Actor Manish Paul is a popular face in the TV and film industry.

Manish Paul has always had a lean physique. But the actor gained a lot of weight last year when he visited the US for a month. “When my trainer met me, he was very upset to see me in such a bad shape,” says the actor. Vishwas Pandey, the director of his next film, wanted Manish to sport a muscular look for a sequence. So Manish decided to work towards getting the right physique.

“Since I had already gained weight, my trainer asked me to put on some more weight to further define and cut it into muscles. I was on the weight gain spree from July to September last year. But since I wore suits, people couldn’t make out that I had gained so much weight,” says Manish, adding that it was between October and January that he trained hard to get the new ripped look.

Manish Paul was 89 kgs earlier (inset). Now, post is beach training sessions, he weighs 75 kgs.

The actor followed a fitness training programme for four months. “I lost 15kg and did workouts suggested by my trainer on the beach, as it offers more resistance. I have successfully turned my body fat into muscles. I am really happy with the results. I will shoot a shirtless scene for the film,” says Manish.

The actor was almost 89kgs back then and now weighs 75. He had to follow a rigorous regime of work out and diet together. Manish says, “My trainer had put me on a very low carb diet, high on protein- including chicken, salads and protein shakes. I was completely off sweets and aerated drinks. The regime has become a part of my life now and has become a wonderful experience and changed me a lot. I am very happy about my current physique and wish to maintain it.”
