Matt Lauria keeps in top shape by following an intense workout routine. Apart from his fitness regimen, he also makes sure his body gets the nutrition it needs through healthy eating. That’s why the actor has since adopted a vegan diet. When he did, he instantly noticed a big difference on how he feels.
“The first difference that I noticed right away was that I never felt bloated after a meal again. Even when I eat an incredible amount of food, it never slows me down,” said the actor. “So many nutritionists are saying now that fiber is the key, and eating this diet I never have to worry about it, because it’s pretty much all I eat. There are a lot of grains, beans, fruits, and vegetables.”
