Ram's fitness journey started two years ago when he decided to become fit before turning 45 on September 1 this year.
He was so determined that he chose to take a break from his work to focus on this.
The actor followed a strict exercise routine, and worked out twice a day.
In the morning, he did an hour of heavy-weight training, empty stomach.
"I eat limited food during a period of 8 hours"
His second shift at the gym would be just before hitting the sheets. He then used to do an intense cardio workout.
He also restricted his food intake to only 8 hours, keeping a close check on his calories, and for the rest of 16 hours, he won't consume anything.
"I eat limited food during a period of 8 hours," the actor confirmed.
His wife Gautami proved to be Ram's biggest motivation
Ram also ditched dairy products, oil, meat and other carbohydrates-rich food.
"I was 130kgs when I started, and I want to lose another 25-30kgs," he told Mumbai Mirror.
It was certainly a difficult journey for him, but his wife Gautami Kapoor proved to be his biggest motivation.
He asserted that since she is extremely fit, he also wanted to be as healthy as her.
I want to get healthier for my children: Ram
While Gautami inspired him, it was his two kids that pushed him.
"I just want to get healthier for my children. I obviously am not doing this to look younger. I don't need to change the way I look. But there comes a time in your life when you want to do things for your children. I am doing just that," he said.
