A fan of coffee and fizzy drinks? This may not be the choice for you if want to stay in shape and achieve a sculpted physique, at least according to one of Israel's top male models and actors.
Aside from being a national heartthrob, Omer Dror, 28, also works in marketing at a high-tech company and is a real estate consultant. He is in a relationship with actress Naya Federman.
Despite the busy schedule, Dror manages to stay in the best shape of his life thanks to a host of rules, which he shared with Ynet's sister outlet Menta, providing insight on how he maintains a healthy lifestyle, what he prioritizes, and what motivates him.
What role does exercise play in your life?
"I go on an hour and a half walk at least four times a week, 4-5 times a week I do only weight training at the gym, and once a week I play tennis or matkot (Israeli paddle ball) professionally."
What exercise do you force yourself to do because 'you have to'?
"Long runs, which I do to improve my cardiovascular endurance. It's something that's really hard for me because I don't find it interesting. It's like taking steps endlessly."
And if we were take a peak into your kitchen, what would we find?
"Lots of green vegetables, like cilantro, parsley, and zucchini, fruits, yogurt enriched with protein and cheeses. There will always be a box of homemade food like rice or chicken."
What's your guilty pleasure?
"When I go out to a restaurant I don't count calories and really allow myself to enjoy - I even order a few kinds of desserts. At home I try to follow my diet as close as possible."
What ingredients are in your health smoothies?
"I have all the fundamentals here to make a healthy smoothie, but after a workout I always go for a standard water-based protein shake."
What stresses you out?
"I'm not really a stressed person."
And still, what calms you down?
"When I feel myself getting stressed, I'll always try to do breathing exercises. I feel like it restarts my body and really cleanses my thoughts. After an exercise I can think much more clearly. But the fact that I maintain an active lifestyle automatically takes the stress off of everyday life."
What's a healthy habit you have?
"I used to love drinking lots of coffee and sweet drinks, but I got to the realization that those things aren't good for the body, so when I want to be refreshed I drink plain hot water, and it gives me the same effect as drinking coffee."
Do you suffer from FOMO or are you able to disconnect yourself?
"I have a time limit of one hour for social media on my phone. I saw that it stops me from completing tasks, so I limited myself ahead of time."
What motivates you?
"People who make significant changes in their lives. I have two friends that were overweight and considered having gastric bypass surgery. We thought it through together, and my opinion was that they could change their way of life with a dietitian and exercise routine and see results.
"Before, they weighed over 150 kilograms and today they're thin people, who managed to make a change with hard word. Things like these give me inspiration, and teach me that I can achieve the impossible."
Do you invest in grooming yourself or do you trust your natural good looks?
"The only thing I do is go to a beautician for a facial once every two years."
What do you see as the most important thing for maintaining a healthy lifestyle?
"Sleep, diet, and hydration - you cannot invest in one and neglect the other."
