21 Feb Interview: Chromatics on weight loss
We caught up with Trinidadian rapper Chromatics to get the latest on his recent weight loss and how he maintains his fitness.
- Can you share how you went about losing so much weight over the last year?
It was a lot of exercise combined with a low carb diet which included steamed vegetables and salads combined with lean meats. I was very uncomfortable having been the heaviest I ever was and I know that the weight loss would not only make feel better, but also allow for more energy on stage. I never visited a gym, I used a treadmill at home along with some free weight and body weight exercises, and two days a week Iâ€™d play basketball.I encourage anybody to include a sport in their workout regime as I believe you push yourself more when your playing to win than just looking at the calories on a treadmill or eleptical go by.
- What is your favourite seafood dish?
I am a fan of Salmon. Itâ€™s versatile and tastes good anyway it is prepared.
- Can you share a recipe of a seafood that you like to cook?
Baked Salmon: I would prepare a marinate with olive oil, salt & black pepper, little garlic and rosemary. Very simple and quick to prepare.
- What is your favourite beverage to accompany this meal?Â
A cold Angostura LLB or a glass of water.
- Do you have a favourite restaurant to eat out?
Not particularly, although I’m a man of habit I like some variety every now and then.
