Exercise regimen: I do dead lifts, bench presses and squats at the gym four to five times a week. Cardio exercises have always been a staple for me since I was a runner representing the SAF commandos, and I now alternate between interval training and fast 5km runs throughout the week on a daily basis.

Diet: I eat six eggs daily for breakfast. Most of my other meals consist of chicken breast, and I do my best to restrict my carbohydrate intake. I do have a "cheat meal" after church every Sunday consisting of egg prata, kueh chap and pastries, but I avoid fried food such as fries and burgers.

Exercise regimen: I do daily interval running, with five sets of 1km each. I go to the gym six times a week, doing mainly bicep curls, lunges, tricep pulldowns and squats. On alternate days in the gym, I do sled pushing with about 120kg, and I do 10km runs on weekends.

Diet: Every morning, I eat hot home-cooked oatmeal, served with fresh fruit such as berries and bananas. For the other meals, my mains are steamed fish, vegetables and tofu. My favourite indulgences are chocolates and pastries, but I avoid fast food.
