There are no quick tricks to lose weight or even magical weight loss hacks that can render the same effect as that of cleaning your diet. Weight loss begins in the kitchen by eating right. It is one of the foremost things you need to change to embark on a fitter future. 26-year-old Mohit D Anand, who recently worked alongside Sanjay Dutt in Panipat credits Dr. Siddhant Bhargava, Chief Nutritionist & Co-Founder of Food Darzee—a Mumbai-based company that offers tailor made nutrition by serving customised diet meals—for helping him stay on track during his weight loss journey.
Anand shares that at his heaviest, 4 years ago, he weighed 122 kg with 39 per cent body fat. And today, after following the below weight loss plan, he weighs 80 kg with 18 per cent body fat. “Growing up, I never shied away from food. I ate a lot of food but also hit the gym. However, I started noticing a change in the weighing scale after realising that I had no idea about my body type. I was constantly binging on the wrong foods,” he says. “So I commenced on the below weight loss plan to help me get back on track.”
Weight loss plan he followed to lose 42 kg –
“I started running 10 km a day as well as monitoring my calorie intake, apart from still going to the gym. I reduced my total calorie consumption to 1500 calories and also learnt about how my body reacts to different foods.”
“My body type is that of an endomorph, which means I get bulky as soon as I start lifting and then overweight as well very soon. So, I worked very hard everyday to build muscles like that of my fitness idols Akshay Kumar and John Abraham and followed the below basic diet plan.”
Diet plan he followed to lose weight –
“I started eating a lot of home-made food as well as avoiding sugar and oil after 7 pm. Now, I’ve also turned vegetarian after watching Game Changers on Netflix.”
Any tips for someone who’s trying to lose weight?
“Weight loss is difficult and asks for a lot. But if you are willing to go the extra mile then nothing can stop you. Not even excuses. Dwayne Johnson is one of the busiest celebrities in the world, yet he still has time to go to the gym daily – what’s stopping you?”
