“I eat six times a day and all my meals have carbs! And this is strictly as per my diet plan by the one and only Munmun,” she mentioned in an Instagram post.

Notably, Taapsee was on a shredding diet for the film. In an interview with, Ganeriwal said, “She (Taapsee) has to look lean, athletic and muscular for the role. Therefore, I have planned her meals accordingly and I am paying close attention to her diet.”

As per the diet plan, the Thappad actor began her day with sweet potatoes, eggs and jowar roti to meet her protein requirement, and healthy carb intake.

Her vegetarian lunch comprised rice, a bowl of curd and some vegetables. For dinner, she ate organic meat and fish, along with jowar or barley. “All her food was being freshly made. Oil is limited to cold-pressed sesame oil. She loves the traditional, cultured ghee, so that’s something I always give her in her meal plan,” Ganeriwal was quoted as saying.

Besides, her metabolism was kept intact with water intake throughout the day. And the one fruit she relied on post-workout was banana.

Taapsee is a fan of coffee so the nutritionist included two cups of green coffee in her diet. “She isn’t a tea person at all. Instead of anything packaged and junk, she has roasted peanuts along with her coffee,” she said.
