“How can you be 50 years of age and still not look a day over 30?” is something we’d like to ask Bollywood’s Khiladi, Akshay Kumar. The actor has been flooring us with his stunts since the past two decades and still manages to get away as the young action hero who romances a twenty-something on screen.
So how does he do it? How does Akshay Kumar look equally as stunning as he did with Shilpa Shetty in the 90s as he does with Nimrat Kaur in 2016! Here’s his secret.
Eat Before Sunset
“Only one thing which I have followed in my life, which I would like to share with you all is that eat your food before sunset. It will make a lot of difference,” professes the actor.
An ardent believer of finishing his meals before sun down, here’s what Akshay Kumar’s diet consists of.
For breakfast, he likes to keep in touch with his desi side with parathas and a glass of milk. This is followed by a bowl of fresh fruits at noon.
Lunch comprises of vegetables, dal, roti and chicken accompanied by a bowl of curd.
Dinner is usually light with soup, salad and vegetables and if, of course, had before 8 pm or sunset. The actor swears by home cooked food and avoids outside food as much as possible.
Fit & Fine
When it comes to fit celebrities, Akshay’s is probably the first name that pops into everyone’s head. And for good reason. The actor is known for his strict heath regimes and his expertise in martial arts.
The actor gets up at 4.30 in the morning everyday and goes for a warm walk at the beach. The walk is followed up with an hour of martial arts alternating between kick-boxing and shadow boxing.
Akshay adds in some stretching and yoga exercises and meditates for an hour, as he believes it helps maintain inner balance and de-stresses.
In addition to his workout, he also swims, plays basketball at least thrice a week and goes trekking regularly to keep his stamina up.
He keeps mixing various workout routines so that his routine does not get monotonous.
While shooting when the star doesn’t have time to devote to martial arts he prefers climbing a staircase. He even has an artificial tree in his gym which he climbs regularly.
