New Delhi, June 13
Actor Gurmeet Choudhary, who is all geared up for his upcoming series 'Commander Karan Saxena' shared about the dietary restrictions that he has followed for the titular role, saying he eliminated processed foods, and sugary snacks, and junk food from his diet, and instead focused on lean proteins, complex carbohydrates, and healthy fats to fuel his body.

Gurmeet, who is known for his work in 'Ramayan', and 'Geet-Hui Sabse Parayi' told IANS: "Fitness and diet go together when it comes to physical training for any character. To play a commander role, I needed to be muscular, athletic, agile, and fast. To achieve this, I followed a strict diet that supported my intense training."

"I eliminated processed foods, sugary snacks, and junk food from my diet. Instead, I focused on lean proteins, complex carbohydrates, and healthy fats to fuel my body. Hydration was also crucial, so I ensured I drank plenty of water throughout the day. This disciplined approach was essential in helping me reach peak physical condition," he said.

While preparing for 'Commander Karan Saxena', I worked so hard, training morning, afternoon, and evening. Seeing the teaser on air now makes me feel proud of myself.
