Confessions Of A Serial Dieter is the result of the author’s personal experiences in managing her weight. It looks into the myths, dilemmas and other weight related aspects that gives the readers a step-by-step approaching on attaining their ideal weight.

Summary Of The Book

Confessions Of A Serial Dieter is the author’s weight loss memoir. It tells the reader about her secret on reducing her weight from a 100 kgs to an astonishing 60. It is a humorous account of her journey from the age of 4 when she did not know the meaning of dieting to the time she realized how being fat or thin is perceived by others.

The diets in the book are named funnily like The Champagne Diet, and The Wedding Diet, and are structured in a manner similar to the episodes in her life, complete with anecdotes, characters and pieces of weight wisdom. It takes the reader along with the author on her weight loss quest trying out different methods ranging from surya namaskars set to Bollywood tunes and drinking coconut water.

Writing in a style that is simple and accessible to all along with the author’s personal touch, Confessions Of A Serial Dieter has the author sharing her secrets from more than 40 diets to different workouts that helped her attain a weight that she was finally happy with. It also debunks the many myths associated with weight loss and the emotional issues accompanying it. The author also presents to the reader the darker side of the so called “Dieting Industry”. The book also contains a few recipes along with their calorie count.

A "how to do" book and not just a "what to do" book.

This book is very nice book. The author Kali puri has shared her life till now and the diets she did at every stage of her life. Many diets are very good and can be followed to loose weight in a healthy manner. Though some diets are recommended not to be followed one of them being the champaign diet… (View complete review)

Foodies rejoice

This is not just a diet book. Though it will give you great tips on how to shed your excess kilos - some are sensible, some are not. It is a more a delightful memoir of our extremely complex relationship with food. Kalli describes her food with such artistry that you know instantly this book is written by someone who truly loves the stuff - as opposed to most dieticians who couldn't tell a millefuille from a granola bar. What makes it all the more worthwhile is that in the end she has found that perfect balance between hedonistic pleasure and spartanism. It inspired me to get up this morning

First to review

Inspiring and entertaining!

Great book! Finally a book for foodies who want to lose weight. There are so many diets here that you're sure to find one tailored to you own `foodie weakness'! What makes the book work for me is not just the number of diets on offer but also the author's frank confessions that any fat person will relate to. Her anecdotes make you warm up to her and her ideas... a most enjoyable and inspiring read. I'm adopting it as my weight loss bible for 2012!

1. You won't relate to the book
She's very rich. Has studied abroad and lived in multiple countries. One of the weddings she's preparing for takes place in Italy! So even if the struggle she talks about is relatable, the rest of it is not.

2. Lost weight using wrong method
- The book is a journey of how she lost weight. A significant amount was lost because of ultra lipolysis and a very rigid pathetic dieti

Fascinating Book

The book comes under autobiographical genre. The writer has
shared her memories and personal experiences of being fat and
overweight. Later, she switches on strict diet chart prepared
by her dietician and sheds the kilos. But the interesting to read was the way Kalli planned her own diet chart and resist against temptations (chocholates, pastries, etc,)in order to have an healthy and fabulouS look. Through this book, she takes the reader into different food lifestyles and how to deal it mentally and physically. Tips given by her are tried and tested.
So one must read to get different experienc

To be fat

I like this book not as a diet book (I would never follow any of these bizarre diets) but as a memoir. I bet this book took lots of guts to write and publish. If the aim of the author was to motivate the reader to really take their health seriously, I think the book really works. It also reflects how much we associate ourselves with our bodies. Kalli's obsession to lose weight is positively inspiring albeit a little scary. It takes a fat girl to get into the mind of one and for once, I appreciate the 'advice' coming from a 'credible' source. I may not follow her advice, but I've got to say she

YOU ARE THE HEROINE

Loved the book! Don't think ever read anything that

actually talks about the psychological aspects of having a

body that you don't want... Can't be compared at all to all

those books written by professional diet doctors...they are

so dry! They just don't get it. Kalli Purie's book is like

reading a fiction, fun and full of action, where you are

the heroine.

Not really worth the time

1. The diet that the author follws is what south delhi dietician Nishi Grover prescribes. Nothing original in it.
2. No normal person in his or her normal senses can carry it on for more than 40-60 days or retain the weight loss beyond 2 months. Its a torture. Starvation.
3. Weight loss should be a process which makes you used to a normal balanced diet which you can set as your lifestyle. No1 can survive on a glass of clear soup or salad (not both) before 5PM as the last meal of the day, his or her entire life. It has 2 be something more rational.

Don't get it

I was looking forward to reading this book because I thought it must be like one woman's journey to true weight loss. I don't think we're all lucky enough to have lived in different continents, having been proposed for marriage somewhere exotic, etc. Beyond that, the methods that Kalli has tried are EXPENSIVE. She went off to a retreat for like a month, then she went to Dee who was also very strict and obviously charged a lot of consultation fees. Then she got herself a personal trainer to fit into a dress for a wedding at ITALY. She lost more weight by fad diets than she did by eating right a

Good effort

The writing is good, but the diets are no easy to follow. Anyways, let me how much I can follow this one.

This can't be the best book I have read on the subject, but comes close. The exercises illustrated are easy to follow.
