In a recent interview, Manoj Bajpayee reveals that he has stopped taking dinner for the last 13-14 years and he is very happy with the results. The Family Man actor also talked about how he was influenced by his grandfather’s fitness.
He said, “Sometimes, I do take a few bites here and there, but 13-14 saal ho gaye. I realised mere grandfather bahut duble-patle the aur bahut hi fit rehte the hamesha. Toh I thought let me follow what he used to eat. Fir woh shuru jab maine kiya then mera wazan control hona shuru hua. Meine kaafi energetic aur healthy feel karna shuru kar diya. Then, that was the time I decided I will stick with this.”
He further said, “Phir usme tweaking ki maine… fasting kabhi 12 ghante ka kabhi 14 ghante ka; then raat ka dinner dheere dheere hatana shuru kiya. Even the doctor said it is good to have an early dinner, otherwise, the food is left in the belly. It got me a little scared. So, I stopped eating my dinner completely. After lunch, the kitchen is non-operational. It only operates when our daughter is back from the hostel.”
However, it was not easy initially as the National Film Awards actor stated, “For one week, I had a very hard time. What I used to do is, eat about two healthy biscuits when I felt hungry; and drink a lot of water. However, since I was used to having dinner — a big meal, that too late at night — I got intense evening hunger pangs. It is a lifestyle that got created. Today, it is called intermittent (fasting), but I have been doing it for many years.”
