What’s Marvin Agustin’s secret to being healthy as he turns 40?
Marvin Agustin knows he is not getting any younger, so he decided to make changes in his lifestyle for him to stay healthy and happy through the years.
The 39-year-old actor-entrepreneur is looking for a diet and lifestyle that he can sustain, especially for someone like him who is, aside from being an actor, also a foodie and a self-proclaimed tennis addict. This he expressed in his Instagram post on Monday, Jan.14.
As a tennis player, he said that his body has to be light. But since he is an actor too, he has to be fit “almost most of the time,” so that when a role demands a certain look, it would be easy to adjust.
So what is his secret? He shared he practices intermittent fasting, where he eats only within an eight-hour window, then fast for 16 hours.
“It has been giving me the right balance and focus plus [I] can eat anything hahaha [that’s] the best part,” he explained.
“How about you, what kind of lifestyle… works for you to stay healthy and mentally sharp?” he asked his followers. “How can you stay fit but at the same time you do not deprive yourself of delicious food?”
Some fans spoke about their own lifestyle changes, such as @marjh29 who shared that she jogs every day for 30 minutes, and visits the gym thrice a week.
Meanwhile, @sweetleiz said that she too is into intermittent fasting, and lost 18 kilograms in seven months, making her hit her ideal weight.
Another follower, @doraemonsiako, said that he was forced to change his diet in 2015 due to high blood pressure. By cutting down sugar and sugary drinks, he noticed that his belly went thin and he felt light.
“In my opinion, what really works for you could be your best healthy diet,” the netizen said. JB
