In an interview, Kriti Kharbanda shared how she stays in shape. Apart from living an active lifestyle, she also maintains a healthy figure through proper nutrition. Nonetheless, she doesn’t follow a strict diet. “I just make sure that I eat enough to keep me happy. I think that’s super important. Sometimes, when we go on a diet, we forget that the mind needs to be happy too,” said the actress. “I avoid carbs as much as possible and avoid eating oily stuff. I don’t mind ghee and butter though,” she added.
The actress has also confessed to trying crash diets. “Crash diets are not the best way. Your body is accustomed to a certain lifestyle. It is absolutely wrong to put your body through something that is so alien to it,” shared the actress. “I have also tried the ketogenic diet. It worked really well for me. I saw some great results in three months. But I realised that I was stressing my body out.”
