Kapoor opened up about her wellness on Instagram. She says that she combines cardio and strength training to stay in shape. “The trainers keep changing my program but it’s basically a strength workout with some functional training thrown in to the mix towards the end of each session. In a week, we do strength training four times and 1-2 days, I end up doing cardio.”

Kapoor’s trainer, Priyanka Metha, opened up about her approach to working with the actress. She says on her Instagram story that their goal is building muscle. “Our focus is to achieve that tone in muscle mass,” she says. “Fat loss being only a by-product.”

On her Instagram story, Kapoor talked about her daily diet. She says that she eats a lot of veggies each day. “I am not picky about vegetables. Cook it Indian style and I will have just about anything.”

Kapoor opened up about her mental state on Instagram. She says that she took steps to improve her mental health. “For me today, being ‘healthy’ means so much more than what I look like in the mirror. One of my first steps to becoming a healthier me was to acknowledge that mentally I wasn’t in the best place, and that I had to address what was eating me from the inside before I could even begin working on anything else. This was the most uncomfortable part. And the most difficult part too. It took so much therapy. So many tears. So much uncertainty. Fear. Setbacks. Discomfort. Self doubt. Then came the self realisations. Thus began the healing.”

In her recent Instagram post, Kapoor opened up about finding confidence in herself. She says that she bought a bikini to help her feel better. “I’m glad I took a chance and bought the bikini. This was one of my favorite days on our holiday.. I felt confident, I felt comfortable in my own skin. This is me chasing joy instead of perfection. And I actually can’t wait to wear this bikini again.”
