Kareena Kapoor On Being 20 Kilos Overweight During Her First Pregnancy: ‘I Used To Eat 5 To 10 Parathas A Day’
When Kareena Kapoor Khan revealed she used to eat 5 to 10 parathas a day during her first pregnancy!
Kareena Kapoor Khan is an inspiration to millions when it comes to striking a perfect balance between her professional and personal life. But did you know at the time of her first pregnancy, she was 20 kilos overweight and was asked to not overeat by doctors? In an old interview, Bebo revealed that when she was pregnant with her first child she used to eat 5 to 10 parathas a day.
Back in 2019, Kareena in an interview with Rediff spoke about her pregnancy diet and stated, “I am generally an hypochondriac, so I used to ask my doctor 100 questions! There would be a question every day until he told me, 'Listen, there's nothing to ask, just relax.' Of course, it was a first-time pregnancy and my sister (Karisma Kapoor) was just a phone call away. She would guide me. My doctor would ask me to come and weigh myself because he said you are 20 kilos overweight, itna mat khao! Actually, you are not supposed to overeat during pregnancy because then you get acidity. You have to eat right. I did try to do that for six months, but after that, it was all downhill. But I enjoyed my pregnancy.”
She went on to reveal that while she was filming Good Newwz, she wore a prosthetic swimsuit with a belly under her clothes and it looked so natural with a belly button, she had forgotten what it was like to be pregnant. “This was a pregnancy without parathas, that was a pregnancy with parathas! I used to eat five to 10 parathas a day. Now, I eat one,” Kareena further stated.
