From a chubby girl to a hot diva!
Now she has become an icon and inspiration for most people aspiring to lose the adamant fat.
The main reason for her weight gain was her love for junk foods, sedentary lifestyle and hatred for exercise.
Weight loss journey was not such an easy job for her, but she did it and lost around 90 kgs till now.
Inspired by Salman Khan:
Sonakshi Sinha says that all the credit of her weight loss goes to Salman as he was the person who saw potential in her and motivated for weight loss. She lost almost 30 kgs for her first movie with Salman Khan.
Journey to the Svelte body:
Before her launch opposite Salman Khan in Dabangg, Sonakshi transformed herself from a plump teenager to svelte sleekness, but she was still counted among the bulky actresses.
Sonakshi accepted the fact that she was overweight and was never to shy away from the critics who made fun of her figure.
Sharing a picture of a skeleton, she wrote “To all those who keep commenting on my weight, have a look at the picture. Don’t think that I am gonna be like that and get over it”.
She boosted her willpower and confidence and was regular with her workouts to lose more weight. When size zero was the new fad in the film industry, Sonakshi took a strong stand against it.
Sonakshi was in no hurry, instead worked steady and hard, and her efforts were paid off.
A Well-Toned and Fit Sonakshi

Water and green tea became her drinks of choice. Not just that, she ate small meals every two hours in order to keep her metabolism ticking.
Her diet includes milk, oats, whole wheat bread, mixed dry fruits, fresh veggies, homemade roti, sabzi, fish, dal, chicken and a cup of green tea.
