Mindy Kaling’s weight loss was a major concern for fans, saying she may be having food issues to keep herself slim. The actress who lost 40 pounds recently shared an Instagram photograph of herself in front of a table full of food at the Los Angeles restaurant Pijja Palace.
She had pizza, chicken drumsticks, onion rings and other delicious high-calorie food around her. But no picture showed her actually eating any of it.
Mindy Kaling “Oh babe I ATE”
Fans immediately began commenting that they were not sure she actually ate anything from the table. “I don’t see any actual eating here but ok…” and Kaling’s response was “Oh babe I ATE”
Another person commented, “There is no eating in these pictures.” And Kaling responded with “I actually think this concern is sweet. But I swear this is not my issue. But thank you being kind! [sic] she wrote.
Mindy Kaling weight loss journey throughout the year sharing pictures of her svelte figure on Instagram. On December 18 she posted photos wearing a form-fitting strapless white dress.
“I never wear winter white! I was always so worried about it not being flattering and also about dropping food on it. Last night @mollyddickson took me out of my comfort zone with this amazing satin blazer and strapless mini (also not my comfort zone! Who am I, Ariana Grande?) by @magdabutrym I loved it! … Here’s to trying more new fashion risks this year!”
The actress revealed her workout routine and also spoke about her workout phobias when she was younger.

“When I was younger, I had a very specific idea of how working out needed to be. It was like 45 minutes on the treadmill, seven-minute mile, it needed to be punishing, I needed to hate it,” Mindy Kaling said in an interview with People magazine earlier this year.
She loves her new fitness plan though which includes yoga, Pilates, walking and strength training.
“I don’t have to be like the expert at the thing to really enjoy it and to get a great workout. Surprising the body with lots of different things I think is really good, particularly for my body… I’ve been mixing it up and knowing that if a workout doesn’t necessarily make me soak my clothes with sweat, that it still was a good workout… It does not have to be punishing.”
