Pratt, to achieve his dream body took professional help from personal trainer Duffy Gaver. He further gives credit to his nutritionist Phil
Goglia who helped him re-design his diet plan. Phil Golia, author of Up the Heat, restricted his caloric intake up to 4000 calories a day.
She instructed him to stay hydrated and for that, he has to drink lots and lots of water every day. For him, drinking that much of water was the worst part of this journey, as he was peeing all day!
