In any case, the book is fun and light and I would recommend it to those people who appreciate such a tone of writing. I would definitely say that for someone who is new to reading books on how to eat healthy there is info here that could be pretty useful.
Food is truly a passion for Divya, who used to work in a corporate job that she was not passionate about. As a corporate woman, she thought the answer to being thin was to spend time in a gym and deny herself her favorite foods. Gyms and diet are not the only way to become thin!
I know this, because I lost 100 pounds without dieting or joining a gym. As a former fat girl, I endorse Divya's solutions. Food is to be enjoyed in all its glory, so be selective about which morsels you enjoy. Divya takes it to an unusual extreme in that she prefers not to drink any calories, not even in coffee or tea. It might be hard to trust a woman who loathes coffee, but she redeems herself with her obvious love for chocolate.
As for exercise, Divya suggests ways to move more throughout the day. I personally have lost weight using this principle. It's not about time spent in the gym, it's about being more active.
The only puzzling part of this book is when Divya shares creative ways to get stains out of your clothes. This might be an invaluable tool for foodies, but does not apply to the majority of readers. Nevertheless, she brought up ideas that might be helpful.
This book offers a philosophy for how to enjoy life. Divya tells her personal stories throughout the book with an upbeat and conversational tone. Even if you can't relate to her stories, you can certainly relate to her humor.
I recommend this book as an entertaining read for sexy women who are tired of being told to hate food and spend more time in the gym.
