From obese to ripped: Check out Amit Sidhwani’s 6-pack before and after pics

By Vince Del Monte, WBFF Pro Fitness Model, Certified Fitness Trainer and Nutritionist and author of No Nonsense Muscle Building.

Does This Guy Look Like India’s Latest Cover Model For Men’s Health?

“I want to thank you as i have achieved one of my life goals of being featured as cover Boy in India’s largest Health Magazine – “Men’s Health”. I purchased and followed your 6 pack abs quest program for 4 months religiously n got my 6 pack ab sheet. I reduced from 18% body fat to 2.9 % body fat to be shoot ready. I was obese since birth and by the time i finished high school i was hefty 119 kgs. with waistline of 44 inches but i started jogging and reduced my size to 85 kgs. in 9 months but still six pack was evasive and due to constant slow and steady cardio my metabolism went sluggush.

That time my body fat was 18 % and i hit the plateau. Then, i came to know about your program. I again want to put on this on record, without your training n diet principles it would have been impossible for me.”

Amit Sidhwani
India

Hard To Believe This Is The Same Guy, Eh?


Vince: How old were you in the first before picture and how much did you weigh?  Same question for the 2nd and 3rd picture?

Amit: In First before Picture i aged 23 years weighing 119 kgs, 2nd before Picture 25 years weighing 82 kgs, and finally ripped pIctures aged 26 yrs weighing 72 Kgs. Though i lost   initial 35 kgs in first 9 months only with just slow and steady cardio accompanied with low carb n low protein diet, just high on roughage which actually made me smaller n pale.

Amit, 23 yrs old and 119 kgs! Oh my.


Vince: What was the hardest thing about being obese as a young guy?

Amit: To be honest, the hardest things was getting hooked up, ha ha ha. Yes, in all honesty, i had no luck with girls till i was obese but once i was ripped i made sure to more  than compensate the long draught.  ha ha…

Also, the hardest thing was – even once you decide you have to shed few pounds, since there is lot of nuisance information on  health and fitness all around us which can severely hinder our fat loss process. Actually, all the motivation can be drained away, if during the first few days of fat loss streak you  don’t see results irrespective of putting your efforts. So its very important to be informed correctly and get guidance from the expert to get the results and keep yourself motivated.

Vince: What forms of diet and exercise did you try to reduce your weight?

Amit: Initially, to shed first 30 – 35 pounds i use to do slow and steady jogging for 10 kms. a day on lakeside. And diet was drastically restricted on all three components – Carbs,  Protein and fats but high on Roughage. It just made me smaller with no sign of muscle on my body. After reaching 82 kgs, i hit the plateau.

Then, i started Vinny’s Six Pack Ab Quest Program and incorporated the super sexy technique of Super setting and started 6 meals a day with balanced ratio of Carbs, Proteins and Fat, 45 :40 :15. Source of  carbs: White oats, Yams, Fruits n lots of leafy veggies, Source of Lean Protein – Chicken Breasts, Tuna, Egg Whites and Whole Eggs, Skim Milk Cheddar Cheese, Soya &  Source of Fat –  Egg Yolks, Peanuts and extra virgin olive oil.

Amit, 25 yrs old and 82 kgs


Vince: What was the “moment” when you said, “Enough is enough… I’m transforming to a new person?”

Amit: Well, during one of the festive season, my elder brother (who is like father to me) gave me money to get new clothes. Since my waistline was 44 inches, i could not get trousers  of my waistline in the whole city. That was it, i went back to my brother and gave him money back and told him within a year i will sport a waistline of 32 inches in next 12  months. and guess what, within 9 months, i achieved it and bought clothes which i always wanted for myself.

Vince: What was your mindset before making the commitment?  What was your attitude towards transforming your body?

Amit: I had the reason why i want to loose weight, to write off my critics, to have girls in my life, to sport fashionable clothes and to be example for others. Secondly, I decided, come  what may, i will loose  all the unwanted fat and get my dream physique no matter what. During entire process, i was positive about my health goal, it didn’t bother me what  others thought about my goals. i remember one of my close family member shunning it out completely and mocked at my goal of being a cover boy for the top health magazine  of India. But trust me, When i did it and showed it to that person, the sense of achievement i felt is just inexplicable.

Amit 27 yrs old and 72 kg. Look out ladies!

Vince: How did my program, Your Six Pack Quest, make a difference?

Amit: Vinny, I can’t thank you enough for what difference does your Six Pack Quest Program made in achieving my Health Goals. i mean the technique of Super setting is highly result  oriented. And the best part is, when i perform it in the gym, i see people turning their heads to me with their Jaw dropping down towards their toe.

