How Zen and “Kill Bill” Helped Uma Thurman Lose Weight
Quentin Tarantino wrote the script “Kill Bill” just for Uma Thurman. She was pregnant at the time and couldn’t do crazy stunts. There was a one year delay in filming. Three months after she had a boy, the actress showed up at the movie set. She faced a challenge of losing 25 pregnancy pounds. Uma toiled nine till five learning how to handle a sword, mastering kung fu and yoga. She was offered a diet based on Zen philosophy. According to Zen, food is considered as the vital need instead of a source of pleasure. Zen diet bans all bitter, salty, spicy, fatty and fried dishes. Thurman ended up eating steamed meat and fish, beans, boiled and raw vegetables and drank green tea.
