Balancing Diet and Exercise

Das doesn't restrict food groups, instead working out more to balance out her diet. "Be it health or beauty, for both, food is very important. Food and exercise, for that matter," she says. "According to me, home-made food keeps you healthier. Even your beauty stays intact if you ask my opinion. While eating foods with cholesterol, like fried or oily stuff, you should balance it out with exercise. That is my strategy. So, when I eat too much rice, I prefer to balance it out with exercise."


Healthy Mantra

Das avoids foods that are too spicy or too sweet. She also emphasizes the importance of getting at least 6-8 hours of sleep a night. "I think we should avoid sugar," she says. "Sleep well, eat healthy foods, drink a lot of water, avoid spicy and sugar. I think that's how you get fit."


Fitness Freak

Das calls herself a "fitness freak" who loves strength training and cardio. Research shows regular exercise is great for heart health, and mental health. "Exercise can improve mental health problems like depression and stress, which are common but often ignored contributors to cardiovascular problems," says cardiologist Dr. Aaron Baggish, a professor at the University of Lausanne in Switzerland and founder of the Cardiovascular Performance Program at Harvard-affiliated Massachusetts General Hospital.


Personal Style

Das embraces her individual style and taste. "I just want to be different," she says. "Be [it] makeup, hairstyle or even the dressing sense, I don't like to copy anyone else. For the same, I keep changing my complete look every now and then. Wearing things in a certain way can be called a style in itself. If you have observed me, then you must have noticed that I keep trying unique things, so certainly that would be my style statement."


Moisturizing Her Skin

Das is diligent about moisturizing her skin. "Moisturizer is a must," she says. "I make sure to apply my moisturizer on a daily basis and without fail. Along with that, I use sunscreen too. Lastly, I always have 4-5 glasses of water minimum."
