Ranveer Singh put on special diet to achieve Kapil Dev's lean frame for '83
One meal at a time Meal planner Anmol Singhal charts out Ranveer Singh's special diet to achieve Kapil Dev's lithe frame for '83
If Ranveer Singh dedicated the past six months to train in cricket for '83, a team of nutritionists and chefs has been quietly working with him. their goal has been simple — help the star attain the lean frame that the then- skipper Kapil Dev sported in the '80s. Considering Singh has been his client for six years, Anmol Singhal, the co-founder of PoD supply, is no stranger to his fluctuating demands in keeping with his roles. This time around, Singhal devised a protein-heavy diet for the leading man of Kabir Khan's sports drama.

"Ranveer loves Indian cuisine. So, we try and bring as much variety into his food while keeping the restrictions in mind. for the past few months, Ranveer has been put on a protein-heavy diet. Few of his favourites are the jalapeño and crisp bacon omelette. Our signature mush that comprises of rolled oats, eggs, topped with mixed nuts and fresh berries. The complex carbs [boost his] energy while the proteins help him cut the fat and increase muscle mass," says Singhal, adding that eggs and oily fish dominate his meals. One of his chefs has headed to London with Singh to monitor his diet during the shoot.
The actor's weakness for Nutella is well- known. so, it's not surprising when Singhal reveals that they have created a special substitute so that Singh can give in to his sweet tooth without feeling guilty. "We've cracked a healthy variant of Nutella for Ranveer — it's an avocado mousse, made of 90 per cent dark chocolate chips and avocados."
