Ananya Panday's yoga trainer Anshuka Parwani has cheered Ananya on with her practice. "Coming h(OM)e strong, welcome back to the studio," said her trainer. Yoga is terrific for flexibility. In one study, "Lumbar and hamstring flexibility were assessed pre and post-intervention using a standard sit and reach test. The results show a significant increase in flexibility, indicating 6 weeks of single session yoga training may be effective in increasing erector spinae and hamstring flexibility. This is important when considering that much of the population find it difficult to attend more than one session a week into their training schedule."


Here's What She Loves to Eat


"So for breakfast, I have an egg. I have an omelet and I have a toast with butter and I have a black coffee," she told hollyhood Hungama. "And for lunch, I have a chicken sandwich, and for dinner, I have either fish or chicken and soup. And then through the day I have coffee." "Eggs are an inexpensive source of protein, but they have many more nutritional attributes. Eggs are packed with B vitamins and vitamin D; in fact, whole eggs contain 6% of your daily intake of vitamin D which is difficult to find in food products," Meghan Sedivy, RD, LDN, Fresh Thyme Market's Corporate Registered Dietitian and Health & Wellness Strategy Manager, tells our sister site Eat This, Not That!. "Vitamin D helps with calcium absorption as well as bone and immune health."


She Gets Her Sleep

"I sleep quite a bit. I need to get at least eight hours of sleep and ten horse is ideal for me, but I sleep a lot." Seven to nine hours of sleep is considered ideal. "Rapidly emerging evidence continues to describe an intimate and causal relationship between sleep and emotional brain function. These findings are mirrored by long-standing clinical observations demonstrating that nearly all mood and anxiety disorders co-occur with one or more sleep abnormalities," says one study.


She Love Seafood

"I love salmon and I love prawns. I love seafood." Generally speaking, fish like salmon provide one of the best sources of fatty acids known as omega-3s, which will help fend off waist-widening inflammation and are an excellent source of high-quality, lean protein. This allows them to help you maintain muscle mass, thus reducing excess fat accumulation. Some of our favorite healthy seafood include mussels, Atlantic mackerel, halibut, and bluefish.

"I'm allergic to rice. I'm allergic to quite a few things, but I like having bread more than anything," she says. "And I like having cheese naan as well." Add some chia seeds to your bread recipe for an added boost. According to a study in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition, loaves of bread supplemented with increasing doses of chia seeds were found to decrease spikes in blood sugar in a dose-dependent manner. Post-eating blood sugar spikes have been implicated in causing increases in inflammation due to the overproduction of inflammatory free radicals called reactive oxygen species (ROS).
