Sara Ali Khan, once 94 kgs obese and now 55 kgs fit, spilled beans about her transformation from “fat to fit” in an interview with Vogue. Scroll down to know more!
The 23-year-old Bollywood actress has already won hearts of many with her killer looks.
Sara Ali Khan made her debut in the movie ‘Kedarnath’ with co-star Sushant Singh Rajput.
In a recent interview with Vogue, Sara Ali Khan revealed the fitness mantra that worked for her which was simply “eating healthy and working out”, she said.
“The transition from pizza to salad and from lethargy to cardio is how I kick-started my fitness journey. I simply started eating healthy and began working out when in New York,” she said.
“There were so many different types of classes in that city, from functional training to boxing to cycling. But because I was so overweight at the start, it was more about cardio-heavy workouts like walking, cycling and hitting the treadmill—so that I could lose the weight before entering the intermediate forms of exercise,” she added.
In an interview with BBC, Sara Ali Khan revealed about her health condition. High level of hormones in the body, feeling lethargic and emotional eating; all regular PCOD/PCOS (Polycystic ovary disease/syndrome) things that she silently was suffering from.
She spoke about her personal struggles about the time when she was 96 kilos and in last semester of her senior year of college. “I knew I wanted to act,” said Sara. But with that weight, it sure was a far-fetched idea!
Sara said, “I went to Columbia for four years and at the end of the second year, I decided that I really want to act, like I said I have always known, but that realisation coincided with the weigh scale saying that I’m 96 kilos. So, it was a bit difficult. Then it was the senior year of college in America itself that I lost the weight.”
“I was a regular kid. It made it very hard for me to a. lose weight and b. the hormone level was very high. So, as you can see, there is a level of delusion that was in me…I was confident, I was delusional,” she added.
“Jahaan aapko pizza milta hain, wahin aapko protein milta hain. Jahaan pe chocolate milta hain, wahin aapko salad milta hain (On one hand you could eat a pizza and on the other you could have protein, on one hand you could get chocolate and on the other you could eat salad). That was it. So, I lost all the weight that I had gained there and lots more by working out and maintaining a disciplined life,” she said.
Sara is not the only Bollywood kid who had to undergo fat days. Sonakshi Sinha, Alia Bhatt, Parineeti Chopra and Arjun Kapoor, list can go on and on.
But definitely Sara’s story is inspiring as she has not gone back to gaining weight, not even once so far considering she has a health condition like PCOD.
