Weight and watch
RUJUTA DIWEKAR, 33, Nutritionist
She is the person behind Kareena Kapoor’s size zero avatar in Tashan (2008), which shocked audiences. Meet Rujuta Diwekar, who is now popularly referred to as a celebrity nutritionist with her high profile clientele, including industrialist Anil Ambani, actors Preity Zinta, Konkona Sen Sharma and Saif Ali Khan.
FIRST BREAK After completing post graduation in sports science and nutrition from SNDT college, Diwekar bagged her first client—filmmaker David Dhawan’s wife Karuna Dhawan. Later, Karuna introduced her to Kareena Kapoor. Diwekar’s popularity grew with the hype around Kareena’s extreme weight loss. Diwekar decided to end the controversy by writing her first book in 2009— Don't Lose your Mind, Lose Your Weight. “I had to clear the air around the hype and tell my side of the story,” she explains. In January this year, her second book, Women & The Weight Loss Tamasha was released in both English and Marathi.
