He's a big fan of supplements.
To complement his diet, Asghari relies on a daily supplement routine.
"I try to focus on fatty acids, omega-3s, fish oils, multivitamins. The vitamins help you with the functionality of not just your body, but also your brain."
Cheat days are still on the menu.
"I love cheat days. I love food," says Asghari, a former chef.
"A burger and fries is definitely a go-to. I definitely do one [cheat] meal throughout the week…I try to be healthy enough [with] 95% of my diet routine that I allow myself for that 5% to have that food that I desire."
