Torres says 'no mas' to junk food

by Frank Curreri | source:

Curreri: Give readers an idea of a typical day of eating for you.
Torres: I wake up, go to the gym. I might have a cup of coffee. I get to the gym and train. Right after that I’ll have a protein shake with half juice (orange or apple) and half water.
Then I might take a nap, chill a little bit, then have a big lunch: Chicken breast, brown rice, I might have a salad with spinach, carrots, tomatoes, some vinegar and oil. Then I’ll chill a little bit, go back to the gym and do the same thing. I got rid of McDonald’s, soda pop and stuff like that.

Curreri: How long have you been on this new diet?
Torres: Actually, maybe the last six weeks. I haven’t had any Mexican food during this training camp and I miss it so much, I’m not going to lie.

Curreri: You have been such a voracious eater your entire career. What sparked this sudden change?
Torres: You know, I’m getting older; I’m 31 now and it’s getting harder to make the weight (135 pounds). I also want to make sure that I have my best performances, and I’m around a bunch of guys that only eat healthy food, and whenever we’d go out to eat they would order such healthy food and I was eating whatever I wanted. I started feeling kind of weird doing that so I switched over to the brown rice, chicken breast, salads and eating healthy. It hasn’t been that hard. I’m a mentally strong and focused person and I can make myself do whatever I want to.
