Iqbal using Ramazan fast to get leaner

Mumbai: TV actor Iqbal Khan is using the Ramzan period for getting a leaner and fitter look with a knock-out diet and workout plan.

"Ramzan with its day-time fasting is the ideal time to get in shape. With practically no carbs during the day and a good helping of the protein-rich Chicken Biryani after sunset, I am pretty confident I`ll get leaner and fitter along with my strenuous workouts," said the 30-year-old actor.

With his shoot for Zee`s `Sanjog Se Bani Sangini` often running into late hours, Iqbal has also invested in a membership at a popular gym in suburban Bandra that stays open 24 hours.

At ungodly hours like 2 am when the rest of Mumbai is fast asleep, the groovy hunk works up a sweat at the gym before hitting the sack.
