"Those asking how I came down from 102 Kg's to 71 kg in four months between October of 99 & March of 2000. Key is a daily one hour workout and no Carbs for dinner. I am 81 Kg again," tweeted the Anandpur Sahib MP, sharing his fitness mantra.

The queries surfaced after Pawan Dewan, general secretary in the Punjab Congress unit, posted a throwback photograph on Twitter yesterday showing a much-younger and heavier Mr Tewari with Congress members. Party president Sonia Gandhi is seen seated at the centre.
"Congratulations For Foundation Day Indian Youth Congress. 21 years Old picture with Smt Sonia Gandhi ji president indian national congress and @ManishTewari ji," Mr Dewan tweeted, sharing the photograph.
Retweeting the post, Mr Tewari wrote, "This was in Chandigarh in December 1998 . I was then National President of @IYC -literally @INCIndia President Mrs Sonia Gandhi's first political appointee. I was also 100 kg or above ( Extreme Right) . A street fighting pre-requisite."
Several Twitter users were amazed by the transformation and lauded the Congress MP for his fitness regime.
Mr Tewari served as national president of Congress's student wing, National Student Union of India, from 1988-93. He later went on to lead the Indian Youth Congress from 1998-2000. He was elected to Lok Sabha in 2009 and elevated as the Minister for Information and Broadcasting in 2012.
