What does it mean to have a “healthy” body?

As fans await Magic Mike 3, the third film of the stripper series (now in preproduction), lead actor Channing Tatum (“Mike”) has spoken up about what it takes to get his body to look like it does in the movie series.

On the Kelly Clarkson Show earlier this month, he said he hesitated to do a third movie because of the role’s taxing physical demands. “You have to starve yourself,” he said. “I don’t think when you’re that lean, it’s actually healthy.”

He went on to explain that it’s not just a matter of working out and eating well to get into that kind of shape. You have to work out twice a day and eat “completely right” at specific times during the day, he told Clarkson on the show. “Truly, I don’t know how people that work a 9-to-5 actually stay in shape, because it’s my full-time job and I can barely do it,” he said.
