Deepika Padukone for ‘Depression’ , Kalki Koechlin for ‘Feminism’ , Nandita Das For ‘Dark Is Beautiful’ , We need a celebrity for a social cause to get attention And now thanks to this book we finally have Kareena Kapoor for Body Shaming Kareena Kapoor has always maintained.
If you think that atleast someone that beautiful can never be body shamed Think Again In her personal note, she mentioned ‘When someone recently commented on a picture of mine post a yoga class and said I looked fat I realized how insensitive people can be, even if a woman has just delivered’ Let’s accept it Body shaming is a problem But there is one thing that I’ve learnt from Kareena Kapoor So, I don’t think Rujuta and Kareena really care about what the society has to say I think the reason why they wrote this book is to let you know that the most important person in your life is YOU I am going to divide my review of this book into 2 parts-
One, things I really loved about this book and two, things that could’ve been better
Now, there are 3 things that I really loved about this book I am sure you know atleast
‘fitness freak’ who has asked you to have boring things like Low-Fat Milk or Sugar-Free Chai or Air-Fried Chicken Breast and then you have this lady who tells you that pregnant or not if you want to lose weight have Tadkey wali Daal Ghee wali Roti and Dahi Rice with Achaar and don’t worry in the book she justifies why So, diet-wise Rujuta sets a lot of things straight
In this book Rujuta divides pregnancy into 3 Trimesters And for each trimester she shares that serve best both for the mother and the baby
Number three Now,
how to lose weight after pregnancy? Rujuta in Chapter 4 for losing weight, gives a lot of importance to Strength Training Now, a lot of us women worry that if we do weights we will either bulk up or start looking like a man. Now coming to things that could’ve been better Rujuta obviously loves home cooked food and she says that we should eat food within 3 hours of that being cooked without re-heating anything and we all know how impractical that is as an advice in today’s age I wish she would’ve shared some healthy dishes that could be made and stored for later use or some healthy dishes that could be quickly whipped up right before leaving for work Having said that I still agree with most of the things that are mentioned in this book because Rujuta says the same things that have been already told to us by our mothers and Mother in laws .
If you are planning on getting pregnant and want to read a book about morning sickness swollen feet itchy nipples itchy navel and what you can do about it then this is the book to go to So, ladies and gentlemen learn to take care of yourself first whether you are pregnant or not a man or a woman young or old take care of yourself first because if you are happy you will keep the people around you happy and in the end, that’s all that matters!
