What is Peter Jackson’s weight loss secret? Introducing the Skull Island Diet

What is Peter Jackson’s weight loss secret? The image most of us have of the Lord of the Rings filmmaker is a corpulent, bespectacled figure reminiscent of one of his characters from The Hobbit.

In fact, movie industry insiders and Jackson fans began noticing a new Peter Jackson nearly a year ago. But only now, with all the hype surrounding the soon-to-be-released King Kong, has the general public woken up to the lean, show-free version of the man and begun to wonder about Peter Jackson’s diet.

And it’s not hard to see why there’s so much interest. Peter Jackson’s weight loss has been impressive: he has lost about 70 pounds (32 kilograms).

So what is the secret to your diet?
Was it the South Beach diet? The caveman diet? The Atkins diet?

Obesitycures.com did some research and found that Jackson was not following any of the popular fad diets. The real secret to Peter Jackson’s weight loss phenomenon has been dubbed the “Skull Island Diet,” after King Kong’s fictional home island.

Jackson, taken aback by all the attention his new look is getting, insists that a lifestyle change, rather than a diet, is responsible for his weight loss.

“I just got tired of being overweight and out of shape so I changed my diet from burgers to yogurt and muesli and it seems to work,” Jackson told the Daily Telegraph.
Jackson also reportedly didn’t follow a specific exercise program, but he has spoken several times about his grueling 21-hour-a-day work schedule on the set of King Kong, which no doubt accounted for some of the weight loss.

Jackson said he was cutting during the day and shooting at night for months, surviving on three hours of sleep. “I thought he was some kind of Superman, but he knocked me out.”

And what about Jackson’s new show-free status? No, unfortunately losing weight does not improve eyesight. Jackson underwent laser eye surgery, explaining that he had “got tired of being outside in the rain and dust on his glasses.”
