She Prioritizes Cardio

Priyanka really makes time for occasional cardio, usually going between spin classes and treadmill sprinting, finishing with yoga to relax. She does do some workouts, but to be honest, she admits that it's really not a huge priority and she has a lot to blame for good genes. "I have great Indian genes!" she said. "You know, I'm lazy. I want to take advantage of the fact that I have a great metabolism. When I start getting [bigger] I'll work on it! I like food, and I don't like the gym, and as long as I look like this without doing anything, why bother?"

Thanks To Her Good Metabolism, She Can Splurge

She says thanks to her genetics, she's blessed with a fast metabolism. "Fortunately I do not have a tendency to put on weight and can get away eating as much as I want to, which is a blessing in this industry," she said. "I don't really have a diet. I wing it by the seat of my pants," she continued. "It's such a girl thing to do, like if I feel, 'Ughh, I put on a few pounds' and I feel gross about [myself] I suddenly start eating salad, protein, and soup. Otherwise, if I am feeling like I am in great shape I am okay with cheeseburgers and pizza. So, when someone asks me about my diet I feel terrible saying that I don't really have one."

She Avoids Oily Food

Priyanka often avoids oily foods packed with unhealthy fats. "My daily diet consists of regular food like chapati, vegetables, soups, salads, rice, dal and lots of fruits," she said. "Also juices and water are very high on my intake list. In fact, water is a must for everyone, at least 10 glasses a day. I often overshoot that, but it does wonders to your skin." According to the Mayo Clinic, "a diet laden with trans fats increases the risk of heart disease, the leading killer of adults. The more trans fats eaten, the greater the risk of heart and blood vessel disease."

Priyanka openly admits she's nothing like a gym rat. She claims she works out to stay fit, not for weight-loss. "I am not a gym-freak, but do work out regularly to keep the body well-toned. The idea is to keep fit and healthy and not shrink myself by two or three sizes," she said about her workouts that generally last about an hour.

When Priyanka wants to indulge, she has particular staples that she likes to go for. "You don't have to starve yourself," she said. "I love having my pizzas and burgers and buffalo wings, on the side, for sure." She typically likes to eat healthy during the week, but will go for the chocolate cake and tandoori on the weekends.
