Dev D actress and yogini, Kalki Koechlin shares her health fundas..

Fitness for me is

: Pretty important.Yoga and swimming are my favourites.

My fitness regime:

I devote an hour to yoga or swimming in a day. I love to do yoga in the morning. I start with surya namaskar. Then I do different sort of stretches. I end with breathing exercises.

My introduction to yoga:

When I was studying drama in London, we had one hour of yoga every week as part of our drama course.

My diet:

I restrict the amount of food I have. I love Indian food like rajma chawal, daal and bhindi.

My best body feature:

My lips.

My worst body feature:

My legs. They are the first place where I put on weight.

The Bollywood hero with the fittest body:

Arjun Rampal.

The Bollywood heroine with the fittest body:

Kangana Ranaut.

The best compliment I have got for my body:

A friend told me that I always look comfortable, If I had to rate my body on the fitness scale of one to ten, I would rate it as: Seven on ten.

The best gym in Bombay:

I am not a fan of gyms.

My influences on my boyfriend Anurag:

I haven’t forced him but I have encouraged him. He is doing yoga now..

My opinion on the size zero trend:

It’s scary to judge your life according to someone on a magazine who is made up to look like that … It's sad.

My opinion on men with six packs:

Six packs is like the maximum. I’d be glad if Anurag is healthy and loses weight. Then we will see.

My advice to aspiring fitness freaks:

If you push yourself to look perfect, you never can. There is always going to be someone more beautiful or more slim. So be yourself.
