We all have laughed along with and on Tanmay Bhat. This man has never been afraid of trying anything new and out-of-the box. His sportsmanship is commendable. Though, Tanmay has been in the limelight for a long time following his stints with AIB, this time he is ruling the trending charts for all the right and inspirational reasons!
Tanmay never shied away for being on the heavier side, but the transformation that he has gone through is remarkable and inspirational. He has lost almost 109 Kgs in less than 12 months! This is what he looks like now:
We know that you cannot wait to know about the secret, but let us tell you something with a straight face, there are no shortcuts to success. Tanmay followed Keto diet to shed his excess pounds. He attributes his success to this diet routine. Here is all that you need to know about the Keto diet and the workout regime that he followed.
The stand-up comedian swore by the Keto Diet for achieving his desired goal. It is a low carb diet that forces your body to use fats to gain energy. When your body does not get enough carbs, it starts producing small fuel molecules known as 'ketones' using the fat. They burn all the extra fat in the body making you lose weight. Tanmay's trainer Ranveer himself tried the diet first and then suggested the same to his client.
On Tanmay's diet, Ranveer said,
"Tanmay made a few tweaks to his diet, substituting the bad carbs from sugar-rich foods like pastries and ice-creams, with good carbs from foods like whole grains, veggies and nuts, along with plenty of protein-dense food like chicken and seafood."
The idea of limiting carbs and increasing the fat intake may sound bizarre, but it actually works if you make sure that the fats that you are consuming are the good ones. You also need to remember that the carbs and the fats that you are acquiring are from healthy sources like nuts, whole grains and vegetables. Eating fat doesn't mean that you can gorge on as many cakes and pizzas as you want. It means eating right!
Along with few carbs and good fats, you also need to make sure that you consume the adequate amount of proteins or else, you will lose muscle weight instead of fat. Being on a strict diet doesn't mean that you cannot enjoy yourself once in a while. Tanmay and Ranveer had their cheat days as well.
Explaining what dieting actually means, Ranveer said,
"Tanmay swapped desserts, ice cream and Bingo Mad Angles for chicken breasts, lots of veggies and medium sized portions of complex carbs. He’s been following a detailed diet plan that I gave him. BUT twice a week, both of us make it a point to gorge on Joey’s Pizza and/or Frisbees burgers. THAT is correct dieting. You can’t maintain a long-term diet plan unless you ENJOY yourself once in a while."
The Keto diet is very effective for those who want to lose weight without spending their entire lifetime in the gym! Tanmay followed this diet religiously and combined it with a simple workout.
By switching his diet, Tanmay was able to achieve his desired body without doing intense cardio. He did a lot of weight lifting, combined with some cardio and a powerful diet.
"So for a while now, this beast (Bhat) has been following a workout that involves heavy-ass powerlifting and a bit of cardio. But what’s really done wonders for him is the change in diet. By making just a few tweaks in his diet, he’s gone from being Mr. Big Guy to being Mr. Steal Yo Girl."
Meanwhile, Tanmay posted this on his Twitter account:
With some changes in your diet and workout, you can get a healthy body. The motive behind restricting what you eat shouldn't just be weight loss, but achieving a balanced lifestyle. A lean body is indeed, healthier. Proper diet and workout promote a healthy mind and secures you emotionally as well!
If you have been harbouring the thought that you need to cut on fats in order to lose weight then you are wrong. Well, you aren't the only one who thought so. The keto diet is here to turn your fat loss theory upside down. Like Atkin's, the keto diet is aRead More
