Tom was eating 4000 calories a day to get the size on in the time he had. The majority of the calories came from chicken for protein and rice for his carbs. On top of this Tom says he ate junk food as well since he had to put the weight on any way possible. This is not generally recommended as a great way to get bigger, but he did what he needed to do. He uses protein shakes as well, specifically to help him build muscle mass for his roles in Bronson and Warrior.  

Tom Hardy style

Drink as much milk as you can. Get yourself some whole milk and drink glasses in between meals, as many as you can. Drink your calories whenever possible, it’s so much easier. Make shakes with ice-cream, milk, peanut butter. Eat pizza as often as you can. Just make sure you are always eating something or drinking Milk.



  1. Hi Tom, I saw you in This Means War, & I thought, who is that incredibly hot man? I'll be sure to see your future movies in the theatre, my way of supporting you. :)

  2. Tom Hardy initially with his personal trainer/ ex-marine Patrick V Monroe following a method of working out which he refers to as 'Signalling'. This is simple working out little (not to failure) but often, little bursts so to speak. I recently put this to the test (cannot lift heavy due to back issues) and safe to say its working for me, for more info be so kind to check out my body transformation over 6 months, 4 month Cut & 2 months building muscle using bodyweight resistance and this approach to exercising to build muscle, best wishes ---- watch?v=1R9lCqN0PEk
