John Travolta hates dieting and lost 12 kilograms for his 2003 movie Basic with a workout of exercise and sex.

The PULP FICTION star loves eating and refuses to cut back on his favourite foods.

He says, "I don't like diets. I don't believe in restricting the life force. You get into trouble when you stop people from eating or having sex."

Travolta explains how he shed the weight to play a Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) agent alongside Samuel L Jackson and Giovanni Ribisi, in Basic: "Double workouts balance out the eating. So just eat, have sex an exercise."
