Her weighty issues have constantly brought her under the scanner. Do you know she has lost considerable weight to act in films? Let us find out.
First steps to fitness
Sonakshi weighed 90 kgs before her Bollywood stint. It was all due to consuming too much of junk food and no exercise. At that point of time she used to pant even after walking a few steps. After signing her first movie she got the weight loss ball rolling by hitting the gym and following a healthy diet.
Journey at the gym
After living a sedentary lifestyle it was quite difficult for her to sweat it out at the gym. The training at the gym caused her body aches and pain. In spite of that she did not give up. Point to be noted. At this juncture her will power came to play. She was successful in losing a few kilos in a month’s time. This made her more confident as her hard work had shown some positive result.
Type of workout
Along with weight training, spinning, and cardio she also did cycling, swimming, functional training and tennis. Phew!!! She also practised hot yoga three times a week. Hot yoga comprises of exercises done in hot and humid conditions. All this helped her lose weight and get her body toned.
Just like us commoners, Sonakshi too had a tough time in giving up junk food and embracing a healthy diet. She was on a high protein and low carb diet. This was done to balance out her strenuous workouts. She kept herself hydrated by drinking sufficient water throughout the day. Along with hat she had several cups of green tea in a day. To keep her energy high and at the same time help her burn calories she ate small meals every three hours.
Have a look at what she ate throughout the day:
For breakfast she had cereal and milk or whole wheat toast
Mid morning meal included some dry fruits and a cup of green tea
Lunch included typical Indian roti and sabzi with salad
Evening snack was a fruit or a cup of green tea

She successfully lost 30 kgs with her diet, workout and of course her will power. Having a tendency to put on weight easily, she constantly takes care of her diet and workout. She had mentioned in an interview that for healthy hair she eats fish and fish oil supplements; for healthy skin she keeps herself well hydrated.
