Myth busting: Eat to lose that extra flab
Please eat or you are not going to lose weight, says Bollywood actress Kareena Kapoor, the size zero protagonist, standing a popular notion on its head.
`As an actress, who works 18-20 hours a day under gruelling circumstances, shooting all nights; playing and feeling a range of emotions, (sometimes, I have to dance in the rain trying to look beautiful and, above all, trying to stay slim) my stomach makes a call of hunger. And like a good girl, every 2-3 hours I attend to it,` writes Kareena Kapoor in a new book, `Women and The Weight Loss Tamasha` (Westland Ltd) authored by her fitness trainer Rujuta Diwekar, the driving force behind Kareena`s `size zero` look.
Kareena advises women `to slip in a slice of cheese, some peanuts and an apple in their handbag` to take care of the intermittent pangs of hunger.
According to Diwekar, the best-selling author of `Don`t Lose Your Mind, Lose Your Weight`, the `four cardinal principles of eating right are to eat something within the first 10-15 minutes of waking up, eating every two hours, eating more when you are active and less when you are not; and finishing your last meal at least two hours prior to sleeping`.
