Jamie Foxx is a man who requires little introduction. He’s been in some of the biggest films and television shows from the past three decades, including In Living Color, Django Unchained, and Ray. With recent action roles and an upcoming Marvel debut in Spider-Man: No Way Home, people probably wonder how the 53-year-old Foxx stays in shape for all the action, drama and comedy roles he takes on. In a new video, our latest Men’s Health cover star broke down his diet, workout routine, and even gave out some advice for anyone looking to stay healthy.
Foxx doesn’t adhere to any fad diets or fasts. “I’m not laying any blame, but some of these Hollywood diets where you eat a basket of air and drink a cup of wind? Don’t do that shit,” he says. “You need food.”
Breakfast is Foxx’s biggest meal of the day. He has egg whites, turkey sausage, a slice of toast, and orange juice. Then for lunch, he goes all in on the protein. His meals tend to include brussels sprouts, bacon, salmon, and rice. Dinner often consists of steak and vegetables.
In his daily life, Foxx says he snacks a lot. He loves blackberries and other fruits. And one of his favorite less-healthy snacks is salt and vinegar chips. Still, he knows all those extra calories come with a cost. “If I snack a lot, that means I’ve got to go run a lot or workout a lot,” Foxx says.
When he’s not sticking to his rigid, protein-heavy regimen and snacking on blackberries, Foxx does a cheat day where he goes “all out.” He loves the “Sophia Pizza,” a white cheese pizza with sausage on it. “I could eat that thing like…man,” he says. He also goes for crab legs.
For his workouts, Foxx says at his age, he doesn’t need a trainer. He says for anyone 50 and over who has years of experience in fitness, you have all the information you need to eat right and exercise right. And he has some advice for other men his age who regularly workout and want to stay fit. Instead of utilizing a personal trainer’s regimen, Foxx has his own benchmarks. He works out first thing in the morning, and shoots for 20 pull-ups per day. “And if you can get 25 dips, 50 push ups, 100 sit-ups, if you can get 20 to 30 back extensions, you’re done,” he says.
For final words of wisdom, Foxx has an important message: Moderation, exercise and healthy habits. “When you look better, you feel better. So when you eat right you feel right, and that’s what I try to do,” he says.
