Durrell Artaze Babbs—singer, songwriter, record producer, and guy who lives up to his stage name—“Tank” may be one of the lightest eaters we’ve interviewed. The man crushes two-a-day workouts and still manages to keep his meals to the minimum: three dishes, all consumed before the sun goes down.
“The philosophy behind my diet is: you are what you eat,” Tank explained in an episode of Men’s Health’s Eat Like.“What you put into your body is going to create your body’s output. What I put into my body, I want to make sure that it’s helping me be all I can be physically as well as be all I can be mentally.”

Tank is up at 6:30 AM every day with a Celcius energy drink. Then it’s time to layer up—top and bottom compression suit, top and bottom sweatsuit, and then a winter coat—“like I’m going Denver, Colorado.” Then he’s off on the treadmill. High incline. Forty-five minutes of fat burning.
When Tank’s done with the running, he’s back in the kitchen with“super food cakes”: spinach, kale, onions, carrots, etc., all baked into bit-sized muffins. He’ll have a few after a brutal run. Then it’s time for more cardio before he hits the weights. All this before noon—sometimes with a supplement shake mixed in.
Surely, Tank is starving by now. Nope.“I’m not a heavy eater,” he explained.“I don’t eat a lot. Which is kind of how I stay lean. I don’t do it on purpose. I just don’t have a large appetite.” But Tank does love salads. And so lunch might include a Chinese chicken salad from Whole Foods and a little cheat meal that: a coconut cookie, because Tank is mortal.
A Reading List of Memoirs on Mothers Impacted by Mental Illness
The writer, who was raised by a mother who lived with mental illness, shares a list and descriptions of 16 memoirs that explore motherhood and mental health.At first, I felt isolated, ashamed. How could this have happened? My beautiful talented mother? I had no resources to draw from; I didn’t know how to feel. No one’s mother [I knew] had devolved into psychosis.
The dinner bell rings at six or seven—“that’s it, no more food for the rest of the night, no matter how late I stay up”—usually with one staple item, like a small chicken pot pie. Protein-heavy, veggie-heavy, and enough calories to jump start the next morning’s workout. And then it’s water for the rest of the night.
“A lot of people can’t eat this light, especially doing two-a-days, cardio and lifting,” Tank admitted.“I can for some odd reason.” But Tank is able to maintain this discipline, because every once in a little while … Tank cheats. And Tank doesn’t just cheat with some little coconut cookie. No, no. You’re gonna want to hear Tank break it down.
