Despite his slimming down for a role, it sounds like Matthew McConaughey is spending quite a bit of time in the kitchen.

He told Us Weekly that hes doing a lot of cooking for wife Camila Alves while the pair anxiously await baby No. 3.

Theres a Brazilian dish that her mother does, so were having it more often than were used to, he told the magazine. That involves a lot of chicken, a lot of cheese and things like that, which Im not having, but she is.

Instead, McConaughey said hes sticking to foods that are high in protein and low in carbohydrates to prepare for his role in The Dallas Buyers Club. The film is based on the life of Ron Woodroof, a Texas man who was diagnosed with AIDS 1986.

Im playing a guy who was sick and would have loved to have been healthier but wasnt, he said. For me, its more of a mental thing than a physical thing. Ill get down to the weight I need to get to. Im on my way, and its what I need to do for the job.
