Malaika Arora is a fitness inspiration but to achieve her svelte figure, the actress not only swears by yoga, but maintains a healthy diet as well. Malaika also practices intermittent fasting and is a stickler for her timetable.
Giving a glimpse of her daily routine, Malaika shares, “I do intermittent fasting, so I don’t eat anything in the morning because my last meal is at 7-7:30 in the night. So, I fast for about 16 to 18 hours. I start my day with a lot of liquids, which is warm water, ghee or coconut oil, in the morning. The liquid could be whatever you like–plain water, jeera water, or water with lime. I do all of that in the morning and I break my fast with nuts–walnuts and a mix of nuts that I have”.
Ask her what is on her plate for lunch and dinner, and Malaika rattles off, “I have a proper full lunch, which includes a bit of carbs and good fats. I have something for snacks in the evening–a very light, healthy snack. And I have my dinner by 7 pm. So, it can be a little of everything–vegetables, or if you’re a meat-eater then meat, eggs, or a bit of legumes or lentils. I divide it and make sure to try and have as wholesome a meal as possible. And that’s it. I don’t have anything after 7 pm.”
The fitness enthusiast maintains that she hardly ever steps out for dinners or lunches. Malaika adds, “Predominantly, all my meals are home-cooked, I rarely eat out”.
