Deepika’s diet, devised by Puja Makhija, involves small meals every two hours and is based on quinoa. "It does not bloat like Rice"says Deepika Padukone.
"We recently discovered Quinoa, a carbohydrate substitute high in fiber, which has worked wonders for Deepika," Yasmin Karachiwala, Deepika Padukone's Trainer.
I think diet is a trial and error process. I live on rice, but it bloats me up immediately, so I’ve replaced it with quinoa. It’s actually pure protein. - Arjun Kapoor, actor who lost 50 kgs.
I also like quinoa, which is good for health. I enjoy healthy food - Adi Godrej, Industrialist.
Sonam Kapoor swears by it. As does Jennifer Aniston. The quinoa seed is high in fibre and contains magnesium, which makes it good for cardiovascular health and migraines. Nutritionist Naini Setalvad suggests you use it instead of rice: “Make upma or cook it with vegetables like a pulao. Try it porridge-style for breakfast, with prunes, berries and nuts.”- My Envy Blog.
