Do Yoga

Kriti maintains that yoga changed her life. "I think it's one of the best things that have happened to me," she confessed to Hindustan Times. "It keeps me really calm and challenged. I don't do the exact same thing every day. I like being surprised so I think yoga really works for me. Recently, I did a head-stand for the first time in my life and it was great!" she said. "I think the advantage I have with yoga is that it is something I can do on my own and can't make excuses that I don't have a place or the time. One can practice yoga anywhere, anytime. You don't have to worry about what you're wearing. For all of these reasons, yoga works for me." 


Be Disciplined

Kriti believes that discipline helps her stay in shape more than anything. "I think with long hours and long schedules, more than the workout, it's the discipline that matters," she told Hindustan Times. "You have to make sure that you are eating right and put in your basics of twenty minutes of working out."


Motivate Yourself with Results

Kritiis is results motivated.. "I actually didn't like working out. There was a time when I hated it and I just did it because I didn't have a choice and my job needed me to do so. But when you see results, you enjoy what you are doing," she told Hindustan Times. "I realised that if I don't have a healthy lifestyle, forget my career, I will not have a good life. I want to be as healthy as I possibly can be. I just want to make sure that I do everything to take care of myself. Like they say charity begins at home, love begins at home too. So I want to do the best for me. I want to pamper myself and do the best for my body."


Eat Healthy

Kriti is "the devil" in Kriti's life. "I find it really hard to stay away from food," she told Hindustan Times. "I just make sure that I eat enough to keep me happy. I think that's super important. Sometimes, when we go on a diet, we forget that the mind needs to be happy too. I avoid carbs as much as possible and avoid eating oily stuff. I don't mind ghee and butter though."


Indulge on Occasion

Kriti has "a major sweet-tooth," she told Hindustan Times. "I don't eat chocolates at all because they give me a tummy ache but I love deserts of any kind, be it Indian or continental. Tiramisu is my most favourite. But it's not a vice I want to get rid of. It's something I want to try and control a little bit. So usually what happens is, after I workout, I get really excited and I feel like I deserve a treat. I feel like a dog sometimes because when I do something right, I think I earn a treat. I do that to myself and that's a habit I want to get rid of." 


Avoid Crash Diets


"Crash diets are not the best way," Kriti told Hindustan Times. "Your body is accustomed to a certain lifestyle. It is absolutely wrong to put your body through something that is so alien to it. I have also tried the ketogenic diet. It worked really well for me. I saw some great results in three months. But I realised that I was stressing my body out."


Focus on Health Not Perfection

"Fitness for me is not about having the perfect body. It's about having a healthy body," says Kriti. "I don't like the concept of women having washboard abs. I like a little bit of fat around me. It makes me feel girly and I think I am going to stick to that. I feel really nice about myself that way. Of course, I want to be toned and the next two months are going to be dedicated to toning my body."


Do Intermittent Fasting

Kriti does intermittent fast, she told Pink Villa. She starts her day with "healthy detoxifying" Jeera-Dhania water to boost her immunity as well as black coffee. Later she will eat a bowl of fruit, followed by a meal of fish for lunch or dinner. She will also eat rice and her favorite cheat meal is biryani, which she eats twice a week.
