 The nutritional value of your food plays an integral role in determining your calorie intake and, by extension, your body fat percentage. According to the National Health Portal, fat-free and low-fat dairy products, fresh fruits, vegetables, and protein foods amount to healthy foods. It seems like Hrithik agrees since his healthy diet includes a rich quantity of fruits and vegetables. 

2. Eat your cheat meal

While we did stress the importance of being mindful of what you put on your plate, Hrithik doesn’t shy away from enjoying his cheat days and you shouldn’t either. After all, life is too short to entirely give up on the things we love. Besides, if Hrithik can enjoy his cheat meals and still maintain his physique, so can you.

Pro tip: A cheat meal is supposed to be once a week. Don’t go overboard! 

3. Ground yourself, as Hrithik does

Our mental health is just as important as our physical health, especially in today’s day and age when there is so much clutter around us. In a conversation with Outlook India, Kris Gethin, Hrithik’s coach, talks about how the actor meditates twice daily, takes ice baths, and ensures he recovers from all the hard work he puts in the day. 

4. Rest well to recover 

Speaking of recovering, fitness is not all about training and sweating it out. So make sure you rest well after all the hard work you put in the gym. According to the American Council of Excercise, it is of utmost importance that one recovers after all the gymming and hard training they indulge in. Staying hydrated and maintaining a healthy diet should be a priority as well.

According to Northwestern Medicine, it’s important to maintain regular intervals between your meals. As for Bollywood’s Greek God Hrithik Roshan, he too follows a definite time interval between his meals—a solid hack that will help you achieve that gym body you’re manifesting.
