If rumours are to be believed, Nargis went through a rough time in the past owing to her breakup. During this time, the actress and model also dealt with body shaming from fans. But she hasn’t let it dampen her spirit and has instead made conscious efforts to adopt a healthy lifestyle.

Nothing in life comes easy. We all have to work for it. The key is being consistent. Have discipline and the ability to stay focused and you can reach any goal. I was 179 lbs but today i am 152lbs. It’s taken about 6 months or more to lose that weight the right way! But I’m doing it. I’m on my way to a fitter me! #getstrong #metime #myhealthjourney #feelgood #exercise #workout @louisehazel @theslaygym getting me strong 🙏 💪🏼❤️ Wearing my @goodamerican work out pants and @Nike top and neon sneakers 👟

While it’s okay to lose weight and become the best version of yourself, we believe that it’s all about loving your body, no matter what. When Nargis was body-shamed by her fans, the actress made sure she told the world that she’s undertaking the journey to become fit and not skinny. She also understands the importance of having cheat days, but what’s more important is adopt a healthy lifestyle.

Sometimes we need a little comfort food. But its time to get back to healthy eating. Im not going to lie, i gain about 20 pounds while enjoying all the good food Los Angeles had to offer. But when you can’t fit your pants anymore that’s the time to put the brakes on the bad foods. No more burger, fries, cakes, cookies, ice creams, etc etc time for some fresh fruits and salads and lean meats. Better body here I come! 😂🤦🏻‍♀️🙈

On her Instagram, she has also shared how she starts her day with an organic detox drink made of fresh turmeric, lemon, lime, and honey tea.

In fact, last year she motivated her fans to hit the grind by sharing the following on her Instagram: “Nothing in life comes easy. We all have to work for it. The key is being consistent. Have discipline and the ability to stay focused and you can reach any goal. I was 179 lbs but today i am 152lbs. It’s taken about 6 months or more to lose that weight the right way! But I’m doing it. I’m on my way to a fitter me!”

Later, she deleted the post from her handle. But her words and journey have been immortalised on the Internet.

But the best part about her this journey that she shares with all of us? The very delicious and healthy meals that are mouth-watering. Case in point: This açai bowl.

We think it’s safe to say that she is doing what all of us set out to do each New Year–get fit. But if you’ve lost track of that goal, make Nargis your inspiration and get started. Because, it’s better late than never!
