So, in order for you to get some inspiration, here are a few Bollywood celebrities who went from fat to fab and stunned everyone with their amazing weight loss transformation stories.
Indian Celebrities Weight Loss Transformations
The first in the list is Mr.Anant Ambani, the son of Billionaire Mukesh Ambani. Of-course, he is not a Bollywood actor and just a celebrity. But the reason, I’ve included him in this list and at the first place is because of his mind-blowing transformation.
Anant lost nearly 108 KGs of weight without undergoing any weight reduction surgery or medicines. All he did was to follow a strict low carb diet along with customized workouts to suit his bodyweight.
He used to spend around 5-6 hours every day in exercising, which includes cardio exercises, strength training, yoga and 21 km walk.
The second in the list is the most popular Bollywood singer ‘Adnan Sami, who is known for his soothing voice and a heavyweight personality. Within just 11 month span, he lost close to 130 kilos. There are reports that he underwent bariatric surgery, but it is not true.
He followed a very strict low carb high protein diet and didn’t miss a single day of workout. In order to dedicate himself to losing all that excess weight, he even stayed away from his career for nearly an year.
Before entering the industry, Sonakshi was a chubby girl and she weighed around 90 kgs. By the time of her debut in the movie ‘Dabangg’, she has lost 30 kgs, which is very impressive.
She did it all by following a high protein, low carb diet and worked out for 5 days in a week with 2 days rest to recover. Bikram Yoga is her favorite exercise to lose more weight.
Currently, she was 10 kgs lighter than her debut movie.
