Bollywood fitness: Celebrity weight loss regimes

Showbiz and size zero are synonymous and don't we wish to be as 'slim' as Priyanka Chopra and don a bikini as confidently as Kareena Kapoor?

Well, it's all a matter of hard work, sweat, sacrifice, lots of cardio, plenty of weight training and sometimes even yoga. Once upon a time, away from the spotlight these artists were just like us mere mortals, but then something changed for them. Or rather they changed something for themselves. Switching to healthier diets, maintaining stringent workouts and observing certain daily fitness habits - are all power for the course. Let's take a look at some of our favourites from Bollywood, and their celebrity weight loss regimes.

Kareena Kapoor
Rewind a decade ago, she was 'curvy' but she wasn't the Queen Bee of B. Fast forward and she is one of the highest paid actresses. She made the drastic change from a non-veg diet to only veg diet followed by her famous hard core yoga sessions. The result: Size zero, flawless skin, ageless beauty and the ruling Queen of the Industry.

Bebo's fitness mantras
- Soups, green vegetables salads, fruits, yogurt are all incorporated in her daily diet.
- Not to forget food with low calories, rich in proteins, vitamins and minerals.
- Lastly, yoga and cardio exercises (such as the famous Surya Namaskara 50 times)

Salman Khan
Anyone and everyone wants to be like this Khan (even secretly). All guys at one point desired ripping their shirt off, surrounded by gorgeous girls screaming out your name. Cardio, discipline and two hours of dedication at the gym ensures a body every guy would kill for and every girl would die for.

Priyanka Chopra
She may have been crowned Miss World, but she had a long way to go to be at the top of her game. She may be coy about her fitness mantra, but she strongly recommends yoga and one hour at the gym. And we all knew she had arrived in Bollywood when she stepped out of the water in a golden bikini in Dostana.
