She Does Yoga Daily

Ritabhari starts her every day Monday through Friday with yoga, she told Hindustan Times. There is a laundry list of reasons to do yoga, explains Harvard Health. "Researchers found that people who practiced yoga for at least 30 minutes once a week for at least four years, gained less weight during middle adulthood," they said. "People who were overweight actually lost weight. Overall, those who practiced yoga had lower body mass indexes (BMIs) compared with those who did not practice yoga. Researchers attributed this to mindfulness. Mindful eating can lead to a more positive relationship with food and eating."


She Also Does Kickboxing, Krav Maga, Dance, and Pilates

After yoga, Ritabhari will do a kickboxing workout or Israeli self-defence called Krav Maga. On the weekends, she prefers to dance it out with kathak or goes for Pilates, she told Hindustan Times. 


She Is a Vegetarian

Ritabhari eats healthy, cooking most of her food herself. "The best is to avoid oils from outside. I have recently turned vegetarian as I believe it is a step towards a healthier lifestyle and helps curb cruelty against animals. Honestly, I'm enjoying it," she told Hindustan Times. 


She Rides Bikes

Ritabhari also loves riding bikes. The Cleveland Clinic explains that biking, a low-impact aerobic exercise, is great for building muscle, improving strength and flexibility, and improving balance. It can also boost mental health and help other health conditions, including arthritis. 


She Fought Back Against Body Shamers

After undergoing surgery, Ritabhari gained a lot of weight and was attacked by online trolls. This inspired her to make a move about a plus sized model and even gained over 55 pounds for the role. "It took me four months to gain 25 kgs and six months to lose. So, the four months of gaining and one and a half months of shooting the film affected me. My breathing got affected. I got stretch marks," she told Cineblitz. "But I just hope that it is going to be worth it. If this film actually resonates with women who constantly feel bad about themselves because of the way the world treats them, I just hope that this film makes them feel good. Nobody can be confident when everyone is telling you that your shape is not right. So, we have shown my character's journey from where she was to where she reached when she accepts herself."
