Nothing comes easy in life.
It doesn’t matter whether you are a millionaire or not. This adage is true for everyone. Mukesh Ambani’s son Anant, who once weighed 208 kilos had an amazing transformation. He shed 108 kilos in just 18 months and now weighs around 100 kilos. Many thought that he had undergone a surgery and never actually praised Anant’s tireless efforts. All credit goes to his fitness trainer Vinod Channa and his team who minutely charted out Anant’s fitness regime. Vinod had earlier trained actors like John Abraham and Shilpa Shetty. In an interview with Business Insider,
Vinod said: “During the first phase, we focused on his nutrition which included protein, low carbs, fibres, etc. We started walking from 30 minutes to two hours, depending on his capacity. For resistance training, we added supporting equipments like leg press, chest press. Initially, the workouts were low on intensity as he was unable to do high sets, high reps due to his medical issue and body balancing problems”
His daily consumption of calories was fixed. Vinod addded:
“His diet includes lots of vegetables, sprouts, cottage cheese, lentils, pulses and half teaspoon of ghee. This was the only diet he had stick to. His calorie consumption in a day was 1200 -1400 calories,”
There were days when things were not going fine. He said:
“Well, we all have our weak moments and Anant is also a human after all. Sometimes he used to expect that he needs to lose a certain gram of weight every day, which is not possible every time. His lifestyle, like late nights and hormonal changes and lot of other issues made him gain 200-300 grams due to which he felt de-motivated at times. He would be very tensed about his workout and diet routine. He wanted a diet plan that would make him lose weight every day, which is impossible.”
The best part is Anant never gave up and continued persistently:
“Anant was aware what he needs to do and where he needs to reach. He was dedicated and strict with his diet which is very difficult for an individual who has a past of over-eating and junk food. I also used to give him break diets so that he felt motivated for regular workouts also. Workout sessions, with time, became fun and enjoyable for him.”
All we can say that with dedication and hard work, the change is self-evident. Not sudden but slow.
