Superstar Salman Khan says he likes to live a healthy lifestyle and tries to stick to a balanced diet. The star, who turned a year older yesterday, launched his personal app to be in touch with his fans and opened up about his workout regime on the same.
“I cycle, swim, go to the gym, eat the right kind of food, and sleep late, as I don’t get sleep easily. The kind of food you eat is as important as your workout. I like leading a healthy lifestyle, and avoid processed and sugary food,” says Salman.
The Sultan star says his diet is high in protein and yellow dal cooked by his mom is his all time favourite. “My all-time favourite will remain the Yellow Dal that my mom cooked. My favourite dishes include rajma, chawal, and roti, very simple food.
“As far as my diet is concerned, for breakfast, I eat four egg whites and some low-fat milk. Pre-workout, I have a protein shake, and two egg whites. Post workout, it is a protein bar, oats, almonds and three egg-whites.
Lunch is largely meat, and includes mutton, fried fish, salad and lots of fruit. Dinner could be anything – chicken, fish, vegetables, or soup.”
Salman is known for starting the trend of having a fit physique and the actor says he religiously workouts to maintain a healthy body.
“I work out daily and follow a disciplined regime that consists of weight training and cardio. I usually focus on only few body parts – biceps, triceps, abs, legs and back. I can do multiple sit-ups, push-ups or crunches at a time.”
The superstar ringed in his 51st birthday at his Panvel farmhouse with his close friends and family.
