Kangana's Diet Plan
Kangana is a healthy eater where her food is only nutritious. Oily food is a strict No-No in her diet. Her breakfast mainly consists of porridge or a bowl of whole-grain cereal. Oatmeal is rich in fiber and helps in controlling the cholesterol level of the body. Whole grains are also high in fiber and help in keeping energy levels high throughout the day. In between meals, Kangana likes to snack on fresh fruits and she also drinks protein shake to meet the body's protein requirement. Her lunch consists of salad, rice, roti, daal and boiled vegetables. Kangana believes in eating a light dinner and so, she usually eats vegetable soup and salad at night.
It takes a lot of time, effort and hard work to lose weight. Gaining weight purposely and then losing it isn’t easy. Hats off to Kangana who made it possible just to fit in the role of late Jayalalithaa. She is still trying to get her stamina back and we wish her all the best.
