Apart from his workout routine, the actor nourishes his body with good food. Although he doesn’t have any strict diet regimen, he makes sure he eats well most of the time. Though in an interview, he admitted that he didn’t always have the best eating habits. So he worked hard to change his lifestyle. “The first was to stop drinking Diet Coke because, I kid you not, I used to drink five or six a day. I was addicted,” said the actor.
For his role in the TV series Boss, however, the actor had to diet. “You’re meant to eat deep-dish pizza in Chicago, and I mostly eat chicken or broccoli or eggs,” he shared. Overall, he is mindful of her food choices and is pretty active, too. “I try to stop eating when I’m full, not eat a lot of carbs, load up on protein and vegetables, and I try to work out every day,” Groff said.
