She Loves Dancing

Shaikh loves dance-based workouts for staying active and in shape. "I enjoy dancing," she says. "It is something I'm very passionate about and it also helps to stay healthy. Dance is a good way to lose weight. It tones the body and keeps me in shape. I dance daily for almost an hour. It is a stress buster for me. I do not like cardio since I get bored but dancing is another form of cardio that works well for me. I disagree with people who say that gymming is the only way to stay fit. There are several other natural forms of exercises to be in shape."


Healthy Breakfast


Shaik likes to start the day with a protein-fuelled breakfast. "I'm an early riser," she says. "As soon as I wake up, I have coconut water, aloe vera pulp or wheat grass. My breakfast usually comprises cornflakes with milk or an egg white omelet with multigrain bread and a handful of dry fruits, which are soaked overnight. Lunch consists of dal, roti, sabzi and rice. Dinner is usually non-vegetarian. In between if I feel hungry, especially in the evenings, I munch on health bars. I also have at least two cups of green tea."


No Restrictive Diets

Shaik has a very down-to-earth philosophy towards staying in shape. "I don't believe in starving myself to be slim, I believe in the concept of being fit," she says. "I eat right and work out regularly. I don't deny myself anything; I eat everything that my heart desires but in proper proportions. I've never followed a diet in my life, as denying your body of certain nutrients does more harm than good. Thankfully, I don't have any problem areas as such, but like most women I have to work harder on my lower body to ensure that it stays toned.


Her Best Health Advice

Shaikh's advice to anyone trying to get in shape is very straightforward. "I would suggest everyone to eat healthy food and drink lots of water," she says. "I believe starving and dieting doesn't help to stay fit. Instead, I would suggest that everyone should have a healthy appetite followed by some physical activity to maintain an equilibrium."


She Focuses On Good Sleep

Shaik makes sure she sleeps well the night before a big event. "I make sure I sleep well at night before a red carpet event because puffy eyes screw up the makeup," she says. "I avoid sun for a day so that the face doesn't look tanned in the evening. Before applying makeup, I rub an ice cube on my face so that my skin is fresh and glowing and my makeup stands out."
