Jeremy Irvine - Jeremy Irvine's tuna diet

Jeremy Irvine lost 28lbs by eating a can of tuna a day.

The British actor had to lose a significant amount of weight to play Eric Lomax, a British Army officer who was sent to a Japanese prisoner-of-war camp in 1942, in the drama 'The Railway Man' and admits his extreme weight loss plan gave him terrible hunger-induced nightmares.

He told Britain's In Style magazine: ''It's called the 'no-more-than-one-can-of-tuna-a-day-diet.' I lost almost two stone (28lbs). You're so hungry the whole time you lose your mind a bit. I had no energy and kept having really mad dreams, which alarmed my parents slightly. We had a dietician on set to keep an eye on me.

''For someone of my generation, it's impossible to relate to what prisoners of war went through. I owed it to Eric to make it look as realistic as possible.''

However, the handsome 24-year-old star more than makes up for it when he returns to his London hometown, where he regularly binges on junk food with his housemate.

Jeremy said: ''When I am in town, my flatmate and I like to do the man version of a dinner party. We cook crappy junk food or whatever you can make in a microwave and call it a 'do'.''
