Fans of Ryan Seacrest may already know that he is a foodie. The popular entertainer describes himself as mostly being a vegan, but he does not follow that diet religiously―for example, a nice filet mignon with onions and mushrooms can get him to break his usual habits. Aside from meat, he also loves mashed potatoes with a ton of gravy, garlic and butter.
Of course, Ryan Seacrest is well aware that such indulgences put his healthy physique at risk. He was overweight growing up, but as an adult maintains a strict exercise regimen so that he can eat his favorite foods without packing on the pounds.
It is not only about food, however; Ryan Seacrest notes that as he became more disciplined and lost weight, he began to feel more confident about himself in general. According to Forbes, this new sense of empowerment, it seems, helped to pave the way for his career in the entertainment industry.
In that sense, it has been a great success; by age 43, Ryan Seacrest has had quite a storied career. He began in radio, with the popular program “On Air with Ryan,” which received national syndication. Later he got his big break in TV with the incredibly popular reality show “American Idol,” and he is now co-host (with Kelly Ripa) of the morning talk show “Live with Kelly and Ryan.” He has also started Ryan Seacrest Distinction, a fashion line for men, and Polished, a line of men’s skincare products.
As for his exercise regimen, Ryan Seacrest says that he tries to work out every day and thinks of his sessions as if they were business meetings (meaning that he cannot ignore them). He admits that this can be hard, given his busy schedule, but he finds little ways to make it work; he has even been known to grab a few minutes of exercise when his shows go to commercial breaks.
Beyond that, Ryan Seacrest (@ryanseacrest) stays fit by choosing vegetable juices, almonds and other healthy snacks. He says that moderation is the key, however, and so he is allowed to “cheat” every so often.
