Don?t Lose Your Mind, Lose Your Weight (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs.143

Don't Lose Your Mind Lose Your Weight, written by Rujuta Diwekar, unveils many myths on weight loss and dieting.

Summary Of The Book

In the age of size zero figures, it is important to remember that dieting is not about senseless diet regimes and unrealistic figure sizes, but rather about feeling healthy and having more levels of energy. Diwekar, in her book, reveals the basics of nutrition and highlights the importance of losing weight rather than one's mind.

Don't Lose Your Mind Lose Your Weight discusses the balance needed between overeating and deprivation of meals. The author highlights the misconceptions that people have regarding nutrition and dieting. With interesting incidents and quotes based on her experience, the author tries to help the readers get better insights into the internal workings of the body.

The author, instead of focusing on dieting, focuses on the importance of eating right. Divided into six sections, each part of the book deals with different concepts related to dieting. The book has been written keeping in mind the different ages and body types.

Section 1 of the book discusses the contemporary trends that people are adopting today and how eating can actually help rather than dieting. The following chapter talks about how we can train our stomachs and have a balanced meal. Chapter three reveals the different nutrients present in our food and how even pizzas and jamuns can be eaten without adding to our weight.

The fourth chapter reveals the four important principles of eating right. The book emphasizes avoiding beverages in the morning, eating every two hours, eating more when your body is active and less when not, and lastly finishing the final meal two hours before sleeping.
In the last two sections, Rujuta explains how these tips can be put into practice and enlists many steps that can be followed for a better life. The final section of the book is Bollywood actress Kareena Kapoor’s journey to fitness and her tips for a slimmer waist.

Don't Lose Your Mind Lose Your Weight was published in 2009. The book has sold over 4 lakh copies and was the bestseller in the non-fiction category in 2009.

Don't Lose your mind, Lose your weight by Rujuta Diwekar, the one behind Kareena Kapoor's marvellous figure is a refreshing read.
Unlike preachy, regimental, tough and curtail some diets, the book offers realistic measures that can be adopted in order to stay healthy and fit. Don't count the calories, count whether you're fit is what the author vouches for.
Narrating her interactions with different clients and people from all walks of life, she subtly conveys the message of how to eat right.
The book explores the fad behind crash diets, disadvantages of having Sugarfree, eating in a relaxed manner, eating whole fruits - not cutting them retains their nutrients, eating according to one's genes and eating local produce and seasonal food.
I was thrilled to read that having Paneer parantha is better than having Pizza. Rujuta also warns that people lost not only their weight to Atkins diet, but also their health.
She suggests eating everything (which is what I love about this book), but at the right time, right quantity and at the right intervals. Indulge in sweets once a week(don't eat them with a meal though !), have home-made pakoras once a month(immediately after frying ),she says.
She explains thru examples that processed food is harmful as it contains Transfats. I was dumbstruck when I read that including nuts, cheese and other dairy products in your daily diet is good for your health.
Sticking to cooking in your mother's Iron pot, kadhai or tawa is good as adds Iron to your body. Sources of different Vitamins and their importance are mentioned in an interesting manner. Take for instance, Vitamin A supports our immune system and helps prevent cancer, Vitamin E protects the heart, Vitamin K helps in building healthy bones, Vitamin C is an antioxidant and Vitamin B helps metabolise Carbohydrates, aids digestion, improves nerve function and prevents Depression.
Avoid waking up to Tea/Coffee, eat small meals frequently and eat dinner 2 hours before you sleep are her primary tips to the health-conscious person. Exercise at least 3 hours a week and remember that "Exercise is a way to improve fitness, blood circulation and to love the body."
The book is well-structured, livened up with examples, diet charts, tips and much much more. So, go grab your copy too !! (or one for your partner !!)
This book was gifted to me by my hubby and has made more aware of how to eat right and exercise regularly. Thanks Vikash (my hubby) and thanks Rujuta for coming up with such an interesting book !!

Truly a Diet Bible.Alters your perception of dieting not the food.

This book is all about altering your thinking about Dieting, and it works.
This is not a ordinary diet book where they throw on you a diet chart ,asks you to follow and loose weight. That never works,because our culture is so diverse,what people eat daily changes every 100 kms,so a Mumbaikar making a diet chart will not work for guy living in Meerut,U.P. He might be able to survive for a week or two but thats it then his genes will take over and he'll end up eating ghar ka bana mummy ke haath ka khana(in our families the amount of love is shown by the amount of ghee/chaunk/oil in our food)...

So what Rujuta does is,tell us,how does your digestion work,a few tips (a lot actually) and her 4 principles of eating,gives us a few ideas what should we prefer to eat (I hope there were some more) and even lets us eat Samosas,Gulab Jamun,Parathas,Pizza etc(No this is not a typo,this is actually a part of your diet),
the only thing what changes is WHEN you eat. She just alters our When,and asks us to eat everything including Cheese.

For 119 bucks I would definitely recommend this. Now that you have tried (and failed) all the dietings known to mankind,just spend another 100 bucks and give this a shot.

My final Verdict- Game Changer.

Sheer iconoclasm!

Rujuta elucidates on the cardinal role the nutrition plays in our everyday lives and how these diet plans can't be generalized for everyone. She clears the air on many misconceptions we have regarding dieting. An excellent companion to shed your extra pounds.

Good read

It's good a lot of useful information about nutrition, not necessarily about losing weight. Then again, this book states that it should not be about losing weight but just staying fit. Thats a meaningful pursuit. Though the part about kareena is blown out of proportions. Good read nevertheless (View complete review)

An excellent book on diet management for Indians

This book is not about "dieting", it's also not about "weight loss", strictly speaking. It's actually about eating. How, when and what to eat. I bought this book, not to lose a ton of weight, but because I felt the way I ate was just not right. And what I have gained from the... (View complete review)
