Lutz said he did a modified version of the Paleo Diet to prepare for his role as Hercules. Though Kelly & Michael once reported that it is one of the worst diets, the actor took this recommendation from a book called Eat Right 4 Your Blood Type.
“It’s important to educate yourself on what is good for your body and how to utilize the energies in the food itself to help with your workout,” he said.
Neither Kelly nor Michael could think of their own blood types.

Kelly & Michael: Kellan Lutz Hercules Review
Kellan Lutz spent a commercial break taking photos with audience members, which he was still doing when the show came back on the air. He said that he is always surprised to find pictures of himself or dolls based on his characters when he goes online.
The Weather Channel named a recent storm Hercules, which Michael thought might be a promotion for Kellan’s upcoming movie. He did not feel the pressure of the role, and he was mentally prepared to take on a heroic figure from classic mythology.
He had nine days to get started preparing for the role, and he had to give up his candy weakness, gummi bears. Lutz said he was not afraid to ride a horse in the movie, even though he got thrown off once.
In a scene from the film, high-flying Hercules has an elaborately choreographed fight scene in which he takes down numerous opponents in front of a cheering stadium crowd. The Legend of Hercules is in theaters Friday, January 10 2014.
