How Did Zarine Khan Lost So Much Weight?

There is no denying to the fact that media has targeted our lives in all possible ways. Ranging from point of views to our dressing sense, manners, what we eat or any possible thing, media has played an important role. How we see ourselves, how we see others and what improvements we want in our lives, is all dependent on media nowadays whether it is electronic media, print media or social media. And we are already here getting inspiration from different media figures. Am I wrong? If yes, it’s tricky because you’ve already joined me in the talk. Let’s take it by our mutual cooperation.

Dreaming about slim waistline and thin being, a large number of women and even men follow their favorite celebrities to look beautiful, hot, and slim and to lose their weight. Yes, it is true because a huge research has already set this topic of body image or media effects on fire to support the previous idea. A research published in Semantic Scholars has put forward the evidence of the level to which media is influencing our body image and our perception.

Wait; there is nothing to be worried about. Let’s look at the real, humane, touchable and sensual instance that can lead you to a waking world of fitness.

Ladies, grab some paper and pencil or switch the saving option of your gadget on to keep the right tactics of weight loss that all time favorite Zarine Khan has set for you.

Zarine Khan, the exquisite beauty and representation of Asian gorgeousness is all set to inspire the world with her shocking body transformation. Yes, the princess Yashodhara of Veer-The Film 2010 and the Khushi of Ready-The film 2010 has stolen the show with her mind-blowing performance. But not to forget what she had to do to get in the focus of Bollywood devotion.

Miss Khan, is an Indian Actress and Model working particularly for Bollywood but also stealing the show by her appearance in Punjabi and Tamil films. She is a late 80’s girl born to a Muslim Indian family in Mumbai, Maharashtra, India. Always being pretty and chubby with cutest smile ever she wanted to pursue the profession of medicine having to model as the second option. Unluckily yet luckily, she couldn’t follow her dream of wearing the white coat and curing the patients with her cutest smile and she had to think about her second option to hit the public for the same goal. Just the pain of injections was replaced with the pleasure of her big screen performance.

But what?

To come forward to that heavenly camera, you need to be slim enough to fit into the lens, at least. And if you’re not, you have to take a lot of criticism and bad words for your appearance irrespective of your mighty talent that you’re carrying behind your fats. But NO, they are first concerned with how you look.

That’s how media works.

Well, for Miss Khan, she was more than 100 kg back then in school and college days, as she told in one of her talks, but 100 kgs in Bollywood blockbuster? WHAT?

That was a big NO. But Zarine Khan was all ambitious and dedicated to hitting the dance floor of Character Dheela in the future and she couldn’t hold herself back to just sit in the house and to cry over her unseen dream. (The best thing about her, NEVER GIVE UP)

The beginning

As she told in her saying, that experience of being mocked for her weight was not unexpected because she has always been listening to these kinds of verbalizations that we make for fat people but she never bothered, and she was never going to bother in future too.

As she said, “I was so laid-back, I didn’t care about my weight althought people repeatedly asked me to watch it”

But she never gave it a thought until now.

She was all set to enter the glamorous yet demanding world of Bollywood where people change their perspectives every Friday, as Khan stated, she was determined to change everyone’s mind by her weight loss, body transformation and with her catching performance at the end.

How did she gain weight at the first place?

As per her talks, Miss Khan used to be really foodie in her school and college days and the most fun part is that she was never ashamed or worried about how she looked because according to her being a chubby doctor was okay. As she said in her Instagram post that she was happy back then when she was more than 100kg and she is happy now when she is even less than the half of it. She further added that happiness is a mind-set and it has nothing to do with your weight if you are comfortable with it.

This makes sense to me!

Therefore, Zarine Khan is not only an inspirational entity for your weight loss but also for how to love you at the first place and to never bother for what other people say because


Her film career

Salman Khan, needing no introduction, noticed the talented aura of Miss Khan at the Film School of Whistling Wood. He got impressed and gave no second thought to her casting in Anil Sharma’s Veer. So, after a great bunch of criticism that she bore sadly, just because of her weight, she made the impossible possible and blow the cinema screen with her debut, co-starring the one and only Salman Khan as Princess Yadhoshara in Veer-The Film. And important to mention, she had to gain 8 kg to fit into the character of that 80’s princess in the movie that was basically plotted around the 1825’s Pandhari Moment of Rajhistan back when India was ruled the by the Great Britain.

