How is Julio healthy?

I stay healthy by exercising and eating right. I exercise 6 days a week which includes cardio 4 days a week. The reason I exercise six days week is to isolate the different parts of the body. This involves more growth, building my strength, definition, and body symmetry. I set a day of which part of the body I wanna hit like:

Monday: Chest
Tuesday: Legs (quads)
Wednesday: Back
Thursday: Rest
Friday: Legs (hamstrings)
Saturday: Shoulders
Sunday: Arms

I train my legs twice a week to divide the leg muscles to perfect my symmetry. I do cardio so I can stay lean and burn off any unwanted fat so my body stays tone and defined. My cardio focuses mostly on running and sprinting but I just don’t stick to that, I shadow box and I do laps in the pool during the winter just so I don’t get bored and stay motivated.

But like any other gym bunny I'm work my abs two days a week to get a sexy waist and stomach but it’s not all about crunches and sit-ups you gotta eat right. To get lean u gotta eat lean, eat smart, minimize eating pork and red meat, instead I eat chicken, turkey, boiled eggs, and then an occasional lean beef.

I minimize my carb intake by limiting my consumption of bread I sub white for whole grain or wheat. And how can I forget about my veggies and fruit, I make sure I consume my daily fruit and veggies to stay lean.
I maybe showing you my diet regiment but that doesn’t mean I don’t struggle with the occasionally slip up. I'm Mexican so my mother cooks nothing but traditional dishes and the occasional American.

I enjoy my tortillas but I eat smart, when I do so I eat the white corn rather than the yellow, it's less in sugar and calories. Even though I'm Mexican and I eat healthy it doesn't mean I can't enjoy my traditional dishes, so I just watch my portions and enjoy myself.

However this doesn't mean I stuff myself with junk food though I enjoy them it doesn't mean I'm gonna make a meal outta them, so I stay away from soda and other sugary drinks, even liquor. I stay with water making sure I drink a gallon a day but I divide my water intake by drinking coffee and tea, that way I have some flavor.

I stay healthy by taking vitamins drinking protein shakes and amino acids. They come in a variety of different types; it’s up to you which one you want to use that best fits what you’re going for you.           
Another reason I stay healthy is by flossing, yes flossing, and the reason why is because it will minimize any future heart conditions. The plaque in your teeth and gums can lead to clotted arteries which can result in different heart and health defects not to mention the occasionally funky breath; you don’t want to be told you need a mint!
