Zac Efron Still Considers Himself the Kid From 'High School Musical'

Zac Efron has never look more ripped than on the May 2016 issue of Men’s Fitness magazine.

The 28-year-old Baywatch star opened up to the glossy about how he stays in shape – and stays grounded. Check it:

On his image: “I step back and look at myself and I still want to kick that guy’s ass sometimes. Like, f-ck that guy. He’s done some kind of cool things with some cool people—he did that one thing [Neighbors] that was funny—but, I mean, he’s still just that fucking kid from [High School Musical].”

On his body: “I want to be lean. When I put on a T-shirt, I don’t want people to go, ‘Oh, that guy’s a bodybuilder.’”

On his diet: “After a while your body stops craving junk food and you look forward to these meals. There’s this trigger that happens after two or three weeks of dieting and eating healthy food, where your body switches its primary energy source from burning mainly carbohydrates to burning fat. And when it switches over, all your cravings change. You go, ‘Holy cow, I want kale and vinaigrette shredded with beets and a little bit of sweet potato!’”
