He shed nearly 50 kilos before he entered into the Bollywood. His weight loss transformation took nearly 4 years as he managed to lose weight without spoiling his health i.e., the natural way.
How Did Arjun Kapoor’s Weight Loss Journey Began?
Arjun says that he was inspired by Salman Khan, who actually suggested him to shed weight if he wanted to become an actor in the future. Upon the suggestion of Salman Khan, Arjun decided not to follow any quick weight loss diets to reach his goal. It is because all the lose weight will return back once we started eating normally. So, it is the lifestyle that should be changed, in order to lose weight in a healthy manner.
At first it was very tough for Arjun to avoid fast foods, as he is fond of burgers and other junk food. In fact, Arjun says that he can eat three McDonalds Burgers at one go. But, he gave up junk food and shifted to a healthy eating pattern. The regular white rice was replaced with Quinoa, which is full of proteins and also included Chicken in his diet.
Since Arjun is overweight, he lost the initial pounds very easily as our body responds very quickly to any kind of physical activity if we’re too obese. Initially, our body loses all the water weight. In case of Arjun Kapoor, he lost nearly 10 to 11 Kgs in the first month itself.
However, he has put on most of the lost weight when he returned to normal eating. It happened with him several times – Losing and again gaining weight.
In order to overcome the weight regain problem, he incorporated workouts along with the diet. He also stresses that if you ever overeat, then you need to work it off in the gym to maintain your results. He joined the workout sessions with Salman Khan and also used to cycle from his house to the film city daily. He says that ‘when you live with a person (Salman) who is so aware and fond of his body, you’d naturally get inspired to copy him’.
