Kareena Kapoor Khan is one of the fittest celebrities in Bollywood. She gained a lot of attention for her body transformation after having her first child, Taimur. Surprisingly, she credits home-cooked nutritious food for her weight loss.
In a Facebook Live video with her nutritionist Rujuta Diwekar, Kareena and Saif discuss everything they do to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Rujuta has been a consultant for many Bollywood celebs like Kangana Ranaut, Alia Bhatt, Karisma Kapoor and even Varun Dhawan.
On her Facebook page, Rujuta listed down key points from her talk with Kareena and Saif:
“The ABCD of the talk with Kareena and Saif:
In the summer season, this is what Kareena is having - Mango, jamun, karvand, Kokum sherbet, Limbu sherbet, lemon grass chai, gulkand milkshake, Dahi rice with papad, Jowar or Nachni bhakri with fresh, seasonal sabzis cooked in traditional style.
Balance - Don’t be a bore by being rigid with your diet but don’t let yourself go either. A good diet is a timeless concept, it isn’t something that starves you and then lets you feast as a reward for showing the will power to deprive yourself of food. Instead, it teaches you to eat the traditional delicacies, encourages you to chew slowly and makes you feel content just before you feel full.
Consistency - Aim for that with your exercise program more than intensity. A good diet helps you back yourself mentally. On a day that you are not upto exercise, don’t bunk the gym, show up and train at 50% of your intensity. That way you will feel good about yourself for the rest of the day, instead of feeling guilty about skipping your workout.
Discipline - at the end of the day that is what it all boils down to. Food, exercise, sleep, every cog in the wheel of life matters and there are no quick fixes. As Saif said, there is nothing boring about being healthy and nothing sexy about having an heart attack. Broccoli is not going to magically save you from the excesses of last night, nor are green smoothies or soups in the name of detox going to undo the gluttony committed during a holiday, party, etc.
Essentially, a good diet paves way for a journey of self-discovery, allows you to feel light and happy through the day and ensures restful sleep in the night.”
