You never quite know what Justin Bieber is thinking. One day, he’s singing “Baby” to the love of his 16-year-old-life in a bowling alley, and the next thing you know, he’s drag racing down a blocked road. Then, he swears off all substances (ha) for a two-week period during a brief stint with divine connection.
He doesn’t explain his actions much, and maybe that’s part of the appeal of the Biebs: you don’t know what he’s going to do next. Similarly, he’s somewhat closed-mouthed and occasionally erratic about his diet. Want to get as close as eating like JB? Follow these steps.
1. Carbo-load every day
2. Learn to love poutine
You can take the boy out of Canada, but love for the country’s gravy-and-cheese-curd covered fries runs deep.
3. Skip the gum
With hair that gets almost as much attention as his songs (remember those dreads), there is no doubt that Justin is super-careful to keep anything sticky away from his locks. And in case you need more motivation, check out why you should stop chewing so much gum.
4. Grab the Sour Patch Kids
The Biebs didn’t seem to be phased for too long from the 2010 SPK-throwing incident at one of his concerts; it’s still his favorite sweet.
5. Eat your brain food
He can solve a Rubik’s cube in under two minutes, and that takes some serious brainpower. If you want to get on his level, try some of these foods to boost brain function. Huge glasses may help, but we can’t prove that.
6. Keep hydrated
7. Say no to tofu
According to ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez, Bieber’s brief attempt at veganism made him into a tofu-gagging jerk. He’s since gone back to eating meat, and even adopted a high-protein diet to bulk up.
8. Get the protein for those #gainz
Remember when JB weighed 100 pounds, tops? With his new #mycalvins ads, we don’t either. To get abs as chiseled as his, make sure to get plenty of protein post-workout.
9. Open wide
Don’t let layers on layers stop you. Take a lesson from JB, who’s been photographed multiple times displaying his superhuman ability to fit a huge (usually Subway) sandwich in his mouth without flinching.
10. Always make time to eat
Remember that time Biebs brought nachos and a slushie to the red carpet? We’re about that life.
