Mumbai: Actress Anushka Sharma, who is popular among the youth for her perfect figure, suggests to young girls not to follow any body-type blindly. She feels that they should try to be fit and follow their instructor.
"Fitness has become such large part of our lives. There are gyms at every nook and corner. There are such wonderful trainers. You need to get the right assistant and follow what is right for you. Don`t try to become like me or Deepika (Padukone) or Priyanka (Chopra)," she said.
"Eating less is stupid. If you are eating every two hours, you are increasing your metabolic rate so you will digest things faster. Eat healthy and eat every two hours," she added.
As a celebrity she feels she should set the right example.
"Not really my responsibility, but as much as I can, I will try to be responsible that whatever I do sets the right example in front of young girls," the 23-year-old told reporters Thursday while unveiling the Inaugural cover of India Today Women Health Magazine.
Anushka warns youngsters against blindly following someone else`s body type.
"You should be very comfortable the way you are. If you are comfortable with what you are, let the world go to hell. They are not going to feed you or cut down on your food intake. If you are happy with the way you look it`s completely okay.
"Yes, fitness is very important because when you grow older you will have problems, you will not be able to be that active. Blindly trying to become somebody`s body type is just stupidity," she said.
She also says that she is naturally lean.
"There are all kind of body types. Some are obsessed to lose weight, but some are naturally thin and it`s not easy for them to put on weight. I am naturally lean," she said adding that she eats constantly.
"I get hungry quite often. I have to eat constantly every two hours. In the night, I don`t have to go to the kitchen as food is always next to me. Though it`s not a healthy thing, but sometimes it is OK," Anushka said.
