Moderation, food order important to Transformers star

Transformers 3 star Josh Duhamel goes to extremes in the just-released third installment of the popular trilogy.

But when it comes to his diet, the North Dakota-born heartthrob practices moderation.

“I’m not opposed to eating a cheeseburger. I’m not opposed to eating pizza or whatever, either,” Duhamel tells me. “But I’ve always maintained a moderate diet.”

Besides practicing dietary moderation, the 38-year-old movie star is also keenly aware of some of the tenets of good digestion.

“One thing I’ve been learning about recently is the importance of digestion and the order in which you put foods into your body affects the way the body digests it,” he explains.

“Certain foods take longer to digest. And if you put that in your body early in the day, it’s going to take everything else behind it that much longer, which causes a slowing down of metabolism and things like that, which is pretty interesting.”

Hmmn, food for thought.

Thanks, Josh.
