American Gods star Ricky Whittle covers Men’s Fitness

Men’s Fitness

The former Hollyoaks actor has really hit the big time stateside.

You have to believe in yourself. I believed in myself when I moved to the States six years ago, believed that’s where I deserved to be.

35-year-old Ricky tells Men’s Fitness about the difficult lifestyle changes he made while honing his body to play Shadow Moon in the hit US show.

I’d eat all day. Food became a chore. I didn’t eat because I was hungry, I ate because it was time. At the start it was great — pizza, sweets, burgers — but once you have to cut out all the crap and carbs it becomes tough. You’re eating dry chicken, brown rice and broccoli, five, six time a day. It’s real mental discipline.
