From the Inside Flap

One of the two launch titles in the Perfect Health Library series by bestselling author Dr. Deepak Chopra, Perfect Weight focuses on Ayurveda, the ancient Indian science of life, to help readers conquer their weight problems.

About the Author

Deepak Chopra, educational director of The Chopra Center For Well Being in La Jolla, California, is a pioneer in helping individuals maximize their ability to achieve success and fulfillment through mind body techniques.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have lost weight all of my life. I have lost well over 500 pounds. (20 to 30 pounds per year) Gain, lose, gain lose; I took comfort in knowing the bears do it. The only problem as Deepak notes is that there is scientific evidence that yo yo weight control is not good for your health. With the exception of those who are clinically obese, over 25% above the normal weight for your body type, the yo yo'er is a big risk. I have successfully done just about every diet out there. The only problem is that each of them is based on excluding a food group out of your diet. After a while you crave that food group.
Talk about the "Power of Coincidence" part of another one of Deepak's books, I was at a party, and this girl who was in great shape said, "It's all about moderation and exercise" I heard that from others who have always been in great shape all their lives. The only problem is that I can't think about restricting portions or counting calories. Then along comes Deepak with the perfect answer. His program is simple, for the first two weeks only eat when you are truly hungry. He identifies the different levels of hunger, and assigns them a number. 0-1 is the first level. You feel real hunger, it is gnawing at you. This is the time when your body is prepared to assimilate food. Then you have the levels in between which is when we eat when we are not truly hungry. Maybe because it is dinnertime, or maybe because we have emotional needs that are not being met, and we are substituting food. Emotional eating as a substitute. When we are truly hungry at level 0-1, we then eat, and concentrate on what we are eating. Don't watch TV, don't talk just absorb the food.

Format: Paperback
For years I read self-help and motivational books. Like 7 habits for highly effective people, Life strategies - Doing what matters doing what works and the likes. But never having dedicatede the time and effort to start the procces to actually put my knowleged into practical application.
My new-years resolution for 2001 was "More love for me, More love to what I do!" And come feb. life handed me an oppotunity to drop off the radar and start practicing what I had been preacing to my self for years.
I had been over weight since I was 13-14 years old.
Simplyfied but true, at 137 kg, being fat was my ultimate excuse for anything wrong that happend in my life.
So I decided to focus my attention to turn the tabel and start showing myself the love I felt I lacked.
I had known about Chopra for years and when I came across this book I thought "Why not this way!" and bought it.
To cut an already long story short :-)
Now a year and a half later I'm at 88-90kg (Down some 50kg)
Wow, but the most important points I will stress to you wanting to use this book as inspiration and guide. Drink the boiling water and don't focus on how much you loose in Lbs./Kg's, but how much you show your self that you're worth it, by sticking to your plan. And don't forget... If you fall of the horse - TRY AGAIN! Best of wishes and loads of love to you all - You ARE worth it, you just wait and see ;-)

Format: Paperback
Dr. Deepak Chopra has done it again, this time with a book that focuses on one of America's main concerns: weight loss. Rather than doling out questionable information about low-carb, high-protein, or low-fat plans, Dr. Chopra turns to Ayurvedic medicine and offers a plan which anyone can follow. It's quite simple: determine your main body type from the three doshas -- vata, pitta, or kapha -- and then follow the suggestions provided so as to achieve balance in not only weight, but life as a whole. Most of Dr. Chopra's lessons should strike a chord within us -- they are inherent pearls of wisdom that many have unfortunately chosen to forget or have disregarded. Once you recommit yourself to this healthy way of living, get ready for incredible changes! In other words, *don't* expect instant weight loss (this is not a "too good to be true" program), but *do* expect healthy weight loss and a new outlook on life beyond food. As Dr. Chopra points out, the mind and body work together -- and his plan concentrates on both.

I was amazed at how much information was packed into such a modest looking book. I read it twice and made so many notes. I borrowed this copy but am buying one for my own reference. I also researched blood type dieting and it all ties in together. The guidelines and information detailed in Perfect Weight make dieting obsolete and transforming my lifestyle into changes my body is craving naturally. Stress free and pleasurable. Simply the best advice I've ever read on the subject.

I had to read this book twice, the second time with a pen, so that I could underline the most important facts. It is very refreshing not to have to think in terms of calories. I am trying the diet, and it is really easy to follow, unlike many other diets I have tried and believe me, I have tried them all and have gained weight in the process.
Without sounding too cliched, this is more a "way of life"
