He recently dropped to less than 150 pounds for a new movie "The Gambler" -- but less than two months later, Mark Wahlberg is back to his buff self, telling People magazine he's back up to 176 pounds.
In fact, People reported that he lost 60 pounds for the role and has gained back nearly 40 pounds.
"It's a lot easier to put it on than it is to lose it," he told People of his new/old look. "I make sure I take all the right steps, take all the right nutrition, all the right exercise, being monitored by doctors. I'm trying to do it in the safest way possible."
But the buff "Transformers" actor is not done yet, he wants to put on a little more weight.
"I like to walk around at 190," he said.
Wahlberg joked in January that he was tempted to steal some food from his little daughter.
"I was literally going to rob my almost 4-year-old daughter for her little blueberry muffin. It's getting bad," he said.
