Bryan Adams attributes his slim figure to his vegan diet in particular that he follows since he was 29. He does not follow a fixed fitness training routine. Rather he adheres to a strict raw vegan diet which starts with fruit juice and mixed fruit salad for breakfast.
Avocados and lemons are his companions on the sets and for tours. He carries a juicer while traveling so that he can have fresh fruit and vegetable juice, along with dried fruits and nuts. After a performance, he prefers to have green or herbal tea that keeps his metabolism rate quite high.
Bryan Adams is known to have employed cooks who can cater to his vegan requirements during tours because many countries like Spain, do not understand the concept of vegetarian food.
