Being in your best shape is a lifestyle choice, and actor Navin Waqar seems to have aced at doing it right.

In a recent Instagram post, Waqar revealed her workout routine and diet plan — and how the combination of the two has helped her achieve her body goals.

For starters, Waqar makes it clear that every person has different needs and should pursue a regimen customised to them.

"Everyone has different needs when it comes to working out. My aim is to lower my fat levels. For that I people lift heavy but I'm doing a mix of HITT/Tabata/Circuit training for now. It's hard but it works."

By focusing on fat-loss rather than targetting weight-loss, Waqar says it has built her stamina and endurance big time.

If one cuts down on food intake, the weight you lose will be both muscle and fat. The goal to successful weight loss is to preserve as much muscle as possible, and maybe even gain some, while at the same time lose as much bodyweight as possible. In the long-run, this helps in maintaining your weight.

When it comes to her diet, Waqar believes in balance. But more importantly, it's what you eat that seems to make all the difference.

She starts the day with overnight soaked oats for energy and proceeds to snack on blueberries, sugar-free/whole wheat cookies, almonds and dark chocolate.

And if that wasn't enough, her carbs include, "brown rice and roasted/steamed veggies. Chicken, fish, eggs and lean meat, in addition to seafood, is a must protein."

Waqar says what seems to work best for her is that she "counts her calories."

With a diet plan that has us salivating at the mouth, who needs to count calories? But one thing's for sure, Waqar's focus and consistency, guided by her trainer Ammar Qadir, has not only yielded desired results but has inspired those of us looking to get moving.

Every body demands its own regime of exercise to be developed by trials and observations. It is not one medicine for all solution.

Well after the average citizen has finished worrying about putting food on the table and a roof over their head, this article is certainly worth a read.

Eating a Whole Foods Plant Based diet with low oil will not only reduce fat, but also weight in a very healthy manner. The best part is no calorie counting and no watching carbs or anything. As long as you get your nutrients from plants, nuts, seeds and legumes, your body transformation will be magical.

It is encouraging to see young women taking such interest in fitness and in health. The importance of physical exercise for both mind and body is impossible to over-emphasize. Unprocessed or minimally processed foods are a good choice.

Ok. All weight loss is first fat. Calling it targeted fat loss is wrong. Your body only loses fat first.

This regime on low glycemic index diet should be universal ! Unfortunately it’s expensive for the common man ! Still I believe within given resources it’s achievable and all of us can feel healthy and in good shape Very important to emphasize the importance of adequate sleep and avoidance of late night snacking !!
