In an interview with Men’s Health, the actor got candid about his eating habits, revealing his typical daily diet.
He said: “My go-to foods are oatmeal in the morning. To make it palatable, I use loads of dried fruits, nuts, and dates. At lunch and dinner, I use non-fat cottage cheese instead of mayo or salad dressing — on a salad, some cottage cheese and balsamic vinegar. One of my favorites is to get avocado and stick in the cottage cheese and you get kind of a guacamole.” He added: “Lean meats, tuna, and chicken are my staple protein sources. I eat a lot of yogurt as well.”
