Wahlberg has woken up, eaten breakfast and finished training - all before 5:30am. He even finds the time to get a prayer in. There's being a morning person, and then there's this. You can't argue with his dedication, though, and his routine fits perfectly around his film commitments.

You'll notice that Wahlberg likes to eat frequent, small meals. Meal frequency is a topic we have previously explored.
