It’s not at all a hidden truth that Alia Bhatt was a chubby kid, who lost oodles of weight in a couple of years and now flaunts a super-toned body. But, her fat-to-fit transformation was not that rapid. She went slow and made small changes in her diet to get that slender frame. Also, her character in the movie ‘Udta Punjab’ demanded her to look skinny AF and the actress obviously could not starve to get there. So, how did Alia achieve that toned bod in the movie? The answer to it was her go-to dietician Rujuta Diwekar. (Also Read:Holy moly! Stop everything, and check out how expensive Karan Johar’s bag is)
Recently, celebrity dietitian Rujuta Diwekar caught the ‘Dear Zindagi’ star in a particular chatty mood on a Facebook Live session, and the duo immediately got their Lara Croft gear on to shatter some myths. And you know what was the first thing in Alia’s rule book? “No boy is worth starving for,” she declared.
So, if you are heading for a beach Holiday where you need to flash your bikini bod, here’s what Alia swears by to keep her figure and radiant glow locked in place.
Online info can misguide you at times!
Now, we all depend on 'Google' for whatever doubt we have in mind. Be it about dating, dressing or even DIETING. Alia, during the FB live session with her dietitian, confessed that various information available online can sometimes be helpless. She said, “Everyone’s talking about gluten-free pizza, brown bread and red rice, about reducing their carb intake, and I’m eating white bread and butter at 4 am. Rujuta showed me how local food eaten in moderation can be healthy.”
Sugar is not your enemy!
All the dietitians you'll go and consult, the first thing which they'll tell you is to eliminate sugar from your food habit. But, Alia's dietitian, Rujuta recalls the jaw-drop she got when she recommended Alia to swap out the honey in her nimbu paani with a spoonful of sugar and saffron. Alia during her FB session said, “Ever since Rujuta told me that the drink is great for my hair too, I don’t skip it. Not having sugar or salt gave me cramps; it’s harmful to give it up entirely." BRAVO!
Don't skip on basics!
Here, Rutuja reveals what is common between Alia and Bebo, read below- Rutuja says, "Alia has so far been a model student and never skips her rejuvenating glass of sugarcane juice post-workout, a habit that she shares with Kareena Kapoor Khan." Whoa, so now you know what to sip-in, right girls?
Make your own simple food!
Oh, looks like the most amazing and miraculous diet has been hiding out in your kitchen all along, read below- “I make my paneer and dahi from that organic milk too and consume it fresh. It works as a natural fat burner and gives me a good skin tone. It’s my job to look fabulous,” laughs Alia. So what makes it to her daily lunchbox? “Dal khichdi and curd rice are my favourites with a spoonful of ghee,” she added.
Natural is the key!
Yes, we know that you’ve heard this millions of times. So has Alia, and she ensures that her daily fluid intake involves lassi and chhaas made out of purely organic milk. Also, mommy Soni Razdan ensures that the milk delivered to Alia is in glass bottles instead of plastic packs. What will you get in return for indulging your sweet tooth? Here's the answer; sugar acts as a natural coolant and helps cool down the body temperature after working out. So, are you impressed with Alia's diet regimen?
