On The Cover: Women And The Weight Loss Tamasha by Rujuta Diwekar


I have of late been obsessed with losing weight. Not that I am overweight or anything, but I just want to get more fit and toned. And I must say I have lost many many many sleepless nights and evenings and days for it...not to mention the delicious food and what not! So finally my hubby decided to gift me this wonderful book called 'Women And The Weight Loss Tamasha by Rujuta Diwekar' and I must say it's been an eye-opener. So for all you ladies, if you have ever worried about your weight (which I'm sure all us women do no matter our waist size and weight), this is one of those books which you MUST MUST MUST READ.....

Here's what the cover jacket says:

'Women & The WeightLoss Tamasha from the author of 'Don't Lose Your Mind, Lose Your Weight' with a personal note from Kareena Kapoor

BRING BACK THE TONE IN YOUR BODY, THE GLOW ON YOUR FACE AND THE SENSE IN YOUR HEAD. LET'S END THE WEIGHT LOSS TAMASHA!

The nutritionist who taught us that simply eating (pun intended) is the jey to a fab body is back with a comprehensive book on women, food and everything in between. From puberty to marriage, from pregnancy to menopause, Rujuta explains in detail the changes women go through (and God knows as Indian women we go through way beyond those just hormonal - husband, in-laws, children, career etc.) and how what we do (or don't) during these phases affects our overall well-being.

Building on her four principles of eating right from 'Don't Lose Your Mind Lose Your Weight', she goes to share her four strategies (Nutrition, Exercise, Sleep and Relationships) for each of these phases and especially the lifestyle disorders of PCOD, hypothyroid and diabetes. Rujuta, in her usual indomitable style, debunks (rubbishes rather) myths related to food, hormones and workouts, forces us to rethink our belief that pregnancy, menopause, hypothyroid, etc. come in the way of losing weight and reveals just how easy it is to remain healthy, strong and fit through one's life.'
