Who’s the biggest loser? Celebs shed big kilos
Ahost of celebrities from the glam world seem to be on a drive to lose weight. Actors Satish Kaushik and Jaaved Jaaferi, comedian Tanmay Bhatt and choreographer Ganesh Acharya, have all gone the fit way, recently. “This health trip has changed my life,” says Kaushik who has lost 23 kilos. The 61-year-old actor transformed himself for his 5-year-old daughter Vanshika. “I shed the kilos so that I can run around with her,” he shares. Speaking about the journey to a slimmer self Kaushik shares, “I was referred to a doctor in Los Angeles. While losing weight I followed a protein diet in which you take 500 calories a day and don’t eat after 9pm. You eat at noon the next day. It was tough initially, but I got used it and I am feeling so light now,” he says.
Choreographer Ganesh Acharya stunned many when pictures of him weighing 85 kilos lesser, surfaced. “It was tough for me and took me over a year to lose weight. I swam twice a day, went to the gym and did not eat before 12 noon and after 8pm. Now, I want to further reduce 19 kilos,” says Acharya.
Tanmay lost 110 kilos and the man who helped him in the endeavour, fitness coach Ranveer Allahbadia, says, “He really enjoyed powerlifting (squat, dead lift and bench press). He also ate super clean. We did the ketogenic diet, a primarily zero carb bodybuilding diet. It’s a very difficult diet to follow.” A strict diet has also helped host-actor Jaaferi, who posted a photo of his ripped avatar online. Speaking about how he got the eight packs, the 53-year-old says, “I went on a four-month gluten-free and dairy-free diet. There was Ramadan in the middle and I did some weight training.”
