"2 Hours a Day, 6 Days a Week": Mr Dubai Zayed Khan Reveals his INTENSE Workout Regimen & Diet

He is arguably the hunkiest desi boy in town. Allahabad-born Zayed Khan, a wannabe actor and fitness trainer could have pursued any career he wanted to but hailing from a family where health and fitness were a part of life, it was perhaps natural he would veer towards it. His father (a businessman who has also acted in over 20 movies as a character actor) as well as his brothers were into body building and it didn’t take long for Zayed to get inspired. Well, all that hard work certainly paid off as he was recently crowned Mr Dubai at an event held in the city a few weeks ago.

Zayed, who is naturally over the moon with his victory has now bigger plans to get into modelling and acting. And why shouldn’t he? With a body like that and an attitude to match, the glamour industry should be his calling! Check out these pics…

However, getting this drool worthy physique wasn’t an easy task. Zayed says he first started working out in college at the gym and later, in Dubai, he did a level 3 certification course from Phoenix Academy in the UK. His education did not suffer as he did his MBA and then pursued a career as a real estate professional in Dubai. But nothing came in the way of his workout.

DIET

If fitness is 80 per cent diet and 20 per cent exercise, as some say, Zayed surely takes care of what he eats - 4-5 meals in a day because of his goals and current assignments comprising protein, Fibres, Good Fat, Complex carbohydrates. The bottom-line: high protein and low carb regimen.

MEAL 1

2 Scoops Whey Protein
4 Egg whites, 2 whole eggs (scrambled in olive oil or boiled)
5 almonds
1 cup green tea
1 chromium picolinate, I calcium tablet, 1 multivitamin

MEAL 2

Half avocado
150 gm chicken (grilled or curried)
I cup spinach or brocolli

MEAL 4

2 scoop whey protein
100 gm chicken breast

With such a rigorous schedule, it’s no wonder he has a body that looks like THIS:

His vital stats read as: 6 feet, a chest of 42 inches, waist size of 29 inches, biceps of 16 inches. It was this that the judges at the contest were impressed by and crowned him Mr Dubai. Zayed now wants to first walk for renowned international designers for their fashion shows and then to compete for Mr World 2018. After winning the title he wants to enter the movies and also hopes to open his own gym in his city.
