A fitness tip for your fans...
Losing weight isn't only about hitting the gym every day, or keeping a check on your diet. It is a combination of the two.
How do you supplement your diet with your workout?
If I train in the morning, I have a protein shake. Breakfast includes one toast with four to six eggs. I try to cut down on carbs. Lunch consists of dal, sabzi, and chicken. I have either bajra roti or two phulkas. Dinner is light and has just protein. I have a lot of black coffee.
