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'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.

Format: Paperback
I wasn't going to read this book, based upon the "slim and sexy" claim in just four weeks. Just like claims that are too good to be true, unless you have only a few pounds to lose and you are already sexy, you aren't going to get there in four weeks. I also disagree with the back of the book that proudly reads that you'll get "a long and lean yoga body without all the work". Um, no. The yoga poses are challenging and you will sweat, so there will be work.

Though I had written off the book based on the cover (yes, a bad habit, I know), I heard good things about it so I thought I'd check it out. I'm glad I did. Yoga Body Diet gives a good grounding in Ayurvedic eating (fully explained in the book, with a quiz to help you identify your own personalized plan), as well as good strategies such as stopping snacking, no eating before bed, eating organically and seasonally.

I enjoyed the explanation of Ayurveda, the poses best suited for each dosha, good recipes personalized for each type and a shopping list tailored to the dosha. The yoga poses are diagrammed at the back of the book and the explanations seem good but I would be concerned that any newbie to yoga could get injured in some of the advanced poses that are included here. The authors suggest finding a yoga class for instruction and pose correction, but there should be some caveats on poses like shoulderstand, crow, plank - folks with more pounds to lose could get hurt trying these poses before they are ready. Modifying poses is perfectly acceptable if your body isn't ready for the full posture.

If the reader is realistic in his/her expectations, this book could be a smart way to improve your energy, your strength, your flexibility and your waistline. Blurbs on covers sell books but the facts inside are what counts.
