Chris Pine is a hereditary actor for whom Star Trek became the first high-budget project. Before that he appeared in television series and romantic comedies.
Chris took the matter very seriously. The critics called him New Harrison Ford, while he was doing kick-boxing and other kinds of wrestling during the preparation for the Star Trek.
That was not easy for Chris: he likes to sleep long in the morning, wake up at noon and drink several cups of strong coffee before starting an active life. But after the film he should only support the body shape, and it’s not very difficult: Chris Pine likes playing basketball in the backyard of his own house.

Training of Chris Payne began in the morning, when he just woke up. In order to disperse his metabolism, he performed the morning superset. That training informed the body that it needed energy immediately after awakening. That helped to stay in shape, as it triggered fat burning processes right when he woke up.

While preparing for the roles, Chris Pine is very careful about the choice of carbohydrates for his diet. The basis of his food is protein (for example, he eats a lot of tuna, as well as beef steaks with vegetables). He can not eat as much pasta as I used to eat normally, his diet is high-calorie, but there are not so many fast carbohydrates in it.
Despite the high protein content in the diet, it is impossible to achieve high caloric content without carbohydrates. Besides, Chris drinks a lot of water.
