      Why is there a shipping charge for this item?

      Sellers with Flipkart Assured waive off the delivery charge for Orders over Rs 500. For Orders under Rs 500, a nominal delivery charge is added per item.

      What is the estimated delivery time?

      Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.

      Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

      Why does the estimated delivery time vary for each seller?

      If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

      Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

      • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location
      • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
      • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

      At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

    Description

    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.

    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 haat...

    Life changing

    Rujuta manages to combine all the scientific knowledge that we need to know about the food we eat with a very humorous twist. There's also a bit of spirituality thrown in which makes it a unique read for me.

    Following the advice outlined in this book, I have been able to lose more than 12 kilos in 9 months and more importantly have not gained it back.

    I have changed my way of eating radically and at the same time eating the same food which I have eaten all my life.

    Thank you Rujuta for ...

    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.
