After mesmering people with her size zero figure, Kareena Kapoor is now all set to share her fitness mantra by writing a foreword for Rujuta Diwekar’s Don't Lose Your Mind, Lose Your Weight.

Kareena writes about being taught “to eat well, eat right and eat regularly. She also mentions that her fitness is the result of “70% diet and 30% exercise-training and yoga."

Kareena also mentions how her diet is customised to her requirements and how every meal is planned in accordance to the level of activity of any given day.

“In Mumbai, my breakfast is muesli and milk or a chillah or parathas; no chai or coffee. While shooting for Tashan in Ladakh, I ate fresh fruit for breakfast and thukpas and momos for my other meals. I had pudina tea without milk."

Kareena also emphasises how Rujuta focuses on nutrition and not calories.

"I make sure I eat every two hours. My evening snack or meal is soy milk or a sandwich. Rujuta focuses on nutrition, not calories. Amazingly, she likes to keep the nutritional value of what you eat, as compared to the calories consumed, high."

Kareena also mentions how she learnt about being smart about food and yet enjoyed it.

"I have learnt what she means when she says, 'be smart about food' and still enjoy what you eat. Now thanks to this book, you can (learn) too and I am sure you will find it good enough to eat."
