Bollywood diva Taapsee Pannu is a self-confessed foodie who says she lives to eat. However, she would also like to find alternatives for all the unhealthy food. The petite actress, in a video posted on the YouTube channel PinkVilla, has revealed what she eats in a day to stay fit, healthy and glowing.
Taapsee drinks a litre of warm water on an empty stomach and eats a few almonds or walnuts as soon as she wakes up. The actress says that these help in flushing out toxins from the body. She then enjoys a big cup of refreshing green tea. After that, Taapsee drinks some cucumber juice to make her body alkaline. After hydrating her body enough, the actress eats a nutritious breakfast. However, she consumes all these in two hours giving enough time for everything to digest well. Taapsee doesn’t have particular times to have lunch or dinner. She says she eats whenever she is hungry. Besides, she likes to munch on healthy oatmeal bars or dry fruit bars. She, however, doesn’t consume protein bars or shakes as she thinks protein shakes aren’t healthy enough.
Taapsee who is in great shape says she doesn’t consume any medicine or tablets to reduce the fat content in the body. She prefers taking care of her body in a healthy and organic way. The actress says she doesn’t eat anything after 8 in the evening. She prefers a light dinner mostly consisting of soups. She doesn’t avoid rice from her diet. Milk, yoghurt and paneer too are part of her daily diet for a healthy dose of lactose and calcium. However, Taapsee, admits she is a big fan of icing cake and forgets about her diet to enjoy a slice of cake occasionally.
Taapsee is a breakfast lover who tries to include eggs as much as possible. Besides, she loves masala dosa as well. She hydrates her body with fresh tender coconut water. Taapsee says she prefers having regular meals of rice and curries. She thinks a combination of healthy diet and proper work out is what keeps one healthy and fit. Taapsee says that though there are various shortcuts to maintain a fit body, they are not long-lasting. She mostly eats salads and soups after a heavy lunch. Moreover, she loves including lots of seafood too in her diet.
Taapsee drinks lots of water to keep her body hydrated. Besides, she enjoys black coffee as well. More than hitting the gym, Taapsee prefers indulging in a sports activity. She thinks that sports activities can relax and rejuvenate the mind besides keeping the body fit. The actress enjoys puri and parathas as well. Taapsee is of the opinion that clothes too can make you look and feel confident. She says she feels motivated when she wears her favourite outfits and enjoys herself in front of the mirror.
Meanwhile, the comments posted by Mohit Sharma, a social media user, below this video too has garnered attention. He claims that he is a biochemist and a fitness enthusiast. Mohit says though he understands that Taapsee’s video isn’t a scientific one, there are lots of misinformation in it. He says he did some research before sharing his ideas about Taapsee’s diet. Mohit notes that there aren’t any toxins in the human body that need to be flushed out. Though it is important to drink water on an empty stomach in the morning, it is a misunderstanding to think that some foods can flush out toxins from body. Mohit points out that it is not healthier to avoid gluten from the diet unless one suffers from celiac disease. Similarly, one shouldn’t avoid lactose as well. However, one could avoid drinking milk if they consume paneer.
Mohit says that one should do a little research and not blindly follow unscientific methods or diets that are followed by someone else. One should eat only when they are hungry. Research has proven that eating small amounts of food every two hours would improve metabolism. Moreover, it hasn’t been scientifically or medically proven that your body would turn alkaline if it isn’t naturally acidic. The body, meanwhile, has the natural ability to maintain homeostasis.
