If you believe that health is indeed your greatest wealth, then it might be a good idea to take a few simple steps to safeguard it. We often look up to celebrities to get some heavy duty health advice. After all, these people work really hard to maintain their fit bodies and flaunt them on the big screen.
Having said that, what if we told you that we know exactly what diet Shah Rukh Khan follows? Yes, you heard us right, Men’s Health recently joined hands with Celebrity Fitness Coach, Prashant Sawant, to bring to you SRK’s super healthy meal plan. It’s quick and easy and you don’t have to wrack your brain to figure out the ingredients for the recipes.
Shah Rukh starts his day off with eggs, two slices of bread and a glass of juice. He also takes a protein supplement with his morning breakfast. Later in the day, he munches on protein bars, usually as a mid-day snack before lunch.
Lunch for SRK is typically a chicken sandwich and grilled vegetables. The actor eats grilled chicken for both lunch and dinner. Evenings are usually rushed for him; so he prefers gulping down a protein shake.
Dinner is simple and comprises a portion of grilled chicken and vegetables. SRK loves sipping on coffee throughout the day. Sawant says that the good thing about the actor is that he doesn’t feel hungry too often (we definitely envy him!) and that he hardly ever feels like cheating on his daily diet. Sawant informs that “SRK is a very basic person. You will hardly find him eating anything junk. For instance, he won’t start munching on something if he’s sitting idle and has nothing to do. He prefers eating home-cooked food and always carries his dabbas. Whenever possible, he goes home for his meals instead of eating on the sets.”
For all you carbohydrate lovers, your favourite Bollywood actor likes to steer clear of all kinds of breads and rice. He avoids all simple carbohydrate foods like refined grains and anything that has added sugar. And lastly, his meals are cooked in very limited oil/butter.
Here are a few key takeaways from SRK’s diet regime:
1. Have a protein drink after your workout.
2. Eat high-fibre, complex carbohydrate foods like vegetables, legumes and whole grains.
3. Drink 2-3 litres of water every day.
4. Consume protein rich foods like chicken, egg whites, pulses, skimmed milk and lean meats.
5. Avoid sweets, alcoholic beverages and fried foods.
6 Strictly follow a low carbohydrate and high-protein diet.
