"In the morning, I usually have a full but healthy breakfast. It's usually scrambled eggs. I'll add soy, so it's not fatty. Everything is seasoned with peppers, onions, spinach and feta cheese. I don't eat fast food, although I do recognize that my favorite dish is roast beef nachos with two eggs on top. A dinner I love is a couple of chicken breasts with garlic, rice and vegetables.

I have a treadmill, a bicycle, and a complete weight set. I also have a bench press and all the time in the world right now, so I usually do pec exercises in the morning, and arm exercises in the afternoon. The next day I train my lower body and my back. I alternate.
