Madhuri Dixit’s Diet Plan
Madhuri makes it a point to follow a balanced diet. She reveals that she takes five small meals throughout the day.
“My morning starts with a small breakfast that consists of oatmeal or three egg whites and toast, followed by tea. I’m a tea drinker and I need minimum two cups a day. Then I have a mid-meal comprising nuts or curd with half a fruit,” she shares on her website.
“Lunch is usually a piece of chicken, some vegetables and carbs (I prefer roti to rice and bajre ki roti is my choice). A little amount of carb is necessary during the day as we’re involved in physical activity.”
“In the evening, I have an egg-white and a cup of tea or some form of protein. I have an early dinner which is by 7.30 pm and it includes a bowl of salad, grilled fish or chicken and vegetables,” she adds.
