Vegan Vidyut Shatters Myths On Animal Protein
Fit actor Vidyut Jammwal, known for his daredevil stunts and flawless action sequences, attributes his chiselled body to his vegan lifestyle and workout routine.
Vegans are vegetarians who eat only fully plant-derived foods, leaving those derived from animals - such as milk and eggs, which are stolen from exploited cows and chickens, respectively - off their plates, the animal rights organisation said.
"When people ask me where I get my protein from, I tell them (I get it from) exactly (the same place that) herbivorous animals like elephants, horses, and rhinos do: plants," said Vidyut. "Being vegan helps me keep fit. I love the way I feel," he added.
The actor is well-known for leading a disciplined life. He avoids aerated drinks and abstaining from smoking. Being a supporter of PETA, Jammwal always sticks to a vegan diet, which according to him keeps him healthier and mentally active.
Instead of dieting, he prefers to have the right mix of protein, carbohydrates, and fats. He does not mind taking foods with sugar or salt, as he believes that being fit and healthy is more important. To improve his metabolism rate, Jammwal breaks his diet into 6 meals a day.
