Satish Kaushik goes on a detox diet

Satish Kaushik

Juggling filmmaking and acting is no mean feat. And Satish Kaushik experienced it again, recently. The seasoned actor, who made headlines for shedding 25 kg with a disciplined lifestyle and food habits last year, had a tough time sustaining his low-calorie diet while filming his upcoming production, Kaagaz, in Sitapur (near Lucknow), Uttar Pradesh.

Now, he took up a detox diet to return in shape because he is starting his next acting venture. A source close to Kaushik says, “The Sitapur schedule lasted over 50 days. Since winter was setting in, it became increasingly difficult for everyone, including the makers and cast, to sustain a healthy lifestyle. Winter is that time of the year in North India when everyone enjoys gorging on delectable varieties.

Though he tried a lot, Satish also couldn’t pull off the kind of eating discipline that he ensures otherwise. He ended up putting on a few kilos.” The source adds that Kaushik has ditched sweets and carbs completely in order to get back to his fit avatar. When contacted, the actor-filmmaker said, “My diet now comprises fruits and veggies. I consume high-protein items and avoid sugar completely. I am sure that I will shed the extra kilos before hitting the sets of my next.”
