TV stars including Mreenal Deshraj, Ankit Bathla and Jasmin Bhasin don’t ditch their fitness regime no matter where they are — including vacations and outdoor schedules.

Some alter their diet while others try to indulge in physical exercise. Some resort to yoga while others prefer to go on a run. Here’s what all the actors do to stay fit.

* Mreenal Deshraj
“When I am working and don’t have time to go to the gym, I usually workout at home. I try to do at least 30-45 minute of an intense workout. Whereas when we are shooting outdoor or on a holiday, I take care of my diet and try to do some kind of physical exercise.”

* Arif Zakaria
“Fitness doesn’t need a gym or an expansive space. The world is tailored to walk, run or sit on a mat and pontificate. I try and do all of this when I travel. Of course, I also try to find a tennis court to play.”

“As an actor, I always try to manage my day and schedule it accordingly. I swim and go to the gym daily at least six days a week. Fitness is the one thing which gives me a high in life. If I’m on outdoor shoots and not able to workout, I try to run and do parkour workouts outdoor.”

* Amal Sehrawat
“Personally, I don’t like gymming, though I have to hit the gym for the sake of my packs. I love running on the beach or gardens. I prefer the stairs over the lift. During my outdoor shoots, I stay outdoors.”

* Ira Sone
“I have a love-hate relationship with fitness and diet. I love to eat as I am a foodie but I also love to hit the gym, to get results you need to balance both. On days, when I can’t hit the gym, I make sure to control what I eat and try to walk after all meals. But as an actor, I need to be fit so that I can work for 12 hours.”

“I do yoga and a little bit of cardio to keep myself fit because it’s very important for me to feel healthy from the inside.”

* Ankit Bathla
“It’s a very interesting story, when I can’t go to the gym, my trainer comes on the set and we work out with the weights of the crane. I also believe that there are so many functional activities that can be done without a gym… burpees and the best is our Surya Namaskar.”

* Malhar Pandya
“You can be fit with yoga and a good diet. As an actor, if I say fitness is very important to me, it doesn’t mean that I have to be muscular. It’s good to be lean because as an actor you can fit in any role or clothes. Even if I would have not been an actor, I would have been fit. When I go outdoors for a shoot, there are certain kinds of exercises which can be done there itself, which don’t not need a gym, so I do those.” (IANS)

Study Says, Limiting Mealtimes Increases Motivation for Exercise

Maintaining a healthy eating routine, with regular mealtimes or fasting, could also encourage motivation for exercise in overweight people

Limiting access to food might increase levels of hormone – ghrelin, which might also increase your motivation to exercise, said a new research.

The study, published in the Journal of Endocrinology suggested that a surge in levels of the appetite-promoting hormone – ghrelin, after a period of fasting prompted mice to initiate voluntary exercise.

These novel findings indicate that better diet control, for example limiting food intake to mealtimes or fasting intermittently, could help overweight people maintain a more effective exercise routine, lose weight and avoid debilitating complications such as diabetes and heart disease.

“Our findings suggest that hunger, which promotes ghrelin production, may also be involved in increasing motivation for voluntary exercise when feeding is limited,” said author Yuji Tajiri from the Kurume University in Japan.

“Therefore, maintaining a healthy eating routine, with regular mealtimes or fasting, could also encourage motivation for exercise in overweight people,” Tajiri said.

Ghrelin, often referred to as the ‘hunger hormone’, stimulates appetite through actions on the brain reward circuitry that increases motivation to eat.

It has also been reported to be essential for endurance exercise by increasing metabolism to meet the energy demands of prolonged exercise.

Although previous studies have suggested a relationship between ghrelin and exercise, it was not known whether the hormone levels have a direct effect on motivation to exercise.

In this study, the research team investigated the relationship between exercise and the hormone levels in mice.

Food intake and wheel-running activity were compared in mice given free access to food with those fed only twice a day for a limited time.

Although both groups ate a similar amount of food, the restricted mice ran significantly more.

Mice genetically altered to have no ghrelin and on the restricted feeding diet, ran less than the mice which were given free access, however, this could be reversed by administering the hormone.

Furthermore, mice were given free access to food and given ghrelin also ran significantly more.
