She Maintains That Diet Is 70% of the Battle
"It doesn't matter how much U exercise if U cannot control ur diet. Losing weight is 70% diet & 30% exercise," she revealed on Twitter. In another Twitter post, she revealed her top diet and fitness tips, per India Today. "Eat smaller portions of food and at least six to seven small meals," she said. "Avoid too much starch and carbohydrates like white bread, pasta and rice. Go for whole wheat or whole grains and brown bread." Also, it's how you eat that matters. "Eat slowly and chew a lot. Also sit down and enjoy your meal. Eating fast means eating a lot with very little satisfaction."
"Drink lots of water," Preity instructed on Twitter. "Drink at least two glasses of water when you wake up," she added. She also suggests avoiding fruit juices and eating a whole fruit instead. "Fruit juices have too much sugar in them. Too much sugar and salt are terrible for you," she said.
She Exercises First Thing in the Morning
Preity wakes up in the morning and breaks a sweat. "Try exercising in the morning on an empty stomach. If you cannot do any exercise then at least go for a walk. Brisk walk is amazing for you," she suggested.
Preity is a big advocate of cheat days. "Eat whatever you want in one day so it's ur cheat day. This helps you to maintain your diet for the week," she said on Twitter.
She Does Dance Cardio
Preity has a fun way to exercise. "Try dancing to your favorite song five times in a row…If you can bounce up and down five times in a row your cardio for the day is done," she suggests. "An Australian study, which pooled data from 48,000 British people, found that moderate intensity dancing is linked to a lower risk of dying from cardiovascular disease," says the British Heart Foundation. "Dancers were found to have a 46 per cent lower risk of cardiovascular death, compared with those who rarely or never danced. The study also suggested the social side of dancing, and the relaxation that comes with it, could be partly responsible for its health benefits."
