Bollywood actress Nushrat Bharucha does not believe in the “size zero” fad. She says the concept of fitness is more beyond having a size zero body type.

“Being fit does not mean one has to be a size zero. There needs to be a balance and one needs to understand what works for his/her body type and fix their own benchmark. Eventually it is all about how one feels on the inside, whether you are energized enough to survive the day and not feel too lethargic at any point,” the 33-year-old told IANS over an e-mail interaction.

After entertaining the audience with her acting skills in movies like “Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety” and “Pyaar Ka Punchnama”, Nushrat Bharucha has now joined international chef Vikas Khanna for his three episode web series called “Kitchen, Khanna and Konverstations”.

She got featured in the first episode of the show, where both the celebrities cooked healthy meals with the addition of Quaker Oats.

Sharing her fitness routine, Nushrat Bharucha said: “When I am shooting and when I am on the set, it depends on the film and what I am training for…my meals completely depended on what my trainer advised me to eat. Whether he tells me to follow a strict no carbs diet or an ‘only-fruits’ diet, I achieve results by sheer motivation. ”

She also stressed on the importance of meals in an individual’s daily life and also gave some health tips to youngsters.

“Eating is as important as eating right. I feel that millennials today are very pressed for time and are constantly on the go. I genuinely wish there were 42 hours in a day because I have so much work to do. Often when on the run, meals are skipped, and we feel that a meal skipped means we are not putting on any weight.

“But the truth is that it is a bad idea! However, we ignore that if we forget to eat during our meal times, we are ending up putting on more weight in the long run. So, eating regularly and the right food is equally and as important as your diet,” she added. (IANS)

While a high fitness level is already known to have a positive impact on conditions like heart disease, a new study suggests that adults who are more fit have the lowest risk of developing lung and colorectal cancer compared with those who have low fitness levels.

For the study, the research team examined 49,143 adults who underwent exercise stress testing from 1991-2009 and followed them for a median of 7.7 years.

Those in the highest fitness category had a 77 per cent decreased risk of developing lung cancer and 61 per cent decreased risk of developing colorectal cancer, the results showed.

The study, published in the journal Cancer, showed that among individuals who developed lung cancer, those with the highest fitness had a 44 per cent decreased risk of dying during follow-up, and among adults who developed colorectal cancer, those with the highest fitness had an 89 per cent decreased risk.

“Our findings are one of the first, largest, and most diverse cohorts to look at the impact of fitness on cancer outcomes,” said Catherine Handy Marshall, Assistant Professor at Johns Hopkins University in the US.
