So if I've to be at work one day, Raj brings his meetings home." When she returned home with her baby, Shilpa gained another 5 kilos. "I ate things made with ghee and drank whole milk. Like most mothers, my attitude was old school-baby comes first.", she quips.
She began her weight-loss and fitness programme after her son turned five months. It began with an hour of CrossFit four times a week and yoga once a week.
