For lunch, he usually includes five chapatis, grilled vegetables, and fresh green salads. As for dinner, he prefers eating egg whites, with fish rich in Omega-3 or chicken with a serving of vegetable soup.
Salman Khan also likes to eat clean. Even though he loves feasting on desi khana, he does keep nutrition and health in mind. He also made significant cutbacks on sugary and processed foods. Not just that he also stay away from protein supplements, steroids, and advises his fans to do so too. As per ETimes report, Salman gave advice to all the young fitness enthusiasts, “Nowadays, there is a trend of taking steroids but it’s really a wrong trend. I feel no one should use these. In fact, a lot of people misuse steroids, which is really bad for their bodies because they can damage your liver and kidney. There are a lot of people who have died doing exercises in the gym because of heart failure. So, it is not the right thing to do at all.”
Another piece of advice that Salman gives to fitness enthusiasts is, “Whenever you get the time, you should do your workout. I get free time after lunch break or after dinner, in the morning or in between the shots. Whenever I get time, I exercise one body part. Sometimes, I exercise the stomach, chest or legs, because I don’t have the time to spend an hour or two in the gym. Wherever I spot a small place, I start doing exercises. I think you need gym equipment to do your exercise but if it’s not there, you can go for traditional forms of exercise.”
