Exercise regimen: I work out at the gym at least three times a week, and as part of rehab from an injury, I make sure to incorporate stretching and foam rolling into each session. I used to play badminton and water polo, and also swam competitively at school level. I also enjoy playing touch rugby at recreational level but I have had to curtail most of these because of injury.

Diet: I usually eat lean meat with lots of vegetables and some starchy carbohydrates. I make sure that my nutrition is based on essential micronutrients, protein, essential fats, but no excess carbs. I avoid anything deep-fried or sugary, and I do not consume any alcohol. I have too many favourite foods - nasi briyani, Cantonese-style roast meats, steak, mutton soup.

Exercise regimen: I train on weights and machines at the gym at least once a week, and I do cardio exercises such as swimming and jogging for half an hour, twice a week. I don't play any sports unless my friends ask me to, but I am competitive when I do play. Instead, I run half-marathons once or twice a year.

Diet: I do not keep a strict or regimented diet. I eat the usual Singaporean food, but I ask for less noodles and rice for my meals. Three days a week, I have salads for lunch. I am a foodie, so I eat just about any food. However, my favourite food is still minced meat noodles with additional mushrooms.
