 Post Pregnancy Weight Loss Tips from Kareena Kapoor

Kareena Kapoor Khan is already looking a few kilos lighter and slimmer and she's glowing all the more just two months after the birth of her son Taimur Ali Khan.

After powering through her pregnancy without a maternity break, actor Kareena Kapoor is back about town looking as radiant as ever. The 36-year-old-actress who turned first-time-mum on December 20 is already back in her yoga and pilates class and, she's even confident that she'll be back in picture-perfect shape in seven months. Kareena aims to drop the 18 kilos she gained during her pregnancy in this time.

But, she does admit, this has been the most challenging journey of her life. "After you've delivered a baby, even getting onto a treadmill takes a lot of strength. It's impossible at first," she points out between sips of her large cup of coffee. "Rujuta has allowed me two cups a day. But, she'll lose her cool if I have a third. And, the rule is that coffee can never be the first thing I have in the morning. I have to begin the day with a fruit," she says.

According to her dietician Rujuta Diwekar, the target for Kapoor Khan has always been to take it a step at a time and not rush the process. "Because we don't want to go one step forward and two steps back, which is what happens when you do a crash or extreme diet," Diwekar said.

Both Kareena and Rujuta agree that walking is most effective. "Post-pregnancy diets can lead to thyroid and other complications. I needed to rebuild bone and muscle density. After delivery, stomach muscles tend to loosen up. Weight loss by walking is most sustainable. Lolo put on 26 kilos [during pregnancy] and lost it in a year. Now, she is at her fittest. My son, anyway, wants me to hold him and walk all the time. He cries if I sit down with him," the actress says.
