Priyanka Chopra’s Diet

Belonging to a Punjabi family, Chopra is passionate about food. She has said many a times during interviews that she loves food.

She is blessed with a great metabolism and does not stack up pounds easily. She has previously said that she is not weight conscious and does not mind eating well. To fulfill her body’s daily protein and mineral requirements, she reportedly consumes a lot of fruits and vegetables.

Apart from a lean body, the actress has a great skin, too! The secret of her glowing skin is pretty simple – hydration.

Chopra says she makes sure she drinks enough water and juices to keep her hydrated throughout the day. Coconut water is one of her favorite beverages.

She is said to refrain from eating oily and deep-fried foods and opt for home-cooked healthy meals. She has a sweet tooth and allegedly indulgences in cakes and chocolates on weekends. She is also fond of tandooris. Here is an example of what Chopra might eat in a day.

Breakfast: Egg whites, oats, and skimmed milk, Snacks: A glass of coconut water and nuts, Lunch:Chapattis, veggies, dal, and salad, Snacks: Sprouted salad or turkey sandwich, Dinner: Fish or grilled chicken, soup, and veggies.

Priyanka Chopra’s Workout Routine

The beauty with the sculpted figure does not put on weight easily and so avoids intense workouts.

Chopra is not a gym freak and reportedly hates spending long hours in the gym. She is said to work out for an hour, four times a week.

Her workout is simple and effective. The secret of her fitness is hitting the gym just for one hour to do the exact number of exercises required.

She concentrates on strength training and flexibility training, according to reports. She practices yoga, and her favorite poses are Half Lord of the Fishes Pose, Warrior Pose, and Tree Pose. They enhance her body’s flexibility. Yoga keeps her physically as well as mentally fit.When she is not going to gym, she apparently does running and spinning.

Chopra’s workout routine is reportedly as follows: Running on the treadmill for 15 minutes, push-ups followed by reverse lunges, 20-25 bench jumps and 20-25 reverse crunches, 60-second plank hold and 20-25 bicep curls with light weights.

Priyanka Chopra gives the most credit to her genetic inheritance, however. She told Zuri Hall of E! News, “I have great Indian genes!”

“You know, I’m lazy,” she admitted. “I want to take advantage of the fact that I have a great metabolism. When I start getting fat I’ll work on it!”

She continued, “I like food, and I don’t like the gym, and as long as I look like this without doing anything, why bother?”
