Dum Laga Ke Haisha was a great movie. No it’s not a movie review post, I am talking about how I was totally flabbergasted by the desi swag and independent voice shown by Actress Bhumi Pednekar in the movie. Bollywood may work with actresses with sexy bods and hot bodies, but this girl just turned the regular filmy world upside down..in the best possible way. Seeing an overweight heroine in a Bollywood flick was not just surprising but refreshing in its own way. Wish life was as easy as the movie where every thing ends with a ‘happily ever after’; but as the heroines of our own life, we girls know the struggle behind weight issues in Indian society. Being an overweight girl myself, I have faced it all and at one point of time, it left me depressed and broken. But today, I am not so. I am learning the art of losing weight not only to have a sexy body but to stay fit and live a healthy lifestyle. This is what actresses like Parineeti Chopra and Sonakshi Sinha are teaching us today. And now this Yash Raj hottie, Bhumi Pednekar has joined the wagon. She reveals on her Instagram, the secrets to her losing weight and staying fit. And people, she looks gorgeous doing it!
“For somebody who stormed into your worlds weighing 89 kg, I can imagine how difficult it can be for you to digest the fact that I am now just 57 kg. Reminds me of those weight-loss advertisements they show on late night television – the excited anchor selling you the dream shape / weight where you make no effort at all. As far as I am concerned, I had to make a serious effort, but it isn’t as insane or Herculean as it is being imagined by many of you. And for all those, who think that ‘losing weight is impossible’ – for you guys – it’s a BIG FAT NO.”
“Since my weight loss, I have been asked by many about how I cracked this – some for curiosity, some for inspiration. I went through an interesting regime that involved some really effective workout routines, and a healthy diet pattern. Thought I’ll share some of these fun and super easy things I did to lose weight with you – every Wednesday – you can check for yourself if it works. I could give you a ‘money back guarantee,’ but it’s the internet… so ;)”
“Since my film released, there was this one question I was always asked – How did you lose your weight? I have spoken about my journey very often. But I didn’t know how to communicate with you guys better… So after a lot of thinking I realized, let’s start sharing some fun things I did to lose weight with you guys. I hope it’s of some use :)) So here is my first post!!!
I had read a lot about – How drinking enough water is important. It absolutely is!!! But how often do we manage drinking 6 to 7 litres of water..not very. I do it now and trust me, water is a boon for your body. I wanted to make this habit a lot more fun, and I found this thing called detox water. It cleanses and detoxifies your body. Lemon not only cleanses your body but also makes it alkaline. It also boosts your immunity. Mint aids digestion and gives the drink some sweetness without any sugar. Cucumber has several benefits – it’s good for your skin, it keeps your body hydrated, and it contains anti inflammatory properties. In short, it’s good for you. Just pop it your sipper and keep sipping on it…one of the things I tried…”
