Akshay Kumar believes in staying fit in the most natural way. The 49-year-old actor swears by outdoor activities such as parkour, functional training and martial arts.

"Only one thing which I have followed in my life, which I would like to share with you all is that eat your food before sunset. It will make a lot of difference," the actor said while sharing his biggest fitness tip. This is good because the body needs around three to four hours to digest the food before sleeping. He also doesn't drink or party.

Alia Bhatt mainly focuses on eating properly. "My only mantra is to eat healthily and properly. The most important thing is to feed yourself right kind of nutrition, right rest and you have to feel internally happy. What will be the point of working out if I will be sitting down and doing nothing? You have to feel internally happy and positive," the Dear Zindagi actress had shared during a book launch.

Actress Katrina Kaif's secret behind her amazing body is non-vegetarian meals and perfect fitness plans. Kaif revealed in a recent book launch, "My diet and fitness mantra depends on what I want to achieve, whatever role or the desired result is. So, whether you want to look little more toned or want a more athletic look, you want to look very thin for a role, or you want just look normal like a soft woman who does not want too much of definition, I change the plan accordingly."

The credit to Shilpa Shetty's great body goes to yoga. According to BeFitandFine, the actress explained, "I have tried to bust pre-conceived notions about Indian food. People think Indian food is fattening and high on sodium, which is untrue. A simple dish like rajma chawal is a complete meal; it has the right amount of protein, nine amino acids; it's equivalent to eating an egg. But people are tucking into quinoa instead."

She believes in a balanced diet by avoiding white and brown carbs like rice, pasta and sugar and prefers olive oil for cooking bread and consumes protein shake, eight black raisins and two dates after working out. She stays away from sugary fizzy drinks and loves green tea.
