If you're a fan of Bollywood movies, then you're probably familiar with the glamourous actress Sonakshi Sinha.

But, did you know that the actress actually weighed around 90kg before she made her mark in the industry.

The star lost about 30kg before she made her big debut opposite Salman Khan in the hit movie, Dabangg.

According to BollywoodShaadis, the star engaged in a strenuous workout and diet plan to get rid of those extra pounds.

Her workout included cardio exercises, cycling, functional and weight training, swimming, visiting the gym twice a day and much more.

The actress said: "It was not easy at all for somebody like me. I am the kind of person who hates the gym. I am allergic to the gym. I want to run away from it.

"But I think once I put my mind to something, I go out and achieve it, and I guess I did that.”

The site added that Sinha is a foodie at heart and that it was difficult for her to “curtail” herself from all those “goodies” that she really loves.

She said in one of her interviews: “Food is my first love. I never followed a diet that makes me cranky and unhappy. I believe I work too hard to deprive myself of the one thing I love the most- food! I eat regular food, but in lesser quantities than before.

"Eating small meals every 2 hours helps in keeping up the metabolism all day. I even binge sometimes. Who's gonna stop me when there's a brownie right in front of my eyes?

"But if I do, an extra 20 minutes on the treadmill is a must.”

Sinha's hard work paid off and the svelte actress also offered some advice for those looking to shed those extra pounds.

She said: "Don't expect results overnight. It took you months or years to pile on the kilos, what makes you think it will be gone in a few days?

"It is important to condition your mind and be patient during the process. "Rather than dwelling on how much more you have to achieve, think of how far you have already come.”
