Power-packed performances, a suave actor-boyfriend and a 'size-zero' figure - Kareena Kapoor does know how to make people envy her!

Eat more often to lose weight
Unlike most Bollywood actresses of the yore, her career growth has parallelled her diminishing waistline. But getting fit is a lot of hard work. In the foreword that she has written in her dietician Rujuta Diwekar's book, Don't Lose Your Mind, Lose Your Weight, she talks of how as a Kapoor she can't do without parathas, paneer and cheese and what she liked Diwekar's diet formula was that she was allowed all of it. She says that she eats every two hours and still manages to fit into bikinis.

Get snacking!
Kareena snacks on peanuts, roasted chana, dry fruits, cheese, fruits, sandwiches and soy milk through the day instead of eating large meals at lunch or dinner. She prefers nutritious home-cooked food, avoids carbohydrates with high glycemic index such as pasta, noodles, white rice, biscuits, pancakes and crepes, drinks a lot of water and is vegetarian.

Power your body with yoga
Kareena starts her day with "60 surya namaskars for half an hour" and believes yoga is a way of life. "If I don't do yoga for a day I feel something is missing. I don't believe in slogging out in a gym or running on a treadmill because gyms are full of AC's. One hour of yoga is enough," she once said in an interview.

It has been a decade since her debut in Refugee and Kareena has managed to lose weight and get gorgeous over the years. There are no short-cuts to fitness. It's all about hard work and patience.
