Shehnaaz Gill's inspiring weight loss journey post 'Bigg Boss 13'

Shehnaaz Gill's popularity has grown immensely post her stint in the reality show 'Bigg Boss 13'

Shehnaaz Gill might not have won 'Bigg Boss 13,' but her popularity has grown immensely since her participation in the reality show. Lately, the actor has been turning heads with her epic body transformation and she often posts jaw-dropping pictures on social media. 'Punjab Ki Katrina Kaif,' as people fondly call her, utilised the COVID-19 lockdown for her weight loss journey and it's pretty inspirational. Let's take a look.

The motivation behind her transformation

Shehnaaz, who was a guest on Shilpa Shetty's show 'Shape Of You,' revealed what inspired her to get fit during the lockdown. The actor said that she decided to embark on a transformation journey post her stint at Bigg Boss as people made fun of her weight. She said she wanted to do something new so that people could say, 'Is that Shehnaaz?' The actor made the best use of the COVID-19 lockdown for her transformation.

Debunking the common myth

Shehnaaz revealed that she didn't have an intense workout routine or an exhausting diet plan. The actor said that she consumed the same diet but reduced the portion size.
'After waking up in the morning, I first have haldi water. Now I have started drinking apple cider vinegar water. Post that, I have my breakfast. I sometimes eat green grams, dosa or methi paratha. I have a high-protein breakfast,' she told Shilpa on the show 'Shape Of You.'

Important to keep a check on the quantity

In her first YouTube live, Shehnaaz said it's important to keep a check on the quantity to shed the extra weight.

'My team keeps telling me to stop taking sugar and salt. But all that is bakwas. It's important to keep a check on the quantity. You soon get into a habit of eating less and that's the key to shed the extra weight,' she said.

Strengthening her willpower

In an interview with anchor and talk show host Janice Sequeira, Shehnaaz said that the most crucial step in this fitness journey was strengthening her willpower. The actor mentioned that losing weight is not that difficult if you make up your mind and work on it.

'Losing weight is not that difficult. Because it's up to the individual. If you make up your mind, it will work. It pays off. But if your willpower is weak, no one can do anything about it. I didn't have good offers at first. So, I didn't pay attention to my weight. Also, I was working in Punjab at that time, and weight was not much of an issue there. But now I am getting some offers from Bollywood. For that, I felt the need to lose weight. And so, I made that decision,' she said.

On the work front, Shehnaaz Gill will soon be making her Bollywood debut with 'Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali,' co-starring Salman Khan. The film is scheduled to release in December this year.
