Photos and Video from Men’s Fitness – Alex O’Loughlin

New photos from the magazine and a video from ENews. Wowsa!!!!!

Photography by: Jim Wright

These days, O’Loughlin makes sure to drink about two gallons of water a day (which explains the jug he carries). Breakfast consists of a half-cup of oatmeal, a banana, a few almonds, and a splash of 2% reduced-fat milk.  Lunch and dinner include a balanced combo of protein, veggies, and carbs”and he has a simple paradigm for portion control. If you look at your open hand, the size of your palm is the amount of protein you should take”about two-thirds of a chicken breast. Your splayed four fingers equal the amount of space you should have for vegetables. And the triangular area between your index finger and thumb is for carbohydrates”brown rice or whole-meal pasta. The key is to have a very low-sodium diet and understand that 80% of [the process] happens in the kitchen, not in the gym. When it comes to workouts, though, the actor is hardly a slouch. I like to circuit train, he says. If you do one exercise after another without breaking, you bump your metabolic rate up to such a place that you create what’s called a ˜furnace effect”your metabolism is firing at such a high rate that you can go to sleep and you’ll burn calories through the night. That’s my ideal place to be.

    1. Thanks Carrie for the info….great interview. Now, if you could just tell me where you saw the pix of Alex & Amber? Were they in a publication or on a website? I’d heard that Amber starred with Alex in Three Rivers, unfortunately, that show wasn’t televised in Western Canada (nor was Moonlight). Our loss!! Thanks again.

  5. Thanks Tiffany for another great update re Alex being in Men’s Fitness Magazine. I’m wondering where I can get a copy. I live in Western Canada and the August issue here has someone else on the cover too. Also, am still trying to find the website that has the interview and photos that Carrie and Sandra were talking about. Can anyone help? Please. Thanks a lot. Love that Alex :love: :heart:

  6. WOW!! what a great looking guy with his tattoos. His idea for fitness is great also. I looked for the magazine also but did not find him on the cover. I also forgot to check the month, I’ll check again. I can see why Alex broke it off with with Amber. Her in L.A. and him in Hawaii does not work so good. He will find who he is looking for someday. Meanwhile he does have his son. Look forward to seeing you in H5O this fall Alex. Love ya Alex,you roc.

  7. I take it that Alex is dating around since he had to think about the question “any NEW signifacant other” Reply was “ah, no, not really” So he’s not being private since we all were aware of Amber, and apparently he finds time to see other girls so I wonder what happened between him and Amber. From the looks of the good-bye pictures it wasn’t her idea. Upsets me cause she seemed like a better match then Holly for him. Also he says he wants to raise a family in his new house in Hawaii, wonder with who? :angel:

    1. I’m guessing he may be talking about raising his son there, and he can do that alone.

  8. Where can I get this magazine? I have looked in the stores and the August issue has Stephen Moyer on it. I mean he’s okay. but he is not Alex. not by a long shot. Is it only available in Australia? Do I have the wrong magazine? I need help! Thanks!

  9. Yes, in the interview he did say there was only him and his dog Dusty, no significant other. But you know Alex likes to keep his personal life to himself.
    Or perhaps they decided that a long term relationship with many miles distance between the two of them wouldn’t work. The tender peck Alex gave Amber when she was crying, was perhaps a feel for her sadness, but no strings attached.
    So he’s moved into his new house in Hawaii, which I think was a sweetener to get him to do H50 by CBS. At first I don’t think he was that keen. I know in an interview he said he was very enthusiatic to do the role. Re-hashing old shows don’t often work, and lets face it his career needed a hit like H50 loved ML and 3R’s but they both got cancelled, through whatever reason, and certainly not by ant fault of Alex.

    1. Hi Sandra. I’m new to the internet and there are so many websites concerning Alex – it really is confusing. Can you tell me where I can find the interview that you mentioned? I think Alex is an amazing actor and the fact he is gorgeous doesn’t hurt either. Thanks for any information you can give me.

  10. well. I guess I was right when I belived Alex was leaving Amber and not just leaving California at the airport last December. She just looked to upset to be saying good bye until..and he looked to relaxed in pictures later taken in the airport. In one of his video intervews he answeres “not really” when asked if there was a “suffeient other”. I hurt for her…
