Dholakia relies on walking to stay in shape. "I have been a person who has never been to the gym," she says. "Badi mushkil se (with great difficulty), I have started walking abhi (now). Last year throughout the lockdown I did nothing. I was sitting like a rain (queen) in the house doing nothing. I gained 8 kg [17 lbs]. After the lockdown, did unlock I started walking to shed all the weight."

Dholakia prefers to eat her heavier meals earlier in the day and enjoy a light dinner. "My personal regime is I have a good lunch, nice and healthy," she says. "I eat home-cooked food and in the evening I probably have a fruit or something and then by 7.30-8.00 pm, I want to eat dinner and get done."


Eggs For Breakfast

Dholakia enjoys a simple breakfast of eggs and very strong tea. "Eggs are a good source of protein (both whites/yolk). They also contain heart-healthy unsaturated fats and are a great source of important nutrients, such as vitamin B6, B12 and vitamin D," says Kurt Hong, MD, an internal medicine specialist at Keck Medicine of USC.


She Loves Mutton

Dholakia won't eat chicken, but loves mutton. "I am a hardcore mutton fan," she says. "I can have a kilo of mutton in a single sitting. Once when I was at a friend's place for dinner I asked the maid to keep aside some lamb chops for me, until I washed my hands."


Proud Of Her Body

Dholakia embraces every part of her body. "I'm aware of how people try to bully women, who choose to dress a certain way after they become mothers," she says. "But I would like to ask, who has made these rules? I love my body. Stretch marks and cellulite are inconsequential, they are just marks, like a tattoo! My stretch marks are proof that life grew within me, no one can take that away from me."
