Celebrity trainer and Pilates guru Yasmin Karachiwala is easily the toast of the fitness circuit. She has an enviably fit figure, a bevy of star clients at her gymnasium, Body Image, and is busier than the proverbial bee as she sculpts people into shapely beings. We hear that she’s the secret behind Katrina Kaif’s taut midriff, Deepika Padukone’s lean limbs, and Bipasha Basu’s sporty body, apart from the fit and fabulously toned curves of the new-gen like Sarah Ali Khan, Ananya Pandey and Jahnvi Kapoor.

“I weigh 59 kgs. As long as my weight stays in the 50s, I am happy,” confesses Yasmin. Of course, to stay there, apart from physical activity, she watches her diet but also has her own sneak cheat sheet. Tough to believe? We prodded her into relinquishing her tight lip and reveal a few heavily-guarded secrets about her own eating routine. So, is it a weekly cheat meal or a cheat day for Yasmin?

“It is a cheat night!” she quips instantly. “My friends and I go out partying once a week, mostly on Saturdays (these days though, Katrina is making me work out even on Sundays!) and we come back late, around 4:00 am. That is when I let my hair down and enjoy myself.”

Healthy morning shot

She can afford the cheat day because she backs up on health for the rest of the week. It begins with the first shot every morning. “Do you really want to know?” she teases. “It is a bitter detox shot. A mix of the juices of bela patra leaves, basil, karela, and kari patta; an instant blood purifier.” She has another interesting morning ritual. “Black coffee with a shot of unsalted butter. The perfect energiser. It gets me going and charges me completely,” she says.
