My Fit­ness Mantra: My work­out rou­tine is not fixed. Some­times, I work out for six days a week and some­times, seven. I do two hours of car­dio weights and func­tional train­ing ev­ery al­ter­nate day. I fol­low a lot of car­dio weight train­ing in be­tween burpees and func­tional train­ing. Diet Guide:

I am off carbs now, and am al­lowed to have a junk or cheat day once a week in mod­er­a­tion. As my work­out con­sists of high weight train­ing, I try to avoid eat­ing any junk food. And if I crave, I make sure I work out well for the next few days to burn those calo­ries.

Break­fast: Omelet with var­i­ous veg­eta­bles, fried in but­ter or coconut oil.

Lunch: Chicken salad with some olive oil. Snack: 24 raw al­monds. Din­ner: Grilled chicken wings with some raw spinach on the side. Or meat­balls with veg­eta­bles. Ul­ti­mate Cheat Food:

Any­thing that is sweet makes its way to my cheat food list – from cakes and pas­tries to sweets. Do’s and Don’ts While Work­ing Out: I don’t eat too much prior to my work­out sched­ule. And I make sure I eat within an hour of hav­ing worked out.
