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.

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 morni... ()

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!

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.

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... ()

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.

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...
