John Abraham’s Diet Tips

According to him for achieving the desired look, you need to focus more on nutrition part than training. Only 40% is rely on training part the remaining 60% depends entirely on your diet part. Without following proper diet you can’t achieve your fitness goal.

Balance is the key:

Your diet should be rich in protein and carbohydrates. For getting all essential nutrients it is recommended to include more veggies and fruits. The trick lies on the carb balance not on limiting nutrients.


Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Even in tight shooting schedule John find time to have a protein rich breakfast. You may add egg whites for protein, which is a BCCA rich food. It will help you to recover from muscle soreness. Including fruits in breakfast is also a healthy way to get good fructose.

Fuel your body:

In order to cope up with intense workout routine you should fuel your body. Lack of nutrients, protein etc. may leads to injury. A nutritious post workout meal is a must.

Cut carbs tactically:

You don’t need to cut carbs entirely to achieve that aesthetic look. Everybody loves carbs. Especially in Indian diet it is very difficult to avoid them. You can take them early in the day so you will get whole day to burn that calories.

Water Intake:

Water is essential for muscle building and its maintenance. It will also help your skin and hair health. Taking extra water can also boost calorie burning, helping you to lose some extra weight.

Supplementation part:

For achieving the physique in Force 2 he consumed about 25 to 30 egg whites per day. But now he dropped to a tenth of that. Since John does not eat meat, for protein he entirely depends on fish and egg whites. As a supplement John prefers whey protein and protein bars.

Fight your weakness:

Prefer slow and steady progress:

In long run slow and steady progress wins the race. If you try to put muscle mass so quickly or try for rapid fat lose, the chances for joint injuries and hormonal imbalance will be higher. So it is better to focus on low and steady progress.

Never forget about your legs:

Everybody hates training legs. First thing you should remember that if you train large muscle groups (legs) your testosterone levels shoots up. That is you can never have a good physique without good legs.

Change your workout plan frequently:

As you progress with a certain workout plan for several months, your body will get adapted to the way of training. As a result you will not see any results. So after few months of training you should change your workout plan. The fundamental idea is that you should keep your body guessing as it adapts to your workout routine.

Note: Depending on the role celebrities tend to change their diet plan and workout routine frequently.
