Richa’s Fitness secrets:
Everyone has a different body structure. So follow what suits you. My structure is broad so I can never be too thin.
A lot depends on your diet. If you’re vegetarian, keep a check on whether your diet provides complete nutrition.
Also, you don’t ave to be a non-vegetarian to be fit. A lot of vegetarians are extremely fit. Lara Dutta and Shahid Kapoor are perfect examples.
Exercising more will not make you lose more weight. You body may get under stress and could begin storing fat instead.
Exercising too much can make your face lose moisture. Consequently, your skin will sag.
Eat your meals on time and see to it that you get adequate sleep.
If you’ve eaten rice all your life then you don’t need to quit it to lose weight.
Involve yourself in some physical activity for a healthy body and mind.
