Sonakshi Sinha’s Diet
Sonakshi also followed a strict diet for weight loss. “I eat small meals every three hours to keep me going.”
She got her motivation and guidance from her Dabangg co-star Salman Khan. “He saw potential in me and egged me on to lose weight. I would say his contribution was the highest as I started taking it seriously only after he told me to.”
So there you go. You have your own weight loss plan straight from a Bollywood actress who has lost weight and achieved what may seem to be the impossible for many girls keen to get in shape.
Here’s a brief fast weight loss plan that shows how to lose 30 pounds as fast as possible.
1. Keep a record of what you eat. When you look at your journal, you will see that mostly you are eating one type of food. Include a range of weight loss foods in your diet.
2. Drink lots of water. As a guide, divide your weight (in kg) by 8, and the resultant figure is the number of glasses you should drink. For example, if your weight is 72kgs, then you should drink 9 glasses of water.
3. Take some multivitamin tablets every day
4. Make sure you are eating one raw fruit and vegetable and some food that contains lean protein
Rapid Weight Loss Diet Plan
1. Exercise three times a week, half an hour for each workout. Avoid walking. If you have to walk, then walk briskly.
2. Drink plenty of fluid, mostly water. Avoid aerated drinks
3. Eat well: Have a balance of fruit, veggies and lean meat. Avoid fast food and eat red meat in moderation
4. Sleep well: It is absolutely important to sleep about 7 to 8 hours daily – sound sleep, that is. Too less or too much sleep can put body in a distressed mode.

Many people look up to Bollywood actors and dream to lose weight by following the secrets of Bollywood’s weight loss diets and exercise plan.
The Global Indian magazine has spoken with the personal trainers of some of the top Bollywood stars to develop this list of secrets of losing weight as followed by Bollywood stars.
Here are the top ways to lose weight.
At a recent reality show Aap Ki Adalat, a lady in the audience asked Salman Khan the secret of his six pack abs, so that she could get her husband to lose weight. Salman said, “Get him in a job which requires him to take off his shirt in public.” In other words, Salman was referring to the need of his job as a movie star to have the perfect body. That’s his motivation. That’s his need. What’s your motivation? Do you have a need to have lean body and flat belly? Find a strong need to lose weight.
Each one of us has a different preference for food. Some like chocolate, some like french fries and so on. But the desire to have junk is common to all of us. What’s your preference for junk food? Is it chocolate? Is it sweets? Find your poison and make sure you don’t have easy access to it. Don’t stuff your fridge with junk food. ‘Watch what you eat and don’t binge!’, says Neha Dhupia.
As the saying goes, eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dinner like a pauper. Bollywood celebrity John Abraham suggests a heavy breakfast. He starts his day with six egg whites.
He avoids egg yolk as it contains fat. He supplements egg whites with toast with butter, a few almonds and fresh fruit juice. He recommends a cup of tea for those who are not fond of juice.
Research shows that people who eat heavy breakfast fill fuller throughout the day and eat less food during the rest of the day. This helps in managing weight.
While traditionally we eat two large meals, Bollywood actors prefer to have small but more frequent meals. This fits well with your busy and erratic schedule. It also provides enough energy to carry on with their long work-hours.
Take Kareena Kapoor for example. She starts her day with muesli with nuts and yoghurt. She has a few chapatis and green vegetables with dal for lunch and dinner. At other times, she eats moderate amount of cheese, chana, groundnut.
Some of the low-fat foods that are also loved by Bollywood stars are: black beans, oats, salmon, brown rice, almonds and kidney beans
Fruits good for weight loss include: avocados, pears, blueberries
Vegetables recommended for weight loss: brocoli, spinach
It has been five years since Sonakshi Sinha has lost more than 20 kgs, and she has managed to keep that weight off, thanks to her sheer determination, willpower, and regular exercise.
