Publisher's Summary

The nutritionist who taught us that simply eating (pun intended) is the key to a fab body is back with a comprehensive book on women, food and everything in between. From puberty to marriage, from pregnancy to menopause, Rujuta explains in detail the changes women go through (and, God knows, as Indian women, we go through way beyond those just hormonal - husband, in-laws, children, career, etc) and how what we do (or don't) during these phases affects our overall well-being. Building on her four principles of eating right from Don't Lose Your Mind, Lose Your Weight, she goes on to share her four strategies (Nutrition, Exercise, Sleep and Relationships) for each of these phases and especially the lifestyle disorders of Pcod, hypothyroid and diabetes. Rujuta, in her usual indomitable style, debunks (rubbishes rather) myths related to food, hormones and workouts; forces us to rethink our belief that pregnancy, menopause, hypothyroid, etc, come in the way of losing weight; and reveals just how easy it is to remain healthy, strong and fit through one's life.

Content is great but Narration lacks expression

Thanks Rujutha for such a good content put together nicely. But I felt there's lack of mood and expression at most of the places.

Fantastically informative and entertaining

Being a woman, I could associate with each and every example! Rujuta's writing style and narration is so simple to understand and amazing. The book is fantastic to understand what we are doing wrong, what we should be doing, and how starving is not an answer to losing weight. it's about what women subject themselves to throughout their life to lose weight.....during childhood, Puberty, before marriage, after marriage, childbirth and even menopause. For your health, and your daughter's and mother's, do read this book. It has strengthened my belief that giving nutrition is more important than eating just food.

Good content with examples

useful to have examples and good to have nutrition book on Indian meals. Narration is a bit too dramatic and could have been better

A bit too dramatic book

Felt like lots of unwanted dramatic narratives. I would like the book to be less dramatic and more to the point

Very important a subject that all women need to be

I love Rujuta's process of reinforcing the Indian way of eating. Eat local, eat traditional and don't count calories. Her narration is ok but the content is so useful.
