Dustin Milligan is all about balance and moderation. “I think [balanced living] is a combination of exercise and mindful eating as well as having fun… overall I’m in the zone for getting to a balanced life, [but] maintaining spirit and allowing to slip up sometimes is key,” said the actor.
As for his workout routine, the actor prefers exercising first thing in the morning. During periods where he’s not able to make it or ends up indulging in his food cravings, he doesn’t bombard himself with feelings of guilt. “If I don’t go to the gym, I’ll go skateboarding and running instead,” he explained. Normally, his fitness regimen includes cardio by doing “three-to-four day cycle”.
