This Man Had Biryani Thrice A Day For 2 Whole Months And Managed To Lose Weight. Unbelievable

by Isha Jalan

If someone told you that you could lose weight despite having biryani thrice a day, you would laugh and call him/her a fool. Right? Well, then what would you say to 23-year-old Hyderabad lad Nishanth Appari who has done just that! Don't believe us? Have a look for yourself:

Can't believe your eyes, right? We couldn't either. So, what's the catch, you wonder. There definitely has to be one. Well, the catch is that there isn't any. Nishanth ate chicken biryani thrice a day for 50 days straight and did not gain a single pound. On the contrary, as you can see, he now has a washboard stomach!

In an exclusive interview with ScoopWhoop, Nishanth shares the secret behind his diet, why he decided to follow it and the results.

The purpose

"Don't be too hard on yourself. Giving in to your guilty pleasures once in a while is absolutely okay," says Appari.

The Biryani Experiment

A certified personal trainer from the America Council on Exercise, Appari ate as many as 50 packets of biryani over a 60-day period and lost almost three kgs and 2 inches.

He spent around Rs 5,000 on the experiment.

Body measurements

Nishanth's measurements before he started the diet:

Shoulder – 43″Chest – 37″Waist – 35″Hips – 41″Biceps (L) – 13″Biceps (R) – 13″Quads (L) – 22″Quads (R) – 21.5″Body weight - 83.0 kgs

After completing the diet:

Shoulder – 46″ (up by 3″)Chest – 38″ (up by 1″)Waist – 33″ (down by 2″)Hips – 40″ (down by 1″)Biceps (L) – 13.5″ (up by 0.5″)Biceps (R) – 13.5″ (up by 0.5″)Quads (L) – 22.5″ (up by 0.5″)Quads (R) – 21″ (down by 0.5″)Body Weight – 81.2 kgs

Did he workout all this while and did he eat only biryani?

Of course, he did! The workout consisted mainly of compound movements mostly for the upper body. "I hardly trained my legs during the experiment," he shared.  Nishanth says after a few days of starting the diet, he craved for more junk food and finally gave in to the guilt. So basically, he ended up having a lot of junk food as well.

But didn't he get bored? And what was the point

Nishanth had biryani again a week after the experiment ended and still loves his biryani. About the purpose of the experiment, he says, "I did not do this experiment to show that you can survive on junk food alone and to throw away all the healthy food! I would still advise everyone to eat healthy food to avoid any deficiencies. However, the whole point of the experiment was to show you that the fear of eating certain foods is unfounded. I ate total junk and still lost weight. You certainly are going to be okay eating junk food every now and then."

Nishanth's fitness mantra

Nishanth has deduced from the experiment that quantity matters over quality. He says, "One can put on weight even by eating the healthiest food in excess and lose weight even after eating the most unhealthy food."
