The super-food I swear by: Home-cooked food!
If I didn't have to worry about getting fat, I would: Be eating red velvets (cupcakes) everyday.
My quick-fix fitness mantra:There is no quick-fix! Fitness is something that requires consistency... However, if it's a desperate situation, cut out carbs in the evenings.
Ve-gan or we can't?
Ve-gan. It's a healthy and fantastic way to live. But I love my meat too much right now. Who knows, maybe in the future!

My quick-fix fitness mantra: An hour of spinning and a big leafy salad is a quick fix for toned abs and legs.
Ve-gan or we can't? Ve-gan. I am a vegan because of allergies to food and animal protein, so I really don't have a choice. Would I be vegan by choice? No. Because certain dishes do taste exciting with eggs, cheese and dairy.

Jennifer Aniston's arms and legs, Jessica Biel's upper body and Priyanka's waist
My mom always says...
'Get your hand out of the Lindor Dark Chocolate jar!'
What keeps me going...
I am a slave to habit, so staying true to a regimen is not difficult. But I do have a problem with indoor gym workouts and being cooped up inside. I prefer outdoor sports or a brisk walk in the open.
My favourite time of day to exercise...
Early mornings. I am not an evening person. Besides, with traffic, I would never make it to an evening workout in time!
I exercise to...
House Music and Electronica.
Fitness gyaan: Work out in a group or join a class if you are not motivated - it really improves your consistency with your regimen and makes the class competitive.

My quick-fix fitness mantra: 10 days of working out and I can fix most problems!

I don't think a vegan diet is healthy. Our bodies haven't evolved to survive only on plants.

Hrithik's biceps

'Are you sure you're eating enough?'

Self-motivation. If I know I have to do something, I do it.

Protein shakes: Easy to carry around and taste good, especially the chocolate-flavoured ones.
If I didn't have to worry about getting fat, I would: Eat lots of cheese, pizzas, desserts and creamy pastas more often.
My quick-fix fitness mantra
Don't think too much and just get on with it!
Vegan or we can't?
We can't. I love food too much to go vegan or even vegetarian for that matter. There's no way, I would go the Vegan way.
I wish I had...
A body like Arnold Schwarzenegger, but a much smaller version
My mom always says...
'Today happens to be a religious day, try not to eat meat.'
What keeps me going:
Self-Motivation. Part of the reason is my profession and the other part is that [keeping fit] makes me happy.
My favourite time of day to exercise:
Mornings, as it sets a great tone for the day and makes me feel energetic throughout the day.

Live and to be happy, to be energetic, to look good, feel good, and so that I fit into my 'M' sized T-shirts and carry them off to the T.
