It will help you stay fit and healthy, lose the excess fat, and lead a happier life. Endure the pain today, to see the gain tomorrow. Make this a mantra for life,” wrote the actress.

On Monday, Shilpa took to social media to announce that she has turned completely vegetarian.

“Ahh! My ultimate dream, to grow my own, but for now… I have something to share. Since I’ve shared many milestones here, this is something… that’s a very personal choice, a hard decision for me; seemed impossible at one time, but it felt like a �calling’ of sorts. The shift happened gradually and NOW, I have accepted vegetarianism completely,” Shilpa announced on Instagram.
