Tan sticks to the principle that you are what you eat and believes that the health condition of a person, as well as his appearance, depends 70% on the food he eats and 30% on exercises. That’s why he eats 6 hard boiled eggs for breakfast with only 2 yolks (due to cholesterol). Additionally, he drinks a glass of milk and sometimes adds avocado with berries to his breakfast. This is a good amount of protein and energy for the beginning of the day.
Apart from eggs, he eats chicken with rice, grilled vegetables, and fish soup during the day. The photographer admits that ice cream is his weakness and that’s why he sometimes eats it but only in the first half of the day. He also avoids coffee and tea but drinks a lot of water. He doesn’t smoke, doesn’t drink alcohol, and eats a salad made of fresh greens for dinner.
He spends about 90 minutes on exercise per day.
Tan does strength training 4 times a week, or at least 3 times if he is too busy. He spends no more than 30 minutes on this activity. Strength training is always followed by cardio training; however, due to a knee injury, he doesn’t jog but walks at a fast pace on a treadmill. Moreover, he tries to swim every day — he attends a swimming pool in the evenings and swims there for about an hour.
