Aamir Khan’s penchant for transforming himself for his movie roles is popular, and the actor is successful at it once again. The star snatched some major attention for ballooning to 40% body fat for the first phase of shooting for Dangal – his latest movie, a wrestling drama, and then cutting down to less than 10% in five months. It is one of the best transformations ever done by an actor. In a press briefing, the actor said that he lost around 25 Kg in just five months without using steroids.
The actor told media that a balanced diet is crucial to losing weight.
“The key is a balanced diet. To lose weight, I depend – 50 percent – on diet, 25 percent on the workout, and 25 percent on sleep. If you don’t sleep at least eight hours a day, you will not get the desired results from your fitness and diet efforts,” the actor said.
Khan also said that he followed the old-fashioned calorie count method to lose weight
“People use new methods, different diets these days. I still stick to calorie count system. Take 20 percent of your calorie intake from healthy fats, 30 percent of calorie is from proteins and 50 percent of the calories consumed should be from carbohydrates,” said the actor.
He further said that carbohydrates and fats are also essential for a balanced diet and healthy weight loss.
“People believe that fats and carbohydrates are least important and avoid them when losing weight but, in fact, it is healthy oils and fats which are a must. My diet had 50 percent carbs; they make your brain work properly. I just ensured that I burnt more calories than what I took,” he said.
The actor could lose 3-4 pounds a week, but he advised people to choose a healthy weight loss plan – losing 1-2 pounds a week. The actor has used no medication to achieve his fitness goal. He is truly Mr. Passionate.
