Gajeshwaran Rajendran, an undergrad and part-time financial consultant shares how to stay buff even with a high metabolism.
Height: 1.75m Weight: 68kg
Exercise regimen: I exercise thrice a week – one session of cardio exercise and two sessions of weight training, which consist of push and pull exercises and lower body strengthening. I also enjoy playing soccer and basketball, and engage in outdoor activities such as kayaking and rock climbing.
Diet: I take six regular portion meals daily to counter high metabolism and take double portions of carbohydrates in comparison to my protein intake. I avoid sugary drinks and allow myself only cheese cakes, milkshakes and ice cream once a week. I also prefer snacks such as walnut bars and peanut butter to chips or fried food.
