She also keeps herself hydrated with water or coconut water, and always carries a bottle of water in her bag when shooting.

Still, she follows a strict workout regime to keep her body lean and strong. Her workout is a mix of yoga, weight training, and cardio. She loves yoga as it calms her and also makes her flexible. She also started doing Pilates to strengthen her core.

She hydrates herself with antioxidant-rich herbal teas, fruit juices, and coconut water.

She also likes to include other activities like swimming, dancing, kickboxing, and Ashtanga yoga to keep her workouts interesting. Currently, Pilates is her favorite workout.
This smoking-hot fashion icon was not always like this. Sonam Kapoor performed the wonderful feat of losing over 35 kilos in 2 months and has successfully maintained her slim figure since her “Saawariya” days.
Diet- Sonam believes in moderation and never lets herself go hungry. She eats every two hours but depends on nutrient-dense low-calorie foods to keep her hunger at bay. She starts her day with warm lemon water and a teaspoon of honey, eats salads, lightly roasted or grilled lean meats with multigrain chappatis or brown rice, oatmeal, and other healthy foods. She maintains that hydration is very important for a healthy body and drinks a lot of water throughout the day. She satisfies her cravings with dark chocolate and snacks on fruits, nuts or dry fruits when peckish. Being Punjabi though, Sonam does allow herself to indulge once in a while.
Workout- Sonam also likes to do a mix of different workout routines to stay motivated. She loves Kathak and dances twice a week. Apart from that, her workouts are a mix of swimming, power yoga, pilates, cardio and strength training. Sonam never misses a workout and likes staying active all the time by going for a run or playing squash when unable to workout.
The days have long gone by when Parineeti was overshadowed by her cousin Priyanka’s popularity. Parineeti Chopra has now made an image of her own in Bollywood with her applaudable acting and her transformation from a chubby debut actress to a stunning diva.
Diet- Parineeti follows a strict low-carb low-fat and high-protein diet regime to maintain her figure. She eats dinner two hours before sleeping and stays hydrated all day with water, green tea and occasionally a fruit juice. Her diet is free from oily fatty foods and junk and comprises proteins like egg whites and chicken, nutrient dense foods like salads and fibrous foods like multigrain bread, roti, lentils, and brown rice. She occasionally indulges in her favorite pizzas and chocolates but makes sure to balance it out with lighter meals and extra-intense workouts the next day.
Workout-Parineeti, like her sister, isn’t very fond of the gym (is that a ‘Chopra’ thing?) So she mixes her gym workouts up with other workouts like yoga, dancing, swimming and Kalaripayattu (a form of martial arts from Kerala). She starts her day with a morning jog and makes sure she gets some form of physical exercise every day.
How can we forget including the gorgeous Sunny Leone in this list of hottest Bollywood actresses? Sunny Leone is a stunner with her beauty and her curvaceous figure. She does admit that she has to work hard to maintain herself as she is a Punjabi and finds it hard to give up food.

She also drinks a lot of water throughout the day to flush the toxins out of her system. She snacks on fruits and nuts and includes a lot of natural protein sources in her diet. Apart from that, she loves antioxidant-rich foods to keep her skin glowing and metabolism going. She also derives her nutrients from fresh fruits and vegetables.
