    What kind of fitness routine do you usually follow?

    I follow a strict workout plan and exercise 6 days a week, except when I am unwell. Cardio includes 20 minutes of treadmill, 10 minutes of cross trainer, and 20 minutes of cycling. For muscle training, day 1 has upper body workout, day 2 has abs, day 3 has legs and lower body, day 4 is reserved for gluteus maximus (butt) workout, day 5 for upper body and day 6 consists of abs and gluteus maximus workouts. But, routine can create monotony, so I also include kick-boxing, a brisk walk etc. to bring variation. Image Source: Adfactors PR

    How do you supplement your diet with your workout?

    I refrain from using supplements. The food that I eat gives all the required nutrition to my body. I mix veggies with meat and I eat six to eight small meals to boost my metabolism. I like to have a huge breakfast that includes porridge, eggs, toast and fruits. Apart from this, I consume a lot of water throughout the day. Image Source: Moviestimex.com
