If you are an actor or model, you know the importance of a good
headshot. When trying to book a job, your headshot is the first impression of
what casting agents see – it’s important that it be the best representation of
yourself. So you want to look your best! I always tell clients that for the week
before their headshots are taken, they should be exercising, getting plenty of
sleep, drinking a ton of water and eating clean.
The best advice I give my clients is to substitute 2 meals a day with 2 meal
replacement shakes per day. Typically I recommend doing a shake for breakfast
and a shake for lunch, then eating a healthy dinner. Some of my model friends
recommended a weight loss shake by 310 Nutrition called 310 Shake, which I
always recommend because it has less than a gram of sugar per serving and is
only 90 calories per serving. At such a low calorie count, it gives people room to
add different things to the shake to change the flavor so they don’t get sick of
drinking it. I like mixing in spinach and kale, sometimes apples, and strawberries
and bananas together are always a good idea! 310 Shake follows my rule of
eating clean and keeping out the bad stuff, enabling you to look for very best for
headshot day. The protein shake doesn’t contain any sucralose, fructose or
aspartame. It utilizes a proprietary protein blend and leaves out the soy.
Basically, 310 has taken care to cut out all controversial ingredients and are able
to present their customers with a clean, healthy meal substitution.
Drinking this, combined with at least 7 hours of sleep per night, 2 liters of water a
day (easy equation to remember: eight 8-ounce glasses, the 8×8 rule), moderate
portion sizes of lean meats and fish, veggies and fruits, and grains and beans,
plus some healthy exercise will get you looking your best so you can book all
those jobs that you are destined for!
