Hrithik believes in following a very strict diet. He likes to eat healthily, and believes that you are what you eat. He says you should eat at regular intervals as it enhances your metabolism. According to him, ninety percent of the job is done through diet, and ten percent through exercise. He does not follow the concept of crash dieting, and for him, a proper diet is of utmost importance. Rather than having three heavy meals in a day, he prefers having small meals at regular intervals. For his protein intake, he prefers having egg whites, chicken, and protein shakes. His carbohydrate menu includes oats, sweet potato, pasta, brown rice, and for Omega 3 fatty acids, he prefers omega oil. He takes 100 grams of meat every day. For regular fibre, mineral and vitamin intake, this hot bod depends upon fibrous carbs, sprouts, broccoli, and spinach.

But, everybody has their cravings and so does this superstar. He is a big foodie and his temptation for chocolates, ice creams, sweets, etc. is fulfilled on his cheat day. He has one such day when he relinquishes his sweet tooth and indulges in junk food and other fast foods.
The actor follows a strenuous workout regime, under the supervision of his fitness instructor. He has specific workout plans for every day of the week, leaving Wednesday since that is his rest day, which has been designed by his instructor, Kris Gethin. He does 20-30 minutes of cardio exercises daily.
His daily workout schedule is-
He focuses on chest, calves, and back. He performs dumbbell bench press, incline dumbbell flyes, underhand cable pull, bent over barbell row, back extension, seated calf raises, and standing calf raise exercises.
Legs are his main area of focus on Tuesday, which includes leg press, seated leg tucks, extension, lying leg curls, squats, etc.
This super-chiselled hero does shoulder, calves, and abs exercises on Thursday. He practices marble military press, side lateral raise, upright barbell row, reverse flies, weighted sit ups, seated calf raise, and standing calf raise exercises.
Arms are his priority on Friday. The exercises include straight arm dumbbell pullover, cable rope triceps extension, cable lying triceps extension, standing dumbbell triceps extension, straight arm pull down, concentrated curls, dumbbell bicep curl and standard biceps cable curl.
With his strict workout regime and six meal diet plans, the actor certainly looks younger than his age. He is in his forties now and seems a decade younger than his age. He believes that intense workout is a must to lead a disciplined life. His fitness mantra is based on two words- initiative and consistency, and he tries to keep stress at bay so as to stop the accumulation of toxins in the body.
