I started eating right and healthy coupled with correct workouts. I have lost 18 kg in the last six months, but 35 percent journey is yet to go in this aspect. In the work that we do in our industry, you are expected to look your best and you indeed want to look your best.” Also Read - Avoid These 5 Common Foods That Can Hamper Your Immunity
