‘Lose your weight: Vajan Kami Karaa, Manahshanti navhe’ by Rujuta Divekar.
Is it really possible to lose those kilos without starving and by snacking every two hours? The answer is yes, if done with scientific study. This is what the author tries to do. By stressing on the importance of proper diet, correct exercise and recreation, she advises readers on the tricks behind having a balanced and healthy body. The book is a first in many ways. By going to little details that one rarely thinks of, she shows that losing weight is a cumulative process of many small but important things. For example, she recommends the use of an Indian style toilet rather than the western one. She also stresses on aspects like visiting the dentist once a month, something we rarely do. To a society and generation obsessed with stick thin bodies and dieting, this book is nothing short of a revelation. Told by a specialist by citing examples and studies, the book also gives valuable guidance on good eating habits. Rujuta Divekar needs no introduction; as the personal trainer and dietary advisor to people like Kareena Kapoor, Saif Ali Khan, Lisa, Sonali and others, she has also been voted as the Best Personal Trainer. From guiding Anil Ambani’s marathon effort to writing this book, her experience and knowledge is invaluable particular in this hectic lifestyle that we all have to follow. The Marathi version has been authored by Ujjwala Barve.
