Actor Lara Dutta, who is expecting her first baby early next year has impressed everyone with her fitness regimen. The 32-year-old is not only wowing the fashion watchers but also isn’t compromising on exercise. The brand ambassador for Kellogg’s special K, Lara says her love for fitness reflects in the products she endorses. Read on as she shares her diet and fitness secrets.

What fitness regimen are you following to keep yourself looking fresh as daisy these days?
I keep a positive and simple approach to things, including managing my weight. Yoga is something I can’t live without — I find it rejuvenating and refreshing. It is the best form of exercise for any age group. Apart from yoga, my exercise routine involves push-ups, squats, lunges and other such exercises. Cardio is central to my workout routine.

Spill your diet secrets. Are you a careful eater?
The secret is simple — I eat. I attribute weight management to smart eating. I start my day with a low-fat breakfast. A combination of a balanced diet and regular exercise can help to regulate metabolism. I break my meals into smaller ones and control my portions. Drinking at least 6-8 glasses of water daily is important. This helps me look good and feel special every day.

laraYou recently tweeted about Indian beauty queens losing at the international pageants. So, what was that extra something that helped you or girls like Sushmita Sen, make a mark when no one expected.

Winning the Miss Universe title back in 2000 was a completely life defining moment for me. Some of the new Indian beauty queens have great potential. Apart from working very hard on aspects like your diet, body, language, walk, etc, it is extremely important to keep your levels of self belief and confidence high. Focus on what is unique about you.
