    From fat to fit: Adnan Sami loses 15 kg

    Singer and music director Adnan Sami is on a weight-losing spree these days.

    Sami met trainer Prashant Sawant six months ago, after his knee operation, and told him he wanted to lose weight. Prashant also has clients like Shah Rukh Khan, Dino Morea, Anupama Verma, Hiten Tejwani and Gauri Pradhan, Amrita Rao, Ameesha Patel and Hemant Trivedi.

    It's a challenge

    Says Prashant, who runs the Body Sculptor gym in Juhu, "Ameesha had recommended me to Adnan. He met me before his knee operation, when he decided to lose weight.

    Adnan told me, 'You are like my doctor; whatever you tell me, I will do'. At Body Sculptor, we provide personalised fitness training. Whoever comes in, will walk out with a great perfectly-sculpted body.

    All Adnan wants to do, is lose weight. I made him understand that I will not leave him till he loses weight. It's like a challenge for me to make Adnan lose so much weight that he has the healthy and fit body of a 25-year-old - and he will."

    Food factor

    How much weight has Adnan lost? "He had lost around 15 kg. But because of his knee operation and subsequent travelling, he must have put some back on. I couldn't put him on a high-intensity training or diet immediately. You have to understand the person before you can do that.

    Adnan is very choosy about what he eats and I can't cut down on his eating habits. He believes more in training and exercising, than diet. I have given him a basic diet, cut down on carbs at night, and no protein supplements yet."

    Weighty matter

    What was the exercise regime charted out for the singer? "He gets tired of walking. Adnan is very regular with his workouts, and if in town, comes everyday, for an hour. He's very good with weights, and does a mixture of weights and cardio."

    Since Prashant has also been Shah Rukh Khan's trainer for the last four years, is he planning to make Adnan look as fit and muscular as SRK does today? "Both have very different body structures," says the trainer. "One is fat and the other is thin, and I design body-sculpting programmes from person to person. Right now, Adnan is losing weight."

    Sami wasn't available for comment, but his business manager, Rakesh Nath, said, "Yes, Adnan is losing weight because of health reasons. Right now, though, he's in Dubai."
