Actor Tom Ellis has been playing the devil himself on the supernatural drama Lucifer since 2016, but the last couple of years have seen him get even more ripped for the role, thanks to a suitably hellish workout routine and diet. In honor of the fifth season of Lucifer dropping on Netflix, YouTuber Aseel Soueid recently decided to spend 24 hours following the meal plan that Tom Ellis used to help him get into devilishly good shape for the role.
The first meal of the day is a hearty one: a 5-egg omelet with an extra 5 egg whites, filled with mushrooms, onions and peppers. This is swiftly followed by the second meal/snack, 2 servings of almonds.
The third meal of the day is a pretty classic pre-workout meal: boneless, 8 ounces of cooked skinless chicken breast with brown rice and salad. After getting pumped as hell in the gym, it’s time for meal number 4, a post-workout protein smoothie, with whey protein and frozen strawberries. The recipe for this one ends up creating a lot, and with the day’s meals adding up, Soueid has to split it into a few sittings before he can finish it.
Meal number 5 is another “bro meal” standard: chicken breast, brown rice, and steamed broccoli. Soueid shovels it down with the help of some hot sauce, and then
“I’m just about done with chicken breast for the day,” he says. “For me personally, I need a lot of variety in my diet when it comes to my protein sources, like I’ll have lean ground beef for one meal, some chicken breast for the next, I just cannot do over 10 ounces of chicken breast in one day, and I’ve already had like 16.”

The sixth and final meal is another whey protein shake, bringing Soueid’s total food intake for the day up to 2,056 calories. That’s 114 grams of carbs, 78 grams of fat, and a whopping 231 grams of protein.
Upon completing the challenge, Souid’s main takeaway from the Lucifer diet is that it’s… actually kind of boring.
“You don’t have to eat nothing but chicken breast, broccoli, salad, brown rice and almonds just to get in shape,” he says. “You just need to make sure you dial in your total calorie intake goal for the day, along with the specific macronutrients that your individual body needs.”
