I always maintain a food diary. Every time I cheat, I have to write it down as it makes me extremely guilty and motivates me not to do it often.

I always bargain with myself. If I want to eat something unhealthy or have a glass of wine, I make sure it’s been compensated for. So one glass of wine equals a stricter diet the whole week!

 

Being a yogi, teacher and practitioner, even I have days where I just want to sleep some more or skip my practice. I always have the five-second rule, I get onto the mat and then decide what to do.

Cliched as it sounds, breakfast is my favourite meal of the day. I eat a mix of protein — eggs, fruit, dry fruits and a cup of tea.

I always listen to my body. Your body is constantly talking to you. If some diet/fitness regime is working for you, your body will communicate that to you. So always tune in and listen.

Apart from yoga and running, swimming gives me the best results. I use it as a form of cardio and it is the best stress buster. Being a national level swimmer since the age of seven, I have put in several hours of practice daily, for many years now, and I realise that I am reaping the benefits of the sport, till date.
