Shahid Kapoor body transformation 

We saw the muscular Shahid Kapoor way back in 2010, with his award-winning performance in Kaminey. His shirtless running scene established his as a new poster boy for six-pack abs.

Shahid Kapoor didn't let any role stereotype him; he consistently changed his avatar from time to time to shock his fans. His selection of unconventional characters got him accolades both from critics and the public. If Kaminey was about shahid looking ripped, a few years later, we saw him in Haider, with no muscle mass.

But in all these years, Shahid Kapoor has managed to maintain a body that has helped him play different roles in movies. Given a fact, that he is a vegetarian, maintaining muscle mass must have been a challenge for him.

Shahid Kapoor Vegetarian diet plan

I remember once Shahid quoted 

"The biggest challenge for me was getting a six-pack with a vegetarian diet. To build muscles, one needs to have enough supplies of protein. Now, my body does not get animal protein, so I have to make up for its loss."

Shahid Kapoor's biggest challenge so far has been his ripped Padmavat look. As per the reports (by major daily newspapers), Shahid Kapoor relied a lot on beans, rice, spinach, fruits, veggies, and whey protein supplements to meet his daily protein requirement.

Being a vegetarian has its own set of challenges, but Shahid Kapoor didn't let that stop him.

Shahid Kapoor Padmavat diet

Being a perfectionist, Shahid Kapoor doesn't leave any stone unturned to make his character look more convincing. That is precisely what he did for his role in Padmavat.

He maintained a strict diet for 40 days eating only brown rice and steamed vegetables. According to the reports, Shahid Kapoor even gave up on sugar and salt for a few days to acquire that chiseled, sculpted look for his role.

Shahid Kapoor can be extreme when it comes to his discipline! He hired a Canadian celebrity chef Kelvin Cheung to make all his meals with the right amount of macronutrients.

Shahid Kapoor work out plan
