Since the script demands the sailors to be thin and weak, the participating actors have to follow 500 calories a day diet might with a limit to 600 calories per day.
Chris exposed that he had a cheat meal before coming to the show, but it is only once a week he was allowed to do. Fortunately, Chris has rest of the cast that is following the same diet routine too, so he has good company and support in this regard.
