Jonah Hill's weight loss journey has been far from linear, but he's indeed come a long way since the early days of his career.
We searched the web high and low for the Hollywood actor's old interviews to find his secret to shedding all those extra pounds.
And after hours of researching, we've covered all there is to know for you.
Jonah Hill's Weight Loss Workout Routine
In his interviews, Jonah Hill never really mentioned anything about following a structured cutting workout plan. Instead, he got into fitness with running, a bit like a client of mine. Running is an easy start for staying fit, especially for busy folks like actors.
A pal nudged Jonah to start small - just 10 push-ups a day, and he worked up to 100. He added jiu-jitsu, hitting the mats five times a week, and boxing at Gotham Gym.
Committed to fitness, Hill dedicated over 8 hours weekly to a varied routine of running, boxing, and resistance training.
"I found that people like rules, and I love to tell people what to do. It's not rocket science when it comes to weight loss. It's about eating a little less and moving a little bit more."
- Bob Harper, Personal Trainer
Here’s what his weekly workout looks like.
Sample Weekly Workout Schedule

Before starting his weight loss journey, the person he first went to for advice was his co-actor and good friend Channing Tatum.

Hill asked him if eating less and going to a trainer will help him get in better shape. Tatum, of course, agreed, telling him that “it’s the simplest thing in the entire world.”
His Workout And Life Principles
Jonah Hill's decision to lose weight wasn't for vanity reasons or even for acting roles. It's a deeper, more meaningful motivation that I've seen lead to more sustainable and rewarding results.

Jonah Hill's Weight Loss Diet Plan
In 2011, Jonah Hill turned heads with a 40-pound weight loss, thanks to lifestyle and diet changes—reminds me of a client who also had to tweak their diet. Ditching high-calorie stuff like pizza for healthier picks like sushi wasn't easy, but it was crucial for the weight drop.
This change wasn't just about eating better; it highlighted the risks of yo-yo dieting, a common trap in showbiz where actors often swing in weight for roles.
After bulking up again for "War Dogs," Jonah got back on track with a nutritionist and a food journal, pinpointing diet tweaks to shed pounds.
The actor ate
- a lot of lean protein
- low-fat dairy
- whole grains
He steered clear of
- junk food
- processed food
- refined food
However, Hill admits that he still drinks beer. The Hollywood comedian wishes he could give it up, though, because he sees that he’s thinner without it.

What Supplements Does Jonah Take?
Jonah Hill doesn't advocate for any supplements, but the ones listed below can effectively fill some nutritional gaps for individuals with similar diets trying to speed up their weight loss.
Multivitamin: You can never go wrong with a multivitamin. Just make sure to buy from a reputable brand that manufactures high-quality health products.
Fish oil: If you’re not a fan of sushi, fish oil supplements are a good alternative because it’s rich in anti-inflammatory omega-3s.
Protein: A protein supplement will help fill you up when you’re on a caloric deficit and aid in building muscle.
