Jason Derulo’s Diet
Derulo is constantly tinkering with his diet and says he has tried literally everything: vegan, vegetarian, pescatarian, single-food, and so on. He says what works best for him is high protein and intermittent fasting. He eats pretty strictly, particularly when he’s prepping for a specific event. One of his recent faves is bone broth, which he says isn’t especially tasty, but he likes what it does for him. He varies his diet based on how different foods make him feel. He is also famous for his Milli Meals, fantasy creations that a kid would love.
- Low-Medium Carb 25% 25%
- Medium Fat 35% 35%
- High Protein 50% 50%
Derulo fiddles around with his foods, but he is very careful to stick to healthy whole foods, like eggs, meat, veggies, and the like.
If Derulo plays fast and loose with his diet, he gets himself back on track by only have 2 meals a day: bone broth with veggies, legumes and other nutritious additions for meal #1 and grilled salmon or chicken and veggies for the other.
