We all know how much Alia Bhatt enjoys eating, especially home-cooked food. So, in order to reduce weight or get back in shape, she didn't follow an unhealthy diet. According to her, the core idea of wellness should be to be physically active and fit rather than starving yourself by following any specific diet.

Alia Bhatt 5/5

Alia Bhatt has been inspiring other new moms through her social media posts. In one such post, she wrote, “To my fellow mamas, listening to your body post delivery is key. Do not do anything your gut tells you not to. For the first week or two during my workouts, all I did was breathe, walk, and find my stability and balance again and I still have a long way to go. So, take your time and most importantly appreciate what your body has done.” So, don't be harsh on yourself, and give your body some time and space. Image courtesy: Alia Bhatt | Instagram
