Bruce Springsteen, now 63, still rocks with the best of them, performing 3+ hour sets and still diving into the crowds. What keeps him going? A recent Telegraph article reveals that Bruce Springsteen eats a mostly vegetarian diet to keep him fit and energetic. But that wasn’t always the case.

He’s come a long way since his early days, when the skinny performer would fuel himself with junk food and exhaust himself on stage to the point that, trainer Phil Dunphy once claimed, “they used to have to carry him offstage.”

The Telegraph reports that in the early ’80s, Dunphy put together a fitness regime for Springsteen that included free weights and running 6 miles per day, and the rocker still follows that routine to this day. His drug-free lifestyle and mainly vegetarian diet has helped the musician thrive. Roy Bittan, the piano player for Springsteen’s E Street Band, says, “I watch every night, and I’m constantly amazed at the energy he has.”

Sounds like The Boss is in his best shape yet!
