She's a Yogi
Roy is passionate about regular yoga sessions, also enjoying Pilates, dance, and weight training as part of her workout regimen. "It packs a powerful punch," says Maren Nyer, an instructor in psychology at Harvard Medical School and director of yoga studies at Harvard-affiliated Massachusetts General Hospital. "You're getting more than just one thing. You get strength and flexibility training, as well as a form of meditation that prepares you to be more mindful the rest of your day."
Turmeric and Cinnamon
Roy's morning routine is always the same—she starts the day with turmeric and cinnamon infused hot water, followed with a bowl of Indian-style rice and sprouts. "Some spices, including cinnamon, have prebiotic properties," says registered nutritionist Jo Lewin. "These bacteria may help restore the balance of bacteria in your gut, support digestive health and alleviate any digestive issues."
Lentils and Vegetables for Lunch
Roy enjoys healthy plant-based lunch. "One cup of rice with all the possible vegetables, dal. It's a full Bengali meal," she says. "After that if I feel hungry I have fruit, I have lots of dry fruits, one full handful. They are the best source of vitamins."
Roy avoids carbs when she wants to reset her diet, but admits it doesn't make her feel good. "If I have to be in a certain shape then I just avoid carbs, that's all. Other than that, no. Honestly, diets haven't worked out for me… When I am not eating rice I am such a crabby person. I can't concentrate on anything that's happening."
Fries and Pizza
Roy's go-to indulgences are fries, pizza, and any other kind of Italian food. "Pizza, more than the pizza I think it's the pasta," she says. "I love the aglio e olio, fusilli made in pesto." "The way the carbohydrates and protein in pasta are bound means that pasta has a lower glycemic index, or GI, meaning it is digested more slowly than other refined carbohydrates, according to researchers at the University of Sydney and the University of Toronto. Therefore, it might keep you full and release blood sugar (glucose) into your body more gradually, which could help with weight loss. Cold pasta is also a source of resistant starch, which may also help you lose weight," says Consumer Reports.
