Nico Tortorella takes care of his body by following a healthy diet plan. In an interview, he got candid about the diets he has tried and the kind of eating habits he sticks to. “I’ve always had different diet kicks. I grew up in a big Italian family, kind of grew up a chubby kid, then went vegan in fifth grade. I did that for three years, then I went raw in high school,” said the actor.
“It’s always been extreme, but in the last few years I’ve gotten into balance. I don’t restrict myself like I used to. I’m mostly Paleo, but if I’m at a restaurant and I want something, I’m not not going to eat it.”
