    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 ...

    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!

    Depressing and of no use

    I got this book thinking that she'll share the absurd diets that we chubby people follow and how she finally got a better outlook in life to get accept a healthy lifestyle. I was wrong.

    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 ...

    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 menta...

    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 apprec...

    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, hi...

    Confessions have never been this sweet

    Loved it. Loved it. Just Loved it. An honest account from a working mother/wife. Thoroughly entertaining and unputdownable. For once no one's preaching for what to do and what not to do. A must read for all.

    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.
