Deepika Padukone: I understand my body and I know what it reacts to, so I always eat well-balanced meals. I like to try different cuisines - South Indian is my favourite. I just don’t go overboard. I tend to put on weight when I eat too much dessert and sweets, so I have to keep it under control. So if I get a dessert, I share it with someone but I never deprive myself.
Shilpa Shetty: I don't avoid any food. My calorie intake is about 2,000 per day. I don't need that much carbs because I don't do manual work. I eat non-vegetarian food every day except Thursday. My breakfast is a bowl of porridge and normal tea. Then I work out (three-four times a week). After I return, I've a protein shake, two dates and eight black raisins. My lunch at 2.30 p.m. comprises one roti (bread) made of five different kinds of grain. And I must have ghee (butter) on my roti, can't do without ghee on my roti, vegetables done in refined oil, chicken and daal.
Then if I've a craving for something sweet I have a kulfi or a chocolate. I've green tea late afternoon and I've lots of hot water throughout the day. Evening, I've a flavoured soya milk. Then a cup of tea, no food until dinner, unless I feel hungry, then maybe an omelette sandwich. Dinner at 9.30 - lettuce salad with pomegranate or apple. And I avoid roti in the night. I'm a late sleeper.
Bipasha Basu: I follow no diet regime at all. I just work out like crazy in the gym and keep on my toes the whole day.
