  3. Don't eat much but always have energy food.
  4. Last but not least, try these recipes for sure. I know you people, are going to love it.

Food is a huge passion of mine, and because I want to eat whatever I want, I run every morning, and then I do weights a few times a week. It's just how I can balance eating pancakes in the morning, a big burger for lunch, and then a fat steak and cheesecake at night.
