Alia Bhatt’s Weight Loss Diet And Workout – How She Lost 16 kg In 3 Months September 28, 2018

Say “Alia Bhatt,” and 99% of the guys in a room will melt like butter! Alia Bhatt caught everybody’s attention when she debuted in Karan Johar’s Student of the Year (2012). And over the years, we have seen her evolve as an actor and a collaborator. Be it a rom-com, a coming of age movie, or a YouTube video, Alia Bhatt has done it all with equal grace and effort. She has proven time and again that she is not just another “daughter of a famous father” and that she deserves a spot in the limelight.

But she was not always the Alia Bhatt we know. She was a chubby teenager who dreamed of acting in the movies. And to make her dream come true, she had to shed 16 kg (35 pounds) in 3 months. How did she do it? What’s Alia Bhatt’s diet and workout plan? Find out in this post and get inspired to live a healthy life. Swipe up!

What Motivated Alia Bhatt To Lose Weight?

Alia was a girl with big dreams and goals. She knew she had to lose weight if she wanted to kick-start her career as a leading lady in Karan Johar’s movie. She weighed about 68 kg, and according to her height and age, she was 20 kg overweight.

When she auditioned for the stylish character of Shanaya, along with 500 other auditionees, she knew she had to step up her game. Also, Karan Johar was very upfront about her weight and wanted her to lose about 20 kg.

In an interview, Alia revealed that being labeled as too big for a role did hit her hard, but that did not stop her from working for it. She said, “It was sheer pain. I felt as if I was an ugly duckling. At first, I was embarrassed, but later felt angry that I had gone to meet a director in the shape I was in. I decided to shed weight first, meet him and take the role. Only that would redeem my self-respect.”

Nothing could stop Alia from getting what she wanted. Here’s her weight loss diet that’s super healthy and works well for her.

Alia Bhatt’s Weight Loss Diet

Alia Bhatt’s weight loss diet mostly includes all organic and healthy foods. She loves to eat and never misses a chance to have anything sweet. She loves Pooja Dhingra’s Le 15 Patisserie and Chef Kelvin Cheung’s delectable cakes. She said, “I was put on to a personal fitness instructor, who put me on a diet. So all I ate was vegetables and chicken and gave up everything that I loved to eat.”

But movie stars have to live a disciplined life, and she soon learned to eat everything in moderation. She consumes 6-8 meals and includes a source of protein, healthy fats, veggies, fruits, and fresh fruit juices in her diet. She revealed in an interview, “I make it a point to have eight meals a day. That way, I can limit my portion sizes and food gets digested easily. This diet has worked for me.”

Here’s Alia Bhatt’s diet plan:

 

  • Breakfast: A hot cup of herbal tea or coffee without sugar + a bowl of vegetable poha or an egg white sandwich.
  • Mid-Morning: A bowl of fruit (mostly papaya) or one idli with a bowl of sambar.
  • Lunch: 1 roti without ghee + lots of vegetables + 1 cup daal + curd or vegetable quinoa with chicken
  • Evening Snack: A cup of sugar-free tea or coffee + 1 one idli with a bowl of sambar
  • Dinner: 1 roti without ghee + a bowl of vegetables + 1 cup daal and occasionally a grilled chicken breast.

Along with a good diet, Alia Bhatt also works out. She trains with celebrity trainer Yasmin Karachiwala and is a self-proclaimed Pilates girl. Here’s her 7-day workout plan that works wonders for her.
