Navin Waqar has been quite an inspiration in the industry for her fitness, and the actor has finally revealed her much coveted regime for her avid followers on Instagram.

The Bewafa actor took the time out to pen a lengthy not detailing her diet plan as well as her workout routine for those looking to indulge in a fitter lifestyle. “Everyone has different needs when it comes to working out,” she said before diving in, specifying that her “aim is to lower my fat levels.”

“People lift heavy for that (lose weight) but I’m doing a mix of HITT/Tabata/Circuit training for now. It’s hard but it works. It helps build my stamina and endurance big time. Lifting will come later for me. Its gonna take time because fat loss and weight loss are 2 different things,” she explained.

Navin then went on to share details of her diet plan, and we all could take a page or two out of her book!

“You can probably tell from my Instagram stories that I eat a lot so here is what I do: I balance.” We couldn’t agree with her more on this one. Balance is key if you’re looking to establish a consistent, healthy, diet.

“I eat good carbs like brown rice and roasted/steamed veggies. Chicken, fish, eggs and lean meat is a must protein for me because I don’t do shakes,” she shared. And guess what? She has also ditched unhealthy snack options. “I snack on blueberries, sugar free/whole wheat cookies, almonds and dark chocolate.”

She also advocated for clear soups loaded with vegetables. “Clear soups with veggies, brown rice and chicken/sea food are filling and yum so I load up on that big time! I make them at home and it’s super easy.”

Everyone has different needs when it comes to working out. My aim is to lower my fat levels. For that I people lift heavy but I'm doing a mix of HITT/Tabata/Circuit training for now. It's hard but it works. It helps build my stamina and endurance big time. Lifting will come later for me. Its gonna take time because fat loss and weight loss are 2 different things. . Now the diet: you can probably tell from my insta stories that I eat a lot so here is what I do: I balance. I count calories. Eat good carbs like brown rice and roasted/steamed veggies. Chicken, fish, eggs and lean meat is a must protein for me coz I don't do shakes. I snack on blueberries, sugar free/whole wheat cookies, almonds and dark chocolate. I have smoothies once a week. Clear soups with veggies, brown rice and chicken/sea food are filling and yum so I load up on that big time! I make them at home and it's super easy. Overnight oats are great for breakfast.

We all know the benefits of oats and to incorporate them in your daily diet as a breakfast food is one of the smartest move you can make, and Navin agrees. “Overnight oats are great for breakfast. It’ll keep you fuller and give you energy throughout the day,” she said.

“I do fall off the wagon because I love junk food and meetha (sweets) is my kamzoori (weakness),” she admitted. “But I don’t give up. The most important thing is to have fun! If you cant do gym, get a couple of weights and do it at home. Or walk. The point is to be active and consistent.”

There you have it guys. In Navin’s words, “If I can do it, so can you. Also apart from shaping up, your skin is gonna look dope!”
