Teo Tze Kwang, a freelance tutor, shres how you can still enjoy local food like nasi briyani but maintain a six-pack.
Height: 1.83m Weight: 72g
Exercise regimen: I work out at the gym at least three times a week, and as part of rehab from an injury, I make sure to incorporate stretching and foam rolling into each session. I used to play badminton and water polo, and also swam competitively at school level. I also enjoy playing touch rugby at recreational level but I have had to curtail most of these because of injury.
Diet: I usually eat lean meat with lots of vegetables and some starchy carbohydrates. I make sure that my nutrition is based on essential micronutrients, protein, essential fats, but no excess carbs. I avoid anything deep-fried or sugary, and I do not consume any alcohol. I have too many favourite foods – nasi briyani, Cantonese-style roast meats, steak, mutton soup.
