Along with her dietician, the much celebrated Rujuta Diwekar, she revealed her post baby weight loss plans. Kareena gave tips to mums on how to have a glowing skin after delivery.

Kareena did not bother about her weight till her delivery. She was quite comfortable and was not bothered about people’s opinion even after she piled on 18 kilos. It was something she flaunted till she reached the hospital. Trying to shed all the post pregnancy weight with lots of love and patience, Kareena says that the most important thing is that she enjoyed her pregnancy and ate well all the while.

All she wants to do now is spend time with her bundle of joy! Both Saif and Kareena want to be with their son, Taimur.

Kareena reveals that she is a lot more happy, energetic and satisfied today. Also, what needs to be noted is that she was not obsessing over her body weight and she is confident that she will come back to her normal weight with time.

Weight loss always takes time and cannot be done overnight. According to Kareena, it may take six months. I need people to understand me and accept me during every phase. The idea is not just about losing weight but to feel happy and energetic. I am not rushing to it as in the past 9 months things have changed inside.

Currently Kareena is eating rice in the night as well as the day. She is preparing the body for weight loss and this is making her look better and feel great. She says that she wanted to back to her Tashan diet but Rujuta has asked her not to rush up. So, she is eating rice twice daily. Things that are a part of her everyday diet include khichdi and bajra rotigud (jaggery), a spoon of ghee and one glass of milk. She has been eating this after pregnancy.

Most people think that rice is fattening and so they run away from it. However, Rujuta explained that Kareena is on a rice and desi diet that will help her become stronger. Rice also helps in bringing back good bacteria. Something as strenuous as a delivery helps wash out the good bacteria and so you need to bring them back into the gut. This would help lose weight. People follow crash diets after pregnancy which can lead to lifestyle disorders and thyroid problems. It slows the body down and can make the body deprived of nutrition.

Kareena’s diet includes iron rich foods like jaggery (gud), coconut ladoo, til ki chikki (sesame chikki), khichdi and bajra roti along with a spoon of ghee and a glass of milk each night. These foods are giving her a glowing skin and helping her in getting back her strength.

Kareena also does a 30 to 40 min treadmill walking workout every day.

Rujuta says that pulses are also an integral part of Kareena’s post pregnancy diet. The chief reason to add pulses is not just for the amino acid but for the fibre and minerals. Many women feel bloated and the reason behind that is the deficiency of dals in the diet.

3 things to note from Kareena’s post pregnancy diet

  • Exercise – walking is the best exercise post pregnancy and clubbing it with simple Yoga asanas can be helpful.
  • Go desi – Instead of trying out western diets, Indian mums should turn to desi super foods in their diet. That is ghee, jaggery, dal, bajra, lentils and rice.
  • Give your body time – Let the body heal; don’t rush into shedding all the weight. If you rush, you will end up with more disorders

IWB Weight Loss Program Transformation Story –  Meet Meetu Singh

It really feels great to be back writing for my blog and it is always a super feeling when you are writing about someone’s weight loss success story.

As you all know in the month of September we launched a weight loss support group on Facebook Indian Weight Loss Coach.

IWLC, Weight Loss Program Transformation

This group was an effort to help all those people who wanted to lose weight but needed someone to be accountable to. Within no time there were some serious people joining in and some of them wanted to go for a professional weight loss program which we were already running. In the past three years we have helped so many clients in losing weight, some clients give up the effort in between while some are so consistent that the end result gives us satisfaction and joy.

Today I am introducing Ms Meetu Singh who achieved her target of losing 10 kg weight in two months. Please follow Meetu Singh’s weight loss program transformation story…

It was in September when we started IWLC group on Facebook that I received Meetu’s message that she wanted to lose weight but there were certain health issues due to which she wasn’t able to do so. I had always known Meetu to be someone who was very particular about her evening walks and was surprised to know that she was still struggling with her weight issues.

Here was this woman 42 years old, 74.5 Kg, 5’1.5” suffering from Hypothyroid and High Blood Pressure. She was on medication for both the health issues. Despite being a healthy eater she was not able to lose weight. In her own words,“Though I always kept a watch on my weight yet, somehow with hypothyroid, it sneaked in. 8 years ago, I had lost some weight, which came back and refused to budge.  Then I was introduced to this weight loss support group on Facebook, ‘IWLC’, and I started following diet plans as well as workout ideas suggested there by the admins. I started eating better and had fun cooking better. I lost a few kilos just by following the group. From 74.5kg I reached 71.8 kg when I decided to go for a customized weight loss program.”

Motivation And Weight Loss Factors

Motivation And Weight Loss Factors You Should Know About!

