Hot Bods

Jeremy Lim, 22 Undergraduate

Height: 1.74m Weight: 76kg

Exercise regimen: I hit the gym five days a week, targetingdifferent muscle groups during each session. I also include abs work-outs, such as sit-ups, and a short cardio on the treadmill after each weight-training session two or three times a week.

Diet: I prepare my own meals and avoid food that are fried and too oily. I also keep away from sugared drinks. I enjoy eating out on certain days. My diet consists of both complex and simple carbs, such as wholemeal bread, brown rice, white rice, noodles and oatmeal. As for protein and other minerals, I consume egg whites with two yolks a day, steamed chicken breast, vegetables, broccoli, salmon and fruits. For supplementary products, I take protein powder or protein bars after my work-out and branched-chain amino acids before I start my cardio. I also consume fish oil and multi-vitamins for essential minerals and vitamins that my body needs.

Height: 1.64m Weight: 55kg

Exercise regimen: I do weight training four times a week targeting different muscle groups (legs, chest, back/biceps, shoulder/triceps) during each session . I also do abs work-outs (such as planks and leg raises) and cardio (stair-master) after each weight-training session.

Diet: As I've reached a fat-loss plateau after eight months of low-carb diet, I've decided to reintroduce carbs and increase my calorie intake in the hope of boosting my metabolism. My diet now consists of wholemeal bread, brown rice, oatmeal, egg whites and salmon.
