STAR TRACK Tele-actor Rupal Tyagi balances between indulgence and a strict diet

This effervescent Bangalorean calls herself a big-time foodie. Being in the television industry, she needs to draw a line somewhere.

Rupal Tyagi, popularly known as Gunjan, the name of her character in the Zee TV tele-serial Sapne Suhane Ladakpan Ke , says it becomes a bit difficult at times to stick to her fitness regime because of back to back shooting schedule as the soap is a daily. Clad in a printed black jumpsuit paired with a vintage owl pendant, Rupal — in New Delhi to promote the soap — says she opts for a balanced diet as she has “no time to sweat it out in a gym”.

So what comprises her diet? Her current diet includes “Raw vegetables, soup, oats and plenty of water”, which helps her shed a few kilos a week.

Rupal says she would have loved to own a size zero body but adds, “It doesn’t suit me and leads to weakness and sickness in the mornings.” The talented actor admits, “I am a big time foodie. I love cooking, experimenting with food and discovering new dishes. But these indulgences give me some extra pounds. So I often get back to a strict diet but in a healthy way.” Rupal says her life has changed after playing Gunjan. In jest, she signs off, adding, “For the past one year, I am so much into the character that I now am quite aloof from any fashion trend other than hers.”
