Fitness mantra: Diet is a very misinterpreted word, it sounds like a torture: Rakul Preet Singh
Rakul Preet Singh is one of those south Indian actresses who is very much dedicated to her fitness routine. A blue belt in Karate, Rakul says that she feels grumpy and lethargic if she fails to do her workout even for a day.
The actress makes sure to hit the gym six days a week. “Just like we wash our face every day to remove the dirt, we need to wash off the toxins from the body,” says Rakul. She works out not to lose weight but to keep herself strong, fit and healthy. “I am somebody who enjoys the workout; it’s not a burden for me. I enjoy the whole process of sweating out, if I don’t work out for two to three days straight, I start feeling very lethargic, it feels incomplete,” adds the Theeran Adhigaaram Ondru star.
She also does high-intensity cardio workouts like kickboxing, cycling and so on. “Spinning and strength training are my favourite types of exercises apart from cardio.”
Rakul is a true Punjabi when it comes to eating habit. But she is also an actress, so she has to keep her body in top shape. Talking about her diet and eating habits, Rakul says, “I believe in healthy eating and follow a balanced diet. Diet is a very misinterpreted word and sounds like a torture; I try eating homemade food and avoid any form of sweets and fried, packaged food.” Although a huge fan of gulab jamuns and aloo parathas, the actor has managed to maintain an enviable frame without following crazy diets or starving herself. “I prefer a carb-rich diet because avoiding carbs drains you of energy and reduces your body’s ability to burn fat. There is no place for junk foods like biscuits, cakes, pizza, bread and ice creams in my diet. Instead, I splurge on vegetables and fruits.”
