She Does Yoga

Yoga is Mallika's go-to workout."It's been five to six years that I have been doing Iyengar Yoga. I love it because it is based on alignment of the body and is very good for your mental health, too. It is like meditation, it is a great stress reliever and promotes positive inflow, which I really enjoy. That's the main reason I do Iyengar yoga. The physical benefits are secondary," she told DT Next. Why does she love it? "I feel really calm, it makes you really strong mentally. You can deal with anything. I keep travelling a lot and I don't like long flights. So, whenever I am taking a long flight like 10 hours, I get very stressed. And I have realised Iyengar Yoga really helps me. Also, it has helped me with my food cravings. I used to love sugar. Since I started doing Iyengar Yoga regularly, all the sugar cravings have gone away. The days I do my practice, I sleep more deeply. All these little things help me in my day to day life."


She Does TRX Workouts

Mallika also loves TRX workouts, strength training done with suspension cables. "TRX home workout is a great way to be fit & fabulous, these lunges are one of my favorite exercises to keep in shape," she captioned a post. "Pistol squat TRX training is one of the most challenging lower body workouts," she captioned another post.


She Stretches

Mallika also loves to stretch. "I love doing Uttanasana, Uttanasana is a stretch of the entire back body, from the soles of the feet and up the backs of the legs; spans the lower, middle, and upper back; rises up the neck; and circles over the scalp and back down the forehead. When you fold forward in Uttanasana, you stretch this entire sheath of muscles.It creates a Calming effect throughout the central nervous system. I personally experience Euphoria after doing this intense asana," she revealed in one of her posts.

Mallika also enjoys weight lifting and high intensity interval training (HIIT) , a scientifically backed form of fitness. "High intensity workout is one of my favorite form of exercises to engage the entire body & not just one muscle group."


She Is Vegan

"I was always a vegetarian and for the last 10 years, I am a vegan. I don't even take dairy products. I follow a very simple diet," she added to DT Next. "I feel it is the healthiest thing. I think what our grandparents used to eat was real food full of nutrition. Now there is so much pollution and pesticides, and the quality of food has gone down. So, we have to be careful about what we consume, nutrition-wise."


She Avoids Gluten

"I eat a lot of fresh fruits, vegetables, green juices and nuts. I prefer nuts for snacks. I strictly avoid gluten. People think wheat is very healthy but it is not. Gluten is very acidic for the body," Mallika told DT Next. There are several potential benefits to following a gluten-free diet. These may include:

  1. Improved digestion: Some people find that eliminating gluten from their diet improves their digestion and reduces symptoms such as bloating, abdominal pain, and diarrhea.
  2. Weight loss: Going gluten-free may lead to weight loss in some people, as many gluten-containing foods are high in calories and refined carbohydrates.
  3. Increased energy: Some people report increased energy levels after going gluten-free, as they are no longer consuming foods that may be causing inflammation or other digestive issues.
  4. Improved mental health: Some people with celiac disease or non-celiac gluten sensitivity report improvements in mental health symptoms, such as depression and anxiety, after going gluten-free.
