Anant Ambani and Radhika Merchant’s pre-wedding celebrations are currently underway in Gujarat’s Jamnagar. Almost everyone from the film industry is making a bee-line at the private and national airports to participate in the celebrations.

Amid all this frenzy, the latest pictures of Anant Ambani and Radhika Merchant have also started circulating on the web and that has surprised many web users.

Surprising weight loss journey of Anant Ambani

A few years ago, Anant Ambani was an overweight person who could hardly walk comfortably. Whenever people saw him in the stadium during the IPL matches of Mumbai Indians, they used to wonder how he could be so overweight. However, a couple of years ago Anant Ambani lost 108 kg weight, and a completely transformed version of him was seen by people.

His weight loss journey has been an inspiration for many who have been struggling to drop even a few kilos. It was celebrity fitness trainer Vinod Channa who was behind Anant’s huge body transformation. With a rigorous gym and weight regime, he helped Anant lose 108 kgs in just 18 months.

From walking 21 kilometers every day to eating small meals mostly made up of steamed/boiled vegetables, lentils, cottage cheese, sprouts, pulses, and only half a teaspoon of ghee, he made Anant stick to a very stern routine.

How did Anant Ambani regain his weight so fast?

When Anant lost all that weight he looked lean and fit. But the pictures from the pre-wedding celebrations show that he has once again put on a few kilos and fans are wondering how he can regain so much weight so fast even after following a strict diet.

Times Now reported that Nita Ambani during an interview in 2017 discussed the weight issues of Anant Ambani and said that Anant had severe asthma which is why he was given steroids, many times leading to weight gain. The owner of Mumbai Indians said, “Anant was highly asthmatic so we had to put him on a lot of steroids. He suffers from obesity. Hence, the treatment from asthma resulted in a lot of weight gain.”

Can Steroids lead to weight gain?

According to a leading health site, steroids can cause weight gain. Asthma affects thousands of people globally causing inflammation in the nasal passage and narrowing of the airways. It leads to troubling symptoms like coughing, trouble breathing, and wheezing. Since there is no ultimate cure for this condition, healthcare experts try to manage it through treatments like steroids and inhalers.

The symptoms of asthma make it difficult for the person to stay active or exercise. Moreover, when you are given steroids for a long time, your hunger and cravings increase leading to weight gain. Steroids also cause other problems like fluid retention, triggering fat storage, disturbed metabolism, and an increase in fat around the belly areas. Thus, all this can lead to weight gain in asthma patients.
