Parineeti Chopra is all set to tie the knot with Raghav Chadha over the weekend in Udaipur. The couple arrived at the destination on Friday. The Bollywood actress got engaged to her partner this year in May. Parineeti made her debut in 2011 with Ladies vs Ricky Bahl. She has also acted in notable films, however, her weight loss journey made headlines when she lost 28 Kilos.
While speaking to Elle, the actress said, “I was obese when I came back from London after college. But when I started working at YRF (Yash Raj Films, where she was in public relations), I began gymming and my body reacted.” However, after her career in acting took off, she found it difficult to make time for the gym.
“I started doing kalaripayattu with a trainer who would come home. It’s a martial art form and all it requires is an empty room. Once I lost weight, I started going to the gym again because now I feel like it. My workouts are more focused now. I want to achieve a particular shape and tone specific muscles. It’s fun. You feel so much better about yourself and when people react, you feel even better,” she added.
Speaking of her food choices, she revealed that she is allergic to milk and eggs. The actress said that she would gain weight even after eating healthy. After this, she went to a clinic where she undertook some blood tests to understand her food allergies. It was after this that Parineeti made a shift her food choices.
“It would have been really easy for me to starve myself and eat bland food to lose weight. But I can’t do that forever, my attention span is very short. What I’m doing now is more long-term. Now I know which foods suit me and which ones are harder to digest (milk, eggs). I plan my meals accordingly. People ask me what I’ve given up and the answer is nothing, I eat everything but I know how to balance it out now,” said the bride-to-be Parineeti.
