Ever singe he started dating Hilaria, the actor lost 30 pounds. “I gave up sugar. I do Pilates and spin, but I don’t do as much yoga as I’d like. When we’re shooting and I can’t work out, I just have to eat less. So I’m very conscious of that. But sugar was the real killer for me that was the problem”, he told Access Hollywood. Back in May 2011, the actor was diagnosed with diabetes