8 kg? Yes, think how much she might have lost to shut the mouths of all haters?

But, again, the world was not fair to her. She even received a huge bunch of criticism for her weight in Veer-The Film 2010 too. But her spirit didn’t drop and she rose like a queen on the dance floor of ‘Character Dheela’ for her movie Ready, and everybody was flabbergasted.

Give a look to her before and after appearances. Amazing!

And that’s how she gave a straight shut-up call to all of the bodyshammers saying:

“Came across these pics of mine from school and college days. (White one was in std 9th & pink one right after my std 12th exams). When I look at these pics I feel proud of myself today not tht I felt any lesser abt myself back then. Inspite of being so big I never let ppl’s comments or ideas abt me bother me. Bcoz it’s my like and my body and only I hav the right to decide wht I’m gonna do with it. Then one day I decided let me try how it feels to b a little lighter and hence started my weight loss journey. It wasn’t easy at all bt everytime I looked at the Progress in the mirror I got the push to do more. I had lots more energy than before and I was loving every bit of this new person I was transforming into.

When I became a part of this industry, I had lost all my weight … Infact I was asked to put on weight Fr my first film to look the character. Unfortunately I was criticized to no end Fr my weight bt again I never let tht get to me. How cud I? Those ppl had not seen me like the way I am in these pics here. And Fr me everything was jus an achievement to reach frm where I was to where I am.

I continued on my fitness journey irrespective Bcoz fitness Fr me is a way of life now. Along with the weight loss came a lot of stretch marks bt instead of feeling ashamed of it and trying to hide it , I believe in flaunting it . It makes me feel like a tigress with her stripes. I have come a long way in this journey f fitness and I still hav a long way to go… Bt it’s always been only Fr myself and not Bcoz of ppl shaming me..!

Nutrition plan of Zarine Khan to lose weight

Here we are to discuss the nutrition plan of Zarine Khan that she adopted to lose weight and to transform her chubby body into the body carrying the charisma of the Greek Goddesses. Again, Zarine Khan did well and worked hard in her workout but it is not that she left eating and survived only on the salads.

As per the fact, she has always been a foodie person raiding the restaurants anytime to satisfy the cravings and to enjoy her days. But as her that eating habit had drove her to 100 kg weight which was not normal for a college girl, she had to alter her habits. Important to note that she didn’t stop eating, she didn’t starve but just managed her diet by opting what to eat and when to eat.

Here is her quick nutrition plan that she simply follows for the love of her body and her life.


Zarine Khan believes in taking a whole breakfast and she recommends not missing your morning food ever if you want to lose weight. She usually used to take 2 boiled eggs ‘whites, a bowl of fruits or sprouts and brown bread toast. Oatmeal and cereals are also her favorite alternatives. Well,s he avoided and still avoids white bread because it is already notorious for its great positive effects on weight gain.


She boycotted fried stuff years ago and she believes in taking finely and healthily cooked or grilled food for the lunch. She usually took still-fried vegetables, brown rice or grilled chicken with suitable alterations for lunch to compensate the energy she spent upon her workout.


Dinner is always an important part of meals that we should never ignore or skip. But make it sure that you take your dinner before 9 p.m.

Zarine Khan is a night craver but in her tough fitness-concerned days she solely relied on salad, brown rice, grilled chicken and boiled vegetable for the sake of her fitness and weight loss.


As Zarine Khan told in one of her interviews, she takes a lot of snacks per day. In fact she used to eat properly every two hours in her school days. But if you want to lose weight, this frequent snacking can push you back to your previous BMI and Zarine Khan had to manage it.

What she did was the food management. She replaced her oily and fatty snacks with some vegetables, fruits and soups that helped her in her way to gain the perfect body she currently has.

REMINDER: Weight loss has no shortcut, you can’t just sit and eat something and lose weight. I wish it could be that easy but luckily it is not. Because what you get without struggle, you don’t value it and if you don’t value your journey and get careless on the hope of another trial, you’re never going to accomplish it at the first place. Do some exercise, manage your diet and join Zarine Khan to crush the body shaming below your feet.
