Actress-entrepreneur Shilpa Shetty says she is very excited about her digital foray as part of which she is promoting health and imparting cooking lessons. She says she wants to take the project forward worldwide.

"I have just started this whole foray into digital with a YouTube channel and my website on health. This is something that I want to take forward worldwide," Shilpa told IANS in a telephonic interaction.

"Health is extremely important for all of us. I am doing it very passionately. I am very happy that we have got three verticals that focus on health -- nutrition, yoga and functional training, and it's all-encompassing. I am teaching people how to cook healthy, so that's a new avatar and people have not seen it before," she added.

The actress spoke on the sidelines of the launch of a healthier morning cereal Saffola Multigrain Flakes. She was at the event along with dietician and health expert Pooja Makhija.

Talking about her morning food rituals, Shilpa, a mother of one, said: "I am a breakfast girl. I eat at 7:30 p.m. and then till 7:30 a.m., I have not eaten anything, so I make sure that I eat muesli either in a smoothie form with yoghurt, almond milk, cocunut milk and some fruit."

"I eat that as a pre-starter and then I have two eggs little later. It's very important to have fibre-rich breakfast," she said.

Shilpa also emphasised on eating on time.

"I think that's the most important thing for any working person to eat on time. Normally I like to take lunch at 12:30 p.m. and if I am not taking it, my body starts craving for it," said Shilpa, who has launched fitness DVDS and books which give out lessons to fitness freaks.

How important is it for actresses to remain fit to get the best roles in Bollywood?

"I don't think you should maintain a diet or have modification in your life to get a role. I think you need to do it because you want to be fit and healthy. Having a lifestyle modification for the rest of the life is the way to be. Any person who is fit, who looks good, will have discipline and nobody gets it free," said the 41-year-old, who finds Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone very fit.
