It will not be wrong to say that Shilpa Shetty has got the perfect body in the entire B-town. She is picture-perfect from every angle. Toned, tight, and svelte. Also, her beautiful dressing sense acts as a cherry on top for her fans. She is all that we dream of being.
But not many people know that her mother had revealed that she was an ugly duckling who grew into an elegant swan. In her growing years, she was a gangly tall young girl with volleyball bruises on her legs. She had to work very hard to be what she is today.
Shilpa Shetty is also redefining the idea of fitness in Bollywood where it matters to be the right size. The actress came back in shape within a year, post-pregnancy, just by eating right and dedicating one hour every day for exercise.
She practices what she preaches: Yoga on a daily basis, regular exercise, healthy food, lots of laughter and wants people to know she’s doing it for the right reasons.
Even at 43, Shilpa Shetty looks 20 something. Let’s delve into Shilpa Shetty's beauty tips, diet plan, and fitness routine.
Shilpa Shetty's diet plan
The beautiful actress likes to eat a balanced diet and prefers wholesome foods to keep herself fit, slender, skinny and healthy. Get inspired and learn how she does it.
"I’m not scared of aging because I feel really good from within. For beautiful skin and hair, you have to nourish yourself internally. I follow my grandmother's advice of soaking and eating almonds, figs and walnuts for long and strong hair. I love chia seeds and flax seeds and drink lots of coconut water. It’s my favorite healthy drink," said Shilpa.
Shilpa starts her morning with warm water and lemon juice, followed by breakfast before 9 am, lunch around 1 pm, and dinner before 8 pm. She also suggests avoiding eating anything raw after 6 pm. Interestingly, she has dietary restrictions for her son as well - who aren't allowed to take aerated drinks, and is given buffalo milk, as it has more iron content.

Shilpa Shetty's beauty tips
Shilpa Shetty’s beauty secrets include a basic rule which has always been less is more and never overdoes it with cosmetics and other skin products.
"Don’t overload your skin with fancy products. My mum, who is 57 and has amazing skin, says the more you use when you’re young, the worse it gets when you age."
No matter how late she comes home, she always removes her make-up. She mixes pure coconut oil with olive oil/Johnson baby oil, smoothes it over her skin and wipes it off with cotton wool. It’s naturally soothing to the skin. Besides it, the diva believes in the importance of sleeping eight hours a day and never use soap on your face - it’s too harsh.
For her sleek hair, she makes sure she shampoo’s every two days and changes shampoos frequently to avoid build-up.
Shilpa Shetty's fitness routine
The actress who’s been a fitness icon ever since she sashayed into the industry swears by yoga and practices it for about an hour, at least 3 to 4 times a week. It is interesting to note that the actor encountered yoga a few years back on the recommendation of her physiotherapist as a cure to her neck pain.
But over the years, the actor grew so fond of it that she became the poster-girl of the exercise form and released DVDs promoting the same. The actor feels that yoga has the power to soothe the mind-body and soul.
When it comes to fitness, Shilpa Shetty Kundra is an inspiration for all those who want to remain in shape. Be it yoga or logical diets, she is definitely the one to look up to for all things healthy. And now, with the launch of her own YouTube fitness channel and fitness app, her secrets are out in the open for the world to see.
"My app is for all those people who think fitness and health is a difficult feat to achieve. It is not rocket science, guys. It is simple. You have to make small lifestyle changes to lose weight. You just have to have the will to do it and the discipline to carry it forward. You need discipline for any kind of success - be it weight loss or not."
The super beauty executes more or less all workouts to have a sculpted body figure. She opts for heavyweights during these sessions, to strengthen her muscles. She believes in meditation after a workout, to relieve the stress.
"I keep my heart happy, stay active and make sure that I eat right, and chew my food. When your heart is happy, your mind is happy and vice versa," shared her secret.
From being an A-list Bollywood actress to a fitness guru and a busy mom, we admire her ability to handle whatever comes her way.
Although she's been away from the silver screens for a long time now, Shilpa has impressed the fashion industry with her appearances and fashion choices at Super Dancer Chapter 3 that she's been judging with Anurag Basu and Geeta.
Meanwhile, on the work front, Shilpa is all set to make her much-awaited comeback with Sabbir Khan's Nikamma. Shilpa will be seen sharing screen space with Abhimanyu Dassani and newbie Shirley Shetia. The actress had taken to her social media account to announce the news.
