More About the Author

Rujuta Diwekar works out of Mumbai, practises yoga in Rishikesh, ideates in Uttarkashi and treks in rest of the Indian Himalaya. Winner of the Nutrition Award 2010 from Asian Institute of Gastroenterology, she is amongst the most qualified and sought after practitioners in India today and the only nutritionist to have accreditation from Sports Dietitians, Australia. Her first book sold more than 2 lakh copies in 4 languages and is still in the National best-seller list, more than 100 weeks after its debut.

In the plethora of diet fads and fears, Rujuta's voice rings loud and clear, urging us to use our common sense and un-complicate the act of eating. With over a decade of experience working with people from all walks of life, (the more famous ones being Kareena Kapoor, Anil Ambani, Preity Zinta, Karishma Kapoor, Saif Ali Khan and Konkona Sen), she has fine-tuned her methods to the real issues facing the Urban Indians.

Love it!!! To the point, no nonsense writing style. All claims (seemingly outrageous but honest and in my experience, true!) supported by scientic info. Great tips and suggestions for what-to-eat for Indian vegetarians. My fav part - eat lots of different things throughout the day (in limited quanity of course) to get a balanced veg meal :-) The can-do attitude the book encourages will actually make you INITIATE THE CHANGE in your lifestyle. The focus on a well-rounded healthy living by managing both diet and exercise together is I think the crux of her book. She gives you tips on how to go about it. But essentially if you get the principles in the book, you can be the designer of your own healthy life!

The book provides common sense to our eating habits. The problem is that it assumes that we all lead normal lives, with time to breathe, and smell our food and wake up plenty in time to make big breakfast or get home early enough to cook health meals. It assumes also that the non-Indian readers can somehow figure out all the Indian ingredients and follow up. On the flip side I really enjoyed her sense of humor and the reasonable approach in food. I haven't lost any inches but I liked all the stories shared and advices on how and when to eat food and make it work for you. Thanks.

I must say that Rujutha is born for a cause. I always held that no food is good or bad. I had no words when people performed their tadkas as rituals with one teaspoon oil, cut down on those delicious South Indian chutneys in the name of gaining weight - as they gorged away happily on sweets and bought those fat free and artificial Margarine in place real butter. This used to bring tears in my eyes.C'mon, my mother and grandmothers cooked with real tadkas wafting their aromas upto half a kilometer, ate healthy Indian Food and lived a healthy life. They were not fat !! What is wrong with us? Please God !! Save Indian Food, my heart would rent out a cry. Rujutha has saved Indian Food, our parathas, ghee, chutneys, the tastiest and the most nutritious fares from the onslought of ignorance. Hats off to this woman!!! I admire her. We needed her.

I loved everything about the book and eat fearlessly now and realize now, how less I ate, and starved myself (though I was never on any of the fad diet programs and never overweight ),but being a busy Student, a globe-trotting professional I had hardly the time and mood to eat and in the process, I made my body suffer years in silence, while it managed me with it's much hated 'fat stores'. I have stopped this atrocity on myself now. I will eat my favorite foods, Indian, italian, whatever., in a moderate way for a life time now and that is called a Diet!!! I love it.

This book is a must read for anyone interested in a healthy life irrepective of their geographical Location, latitude or longitude. It's principles are the fundamental take aways that apply to any culture.

Its a 'simple to understand', metaphorical, persuasive book!
Close on the heels of realizing, "why do I need an external validation of 'myself'?, when I love myself and love being with myself" and to achieve this - understanding the importance of trying to be in touch with myself (by increasing awareness), I tumbled upon this book...(I had heard about it in bits and pieces but not read it)
The overarching msg I get from the book is another method for me to follow around 'getting in touch with myself'. Food is One of the ways an individual can connect with his/her inner self (rather is an imp process to move inward) - "Anna he purnabrahma" (here Brahma can mean god/our inner or spiritual self)
The day we start recognizing our hunger signals and eat accordingly, we reach the first step... Rujutha connects the dots well - Ayurveda, Yoga and Nutrition science. She literally shouts 'dont kill yourself by starving'. Eat nutrient rich meal close to your 'genes' at the right time, right quantity, and calorie intake will fall in place if we follow 4 principles (the cornerstone of her book). Stop chasing calories by hanging your stomach on the 'suli'. She shames 'We understand our cars, houses, heart and lungs so much better and forget the energy churning stomach...' Her reasoning is good - why vitamin/mineral supplements shud be taken - many of us believe that taking external vit/mineral supplements is not the right way, we shud get these naturally... she gives a story line why this cannot happen in an urban set up..How the major nutrients (carb, proteins, fat, mineral/vitamins) need to be eaten at what time, why and in what proportions.She explains why stress causes obesity - cortisol increases-->converts any food to fat-->.

Rujutu, is an amazing author, and she wrote this book as if she is speaking to her best friend. You can see her passion through her words, and the fact that she loves her job! You may think why is this important? But, if you look at all these so called weight loss magic pills or diet plans; like the green tea diet, or the acai berry, or hoodia etc. They are nothing but a source of making money! Rujuta on the other hand, she has spilled alll the info you need to make your own personalized diet, which not only works, but keeps you satisfied and never hungry! The best thing is, her philosophy of weight loss is guaranteed on EVERYONE. If you follow it properly, with a positive attitude, and dedication, you will lose weight. I started following her principles exactly two weeks ago and I have already lost 7 pounds! This book is the ultimate source of weight loss, following SIMPLE and EASY steps such as - waking up early, going to bed early, not having coffee/tea first thing in the morning, not eating two hours before bed, not eating on front of the tv -- makes ALL the difference. I am actually glad I was a little over weight, or else I would have never came across this book and would have never learned how to appreciate food & become the healthy new me! [Thanks to Rujuta<3 ] You will not regret buying this book! Someone complained they paid $11 + $5 shipping... trust me, it is worth much more! Also, once you start following the book if you have any questions you can directly ask them on Rujuta's Facebook Page. Ruj personally replies to EVERY single post with an answer *Free of charge!* ;)
