Trent Arsenault has eaten the same breakfast, lunch and dinner almost every day for the past four or five years: a fruit smoothie in the morning, a spinach salad at noon and another fruit smoothie after work.
Every now and then he’ll add a snack to his day. Maybe a spoonful of almond butter or a few walnuts.
All in all, Arsenault consumes about 1,800 calories a day – or several hundred calories fewer than what a typical man his size would expect to eat.
But Arsenault is hardly typical. At 6 feet 1 inch tall, he weighs just 150 pounds, and he purposely restricts the calories he takes in because he believes a strict diet will allow him a much longer, healthier life than his peers.
