Apart from his rigorous workout routine, Jesse Lee Soffer stays in great shape by watching what he eats. However, his fitness regimen also requires him lots of fuel so he really doesn’t stop himself from eating what he wants. He just makes minor restrictions at times, such as going easy on carbs. “I try to stay away from carbs, but it can get cold in Chicago, and some sort of fettuccine Bolognese is right up my alley. That’s why I try to get to the gym as much as possible!” said the actor.
