She Does Yoga

"Yoga can improve joint range of motion. It is not uncommon these days for people to report neck and back pain, and poor range of motion in their thoracic spine due to constant sitting, typing on computers and looking down at cellphones. Yoga is excellent in improving thoracic range of motion because many poses involve extending the body through the rib cage and using strength to hold these postures," says the Mayo Clinic. "Yoga incorporates all four motions of the spine: flexion, extension, rotation and side-bending. Therefore, yoga can prevent stiffness and disuse that also can occur with age. Being able to control the available range of motion in joints is crucial to good posture and decreasing the risk of injury."


She's Very Flexible

"To keep your body limber and your muscles in good shape, you need to stay active and do exercises that are focused on flexibility. Limiting your physical activity or sitting for long periods of time can cause your muscles to become limited in their flexibility and range. And as you age, your muscles gradually become shorter and begin to lose some elasticity. Aging can also decrease the range of motion in your hips, shoulders and spine," says the Cleveland Clinic. 


She Has Promoted Being Vegetarian

Vegetarians can get protein from interesting sources. "It's enough to make Popeye do a spit take: Peas might seem wimpy, but one cup contains eight times the protein of a cup of spinach. And with almost 100% of your daily value of vitamin C in a single cup, they'll help keep your immune system in tip-top shape," says out sister site Eat This, Not That! "Add peas, onion, garlic and some low-sodium chicken stock to a greased saute pan and season with salt and pepper. Cook until veggies are wilted and warm and serve as a side dish."


She Likes the Gym and Here's Her Workout

"I never get bored of a workout, because I feel great after a session. I currently have a lot going on, so I don't get to exercise that much. But on a usual day, I go to my building gym in Andheri. I cannot exercise at home. I need to have that mirror in front of me, and that whole vibe of other people working out around me. I do an hour of weights, which include sides and abs, followed by 30 minutes of cardio with crossfit," she told Idiva


Here's Her Sample Meal Plan


"I space out my meals through the day. I start my day with two toasts of multigrain bread and a cup of tea. Three hours later I have the Apple, Beet, Carrot (ABC) juice, which Abhay Deol introduced me to. It sounds awful but it tastes pretty good. This I have with three egg whites which are either boiled, scrambled or made into an omelet. For lunch I have something light, like dimsums, or a soup or a salad. Another three hours later, in the evening I have Bournvita. My dinner comprises dal, sabzi and a chapatti. I know people say you shouldn't eat curd at night, but I'm a north Indian, I can't go without curd." She also loves fruit.
