The book was very helpful when it came to some basic lifestyle and eating habit changes that I have already implemented and will continue.

I picked up The Yoga Body Diet two days ago, and even just reading the first few chapters has been a tremendous help. This book is great. Before buying this book, I already did yoga at a studio but it was really interesting to see my dosha (and I found it very accurate) and to discover that the type of yoga I already did and enjoyed was the one suitable for my dosha! I also really enjoyed the list of food suitable for your dosha, I thought that was an interesting twist and it was also neat to see that a lot of the food I already enjoyed most was on it.

The first part of the book is to slowly guide you through your four weeks. You spend a chapter looking at the total four weeks, and then there's a chapter that follows for each week which focuses on adding new steps to your routine to get you closer to your new union of mind and body. After week one, you take a quiz to see what your main dosha (attribute, there are three of them) is and each dosha has it's own unique chapter to illustrate your personality, pitfalls that may cause you to gain weight, what type of foods you should focus on eating as well as what type of yoga is good for your dosha. Week two focuses more on getting into yoga (whereas week one is on mindful eating and breathing), eating healthier (and for your dosha). Week three gives you harder work outs, and focuses on shrinking your dinner portions (you should eat a larger lunch, with a smaller dinner). Week four is where you continue to shrink your dinner work out even more intensely, and try to move your dinner time to an earlier time (to help burn fat and with digestion). Once you finish week four, you're done and then you enter in maintenance mode which is meant to maintain your new sexy, slim body.

As with any book claiming to give you the quintessential "Body" with a few easy steps I was skeptical. But this book illuminated some easy lifestyle changes (how the body naturally cleanses at night if you don't indulge at night...) that I could incorporate with my yoga practice. I've read other books on Ayerveda and its health benefits but often felt lost and hopeless -- that I would never be able to integrate its principles into my busy and always changing day to day. This book was written with clear, concise and easy to follow instructions on how to live by these principles - with a fun voice. You'll discover so much about your current state of health and the next page presents the solutions for a better you! Yoga, health and self is a constant study and practice and this book is a refreshing voice.

I have been waiting for this book, and it's finally here! I was introduced to ayurveda and yoga last year, and it has been a blessing. This practice has change my life. This has been a daily learning through Chopra books and Dr Douillard he is one of my favorites, and the main reason to buy this book.
The Yoga body diet book has a brief history about yoga, and ayurveda before takes you to the plans week by week. The book also has a test to help you find your doshas, and if you are not familiar with the word, don't worry this book will explain you what it is. After you do the test, you will follow everything that its recommended to you by your dosha. Its amazing you will learn what to eat for your body type dosha and all the yoga poses that will benefit your type. Is like having a manual for your health. I have to say that this books it's very close to the 3 season diet, so if you have the book you probably feel you reading the same book, but of course this has more details, and it has more yoga. I gave this book 4 stars because the authors did not included a page with all the poses to be detach from the book. If you are not familiar with the poses it will be hard to go to the pages looking for your yoga poses, and it will make your practice very stressful. Overall is a good book.

I've been getting into Ayurveda and medicinal nutrition lately and picked this book up locally after doing Dr. Douillard's Colorado Cleanse: 2 Week Detox and Digestion Boot Campthis last spring. Granted, if you're not fairly slim and reasonably sexy already, you're going to need to adopt this lifestyle for longer than four weeks to achieve a lasting goal, but it's a great how-to for changing bad habits gradually. The four week rule is how to slowly incorporate these change into your life in order to make them permanent. I'm usually overwhelmed by trying to work out and eat right since I work two jobs and I'm a full time student. However, this book goes slow (one major change/week) so it's easy to incorporate into my life. I started doing Dr. John Douillard's yoga plan on the Dr. John Douillard: Ayurveda for Weight Loss DVD recently (just 15 minutes in the morning!) and it's been so effortless that I thought I was ready to ramp it up. I still haven't made it to the 60 or 90 minute sessions this book recommends, but it gives me a chance to change up my morning routine and do poses which are more balancing to my dosha and/or the season of the year. I'm pretty tri-doshic but my pitta outweighs my vata/kapha by about two points, so I think I'll orient my yoga development more towards the seasons or how hot/cold I feel during a particular day rather than trying to always do pitta asanas.

One of my favorite parts of this book (and Dr. Douillard's other books) is the grocery list and recipe pages--I take the whole book with me to the grocery store.
