The Sorrentinos Discussed Their Diet on a Recent Episode of Their Podcast
The Sorrentinos spoke about their diet on a recent episode of their podcast, “Here’s The Sitch with Mike & Laurens.” Mike revealed that he had indulged “with the snackers” the weekend before the podcast episode was recorded. Lauren explained that they watch “Jersey Shore: Family Vacation” together when it airs on Thursdays “and then it turns into a celebration.”
“Mike just always wants to turn up after the episode. He’s like let’s do snacks and then the weekend starts early,” said the mother-of-one.
Mike went on to say that he usually sticks to a strict diet, except on most Thursdays.
“I definitely turn up and treat thyself,” said the MTV star.
Lauren noted that while she can eat sweets “in moderation,” Mike has a difficult time doing so.
“It’s been proven that I have an addictive personality and I always keep an eye on that,” explained Mike.
Lauren then shared that she believes Mike “still look[s] amazing because [he] work[s] out so hard on the days [he] does work out” and is usually focused on his diet.
