the actor revealed the work needed to transform his body into something werewolf-worthy started the day after he finished filming the first movie.
"As soon as I finished filming 'Twilight,' I knew I had to get to work right away; there could be no waiting involved. The day I finished 'Twilight,' I came home and started bulking up. For 'New Moon,' I'm 30 pounds heavier than I was in 'Twilight,'"
he recently told Interview Magazine.
"I was in the gym five days a week, two hours a day. At one point, I was going seven days straight. I had put on a lot of weight, and then I started losing it drastically, so I was worried. It turned out I was overworking myself," he said. "My trainer told me that I couldn't break a sweat, because I was burning more calories than I was putting on."
The 17-year-old said one of his biggest challenges he faced while training was something most people work hard to curtail.
"The hardest thing for me was the eating. At one point I had to shove as much food in my body as possible to pack on calories. My trainer wanted me to do six meals a day and not go two hours without eating. If I would cheat on eating one day, I could tell, I'd drop a few pounds,"
