she tried “every fad but consistency” in pursuit of the perfect physique, while detailing the spartan diet she followed to “detoxify” her body.

He said: ‘I once ate nothing but potatoes for two weeks, like a detox. Just boiled potatoes and Himalayan pink salt. Apparently it’s a cleanse…you definitely lose weight.’

He added: ‘Even if you’re just watching your calorie intake, it’s extraordinarily addictive – and you don’t realize how insidious it is until it’s too late.’

Pattinson said he’s “basically tried every fad you can imagine, everything but consistency,” and said he once tried the keto diet – a low-carb, high-fat lifestyle.

He said, ‘I was like, ‘Oh, is there a diet where you just eat charcuterie boards and cheese all the time?’ But I didn’t know you can’t have beer, as that completely defeats the purpose.’

In March, the Twilight star revealed some of his techniques for getting in shape to play Bruce Wayne/Batman in The Batman,

The British actor opened up about some of his fitness secrets for getting into Batman shape in a new interview with People.

The heartthrob revealed that one of his techniques was to limit his sips of water to make his physique stand out even more.

“I had about three months before the movie started, and then you’re working out before and after work all the time,” revealed Pattinson.

“You just cut and cut and cut before some shirtless scenes, and you’re counting sips of water,” the actor added.

The technique of counting sips of water is used in amateur wrestling to reduce weight and by bodybuilders before a big show.

A Muscle & Fitness article recommends that, on show day, a bodybuilder should only take “little sips” of water before prejudging, a technique Pattinson mirrored in his Batman look.

Though he only had a few months to get in shape, he revealed that ‘shame is my biggest motivator, 100%.’

When Pattinson wasn’t shirtless in the film, he often wore his iconic Batman costume, revealing that it helped him connect even more with the character.

‘It’s funny because you read the script and spend a lot of time trying to figure out, ‘How can I play this character who does this kind of audacious act? Pattinson started.

“And the closer I got to filming, I got more and more paranoid – you know, it looks ridiculous when you’re sitting at home in a T-shirt – and then you put it on. It has an elemental power to it,’ he added.

He continued that while wearing the suit, ‘People react to you differently, the crew reacts differently. Your whole world suddenly changes.

And then you kind of catch that glimpse, the subtle reflection or a shadow on the ground and you realize the character is so much bigger than you are. It’s like wearing a crown or something,’ clarified Pattinson.
