Lisa Ray remains loyal to her dietary regimen which doesn’t involve low-calorie food

There she was…exuding grace and charm with not a hint of the difficult times that have gone by. Dressed in a beautiful orange coloured sequinned Satya Paul sari, Lisa Ray confirmed that she “never felt better.” The actor was here for the launch of a new facility of LifeCell, a stem cell bank, an issue dear to her heart.

The actor said that even after she was diagnosed with multiple myeloma, a cancer of the plasma cells, her dietary regimen more or less remained the same. “I do not believe in low-calorie food, what I eat is healthy and I have always advocated the same. I have always led a very healthy lifestyle and believe in healthy eating rather than following a strict diet regimen,” she says.

Apart from having worked in films like Water, Kasoor, Bollywood/Hollywood, Lisa also did a five-part series on TLC for a show titled Oh My Gold. She was subsequently signed to host the second season of Top Chef Canada, which premieres next year. Finally, when asked about the reason behind her glowing skin, she laughed it off and said that stem cells are the secret. “Stem cells have a rejuvenating effect on your skin. Not that I wish that for anyone, but yes, it’s a regenerative medicine.”

At present, she is busy launching her exclusive line of saris designed by Satya Paul. Besides, she is also working on a book that traces her journey from her foray into films to being a cancer graduate.
