Sonam Kapoor gained a lot of weight while she was studying in Singapore for two years. And since she never thought of joining the film industry, she never cared about her weight. But things changed when she was offered the lead role in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s film, Saawariya. Although the actress started losing weight before the offer was made, once she got the film, she went on a strict diet plan and workout regime and ended up losing 35 kilos.
The actress is most grateful to her mother for helping her in losing weight:
“In all fairness, it was my mother who helped me get rid of my excess weight. The first thing she did was to keep me off the stuff I was so fond of as a teenager- chocolates, ice creams, fried foods and sweets.”
Sonam went through rigorous workout session with weight trainers Shervir and Monisha, pilates teacher Yasmin Karachiwala, and general fitness trainer Zarine Watson. She even did power yoga and artistic yoga with Bharat Thakur, and got trained in Kathak to get a toned body. And even today, she follows the same routine and exercises. Also, she tries different workouts every day in order to keep motivation high to burn more calories.
Here is her exercise routine:
Looking at her slim figure, everyone assumes that she must be starving herself. But the self-confessed foodie doesn’t believe in dieting. Rather, she eats everything in moderation, even ‘chocolates’. She says:
"Yeah, looking at my figure people often assume that I don't eat much. On the contrary, I eat every two hours. Since my day is packed with strenuous physical activity- shooting, swimming or dancing- I never allow myself to go hungry for too long. If I feel peckish, I snack on nuts and dry fruits."
Also, she drinks plenty of fluids throughout the day to stay hydrated and keep her energy levels high. When it comes to silent killer like salt and sugar, she plays safe by consuming them in moderation. She prefers natural sugar and seasoning to add taste in her food.
Her diet plan is as follows:
Breakfast: Oatmeal and fruits.
Post workout snack: Brown bread with egg whites or protein shake with juice.
Lunch: Dal, sabzi, one ragi roti, salad and a piece of chicken or fish.
Evening snack: High-fibre crackers with chicken cold cuts or egg whites.
Dinner: Soup, salad and a piece of chicken or fish.
She followed this diet plan for a year and got stunning results. Apart from this, she always carries an apple, or sandwich, or health bars, to satisfy her hunger without piling on excess calories while travelling.
