Shilpa Shetty: What I eat in a day | Lifestyle | Pinkvilla | Bollywood | S01E03

July 23, 2019 100 By William Morgan


Hi guys, I am Shilpa Shetty Kundra and you
are watching me on Pinkvilla
showing my solidarity, umm..
So today I’m gonna tell you what exactly
my diet comprises of and what I eat
So, hope you guys get some motivation
out of it and, umm.. chew your food
The first thing I do as soon as I wake up
is, I kind of, cleanse my system with
warm water
It’s not hot, just plain warm water
and before I have the warm water, I have
4 drops of noni juice,
the concentrated noni juice, and it
really gives me a lot of strength in the
morning, to cope with all the crazy stuff
that I do the rest of the day
And the other very important thing that
I do as a ritual
Every morning is oil pulling, so I take
at least 2 tablespoons of coconut oil,
cold-pressed coconut oil, and I basically,
roll it around my mouth, between my teeth
It looks really funny
So, I do this for like a good
7 to 10 minutes
They say you should do it for 20 minutes,
but, you know, with our fast-paced lives,
if I get in like 10 minutes, I am like,
Yay!
So, everybody knows, I swear by Yoga,
and yes, I have started doing a lot of
different workouts that have been inspired
by Yoga as well..So I’m a fitness freak
You can actually call me a freak now, yeah,
self-confessed fitness freak, but I don’t
do it to lose weight, or I don’t do it to,
umm..
prove a point to myself..
Most people think that you have to contort
your body into different pretzelic forms
to do Yoga, but I don’t..
There are a lot of asanas that I’m still
surprised with, and I’m kind of
rediscovering my inner strength, and my
flexibility, with doing it over a period
of time
So no, you don’t have to be an expert
contortionist to do Yoga, so I do a lot
of workout regimes that help me with that
so it’s a mixture of high-intensity,
you know, interval training, there is
core-strengthening, I love doing planks,
different kinds of that, I enjoy burpees
I know it’s crazy, like who can enjoy burpees
I enjoy these animal walks, so it’s not
one kind of training, it’s an amalgam of
a lot of stuff, yeah..
So, I discovered Yoga around 17 years ago,
when I was injured
I had injured my neck, and my physio had
told me to start doing Yoga to strengthen it
And I had a Yoga teacher to come home and
teach me, and then I went on to, umm,
learn much more about Yoga, I realized
it wasn’t just great for strengthening an
injured part, and rehabilitation, but also
great to, kind of, tone your body,
and as I kept learning more and more about
Yoga, I realised, It was not just for your
body, but also, for your mind..
So, I think we all need help in that area
(laughs)
So, I started off with Ashtanga today,
I do Vinyasa, the Bihar School of Yoga,
I’ve tried all different kinds of Yoga forms,
but what I would tell people, is that,
it doesn’t matter what form you’re doing,
try and keep to the basics of inhaling and
exhaling throughout the asanas, and that’s
what will affect and oxygenate your muscles,
rejuvenate your mind and your body, and
that’s what is important.
So, I get time in the mornings because
I have a son, and he goes to school,
and there are many a times that I’m also
inundated with work in the mornings,
you know, if I’m shooting, umm, so then I
try, saying that I will compensate for
the next day, so, it doesn’t matter
as long as you are not, umm,
they say Yoga is preferably to be done on
an empty stomach, or you can have maybe,
warm water, or a cup of tea..
Some people who are addicted to tea, or
you know, a small piece of banana,
that’s about it.. You can’t go on a heavy
stomach and start doing Yoga, so even if
you do eat, try and maintain a two and a half
hour gap, and then do Yoga
So, it can be in the afternoon,
mid-afternoon, after your lunch
They say working out, even in the evenings
is great, you know
So, it gives you a boost of energy, and umm,
I prefer to do it in the morning, so..
So my day is pretty simple, and I eat
like people used to eat 70 years ago,
which means, my mornings start at 7 in
the morning.. I try to get my breakfast in
between 7 and..7.30 and 8, and it’s a
very high fiber breakfast, so it’ll be
either oats, or muesli, coupled with fruits
I start off with a raw food, so i’s either
a banana, or grated apple, blueberries,
in my muesli, and umm, I try to keep it
low sugar, so I would..I prefer to use
natural forms of sweeteners like honey, or
powdered jaggery, that is very readily
available in the market
Now the newest form of sugar is coconut sugar
Even that’s great for your oats
So that’s my breakfast, that’s if it’s a
vegetarian day..If my morning starts
earlier than that, then I start off with
this simple smoothie, which is, umm,
a mixture of almond milk, and banana,
and raw oats and honey, and I can add
whatever fruit I want into it, so, that’s
on-the-go, and then I have 2 eggs
So, if I start very early in the morning,
there are basically two breakfasts
So then I have 2 eggs around 10-10.30 with
either avocado..raw avocado, and maybe a
whole wheat toast with butter..
