Taylor Lautner has joked about the embarrassing burger diet he ended up on to help achieve his perfect Twilight six-pack.
Speaking on Oprah Winfrey's talk show in America, Taylor revealed he had to eat a huge amount of protein to cope with the exercise he was doing.
"It required a lot of time in the gym so I basically ate a lot, as much as I could," he said.
He laughed: "If I had meetings I'd have to carry around this little cooler with beef patties, seriously! All of a sudden I'd be talking to someone and then I'd have to be like, 'Yeah - hold on one second - I'll just eat a beef patty'."
But the young star eventually realised he was taking his fitness regime too far.
"At one point I was in the gym almost three hours, that's when I realised I was over-working myself and had to cut back. It ended up being about an hour a day five days a week," he explained.
In front of Oprah's over-excited audience, Taylor also talked to the chat show host about the Beatle-mania level of attention he receives.
"It's really unlike anything else, obviously it's amazing. It's almost like you live in two different worlds, you go into that world and then you completely vanish and you go back to your regular life," he said.
