Youth dancing sensation, choreographer and actor Kunwar Amar Singh has joined the fitness bandwagon and taken to extreme step of turning non-vegetarian. He says, “I have recently started working out and my trainer had been after me to increase my intake of protein which wasn’t enough due to my vegetarian diet. Hence, I had to start eating eggs and chicken as these items are high in protein and really help when you are working out.”
It sure isn’t easy to take the difficult route of turning into a non-vegetarian. “I was brought up as a pure vegetarian so initially I would just gulp down chicken but gradually got used to it. It used to be difficult but I’ve now I’ve gotten used to it,” he adds.
