My breakfast: Breakfast is a very important part of every day, it has to be
filling and high on proteins as after a strenuous workout we would need heavy

My lunch: 2 chapatis, 1 bowl of dal, a portion of Indian curry, a portion of
salad and a bowl curd

have anything post that or 3 hours before sleep.

What shape do you see yourself 10 years down the line? I believe that my

fitness levels are very low and drastic measures need to be taken to rectify the
