Body shaming is one of the major issue that is faced by the overweight people in our country, but lots of people take criticism in a very positive way and one of them is Bharti Singh who turned this negative thing into positive by creating a brand image in the world of standup comedy. She has set another trend by losing 15 kilos.
“In the last 30-32 years I haven’t taken care of myself and would eat at an odd time. That caused a lot of issues and I was even at borderline diabetes. I also got asthma during my stint on Khatron Ke Khiladi, and would also get tired really easily. Now, having shed my extra kilos I am feeling so much lighter and don’t even have any health issues,” Bharti said, adding that the pandemic also taught her the importance of being healthy, given people were fighting for life.
In the lockdown when work came to a standstill for everyone around the world, she worked on herself. While many of us wasted time, Bharti Singh took this opportunity to spend time on the fitness regime and shed 15 kilos.
She said that during the second lockdown earlier this year, she had no house help at home, and had to do every chore herself. Getting tired quite easily, she realised that she wasn’t fit and decided to do something about it. “When we were doing Khatra Khatra Khatra, I would often talk to all these actors and they mentioned how they would fast long hours. I decided to give it a try.
While initially, I would crave food late at night, I worked hard on it and now my body has accepted the new change. I don’t follow any diet, I just don’t eat anything between 7 pm-12 pm. I have my regular parathas, eggs, dal-sabzi, everything I have always liked,”
The star who was earlier 96 kgs is today 71kgs. She has come down two sizes and says that she would want to maintain his weight. She also revealed that she isn’t a gym person and this new routine is actually working wonders for her.
Currently seen hosting Dance Deewane 3 and performing on The Kapil Sharma Show, the actor shared that she is proud of her physical transformation, and feels happy seeing herself on-screen. She also likes posting more pictures on social media as the change is there for everyone to see.
“Abhi saans nahi chadhti aur halka halka feel hota hai. Meri diabetes aur asthma bhi control mein aa gaye hain (Now I don’t have problem breathing and feel lighter.
My diabetes and asthma are also under control),” she told a leading daily. Bharti said that his husband, Harsh is not too happy about this change as he used to enjoy playing with her tummy and gets really annoyed when she refuses to eat outside food.
Recently on Dance Deewana she mentioned that she and Harsh were planning to have a baby soon. But because of seeing the wreck because of the pandemic, they are now reconsidering their situation.
