What this book does best is to help break the cycle of bad habits, which at the back of the mind most of us are aware of. It is an easy read with enough for a medically inquisitive mind. The case studies of real patients helps to keep it well..."real" as you are able to identify with one or more of them.
I liked the book primarily because it explains the causality behind CAD (and metabolic diseases more generally), in a simple, easy to understand way.
Regardless of where you stand on the low fat vs. low carb spectrum, it highlights what both sides appear to agree on:
a) eat a lot of nutrient dense foods (especially, plant based)
b) get a lot of exercise
These are simple rules, but this book offers some useful and practical guidelines, including suggestions for apps. The book is also novel in that it emphasizes ratios, rather than presenting absolute targets.
If you are of Indian origin, this book offers what several others do not. It has an excellent understanding of Indian cultures, and offers suggestions, including recipes, that are geared specifically for Indo-Americans.
A suggestion. While reading this book, don't take the recommendations to suggest that you can be a glutton, especially when it comes to Saturated fats, which, in high concentrations, do cause oxidative stress (see e.g. [...]
Eat in moderation. Control portion sizes. Eat a lot of anti-oxidant foods. Choose your carbohydrate food sources carefully, emphasizing low-glycemic and high-anti oxidant ones.
I have gained a great deal from this book, and recommend it whole-heartedly. It is brilliantly written, and extremely useful. A game changer for Indian-Americans.
I was very impressed by him and bought his book.
After reading initial chapters of this book I immidiately started practising his advise. I was pleasantly surpringed to see huge improvement in my Cholesterol and Tryglyceride levels only after 2 months. This was made possible by controlling Carbs (Rice/Chapatis) and taking more vegetables/fruites along with regular excercise as detailed in the book.
Thanks for Dr Sinha, this has really changed my lifestyle for good. I highly recommend this book!
I use this book in conjunction with Aurveda book from Vasant Lad as Ayurveda has better guidelines for managing food and health.
