Diandra Soares On Travel
There is no such thing as a typical weekend in my job. Sometimes I am working; and on some weekends, I am absolutely free. If I am free, I tend to get out of the city and I usually go to Lonavala or Pune with friends. Otherwise I catch up on my sleep. I am not so much of a party person and I feel it is far more important to catch up on my sleep, especially during peak season ? September to January ? when you are working flat out through the week and you just get that one day off. Otherwise, I make plans with my friends, either go to a party or meet up at someone?s house for dinner. So it really depends, there is no fixed plan as such for the weekend.
Yes, food is on the agenda ? it is always on the agenda. And being Catholics, special food is made on Sundays. I used to cook when I lived on my own but now I get pampered by my mum who is a great cook. We usually have biryani or barbecued chicken though sometimes it is something even more fancy.
I avoid going for movies on a weekend as that?s when the theatres are most crowded. I don?t go to the parlour either on Saturdays and Sundays for the very same reason. I prefer hiding out at home or even driving out of town. As for reading and listening to music, that happens quite a bit during the week anyway.
I do hate working on Sundays though but when you?re working on the weekend, you?re working on the weekend ? you don?t get a free day.

Celeb diet with Candice Pinto
When I travel, I eat as and when; there is no proper fixed time. I mostly gorge on desserts, says model Candice Pinto.
Model: Candice Pinto
Height: 5 feet 9 inches
Weight: 54 kgs
Breakfast: In the morning, I have two eggs and digestive biscuits which is a must! After I come back from the gym, I have a protein shake accompanied by a sandwich.
Lunch: I have either an egg roll or maybe a paneer or veg. roll. Plus, another protein shake.
Mid meals: When I travel, I eat as and when; there is no proper fixed time. I mostly gorge on desserts.
Allergic to: I love sea food but regrettably I can’t have it.
Dinner: I have a complete meal with rice, vegetables and fish. I avoid red meat and have recently put a stop to chicken.
Work out: I feel exercise is very important. I work out at least for an hour which is generally with cardio and weights.
Nutritionist Naini Setalvad recommends...
She really needs to improve her diet as QUICK as possible. Her diet is too high in protein. Excess protein can damage the kidney by increasing blood pressure and leaching calcium from the body. There are absolutely no fruits in her diet which are a main source of anti-oxidants which protects our body against diseases. Her gorging on chocolates indicates there is probably a deficiency of vitamins and minerals.
BREAKFAST: Her breakfast before she goes to the gym could be two bananas. After working out, she could have two whole wheat bread sandwich (filled with veggies) and two egg whites which will be a balance of protein and carbohydrates. It is best to get protein from natural sources. Protein shakes are not advisable, as they are not natural.
LUNCH: Her lunch could be accompanied with salads and vegetables which are rich in fibre, minerals, vitamin and anti-oxidants. Either paneer or dal is advisable as one source of protein is more than enough.
MID EVENINGS: It would be great to have dry fruits, nuts and fruits. They are a good source of vitamins, minerals and proteins.
DINNER: Her dinner is fine. If she is eating white rice, she can also switch to brown rice.

Aanchal Kumar - Indian Supermodel
Aanchal Kumar on dance "To be honest, I’m not a fabulous dancer but enjoy doing my thing when the DJ plays my favourite tracks, like the recent Candy shop and Don’t Phunk with My Heart. I guess the word that best describes my dance moves is cute. I’m shy and inhibited on the floor, but incorporate a lot of hand and waist movement."
The cool showers notwithstanding, temperatures are on the rise in Lokhandwala. That’s because the locality houses Parmita Katkar, one of the four finalists in AXN’s Hot ‘N’ Wild contest.
After an elimination round held on Aug 2 at Velocity, this 23-year-old resident of Fourth Cross Lane was chosen from among 1,800 contestants for the finals, which will be held in Mumbai.
Winners of the contest will be cast as show hosts on AXN. Says a thrilled Parmita, “The contest is not just about having a great body — and it’s certainly not brainless. It was an out-and-out speech contest. The channel wants to find hot-looking hosts who can speak well.”
She claims that her “easy demeanour and witty answers” worked in her favour during the two-round elimination process. “There were so many questions, and though they seemed quite easy they were actually quite difficult.
Like judge Achla Sachdev asked me that if I had to go to a bar and find an exciting guy, what would my pick-up line be? It had to be intelligent, witty and hot. I looked at Milind Soman, who was also a judge, and said, 'That’s a nice shirt you are wearing. But it would look nice on the carpet next to my bed.’ Achla wasn’t satisfied with that, she asked me for another line. So I said, ‘Nice pants; can I talk you out of them?’”
That’s quite a mouthful. Weren’t her parents worried about the connotations of participating in such a hot show?
“My mother was skeptical after she saw Are You Hot, the American reality show that this series is based on. But I reassured her that the Indian competition was not going to be like the American one and that I will not have to wear a bikini on stage.”
Personally, she isn’t too worried about being labelled hot and wild. “That’s just the name of the show; the contest is more about being yourself, and being a sexy compere. There is a very thin line between being sexy and vulgar and the organisers have maintained it very well.”
Right now, Parmita’s preparing for the finals, to be held on September 5, by mugging Oscar Wilde quotations and Cyrus Broacha’s one-liners.
“I am also preparing my expressions by checking them on my handycam,” she says. She’s planning to invest in some nice, hot designerwear “which is not revealing,” she adds.
AXN’s Hot and Wild contest is based on the controversial ABC television show Are You Hot, directed by reality TV expert Mike Fleiss (he created The Bachelor, where “one lucky man and 25 lucky women were given the unique opportunity to find true love”).
Are You Hot, a six-episode series, gave Americans who tuned in a chance to choose who will be the hottest man and woman in the nation.
A panel of celebrity judges — supermodel Rachel Hunter, fashion designer Randolph Duke and actor Lorenzo Lamas — offer their opinions, but don’t get to choose the winners. It’s the viewers who, after each episode, vote for their favourite male and female hotties by making toll-free phone calls.
Contestants are eliminated one by one until one man and one woman remain, to be crowned the “The Sexiest People in America.”
The show ran into some rough weather, with American radio producer Howard Stern suing ABC and Are You Hot producers claiming they stole the idea from his radio programme, which ruined his own TV deal. He is seeking US$100 million in damages.
If that’s not bad enough, the show’s TRPs didn’t exactly set the channel on fire. Which is probably why it’s been cancelled after its first season.
According to a Reuters report, the chairman of ABC’s entertainment division said the show was dropped from the summer schedule because “ultimately — it was in bad taste”.

Candice Pinto On Toilets - "I am very particular about clean toilets. I would equate a toilet to a bedroom. Whenever I go to a hotel, I check out the toilet first. The tissue paper and water should be in order. I stay away from dirty restrooms."
