Benedict Cumberbatch lost a lot of weight for the role of Doctor Strange and the thin detective Sherlock Holmes. For Sherlock, the actor slimmed down with the help of the 5:2 intermittent fasting plan, where you eat 500 calories or fewer for two days a week.
In a new interview with CinemaBlend, Cumberbatch detailed his transformative experience of getting into the right shape for this character.
“I lost about a stone and a half [21 pounds], and it was through the usual methods of dieting, but also some extreme exercise. I was very fit,” Cumberbatch said. He continued that while he lost the weight in a healthy way, he still had to “shred” everything he could in order to get down to the desired weight and “shrinkwrap [his] body mass around muscle.” This led to a pretty torrid experience.
“It’s horrible, but it’s basically a description for self-digestion, you also have to strip away muscle. And that’s a very nasty thing to be doing. And you get very disoriented, you feel dehydrated, you feel hungry all the time,” Cumberbatch said.
