According to Kareena Kapoor, this book, ‘Pregnancy Bible’, is her third child. It is a very personal account of what she experienced physically and emotionally through both her pregnancies. Kareena became a mother for the second time in February this year. Following is an excerpt of her book, ‘Kareena Kapoor Khan’s Pregnancy Bible’, where she shares how she ate simple, home cooked meals through her pregnancies, as well as indulged her cravings:

“My two pregnancies were completely different from each other. But there was one common strand that ran through both of them, my obsession with pepperoni pizza! Whenever we went out with friends, it was a given that I would eat pepperoni pizza. My friends would sit across the table from me, watching in disbelief (and probably embarrassment) as I demolished one pizza after another.

“All that salt intake took its toll. In my last trimester during both pregnancies, I got bloaty under the eyes. My fingers swelled up so much that I couldn’t take off my ring. I wisened up the second time around though and took off my rings by my eighth month. Forced to choose between my pepperoni and my wedding ring, I chose pepperoni!

“Mind you, I am very health conscious usually. I never add extra salt to my homemade salad. I know it’s not great for me. And if I fed into my cravings on one day, I would try to be super healthy for the next two days. But then I’d fall off the wagon again. I guess there is no pregnancy without cravings. What I ate in a day..”

“Now I wasn’t all pizza through the nine months and did also try and eat as well as possible. When I first began working with my nutritionist Rujuta Diwekar, she got me to start the morning with a banana and I’ve stuck to that. It is excellent for your iron and potassium requirements. So my day always, always begins with one banana and five almonds. This has never changed, whether or not I’m pregnant.”

In this way, she describes what type of food method she followed during the pregnant period.

This book gives extra insights into the life of pregnancy.
