And why not? He now has his own hard abs to show, the result of diligent workouts. "I lost 60 lbs. and that is not because of science but because of diet and exercise," he boasts.

It turned out Aga, over time, while keeping his good looks, has gained incredible (to him, at least) weight — 224 lbs. from an ideal weight of 172 lbs. It must be domestic bliss. He seems a happy, contented man with a beautiful, intelligent wife and adorable twins.

Okay, but life is a series of tradeoffs. You get so happy, you grow heavy. Aga then decided he'd trim down even before he turns 40 (he's 38). And to his rescue came his fitness trainer, Bobby Agustin, who designed a workout and a diet to make Aga lose more than 50 lbs.

The actor wanted six-pack abs. After all, he's an oatmeal-product endorser and is doing a movie with Maricel and Angelica — with a pool scene.

Aga's diet is high on protein; no fat, salt and sugar. Each meal is taken every three hours. No sodas or sweetened juices. Green apple is the only snack allowed. He eats lots of steamed okra, as well as wheat pasta, fish and chicken.
