After first getting the role, Heughan went into boot-camp mode and was training two or three times a day. Part of those workouts included dumbbell moves and his overall training included a clean diet.
“During shooting my weight did vary a little, because it is quite difficult when you are on location, and good nutrition can be hard to find,” Heughan told Men’s Journal. “I started taking supplements, and I started eating protein bars as they were easy to carry around. In the last few months I went Paleo, as my character Jamie gets captured and he is in prison for a short while. I wanted to lean out a bit more, and I did find that that did help, though it was quite difficult at first to get into that regime.”
