From looking ripped to looking thin, actor Randeep Hooda has taken up multiple looks in his films and he says his meals depend a lot on what character is he taking up next.

“My fitness regime depends on what role I am playing. Sometimes it is just black coffee. For Do Lafzo ki Kahaani (2016) I had to take a lot of supplements to build a prize fighter’s body, it was very hard with lots of time in the gym. It would have gone waste had I not taken the right kind of nutrition along with it,” says Randeep, who was recently in the Capital to launch nutrition supplement chain Body Building India’s latest initiative, which also includes a “pay per visit” gym called gym99.

The actor feels that in India, we don’t have enough educational exposure when it comes to understanding the right kind of nutrition required for the body.

“We need structured and authentic way to take care of our bodies. There is a lack of education in nutrition. It should not be restricted to depending on body-builders. The way we eat out foods is not the healthiest of combinations and Indian food is indulgent of such things. A lot of people in our country are vegetarians and many body building products don’t cater to that, which stops people from getting the right nutrition,” he says.
