From a plump kid to a hot diva, Sonakshi Sinha has now become a fitness icon for many. Sedentary lifestyle, lack of exercise and love for junk food were the main reasons behind her plump figure. But, with strenuous workout and diet plan, she got rid of her extra weight, “It was a combination of proper diet and vigorous exercise that got me to the shape I am in now,” she says.
People’s criticism regarding her weight “never really bothered” Sonakshi when she was a kid, as the drive to lose it “didn’t come from within.” But, once her inner voice provoked her, she was all set to bid farewell to her extra weight. “If it hadn’t come from within, I wouldn’t have done it,” she adds. And thus, she began her journey to lose weight.
Like many people, Sonakshi too hated gym and knew that training “wasn’t going to be easy”. But, once she made up her mind to get into shape, “there was no looking back” after that. Sonakshi says,
It was not easy at all for somebody like me. I am the kind of person who hates the gym. I am allergic to the gym. I want to run away from it. But I think once I put my mind to something, I go out and achieve it, and I guess I did that.
The 27-year-old star even hired Shahid Kapoor’s trainer to tone down her body.
Her workout routine consists of:
- Cardio exercises, cycling, and functional and weight training.
- Swimming and playing tennis.
- Visiting gym twice a day.
- Hot yoga and spinning for more flexibility.
Sonakshi Sinha’s diet plan:
She said in one of her interviews,
Food is my first love. I never followed a diet that makes me cranky and unhappy. I believe I work too hard to deprive myself of the one thing I love the most- food! I eat regular food, but in lesser quantities than before. Eating small meals every 2 hours helps in keeping up the metabolism all day. I even binge sometimes. Who’s gonna stop me when there’s a brownie right in front of my eyes? But if I do, an extra 20 minutes on the treadmill is a must.
She also makes sure to drink plenty of water to keep herself hydrated. Here is the diet plan, which she follows:
- Breakfast: Cereal and milk with whole wheat toast.
- Mid-morning: Some dry fruits and a cup of green tea.
- Lunch: Homemade roti and sabzi with salad.
- Evening: A fruit or a cup of green tea.
- Dinner: She eats early and takes dal, sabzi, chicken, and fish. She does not take any carbohydrates after 6 pm.
Surprisingly, the actress never checks on her weight,
“I don’t know how many kilos I lost, I don’t get on the scale. As long as I am feeling fit and I can feel myself toning up, looking thinner, then scale doesn’t really matter.”
Sonakshi has to advice,
Don’t expect results overnight. It took you months or years to pile on the kilos, what makes you think it will be gone in a few days? It is important to condition your mind and be patient during the process. Rather than dwelling on how much more you have to achieve, think of how far you have already come.
