At 43, Piolo Pascual is one more proof of the adage "men age like fine wine."
On Tuesday, April 14, Piolo uploaded on Instagram a photo taken when he was much younger.
He says in the caption, "Quarantine be like [emoji] #dayforever," to show how the enhanced community quarantine has caused him to trim down considerably.
In the old photo, a scrawny Piolo is seen sitting on a pavement, a far cry from the lean and wiry hunk he has become.
Through the years, Piolo has made a lifestyle of having a healthy diet and regular exercise.
Idolized by many for his chiseled physique, Piolo rarely flaunts the result of his hard work at the gym.
Once in a while, he posts topless photos of himself on Instagram, but in most of these pictures, his abs and chest are carefully hidden.
The last time he posted a topless photo of him was in December 2019.
Piolo achieved his current physique through triathlon and gym workouts.
And to stay fit and healthy, he told PEP.ph, "I drink a lot of water. I sleep a lot. Every time, I try to get at least six to eight hours of sleep."
As for his diet, it's anything goes. He explained, "I eat whenever I wanna eat.
"Sometimes I eat before sleeping which is not good, but the next day, I work out right away or sweat it off.
"I’d like to eat everything. For me, that’s the reward."
More importantly, Piolo said, know the importance of living clean.
"Stay away from vices, obviously. We only got one life to live.
"Enjoy life, but know that to be able to train, to be able to do things, you also have to realize that your body is just one."
Piolo is holed up at his resthouse in Batangas for the duration of the enhanced community quarantine.
