In conversation with: Kareena Kapoor Khan & Rujuta Diwekar on Yoga,Binge Eating and life post pregnancy
New mommy Kareena Kapoor Khan has been setting maternity style goals all through her pregnancy. And now, after looking resplendent as the showstopper for renowned designer Anita Dongre at the recently concluded Lakme Fashion Week, the proud mother of Taimur Ali Khan Pataudi is on a mission to lose all that weight, but without compromising on health.
In a casual Facebook Live chat with her dietition and nutritionist Rujuta Diwekar, Kareena talked about not only what she did while she was pregnant, but also spoke at length about how she intends to shed the weight, which Diwekar says should take around seven months. “I put on 18kg, but I flaunted it till I walked into the hopsital, but it’s coming off with lots of love. I enjoyed my pregnancy. I ate well. I ate a lot of ghee, all the paranthas, all the pizzas… I’ve eaten it all. Rujuta told me not to compromise. Eat light, every 2-3 hours, which was happening quite naturally. But, of course, things have changed now,” says a glowing Kareena, with a smile.
“I say it with a lot of pride that he (Taimur) is the most gorgeous child, not because he is mine, but because he is very good looking. Yes, he has the Pathan genes, but it’s also because I ate a lot of ghee.”
Diwekar started off talking about the importance of restoring calcium balance in the body, because apparently you lose about five years of calcium during pregnancy. So along with the yoga, Kareena was advised to have a glass of milk at night if she’s hungry.
Both Kareena and Diwekar stress on the importance of eating in moderation. It’s not that you have to leave what you like, but to “pay attention to what you’re eating” and the proportion – an important part of that is to not watch TV while eating. Watch your food instead. The duo further engage in an hour-long chat over things to keep in mind while maintaining your fitness levels.
Kareena has resumed her normal life after pregnancy and apparently that has raised many eyebrows. On going all out after pregnancy, Kareena made an absolutely valid point where she went on to say, “Love is not showing that you’re staying at home..no one can question a parent’s love for their child. For example, if a girl gets married and lives with her husband after marriage, that doesn’t mean she doesn’t love her parents enough, you know what I mean..?”