Hello All!!!

Maintaining a healthy weight or trying to lose weight is not a very difficult task if you are determined to do so. Your body can be trained to be healthy. All you need is to set up your mind. This post is about motivation and weight loss factors.

Seek motivation and set goals

The state of happiness quote moment

Motivation is the basic thing needed for weight loss or maintenance of a healthy body. Unless and until you are motivated you cannot achieve what you want to. To keep yourself motivated you need to read positive quotes, write them down and understand their true essence. You can even pin them to your board in your room so that you get to see them every now and then.

Once you are motivated and geared up, you need to set attainable goals. By the word ‘attainable goals’ I mean goals that are realistic. Losing a kilo in a week is an attainable goal whereas planning to lose 10 kilos in a week is not. The problem with unattainable goals is that you are unable to achieve them and this makes you get disappointed. The end result is that you give up your weight loss mission entirely!

Steer clear of fad diets

Baby food diet a fad diet

Now, let us talk about fad diets. You read testimonials of people who followed an easy fad diet to lose weight and get all carried away. However, the plain truth is that fad diets don’t work. The word ‘fad’ means a craze or a whim. You must be aware that a whim or a craze does not last long. Similarly, a fad diet is not long lived and is not helpful at all. These diets do not provide the body with the nourishment needed. They are extreme diets that make you eliminate a lot of foods from your diet and allow you to eat not even a handful of things. Fad diets are not long lasting or sustainable by any means. Even if you happen to lose weight, you are bound to regain it all.  You can read more about fad diets here- click!

Eating right and working out

Squat to Knee Lift Twist Some Simple Exercises To Lose Belly Fat

You need to develop a healthy relationship with food. Those who are into binge eating have to first get rid of the habit. You have to analyze your eating pattern and find out where you are going wrong. Once you know that you can go ahead and mend that habit. Find out if you are a foodie or a food addict. There is a difference between the two. You can choose to treat yourself accordingly.

Exercising is another essential factor for weight loss. You simply cannot expect a toned body without working out. You can choose to work out at home or join a gym. At the gym, your trainer will make you do a variety of exercises such as cardio, strength training and the like. Seeing people around you sweating it out hard will also motivate you. If the gym is not your thing, try a hand at Zumba, Pilates, Yoga or even Kalaripayattu (Martial art form Kerala).

Just remember that don’t let anything hinder your path to good health!

The Surprisingly Simple, Enjoyable Way to Make Weight Loss Stick

What if there was an easy way to lose weight that guaranteed you would show up to the gym multiple times a week; make small, permanent changes to your diet; and change the way you thought about health and fitness (from a temporary challenge to a lifetime of experimentation and enjoyment) without guilt, shame and ever really having to “try?”

Well there very well might be. And no, this is no silver bullet or magic pill. It’s just about how human beings learn things.

Humans are social animals. It’s baked in. From how to walk to how to share, we learn just about everything by watching the people around us. We even have special brain cells called mirror neurons packed into our prefrontal cortex for learning from creatures that look like us. Now that’s baked in!

One of the most enduring models for how we learn is called “Social Cognitive Theory,” which was developed over decades of experiments by Dr. Albert Bandura, a professor of social science at Stanford University. At the root of whether or not we do something and keep doing it depends on how confident we are that we can do it. Here’s how we assess whether or not we can do something (like diet and exercise):

  • Personal Experience: “Have I done this before?”
  • Vicarious Experience: “Well if that person like me can do it, I can do it.”
  • Social Persuasion: “These people cheering me on seem to think I can do it, so I bet I can.”
  • Physiological Factors: “Is my body up to this? Are those butterflies in my stomach good or bad?”

The power of self-efficacy as explained by Social Cognitive Theory is what health psychologists call the phenomenon of “a new normal.” That’s when you meet new people and start viewing your own capabilities differently. Or when you decide to do something with friends and learn confidence from each other’s struggles. In my opinion, this is the most powerful collection of forces someone new to health and fitness can exploit for themselves. The ultimate bio-hack is simply doing new things with others.

And I know this because it’s not only how I work as a coach, but also how things worked for me. In 2007, I lost 60 pounds in 292 days just like I described above. I met new friends at a gym in San Francisco’s Castro district and although I worked hard when I was at the gym, all the other choices in my life started to become easy. I would talk about them with my new friends; they would ask me about how I was doing; and I could see how well these healthier choices were working for them. It was like I was cheating, but it was just self-efficacy. It was just learning a “new normal.”

Jim Rohn says, “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” So make that choice wisely and, thanks to Social Cognitive Theory, everything else might just get easier.
