She Doesn't Eat Gluten Or Dairy

"I tried the whole diet regime but couldn't keep it up because of my radical shooting schedules and traveling. I just don't eat bread unless it's Gluten Free, NO Rice at all (switched from rice to quinoa) and absolutely no dairy in my diet. I drink coffee with soy or almond milk or milk powder. No cheese unless it's cashew cheese and I've switched from sugar to honey," Amyra told Miss Malini.

Amyra maintains a healthy diet. "My breakfast is a three egg-white omelet with tomato, coriander, garlic & carrots with a slice of gluten free bread. Lunch and dinner are usually the same – 3 veggie dishes made in ghee (very little) + Dal + grilled chicken or fish. During the day I snack on fruits which have a high water content like watermelon, grapes, oranges and some dry fruits when I'm in the mood for something crunchy," she said. 


She Cheats


"My cheat day is usually Sunday where I go crazy with pizza for breakfast, KFC for lunch & risotto or Pasta for dinner.I am a procrastinator by nature and can't stick to a gym routine," she added. 


Her Workout Schedule Is Intense

Amyra works out almost every day. "10 am – 11:30 am is my gymnastics and flexibility training class at home," she explained to Miss Malini. "Tuesday/Thursday & Saturday is the gym from 11 am – 12:30 pm. Here it's mostly weight training with 10-15 minutes of cardio (treadmill or stair master) as a warm-up. 3 times a week in the afternoon I have a 2-hour dance class whenever my teacher and I have time free. Sometimes it's 3 days in a row or alternate days but 3 times a week is fixed. On Sunday mornings, I love going for a run from the beginning of Nariman Point through the marine drive and straight to my apartment. I cab it to Nariman Point and get home on my own two legs either running or jogging. I've always wanted a nice toned butt and all I did was squats and deadlifts for 3 months while doing my lower body workout. 3 sets of Squats, 20 reps per set & the same for dead lifts. My butt went from a 34 to a 38 in 3 months!!! Now, I just maintain it but it really did work for me. Just squat till you drop I guess!"


She Doesn't Count Calories

You won't find Amyra focusing on the numbers. "I'm not calorie conscious, but I know what to eat and what to avoid. I avoid desserts only because of the sugar and dairy content, as I am aware about its long term effects on my body," she told My Medical Mantra.
