Celebrity nutritionist Rujuta Diwekar’s latest book, Pregnancy Notes, is inspired by her celebrity client and friend, Kareena Kapoor Khan and her equally famous son, Taimur Ali Khanbollywood Updated: Aug 16, 2017 16:11 IST
What do Kareena Kapoor Khan’s size zero and her pregnancy glow have in common? Well, both hit the headlines and during both the phases, she had celebrity nutritionist, Rujuta Diwekar by her side. If you have been wishing to take notes from her pregnancy diet, your wish has been granted. Rujuta’s latest book, Pregnancy Notes, not only has a foreword by the actor, but according to her, she and her son Taimur are the inspiration behind the comprehensive guide on everything “before, during and after pregnancy”.
“That I write this book was entirely her idea,” says Rujuta, adding, “Her weight loss, post pregnancy and the way she sizzled all through her pregnancy has created the same curiosity as the time she had size zero. And, Kareena is eager to share all that goes behind a healthy pregnancy with her fans.”
The book offers diet plan, recipes and information on pregnancy. Rujuta has also busted some myths in the book. For instance, during pregnancy, rice and ghee are good for health and so is weight training. “I hope that the book provides the right education both in terms of food and exercise,” she says.
The book states that if a woman is active during pregnancy, she would return to shape easily within weeks of delivery. “With tennis player Serena Williams winning grand slams during pregnancy, people are more receptive to the idea of exercise during pregnancy. It’s great for the baby; for an effortless delivery and to maintain good muscle tone and bone density. The problem is that most people, pregnant or not, confuse exercise with exertion but there is a huge difference between the two.” While the book is replete with such ‘backed with research and explained with logic’ information, we ask her what are two qualities that people can learn from Bebo. To which, she replies, “Kareena is easily the most fearless and courageous woman that I have worked with. Ours has been a very meaningful relationship and what I have seen over the past 10 years is one, she is ever ready to take on new challenges and two, she gives a damn about approval.”
