    Andrew Garfield’s birthplace is the Golden State. His mother is British, therefore when Garfield was 3 years old, he and his family returned to that country. He got his start in the business while still in high school and went on to study acting at London’s Central School of Speech & Drama. In 2005, Garfield made his first TV and stage appearances. In 2010, with the publication of The Social Network and Never Let Me Go, he gained widespread recognition. After starring in 2012’s The Amazing Spider-Man and its sequel, Garfield went on to feature in a slew of other films, including Silence, for which he was nominated for an Academy Award. The Worldwide Orphans Foundation (WWO) has appointed Garfield as an Ambassador. Many tens of thousands of people follow him online. Garfield stands around 5 feet, 9 inches tall and typically weighs around 165 pounds.



    Left to his own devices, Garfield doesn’t have great eating habits, but he’s also one of the lucky few who burn through the calories no matter where they come from. He changes his diet based on the role he has coming up. Despite being lean, he lost some weight for Never Let Me Go and a lot of weight (40 lbs.) for Si-lence, but to play Spider-Man, he wanted to build mus-cle rather than look waifish. To accomplish this, he ate a lot of protein as well as carbs. His trainer counted macros to keep him on track, and he supplemented with whey protein and glutamine. Garfield also cut way back on junk food, something he normally does not do. Water was also high on the list of things to consume.

    Fuel Up

    Clean Eating

    For lunch, Garfield would have lean protein and veg-gies to build his strength and keep his energy up.

    Not All Sacrifice
