From choosing the most unconventional roles to his impeccable style sense and fine acting chops, Saif Ali Khan makes sure he is never out of media's limelight. At 48, Saif Ali Khan is inarguably one of the fittest actors in town too. Here are some steal-worthy secrets you can put to use.
#His Love For Yoga
You would be surprised to know that Saif practices yoga because of wife Kareena Kapoor's penchant for the ancient discipline. Yoga is an intrinsic part of both Saif and Kareena's fitness regimen. Saif hits the gym too and his regimen is largely dependent upon his projects. He changes his regime depending upon the role he is playing. He starts his regimen with light warm-ups, which is followed by stretching and skipping.
#Pressed For Time? Go For A Walk
In his interview to a leading film magazine, Saif has mentioned how walking has become an indispensable part of his fitness routine. Whenever he is pressed for time, he goes for a good round of walk, which also works as great stress buster for the actor. Saif also enjoys playing sports. Media has often caught him after his squash and tennis sessions with children, Sara and Ibrahim.
#Love For Ghar Ka Khana
Saif loves ghar ka khana. In one of the press events, Kareena revealed that the couple loves eating very simple Indian ghar ka khana(home-cooked food). Saif likes bhindi, while Kareena is a fan of lauki.
#Know The Importance Of Food
Actor Saif Ali Khan, who was present at the launch of nutritionist Rujuta Diwekar's new book 'Indian Super Foods: Change The Way You Eat' in Mumbai, revealed that people today often have many misconceptions about dieting. They equate it to not eating, which is not the right way to go about things. You can eat food you like and still feel great about it. Moreover, you can lose weight at the same time. In fact, the best thing about eating the right kind of food is that you mentally feel good about it, which eventually improves the quality of your life.
#Also Know When To Stop
In his Nutritionist Rujuta Diwekar's documentary Indian Food Wisdom & Art of Eating Right, Saif revealed the importance of having a sense of control, not just in the diet but in our minds. "Something like stop eating just before you get full. And, that's the most difficult time to stop eating. You have to know that even if you don't feel it."
#Be True To Your Schedule
Saif also understands the value of sticking to one's routine. His gym and yoga sessions and meal timings should be on point. He knows when he feels cranky before the gym, it could be because of the fact that he has not eaten well or eaten on time. He is much calmer when things are in place, Saif revealed in the documentary.
Here's wishing Saif a very happy birthday! May you get to enjoy all your favourite treats for the day!
