How do you resist the temptation of food?

I don’t resist any of my food temptations or cravings. I have days when I can eat whatever I want and feel like eating. On other days it’s just me counting on my will power to remind myself that I have the weekend to eat what I’m craving for.

What do you eat during the festive season?

I have anything which is usually home-cooked and, is one of the star dishes during the festivities made by my family or relatives.

How does UR Coorgi background influence UR eating habits?

I’m used to following an eating schedule every day because for a significant part of my life I’ve lived in a hostel. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are a must. But now since I’m in the industry, my food habits are all over the place! I wouldn’t say my Coorgi background has influenced my food habits. I would rather say I go with the flow. If my trainer tells me to eat or avoid certain foods – I follow the advice religiously.

Which top 5 foods do you avoid?

I try and avoid sugar and I don’t eat white rice. I’m less of a carbs person and therefore avoid anything high in carbs. I try and avoid junk food altogether and include good fats and high-protein foods in my diet at all times!

What U eat is crucial for UR health. Many health conditions are linked to the type of food U fuel UR body with. Being mindful of UR food choices can help U elevate UR health and URLife!
