Anthony Ramos keeps in shape by working out as regularly as he could and eating healthily. “It gets tough with the schedule sometimes, but I try to work out with my brother,” said the actor. “It’s also eating right and drinking water. We’ll make fish, vegetables, and smoothies.” The actor also eats the right kind of food, particularly before hitting the gym.
