Don't lose your mind, Lose your weight Book Review
Hello all you lovely girls and boys out there!
Today I would like to bring to you what I have imbibed from this book authored by Rujuta Diwekar.
I am all game for reading well-written and readable books on Health and Staying Fit.There is a series of health books written by leading nutritionists and health gurus from India that have been published recently, and I want to read them all. This is one of them that set the trend for Indian fitness writing. I grabbed this book way back in 2010. Sadly, only finished reading it ....TODAY!! lol Some reader's speed huh. I hope to start on another book today itself, let's hope I finish it well before two years ;)
If you have written one of those amazing books out there that I am talking about, do send me a mail, I promise not to take two years to read and review it. ;) Did I just blow my chances away of reviewing a stunning book? This book has not been sent to me for review, just so you know, I picked it up myself because it intrigued me. I'm glad I did.

So let's talk about the book. It features a statement from Kareena Kapoor right on the front cover. With her figure making waves all over India, who wouldn't be tempted to get this book and take a peak in at what she eats?
It is written in a very simple language, anyone will be able to read and understand. There is a lot of talk in the book which some of you may not find useful but I guess the author was just trying to create an open external dialogue with the reader to keep their attention and it does work for most of the time but there were times when I didn't have that kind of time to sit and read it all. Leisure was not always my friend last year. Somewhere towards the end I started getting a tad muddled but I had highlighted the points that worked for me so I just focused quickly on the essence of the book.
Rujuta Diwekar completed her Sports Nutrition course in Australia.
In this book, she tells you to eat your favourite foods but she highlights on what time of the day and how they should be eaten.
She tells you not to starve or overload yourself with chemically processed foods, which is what most of us do in this fast-paced life.
She tells you to eat first thing in the morning, not more than 30mins from wake up time. I used that and it works in many ways. That's a good one, Rujuta. Read the book to find out the rest :)
All in all, it's an economical buy(@Rs.199, flipkart.com has good deals on it), quick and easy read if you just stick with the book for a week you can get through it. I did not, I lost interest somewhere and then came back to it after a long time but I knew I had to finish it because I need to know
No rocket-science explained in here but it is the most important things that we neglect the most. And for that I would definitely say read it once and remember how important it is to live in a disciplined way. I was expecting some useful exercises to be highlighted and shown with pictures or diagrams in this book, that is what it definitely did not have. As I am typing this I am flipping through the book again just to see if I have really missed seeing any diagrams in there, how come, no exercises? Ofcourse, she stresses on it like crazy but no pictures. There is a mention of Kareena Kapoor benefiting from Surya Namaskars. Salute!
She has come up with another book, I am interested in reading that too because this lady has some interesting tricks up her sleeve.
