Rujuta has not just changed my body but also my mind and soul. She is the bestthing to have happened to my life! Kareena KapoorWant to know how Kareena. 3 days ago Formats, Paperback | site | E Book | Google play It's really about not losing our mind when it comes to the most basic of our needs- feeding. I had downloadd this book a few years back. This book actually tells you should change your standard of living that will help you to lose weight and it does not.

We need protiens. They provide our body with adequate amino acids. Proteins that should be eaten are — egg whites, milk products, lentils, sprouts, nuts and soy. Fats are of two types — Saturated solid at room temperature and Unsaturated liquid at room temperature.

In saturated fats, ghee and milk products is the best of all as it contains short chain fatty acids which are easy to digest and promote good health. Long chain fatty acids as found in animal fats damage cardiovascular health and are hard to digest. MUFA are in olive oil, rice bran oil and peanut oil and is great for moisturizing skin. PUFA comes in two forms — omega 3 and omega 6 and we all know the benefits of these.

Trans fat is the fat that is used in preserving food and gives it texture. This is to be avoided. Instead eat real food within 10 to 15 minutes of waking up. When we sleep, our blood sugar levels drop in the night. In the morning our liver stores are almost empty.

Eat real food. This kicks in the action of insulin, which is secreted by the body as a response to an increase in blood sugar levels. The stimulants provided through tea and coffee increase blood sugar levels but provide zero nutrition to the cells that have been starving for the last hrs.

Eat every 2 hours. Eating every 2 hrs will lead to a conducive environment in the body to burn fat and thus fewer calories get converted to fat and we get a flatter stomach and no need to hold on to fat stores.

Eat more when you are more active and less when you are less active. We need to up our eating during high demand periods and cut down when relaxing. No food is fattening. You have to be just smart enough to choose the right time to eat it.

Eating more when you are more active will make your body an effective calorie burner which will increase the metabolic rate of your body and helps you to lose weight more effectively. Finish your last meal at least 2 hrs prior to sleeping. If you want no stretch marks or want to reduce the ones you already have, eat 2 hrs before bedtime. Some notes from the book If you have to eat a dessert or a pizza slice, have it as a meal in itself and have it as the first thing in the morning.

Book Review: Don’t Lose Your Mind Lose Your Weight

I have no intentions here to judge the author by any means, I cannot. I am sharing my learning and in a way drafting a quick reference guide to Healthy Living, for me and those of you who are committed to Fitness and remaining healthy but are not interested in Reading. So, please excuse me for making it longer than usual, in fact more than a Book Review, I call it a Book Summary. This would continue for my next readings as well. I mean, she recommends the diets in Indian context and culture.

This was one of the reasons I liked reading this book the most. Rujuta, stresses on the need to eat sensibly.

Eating has to be a lifelong commitment, and the diet should be a reflection of this. Diets, or what we eat should be planned as per our activity, lifestyle, fitness, levels, likes, dislikes, genetics etc and it has to be a part of our daily life just as brushing our teeth is Para2, Page No 7.

So Ladies and Gentlemen, reading me, please do not punish yourself by going on the so called dieting spree. Those of you, who are desperate about losing weight, please hold on.

There are many more things you need to know before switching to drastic and unhealthy ways to lose your weight, what many weight loss institutes imply. It is actually Fat loss.

You can achieve it by just falling sick. All these arguments made me to think Weight loss from an altogether different paradigm. I am thankful to Rujuta for enriching me with insights on the habit of eating right.

I am feeling healthier and fit.

In fact, NOT. She argues, even Nicotine and Marijuana are herbal but are they good for health? Certainly Not. The human body is designed for continuous activity. Both Exercising and Eating Right are equally important and contribute to Fat loss and a fit body. I find it true in real day to day life, we value things property, etc. Fruits and not the juices are recommended by her as fruits retain all the vitamins, minerals and fibres which is drained out in liquid form.

Chapter2: How to eat: relearn We should be aware of the threshold of eating the right amount and overeating. Overeaters feel dull, tired, bloated and irritable upon getting up in the morning as a result and which is a confirmed way to gaining fat.

Wash Your hands using a soap. Serve yourself half of preferably what you eat on a nice, clean plate. Preferably adopt cross-legged posture or sit at your usual dining place. While Eating: 1. Drink a glass of water. Start eating preferably with hands and eat slowly.

Chew your food slowly and deliberately. Eat with all your senses and think about how the food is nourishing you from within. After Eating: 1. Stay where are you for few minutes 2. If you are clearing up for yourself, pick up your plate and clean it with water before leaving it in the sink. I know, some readers may consider it somewhat funny, but believe me if you really want to be healthy these basic things matter and the author has rightly pointed this out.

I have seen people avoiding food because of high calorie content and ignore it even if it has high nutrients. Carbs, Proteins and fats are required by the body in higher amounts also called Macro-Nutrients and Vitamins and Minerals are required in lesser amounts also called micro-nutrients. Water is the most vital nutrient and is required all the time.

Rujuta mentions the 6 rules to increase nutrient intake Page I will mention them briefly here: Six Rules to increase Nutrients intake: Rule1: Eat food that is prepared fresh.

Consume within 3 hours of cooking. No freezing for the next day as the nutrient value is diminished highly. Rule2: The smaller the number of people the food is prepared for, the better its nutrients level. Rule 3: Eat your fruits and vegetables whole instead of cutting them into pieces, because you lose vitamins from their surfaces. Rujuta, my qus here: Agreed for fruits. But Vegetables?

Rule 4: Remain loyal to your genes and eat what you have been eating since childhood. Rule 5: As much as possible eat local produce and seasonal food.


Climate, altitude, humidity, wind and soil quality influences our digestive system and foods that grows locally. Rule6: Eat with a calm state of mind.

It helps preventing conversion of food into fat. The author has successfully convinced the above points to me as a Reader. Chapter 3: What to Eat: Rethink Carbohydrates: Carbohydrates are responsible for providing our body with energy it needs for normal day to day functioning. They also help in the functioning of our brain cells and neurons apart from various other important functions like synthesizing and forming our DNA and RNA, synthesizing hormones and fatty acids such as cholesterol, generating powerful anti-oxidants and protecting our cells from damage and ageing, cleansing the body, helping in the hormones and immune functions and also regularizing bowel movement because of their fibre content.
