Amrita Rao registered her presence as the lucky mascot for various films with hits like Ishq Vishq and Main Hoon Na. The lissome lady is now concentrating on fewer projects rather than competing with the bare-dare brigade. Here she shares the secret to her beauty and fitness.

My Day Begins with:

I am an early riser and am usually up by 7.30 am. The first thing I do is brush my teeth. Since I am a teetotaller, I drink fresh fruit juices and a glass of lukewarm water. Breakfast is light and I prefer eating ghar ka khana.

Daily Diet:

I am a pure vegetarian. Lunch consists of two chapattis, green vegetables, sabzi and dal with rice! Dinner is again the same. I love to eat mushrooms and cabbage. I am not a party person so I am faithful to my mom's khana. My favorite cuisine is our Mangalorian cuisine and I love Thai food. Before I go to sleep, I drink a glass of milk, which not only provides me with a good, sound sleep, but also supplements me with all the required ingredients!

 Amrita Rao's approach to health and diet is a very balanced once

Binge time:

Well! As such I don't believe in fasting or binging. I eat in moderation and I eat to live and not live to eat. It is not good to starve yourself or overstuff your own body. Love your body because if it remains in good shape, you'll always be healthy. I don't tend to put on weight.

Workout Schedule:

I must confess I am lucky in this regard. I can eat what I like. However, I have a personal trainer, who comes home thrice in a week. I usually work-out to tone my body with dumbbells. I don't work-out on weights. I primarily do aerobics and stretching to keep myself fit. Luckily, I am a healthy girl so working out is not a must for me!

Tips on Healthy Living:

It is very important to understand your own body structure. Eat what you like, but eat in moderation. Avoid junk foods, cheese and fats. Eating outside home can create lots of complications. So try to eat food made at home. It is not only hygienic but also tastes so well apart from being healthy.

Develop healthy habits by jogging and walking that extra mile. Work-out in gym only if you feel it is necessary for you otherwise please don't kill yourself with weights for hours. Beauty lies in being healthy so they say – early to bed, early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise!
