No doubt, Emilia Clarke is going to be in the best shape of her life when Terminator: Genesis hits theaters in July, but until then, the actress is paying a hefty price.

Looking stunning on the cover of InStyle U.K., the brunette beauty opens up about the grueling diet she's been forced to follow in order to prep for the badass role, and it's safe to say she's making some serious sacrifices during mealtime.

"I've been spending all day, every day in weapons training," the Game of Thrones stunner told the mag. "I've been shooting guns, weightlifting, kickboxing and generally kicking a lot of ass. On top of that, I have not been allowed to eat anything that might taste good at all."

Well, the first part sounds fun. The second, not so much.

And apparently, Clarke spied a delicious spread during the interview which caused her to further comment on all the yummy food she can't put in her belly.

"Everything on these plates looks amazing but, heartbreakingly I'm not allowed to eat any of it," she said. "Not one thing on this table. Except a cup of tea. One cup of tea. No sugar. No cream."

Grueling workouts and a super-intense diet? We can't wait to see Clarke stun in her role as Sarah Connor on the silver screen.

In addition to dishing on her diet, the 26-year-old thesp also opened up to the publication about her dating life, admitting, "People keep asking me who I'm dating right now and the truth is...wait for [it]...no one."

She added: "And that's OK. I'm figuring out a lot of stuff right now. I think as a woman it's in our nature to nurture someone else. Sometimes at the expense of ourselves."

Safe to say she'll have plenty more suitors when she sizzles on the big screen this summer.
