It is believed that for over four to five years, she practices yoga for almost two hours a day, six days a week. “I do a lot of yoga and pilates. At least 40-45 minutes every day. Like any other girl, I have phases where I feel like binging but usually I also complement my workout with a healthy eating lifestyle,” she said.
As for desi khaana, Kareena says, "Ghee rotis have been part of our traditions, our lifestyle for years. My mother gave me ghee with rice as a child and she’s not stopped giving that to me even now. That keeps my soul happy. What me and Saif have learnt is to feel good,” says Kareena in the documentary."

Talking about her post-pregnancy weight loss, she mentioned, "I had put on 22 kilos during my pregnancy, but I lost all of it within the first six months. This is one tip that somebody shared with me. If you wait too long to keep that weight on, it stays on. Because your body is not used to that weight. That is not your body’s base weight and you need to do something before your body adjusts to the new base weight," says the 44-year-old fashion designer.
"I eat healthy. I am vegetarian. I do have my cheat days but I compensate on the days that follow. And I exercise 5-6 days a week," she added, while talking about her diet.
Cue: Cardio, running and a controlled diet.
While your choice of a quick weight loss could include health drinks or this simple mixture that works like wonder, but do remember that exercise when added to regular healthy desi food can also bring you closer to your goal weight.
