âIndecent proposals? I just ignore them!â
Body Talk with Jeric Gonzales, star of the Kapuso soap Ika-5 Utos: Puede sila humanga sa akin. Pero pag may offer, ibang usapan na yan. I believe na lahat ng bagay dapat pag-trabahuhan at paghirapan.

After that unpleasant incident that, well, “exposed” him on social media, Jeric Gonzales has taken to heart the “Think before you click” reminder.

A Nursing graduate (taking the board exams has been put on hold) from Calamba Doctors’ College in his hometown in Calamba, Laguna, Jeric was a Ginoong Laguna second runner-up in 2012 before he joined the GMA talent search Protégé and finished the Ultimate Male Protege along with Thea Tolentino, his female counterpart.

Jeric is in the cast of the Kapuso soap Ika-5 Utos, directed by Laurice Guillen, as the son of Jean Garcia.

A Leo (Aug. 7, 1992), Jeric stands 5’10”; weighs 154 lbs.; and wears medium-sized shirt and briefs and size-9 shoes.

Do you follow a specialized diet?

“Not really. I just follow a low-carbs, high-protein and high-fiber diet. I have stopped eating pork. I’m more into chicken and fish. If ever, lean meat lang, white meat.”

What’s usually for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and snacks? 

“For breakfast, hindi nawawala ang egg. I love eggs, especially sunny-side up and omelets. And, of course, coffee. For lunch, brown rice and fish. For snacks, only brewed coffee. For dinner, usually eat chicken and vegetables.”

How much water do you take per day? 

“I take around 2.5 liters per day. But if I have a pictorial, only two liters a day kasi malakas magpa-bulk ang water at magpa- bloat so dapat less water para hindi mukhang mataba.”

What vitamins (or supplements) are you taking?

“Vitamin C and B-Complex. No supplements.”

And your sex life?

“Not that active, sakto lang.”

Do you have a nightlife?

“Almost zero. I’m more of a homebody.”  

Have you ever received an indecent proposal and how did you deal with it?

“Optimist na may pagka-worrier din.”

How do you relax, cope with stress (music, movies or meditation)?

“Lahat ‘yan music, movies and meditation. I sing, play the guitar. I watch movies so I am learning while relaxing. I go to church and pray.”
