The 34-year-old, who looked absolutely ripped in the film, said in a new interview this week that he trained so hard and took diuretics that he became depressed.

‘It’s just not feasible’: Zac Efron has revealed he fell into a deep depression while training for his 2017 film Baywatch

He told Men’s Health: “That Baywatch look, I don’t know if it’s really achievable.”

“There’s just too little water in the skin. Like, it’s fake; it looks like CGI.’

Zac said he took Lasix, a diuretic, to help him achieve his ripped look in the film, which ultimately took a toll on his mental health.

What are diuretics?

– Diuretics help increase the body’s urine output

– They help eliminate salt and fluids from the body

– The drug is often used to treat high blood pressure

– Sometimes the drug is used for bodybuilding purposes

– Always consult a doctor before taking diuretics

He added: “I started developing insomnia and fell into a pretty bad depression for a long time. Something about this experience burned me.

“I had a lot of trouble refocusing. In the end, they assigned too many diuretics for too long, and that messed something up.

Zac stars on the cover of Men’s Health and shows off his ripped physique, but says he’s happier now with a higher body fat percentage.

Zac previously told the publication in 2020 that he skipped carbs to lose weight for Baywatch.

“When I shot Baywatch, I was carb-free for about six months,” he said.

“I almost lost my mind. You need it. I still can’t figure out how this carb and protein diet is the exact opposite of what a trainer ever taught me.

According to Healthline, Zac trained with the help of a personal trainer and did a series of grueling workouts to get in top shape for Baywatch.

‘Efron’s Baywatch movie training program involved a constantly evolving approach, involving full body workouts, two-day splits, three-day splits, power training, strength training, stability and balance, lifeguard training, hiking, biking, obstacle course training, and more,” said her trainer Patrick Murphy.

“Put simply, he ended up being shredded.”
