The Terry Crews Diet is probably the biggest reason for his extreme fitness in his role as Hale Caesar in TheExpendables 2. He's also very fit in his small role in Bridesmaids. (See Better Body After 50 for 50 year old bodybuilder secrets).
His diet has more of an effect on his physique than does his bodybuilding routine. And now for the part you probably don't want to hear. Terry Crews doesn't spend much time on his diet.
He won't restrict what he eats. However, he does eat clean most of the time, but allows himself the occasional sweets.
His focus may be more portion control than anything else. Similar to the Sylvester Stallone Diet, he just doesn't eat too much of any one thing. He might have one cookie but not several.
Reportedly, he carries with him a tub of whey protein powder in case he can't find something good to eat. The additional protein instead of junk probably has more impact on his diet than anything else.

And if you haven't seen The Expendables 2 starring Sylvester Stallone and an all-star cast of action film heavyweights, you really should see it. Not only did Stallone star in the movie, he also co-wrote and directed the film.
The film is action packed. Crews plays one of the elite mercenaries, whose mission is to overthrow a Latin American dictator. It's reminiscent of some of the action films of the 1980s and 1990s.
Terry Crews Workout
Terry Crews bodybuilding routine is a split program where he works one body part each day for 4 days and dedicates one day to fat burning cardio.
It's funny. When we're young, we have no idea how great it is to actually be young. No matter what an older person tells us, we just don't appreciate or accept what getting older means.
As we age, the "all too real" changes show up and before we realize it, our youthfulness is gone. We see changes like low energy, loss of memory, weight gain, loss of muscularity, decreased immune function, lost sex drive, and a decrease in our general feeling of well being all seemingly inevitable results of getting old.
A major reason for the negative effects of aging, is the gradual loss of human growth hormone (HGH). Sadly, HGH starts dropping off from the time we turn 20 and by the age of 40, you see pronounced negative effects of aging. See 40andFit.com
But what if I told you this "natural" loss of Human Growth Hormone could be prevented or even reversed? What if there were nutritional supplements and a few lifestyle changes that could actually boost your own normal production of HGH? Well guess what. There are, and I'm going to share with you a comprehensive plan based on the latest scientific studies that show how you can boost your HGH naturally and safely.
