In a candid interview about his diet and fitness, Uday talks in detail about how, for the past 45 days, he has been only on a liquid diet- not for physical reasons especially but in a spiritual pursuit. ‘My diet, is very controversial. Currently, I am on a liquid diet wherein I have fresh fruit and vegetable juices.’
He refers to his diet as a’juice feast’. ‘That’s because I don’t stop myself from having any number of juices per day.’ However, since he has been fasting for long now, his current cheat meal would be- Dal, chawal and paneer.
He absolutely loves Indian mithais, the actor claims. ‘Oh, I can’t resist rabdi, gulab jamuns! I find Indian sweets very difficult to abstain! Ask him what is his favourite meal of the day and what he calls as a perfect breakfast, he says, “Waffles, pancakes and french toast are the perfect combination for a breakfast.’
