He admires Akshay Kumar for his fitness regimen. But is that enough to get a drool-worthy body? The actor shares his fitness mantras with Rajul Hegde

Mohit Mallik of Doli Armaan Ki is so passionate about fitness that he never misses his gym schedule. He doesn't smoke or drink and has a great body.

Fitness secret

I workout everyday for minimum 45 minutes and there is no rest day for me. I wake up in the morning, have a cup of coffee and go for a 30-minute jog. After the pack up I come home, freshen up and straight away head to the gym at 10 pm.

I have a personal trainer and I mainly focus on one body part each day: legs, shoulder, chest or back and repeat.

At times due to late night shoots if I cannot workout then I take my building’s steps. I live on the seventh floor. What I do is take the steps to go up and get down by lift.

I start the lift and try to reach the seventh floor by steps before the lift reaches. I do his at least 10 times.

Also I do functional training like skipping or running on the road in my locality (Lokhandwala, Andheri) in Mumbai.

I used to play cricket a lot earlier but now I don’t get the time due to hectic shooting schedule.

Diet

My basic rule is to avoid fried foods and sugar.

I am not completely off sugar, but I avoid additional intake.

Sometimes I gorge on dark chocolates or cheese but I burn it out.

I am very particular about my meals and eat healthy. I have dinner before 8 pm. I eat every two hours and in right proportions.

Eat on time, after every two hours (ideally) as it keeps your BMR (basal metabolic rate) high.

I don’t want to have six-pack-abs body as I am working in a daily soap. Also my character Samrat doesn’t need that kind of body.

Breakfast

Between 7.30 and 8 am egg is a must in my diet.

I eat 2 slices of toasted brown /multi grain bread with an omelette made of 6 egg whites.

Carrot or pomegranate juice and two dates are compulsory because this combination is a powerhouse package with much-needed minerals and energy to help you stay fit and healthy.

After 2 hours I eat oats (daliya) with handful of protein powder and nuts.

At noon I have any kind of fruit and green tea.
