Now CM Fadnavis on weight loss spree, loses 13 kg in 3 months!


It appears shedding weight is the trend running hot among corporates and politicos! ‘How many Kgs in how many months’ appears to be the mantra of the season! After Mukesh Ambani’s son Anant surprised one and all with his lean and thin look, its time for Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis to deliver a considerable change in his physical appearance.

Sources revealed that Fadnavis has been on a weight loss spree and managed to shed 18 kg in just three months. He has been advised to have three meals a day that includes a balance of proteins and fats, minimised carbohydrates and fibre.

Alocal daily in Mumbai reported that when Fadnavis consulted a doctor in December last year, his weight was nearly 122 kg, but after following a disciplined routine his weight has now dropped down to 104 kg. The routine reportedly includes a mix of medicines to enhance metabolism, a proper diet and a weekly two-hour regimen.

“His evaluation went on for two months; we learnt his metabolism was flexible and could be enhanced by medical intervention. We started him on the medicines which had a collateral result, in clearing his problem of sugar intolerance,” his doctor, Jayashree Todkar, a metabolic and bariatric surgeon told the tabloid.

The Maharashtra chief minister’s wife Amruta added, “He had lost weight earlier but gained it again due to work pressure and erratic schedule. After I started my weight loss programme and lost about 5-6 kg, he was inspired.”
Though the chief minister has been allowed to have a cup of tea a day, junk food is a strict no-no.
