Sara wanted to get back in shape
"There was no weight gain. She (Sara Ali Khan) had simply taken a break, and had gone to London. When she came back, she had to shoot for [a chat show], and had other commitments. She also had to walk the ramp. So she wanted to [get back into shape]," says the nutritionist, who has been monitoring Sara Ali Khan's fitness and diet for years.
How she did it
Revealing how Sara managed to get back in shape in only two weeks, Dr Siddhant Bhargava said, “She was on a largely calorie-restricted diet. Usually, she consumes 1,700 calories, but we brought it down to 1,200. While cutting calories, we ensured she was put on an extremely high protein diet. Also, since fibre is needed to [digest] protein, we added an adequate amount of it to her plate. Carbohydrates were limited to one meal alone. She was on 100 grams of protein, 70 grams of carbs and about 40 grams of fats. She was also working out like a beast.”

Weight issues have always be a struggle for me, so really thank you @dr.siddhant.bhargava and @food.darzee for keeping me on track. Bye bye holiday calories but most importantly peace out with the guilt. Fitness is a journey so just keep going.”