“WITH” butter
and then I have my tea, again with
coconut sugar
So I try and avoid all kinds of sweeteners,
and, umm, I like to keep it natural and clean.
My afternoon meal is my heaviest meal
actually,
and it comprises of either brown rice,
white rice, whatever is available, umm,
there’s a chicken or a fish, some kind of
protein, and, I like my vegetables,
so there’s vegetables, and I have my salad
is very very simple, it’s just cucumber
and carrot (laughs) with a bit of
sea salt on it, so it’s nothing fancy
Then there’s sometimes, I may be
alternate my heavy lunch, with like a,
Yogi bowl, and that’s what I call it
So in that one bowl I basically put-in
everything
I’ll put in salad leaves, I’ll put in barley
or you know, rice..brown rice, and I’ll add
some chicken bits, grilled chicken, I’ll
add beetroot, so it’s like a salad, cum
food, cum everything, all-in-one
And the very important thing that I forgot
to mention that I try to get in a spoon
of ghee into my lunch anyhow
When I say a spoon, it’s like, a tablespoon
So yeah, I have a tablespoon of ghee every
day with my lunch
So whether it be in my roti, I also like
my parathas sometimes, so if it’s paratha
and sabzi and dal and chicken, I even have
that, so I like that..
Then comes my snack, which is like a mid-meal
A thing that I like
I don’t like to keep too much gap in
between my food, I mean between my lunch
and my tea
So, my mid-meal would be just maybe 2 eggs
or, umm, a sandwich with beetroot and
cucumber, and potato..I love boiled
potatoes, just sliced, and a bit of
chaat masala, and make it into a sandwich
and just bite it..it’s yum!
And that just keeps you from getting
peckish before dinner
Then I have my tea in the evening, and,
umm, around 7-7.30 with my son
7.30 to 8, my son, my husband and I sit
together, and we have our dinner
So that’s my last meal, which is a very
light,
fairly lighter meal than the rest of the
day
I like a soup..It can be veg, chicken,
whatever
and I don’t eat anything raw, I prefer
not to eat anything raw
So most people have salads in the night
which is not a concept that I believe in
I have something, umm, grilled, or
even if it’s a vegetable, dal, whatever
I try to keep it low-carb at night, I try
But then, if I feel like having a
mushroom hotpot rice, I’ll have that
So there is no hard and fast rule
So that’s my day basically, and if I feel
I’m craving for something sweet, I have a
piece of chikki after lunch
So that’s my biggest rule!
When you have a child, you have to be an
early riser
I love Indian food, and I also love
Chinese and Japanese..
I’m a foodie!
See, that’s a really interesting question
Now because I belong to the beauty
business
or maybe, the “body business”
We have to take care of how..how we look,
and, umm, people can be judgemental, and I
totally get it
But I don’t make too many changes, because
I’ve already made a big lifestyle change
I don’t eat after 7.30 in the evening,
I eat very healthy, clean food, so
I have a clean diet, so I don’t have to
make too many changes if I’m walking the
red carpet,
or I’m showing my stomach, yes obviously
to look more chiseled, like to have
washboard abs and to look flat,
you have to make sure that you eat a lot
of high fiber, high protein, and making
sure that maybe the previous day you don’t
have carbs, so, it’s very low-carb the
previous day, if I’m showing my abs..
My favourite cheat meal, oh my god I love
deserts!
And I love..I love Biryani!
I love lamb Biryani
I love, umm, I love roshogolla!
And I love rabdi and hot jalebis..it’s my
absolute favorite!
And, umm, yeah yeah, I can give you a
long list!
I’ve seen people try it
I think it works a lot for a lot of people
It’s a very hard diet to do – The Keto
The Keto diet, where you’re eating high
amounts of fat
high amount of, actually, adequate protein
high fat,
and no carbs, no sugar, no fruits
So I’m like..what are we gonna do (laughs)
It’s scary..so I mean, I would suggest
something like that to maybe someone who’s
a body-builder, who has maybe let
themselves go for some time
and then need to shred, so, you know, it
works really great for them
But there are some people who barely have
like 3 kilos to lose and they are on Keto
diets
And it makes you very crotchety, it makes
you very angry
because your body and your mind is not
getting what it wants, so, umm, I don’t
know,
I find it very strange, so yeah..
So I really hope this helps you guys
in the long run, and if you like this
