Ananya Panday, star of Gehraiyaan, the new hit Indian Hindi-language movie on Amazon Prime, knows how to get people interested.

The truth is, she's been turning heads since her roles in Student of the Year 2 and Pati Patni Aur Woh earned her the Filmfare Award for Best Female Debut. How does she stay so fit? Read on to see 5 ways Ananya Panday stays in shape and the photos that prove they work—and to get beach-ready yourself, don't miss these essential 30 Best-Ever Celebrity Bathing Suit Photos!


She Likes Healthy Proteins

According to reports, Ananya Panday likes to eat two egg whites, low fat milk or South Indian food for breakfast. The eggs are a great idea, but although it's true that egg whites are low in calories, fat free, and contain most of the protein found in an egg, eating the entire egg is beneficial to your metabolism. The yolk contains fat-soluble vitamins, essential fatty acids and—most significantly—the B-vitamin choline, a powerful compound that attacks the gene mechanism that triggers your body to store fat around your liver. Choline deficiency is linked directly to the genes that cause visceral fat accumulation, particularly in the liver. Yet according to a National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, only a small percentage of all Americans eat daily diets that meet the U.S. Institute of Medicine's Adequate Intake of 425 mg for women and 550 mg for men.


She Does Yoga

Panday has been seen doing yoga with wellness trainer, Anshuka Parwani, who once captioned a photo of Panday doing a headstand: "Coming h(OM)e strong, welcome back to the studio." "It's natural to want to nail every yoga pose or imitate the movements of instructors or social media influencers. Fight that urge to do so. Before you even get on your mat, tell yourself this, 'My practice is unique like me and that is perfectly fine.' Why? Because pushing yourself to do what everyone else is doing could lead to frustration — or injury," says the Cleveland Clinic


She's a Coffee Drinker


"Coffee is surprisingly rich in antioxidants – naturally-occurring plant compounds that have been shown to help protect against several chronic diseases, including heart disease and cancer," Kelli McGrane MS, RD, registered dietitian and Lose It! nutrition consultant, told our sister site Eat This, Not That!. "Coffee is particularly rich in an antioxidant called chlorogenic acid, which has been linked with helping to reduce cholesterol, triglyceride, and blood sugar levels. Of course, other lifestyle factors are also important in reducing your chronic disease risk, including diet, exercise, and not smoking."


She Uses Aloe Vera

"I have an aloe plant at home and I tried taking the juice out of it, letting it cool in the freezer for a bit, and then putting it in my hair and on my face for 30 minutes. It just gives you the most perfect glow, and makes your hair so much softer. I think aloe vera for the hair and skin is just such an underrated hack," she told Vogue India.                                   


She Sets Boundaries for Social Media

"Currently, my relationship with social media is like that of a couple who has taken a long break and then gotten back together so it's pretty good right now. When it comes to social media, I think it's important to set boundaries with yourself. You need to recognise when it's getting too much, or when it's affecting your mental health, and I'm not very good with that. I tend to indulge once I start scrolling, I just keep scrolling and don't know where to stop. So I'm really trying to monitor that," she told India Today.
