“Fitness is a lifestyle for me that revolves around food” says leading model Karan “KO” Oberoi
Being a food blogger, I have been following different food blogs, including Times food channel from Times of India Group. Recently I saw a few videos of India’s leading model Karan Oberoi who is also known among people by his nick name and competitive initials ‘KO’. Karan is one of the very few models in the country who are successful. Karan is not just the most followed model on Instagram, Facebook but also someone who has won few awards along his creditable journey of modelling. Karan has walked the ramp for some of the biggest fashion designers and shot for some of the existing fashion and fitness brands. Karan’s fan following includes majority of young females and teenage boys. Young boys want to have a body like him that defines him nothing short of a youth icon.
In Times food video, he was asked several questions regarding being leading fitness model how KO maintains his physique and his answer was -fitness is a lifestyle for him and it all depends upon what you eat, what you eat is what you become. According to KO, to have a body like him, 70 percent depends upon what sort of food your intake and 30 percent is your hard work. If you can’t control your diet you can never have a body like a Greek god.
Karan also likes to cook food as he understands that food cooked at home is far healthier and more satisfactory. Few years back he experimented with a dish cooked with oats, egg whites, boiled chicken and blanch spinach that he shared on his video. Karan also advices every young man to stay away from smoking, drinking alcohol and all to stay away from all sort of drugs. He also advices to stay away from sugary, salty and fried foods. He insists, to look fit is not an easy job that can only be developed by improving your eating habits and living in disciplinary food habits.