Your program is very  comprehensive as well giving all the insights on Exercise Regimen, Diet Plan , Lifestyle Plan, How to be Shoot Ready, Motivation Plan and every other thing what one needs to  loose fat and reach his health goal. Not to mention, the videos play a significant role in learning the proper techniques and form what other programs do not offer. Once Again,  Thanks Vince !

Vince: Tell us about the training you followed to drop from 18% to under 5%?
Amit: As you say, If you want to be like an athlete, you got to be like an athlete, live like an athlete. I use to hit the gym 6 days a week, Three days of Weights and three days of cardio  and abs, alternating each other.
I use to start my workout, with warming up by doing 2 sets of 5 different body weight exercise (15 reps each), like free squats, burpees,  mountain climbers, high knees, free lunges etc. Then, use to apply the technique of supersetting, one upper body part and one lower body part. Though, the workout is highly  demanding, but results are worth it.
I use to make sure the rest periods are shorter and tried to focus on full range of motion before progressing on speed and weights.  Mostly,  my cardio and abs sessions were in morning empty stomach (with half scoop of protein). There were two parameters i use to check to make sure my workout was intense, one  even my knickers should get drenched in sweat after workout and to drink atleast two litres of water during weight training session of 60 minutes.

Vince:  Tell us about the diet you followed?

Amit: I think Diet is the most vital element and highly important part of Fat Loss process. I use to eat 6 meals a day with deficit of 15 % from my daily maintainance calorie needs. The  best way to make sure the fastest fat loss process is to be on clean foods : Oats, Yams, Skim Milk, Leafy veggies, Chicken Breast, Tuna, Eggs, etc.

Also, during cutting last few  pounds, i stopped having protein supplements and substituting it with real foods like egg whites and tuna, post workout to get the advantage of metabolic surge from them.  Once every ten days i use to have my cheat meal to boost my metabolism. In the last meal of my day, i use to substitute the starchy carbs with fibrous carbs like lettuce, tomato, cucumber, Spinach, Brocolli etc.

Amit makes into India’s biggest fitness mag – Men’s Health!

Vince: You had a lot of loose stomach fat… now you have cover-model abs and look like a new man?  How’s life been since the transformation?

Amit:I feel a sense of fulfillment and joy !!!! I mean what more happiness can bring you anything than experiencing what you always wanted in life. Yes, I do feel highly confident and  not to sound pompous, but yes i claim not to be an ordinary guy. I feel great about myself and my self esteem has surged very high after being a Cover Boy. This result and  attention i get from people in family and friends and even strangers in the gym makes me feel special and gives me a reason to believe if i can do it in gym, surely i can do  equally wonderful in my personal, professional and spiritual life as well !

Vince: What are your career and life goals outside of the gym?

Amit: After working as Financial Planning Manager for three years, now i am pursuing where my passion lies. I am a Model and a budding Actor. And i know i am going to make it BIG  here as well, as i learned during my entire Body Transformation Phase – “Faith is the name of the Game.”

I made sure to answer all your questions honestly and if you need to ask further, please feel free for that.

Amit Sidwani,
India

  2. @Amit Sidhwani -

    WOW waita go Amit! Congratulations! I just have some quick question to ask you if it isnt too much trouble…..

    I have been doing HIT training and I used to be 100kgs (now I am 70 kgs) and I have lost about 10.5 inches off my waist but I seem to have hit a plateau …I now look like how you used to look like when you were 25 years old and 80kgs…

    My whole body is very lean specially my arms and chest but…………… my abs are still flabby…I am finding it hard to drop the last couple of pounds to start seeing my abs…(sight)

    Q1= can you please tell me what meal plan of Vince’s do you followed (healthy_1200.pdf) etc…

    Q2=what brand of protein powder did you take? and where can I get it?

    Q3= any other tips to reduce the last couple of pounds

  4. @ Sajid – Thanx bro !!!!

    Secondly, i can tell u abt my diet plan, but its just one missing link in a chain….proper diet need 2 b accompanied with regular and intense workouts and healthy lifestyle 2 bring out the great results !!!!

    Meal 1 – a bowl of skimmed milk with 50 -70 gms white oats and half scoop protien.

    Meal 2 – chicken breast + a yam + Salad

    Meal 3- 8 egg whites + 2 whole eggs + a cup of white oats

    Meal 4 – a can of tuna + a yam + Salad

    Meal 5 -a bowl of skimmed milk + 50 gms white oats + half scoop of protien + 8 almonds

    Meal 6 – 8 egg whites + 2 whole eggs + a bowl of spinach + seasonal salad

    Again, a word of caution, the above meal plan is generic and i cycle the foods and quantity also. Also, not to mention, pre and post workout meal is equally important to consider, like taking simple sugars and whey for quick absorbtion.
