'At home, if I sit with my son in my arms he cries. So I walk around the house. He wants me to walk. He is keeping me on my toes. He is preparing me for the future, for the days to come.'
"I did not know what was in store for me post pregnancy. I did not know what this phase would be like," Kareena Kapoor Khan said at her first public interaction since her son Taimur was born.
"I am lot more energetic, happy and content. I am multitasking and enjoy everyday," Kareena said during a Facebook chat in Mumbai with celebrity dietitian Rujuta Diwekar.
"Everything has been changing in the nine months and it takes time to get back (in shape). I remember telling Rujuta that let's get back to Tashan diet (referring to her 'size zero' look) and she told me we can't do it and we need to do it in progression," the 36-year-old star said.
Actresses are often under scanner for their weight gain post pregnancy and Kareena was called overweight on social media, post delivery of her son in December.
"How can somebody say I am overweight? We are always monitored. I want people to accept me in every phase," she said.
According to Rujuta, Kareena's diet has been sustainable and she is glowing and looking good.
"I have heard one should not have dairy products but Rujuta thinks otherwise. I have been having a glass full of milk and yogurt. I have bajra roti with ghee, jaggery and rice or khichdi twice a day. It's about eating the right kind of food and in right proportion and quantity," she said.
Beside following the diet, Kareena said she walks, which she feels is the best form of exercise.
"I do walk. At home, if I sit with my son in my arms he cries. So I walk around the house. He wants me to walk. He is keeping me on my toes. He is preparing me for the future, for the days to come," she said.
