The 35-year-old actress maintains a healthy and fit body by sticking to a clean diet plan. She has also a very simple outlook when it comes to health and fitness. She said: “I don’t chase the perfect figure. I’d rather focus on staying and eating healthy. I prefer Indian food because it’s a balanced diet. I pick grilled eats over junk.” She also got candid about her diet plan. She revealed:
“I start my day with a glass of orange juice — it’s rich in vitamin C, good for the skin and helps burn fat. After an hour, I have a masala omelette made from two egg whites, a bowl of porridge and a paratha. Between lunch and breakfast, I munch on fruit.” She added: “Lunch is usually grilled fish with two chapatis, sabzi and daal. I dig Malabar, Andhra and Goan fish curry. I enjoy most vegetables but I am not a fan of karela. And I stay away from red meat.” She also observes a healthy eating habit at night. She said: “I like having an evening snack of sprout or vegetable salad along with nuts. My mother’s chana cutlets, I love. I make sure I eat dinner by 7.30 pm since the body’s metabolism slows down late at night, and food is stored as fat.”
