Maintain a Healthy Diet

According to Shama, staying in shape starts with a healthy diet. "I prefer eating healthy food and avoid oily stuff and rice. Instead of regular rotis, I have multi-grained rotis. My diet comprises a lot of proteins and less carbohydrates. Food with more fibre, such as egg whites, chicken, and fish form a big part of my diet," she told Celeb Fitness

Switch Up Your Diet

Shama also recommends making changes to your diet according to your health goals. "Right now I'm focusing on good health, because I had some health issues in the last year," she said in a video detailing her diet.

Try Intermittent Fasting

Shama is a big fan of time restrictive eating, aka intermittent fasting. "Giving gap is very very important," she explained. There are various methods of time restricted eating, according to the Mayo Clinic.

  • Alternate-day fasting. Eat a normal diet one day and either completely fast or have one small meal (less than 500 calories) the next day.
  • 5:2 fasting. Eat a normal diet five days a week and fast two days a week.
  • Daily time-restricted fasting. Eat normally but only within an eight-hour window each day. For example, skip breakfast but eat lunch around noon and dinner by 8 p.m.," they explain.

Do Yoga

Shama also recommends yoga, a great body-mind workout. "This one was tough but soooo liberating, powerful strengthening and all glute / back muscle opening," she captioned this photo shared to Instagram. According to the American Osteopathic Association, there are more than 100 different types, or schools, of yoga.

Physical benefits of yoga include:

  • increased flexibility
  • increased muscle strength and tone
  • improved respiration, energy and vitality
  • maintaining a balanced metabolism
  • weight reduction
  • cardio and circulatory health
  • improved athletic performance
  • protection from injury

Meditate

Sikander gets her zen on via meditation, which helps her deal with online trolls. "Trolls rarely affect me now, all thanks to the meditation that I practice on a regular basis. That helps me keep calm," she told Indian Express.

Fight

Shama is also a big fan of fighting her way to a hot body. She loves boxing and kickboxing. "Let's fight…" she captioned a recent video of her intense workout. "This kind of boxing has many health benefits, because it constantly requires you to think, change your position, and change your posture," physical therapist Linda Arslanian, director of rehabilitation services at Harvard-affiliated Brigham and Women's hospital tells Harvard Health."You're swinging your arms, moving the muscles of your arms and shoulders, increasing your upper-body strength. And when you're in the boxer crouch with a wide stance, with your knees slightly bent, you're strengthening your core muscles, back, and legs."

Prioritize Self-Care

Sikander makes sure to take care of herself. "I just love going to spas and indulging myself in massages at least once a week. Sleeping is another great way to relax. Listening to soft music helps me unwind after a hard day's work. Traveling is another passion that always rejuvenates me," she told Celeb Fitness.
