How Megan Young, Mikael Daez made the big change

"We made a major shift this year, from a meat-based to plant-based diet. We have observed an improvement in the energy level that we have, ever since," the 33-year-old actor told SPIN Life during a forum with various Summit Media editors.

    Aside from the big shift in their nutrition, he revealed that maintaining a fitness habit also helps them strike a balance.

    "At 9 PM we sleep, then we wake up at 5 AM to work out early so we have the rest of the day for us," he said.

    This allows them as well to make time for their avid interest in gaming and esports. Each of them hosts their own streaming channel. You may spot them loading up popular arena battler Mobile Legends, but their favorite game to play is Ragnarok.
