Twenty-five-year old Joseph Marco believes it's not enough to work out, you have to observe a balanced diet.
In an interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) last Saturday, July 14, at the SM Megamall Fashion Hall, he shared some tips for a healthy physique.
Joseph goes to the gym twice a week and does 250 push-ups and crunches every night. He also believes in the importance of a balanced diet.
“Ano talaga, diet more than work out," he said.
“I eat, like, healthy food most of the time and I allow myself one cheat meal a day,” he added.
CHEAT DAY. For people dieting to lose weight, a “cheat day” should not be an excuse to pig out. What’s the use of working out if you’ll spend a whole day binge eating?
Joseph explained, “Kasi yung ibang tao they believe na dapat may cheat day ka. Ngayon, yung cheat day na yun talagang kakainin mo lahat. But yun nga, parang masasayang lang yung lahat ng pinaghirapan mo for a week kasi nga nag-baboy ka.”
HEALTHY TIP. He gave this advice: Know your body. Know when you are most hungry and indulge in food that you like. On days and times that you are less hungry, you must eat something healthy.
“Ako, ang ginagawa ko, since yung pinakamalakas ko na appetite is sa gabi, I indulge myself pag gabi.
“And then yung next meal ko mas healthy, like fruits, ganun. Parang bina-balance ko lang siya, so parang I don’t gain that much weight,” he said.
