Joseph Marco, of perfectly chiseled abs and pore-less face glory, keeps himself healthier and fitter than he already is.
The actor and recording artist is a gym buff and a sports enthusiast, which helps him maintain his physique. But Joseph doesn't just rely on how hard he works on his body, he's also now on a "mission" to watch what he puts into what he eats.
This is where his "new love" comes in: baking.
"Nag-umpisa 'yon kasi na-curious ako kung pa'no bine-bake ang isang tinapay and kung ano'ng ingredients nun," he told us in a recent chat. "I wanna take care of myself, my health."
There's a little sacrifice involved there, because Joseph doesn't put sugar nor salt in his breads!
"It's purely flour, yeast," he noted. "Matabang siya pero at the end of the day, kung kailangan mag-diet, it's helping me."
He's just as blessed as the rest of us living in the YouTube age in which through just a quick search, we can learn anything we want.
"By just watching the videos, parang ang dali na lang gawin eh. It's just a matter of kung makukuha mo nang tama, tamang texture and all. I'm still learning and balak kong mag-aral every Sunday for baking," he explained.
A proof that he really takes baking seriously is him buying his own equipment, including a mixer.
"'Yun pala 'yung nagpapadali sa buhay ng isang baker," he said. "Kasi 'di ba 'yung masa 'yung mahirap. Na-try ko kasi dati nagmasa ako tapos sobrang nakakapagod siya. 'Pag may mixer ka, ang dali na lang gawin. Susundan mo na lang 'yung ingredients and recipes tapos makukuha mo na siya."
Joseph seems to see doing baking for a long time. And he likewise sees adding sugar and salt to his mix in the future. And by future, we mean, post-"Wildflower" future.
"Kasi nag-commit ako na sabi ko, best shape ako 'pag ginawa namin 'tong 'Wildflower,'" he said, referring to his latest sizzling primetime series with his first-time leading lady Maja Salvador. "'Pag natapos 'yung topless scenes, pwede na 'kong maglagay paunti-unti pero sobrang nae-enjoy ko 'yung baking. For me it's like an art."
We're betting we'll see Joseph in his best shape also in the upcoming Star Cinema film "Dear Other Self," together with JC de Vera and Jodi Sta. Maria.
