Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page - Naina Arora

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.”
