4. What is your diet like?
I begin my day by drinking one litre lukewarm water and for breakfast, I mostly take three-four slices of brown bread with egg whites and one glass of juice. I take around five meals in a day so mid-morning, I eat salads. Post that, my lunch is mostly brown rice with lentils or chickpeas with curd. My evening snacks include coffee with two digestive biscuits and I end the day with wholesome dinner which includes either boiled chicken/ vegetables or grilled vegetables or scrambled eggs with vegetables.
5. What gives you the best results when trying to get lean?
For me, it has always been my metabolic rate which stays around 2000.

Mostly, people ask me, as to how do I maintain my physique. My answer for this is, I try to eat clean, sleep for at least eight hours in a day, and train for four-five days a week.
