Dominic’s dance training takes up a lot of his energy and he relies on his diet to provide him with all the necessary supplementation. Below is a breakdown of the diet plan he followed in 2015 –
- Breakfast – He began his morning by drinking a 16-ounce Starbucks iced sugar-free caramel macchiato with soy milk. According to him, the soy made it sweet in taste with less sugar and fat as compared to the cream. He also relied on Starbucks reduced-fat turkey-bacon and egg-white sandwich.
- Lunch – In the afternoon, his preferred meal of choice was chicken breast with sides of green beans, mac and cheese, and cornbread. He followed it up with a 16-ounce Jamba Juice Protein Berry Workout Smoothie.
- Dinner – For the last meal of the day, he opted for a chipotle chicken salad with rice, beans, grilled veggies, corn, cheese, sour cream, and lettuce. Also, he liked to keep himself replenished during rehearsals with Pineapple-Orange-Mango Mountain Dew Kickstart.
