The one thing that Shah Rukh Khan has kept constant in all these years is his diet. That — coupled with a regular fitness regimen crafted by his trainer, Prashant Sawant— is how the 50-year-old star can show off 8-pack abs like these. Of course, even Shah Rukh Khan can’t resist the occasional binge with his favourite cheat meal, a plate of piping hot chole bhatura.
Shah Rukh Khan’s diet details
He eats a balanced diet
Shah Rukh believes in eating moderately and keeping his diet controlled, rather than cutting out certain foods entirely. Eating healthy home-cooked food twice a day works well for him and he doesn’t take breaks to munch on something in between. His meals consist of sprouts, grilled chicken, broccoli and daal.
He can’t eat in public
Being a paparazzi favourite, the man can’t just walk into his favourite dhaba and order at whim. That’s why he shies away from eating in public, and usually ends up attending events on a full stomach.
Travelling allows him to eat what he wants
Shah Rukh uses travel as a chance to eat what he wants, even if that means snacking on the kind of fried foods that are usually taboo.
Even Shah Rukh Khan indulges in guilty pleasures
Offer him a plate of Chole Bhature from Bengali Market in Delhi, and watch the biggest movie star in Bollywood turn into putty.
His biggest fitness tip
Put your cellphone on silent mode and leave it in your locker when you hit the gym. “The gym is where you go to punish your body and get it into shape. I dislike when people talk on their phones or treat the gym as a place for socialising,” he says. Oh, and drink plenty of water to keep the body hydrated.
