Taimur’s doting aunt, Rujuta had earlier set out to write a book for kids on nutrition and the knowledge of his arrival resulted in some change of plans. With Kareena as her muse, Rujuta set out to pen down a comprehensive book on pregnancy that would serve as the go-to text for any woman ‘before,’ ‘after’ or ‘during’ her pregnancy.

I am really excited as we are already getting good reviews. The most special thing about the book is that it has crowd sourced recipes for the first ever time and that is something which even Kareena is excited about. I think just like Don’t Lose Your Mind, Lose Your Weight, this book will be an inspiration those who are looking to lose all the weight post pregnancy.”
Adding on Rujuta’s advise to the audience, Kareena Kapoor Khan, who has been creating headlines for beautifully managing her pregnancy, “It’s easier for everyone to eat clean. There is nothing that we are doing that is out of the box. I was eating basic home cooked meal which keeps me healthy and happy. How difficult is that? When I decided to get pregnant, the first person I called was Rujuta and told her lets work towards it. If I am fit before pregnancy that everything thereon, will be a smooth sailing experience. The whole pregnancy was so easy that maybe I should do that again.”
