Review

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This is a beautifully presented book with colourful glossy pages and gorgeous food photography. Just the wonderful presentation is enough to inspire you to try these healthy recipes.

The first 45 pages of the book are about the diet, the principles of eating according to Ayurveda, what your body type is (via a questionnaire) and how to eat a balanced diet according to your body type. There are then 8 pages of detox information and then the rest of the book is recipes. Most of the recipes (but not all) are illustrated with an image.

Each recipe is laid out the same: an introductory paragraph, brief information about the appropriateness of each recipe for the 3 body types, an ingredients list and instructions on how to prepare the meal. The majority of the recipes use ingredients that will be available from most supermarkets. There is an emphasis on fresh ingredients, including lots of herbs and spices. Instructions for preparing the food are concise but sufficient to complete successfully. None of the recipes are particularly complicated. The only thing I thought was missing was a "preparation time" and "cooking time" summary at the top of each recipe.

If you want to broaden the repertoire of healthy recipes then this book will definitely help with that. The book covers a variety of foods and will freshen up your cooking.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Western culture centres around processed convenience foods, which we all know are bad for us and make us fat, but we keep eating them because they're, well, convenient... This book offers you a new way of viewing food, and enjoying the feeling of being really healthy.

It identifies three body types, Vata, Pitta and Kapha, and it's very easy to relate to whichever you are. From there, you learn which foods are good or bad for your body type; certain foods are badly digested by certain body types, and can affect your general wellbeing in subtle ways that you may never have guessed could be down to your diet. You also learn small lifestyle changes which enhance the positive effects of cutting out bad foods and eating good ones, for example sitting or lying still for five minutes to boost your metabolism. This is a wonderfully illumating book which puts you back in touch with your physical health, without being preachy or patronising. It makes you want to embrace the advice it offers, because you know as you read it that this is true, sensible, good advice that will transform your health.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Anjum's fresh uptake on Ayurveda is very enlightening. There is many books on the subject but she has brought a more modern & more complete cover of the subject. It is as if she has brought the subject to a new generation; one that is more "digestible" (!) for the modern man... (forgive the pun)

I find this book is very thorough & informative on all areas of Ayurveda.
The first part of the book talks about the 3 different body types, a test to determine which one you are (although I found some of the questions unclear), a lot of advice & info about the different doshas (body types) & what is good for each (including what to eat, lifestyle, exercise etc).I find some the food qualities confusing even though she describes them one by one but there is an index at the back of the book describing each foods one by one, their qualities (e.g. astringent, pungent, salty),recommendations for each type(if they should avoid, have little of each) etc.
Of course all the above leads to the main topic, using Ayurveda to lose weight. She talks about Ayurveda & weight loss in a few pages but mainly she talks about the fact that once you recognise your body type or dosha, & then redo the test to find which dosha is out of balance & you go about "balancing" that dosha which leads to weight loss ( she tells you how you can balance that dosha).
What I liked about this approach is that it doesn't tell you to go on a "diet" but rather change the way you eat which is best for your body type. This, for me, is the best diet as everyone knows "diets" don't work in the long run.
The second part is mostly recipes which seem very appetising. For each recipe she advises which doshas should eat it, avoid it, or change certain ingredients, so you know if that recipe is good for you or not.

By metacritic TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 28 Mar. 2013
Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The book starts with the basics of Ayurveda and the body types (doshas) each of which have different rates of metabolising foods. This is what determines how some certain people eat above the average calorie intake and some overweight people seem to gain if they stop counting calories.

The book explains clearly the importance of our food habits and the science behind it based on Ayurveda. It basically says "every body is different and the treatment also should be different". Normally Understanding Ayurveda by reading some books is difficult, the book explains this principle in great detail, and helps us to understand our body and take food accordingly. The book is presented in an easy to follow style explaining the basics and science book contains some good recipe based on real science.

The author has quite clearly done thorough research and actually put some of that into practice by devising a method which she actually used and followed to help her gain significant weight loss. So its not just an expert or author preaching from up high. Lovely recipe ideas, and each shows how the dish can be changed to suit a particular body type by substituting certain foods.

Overall: A well written easy to follow and dare I say enjoyable dieting book, with sound science presented in an easy to digest and understand style. The text is backed up by gorgeous photography as well as great recipe ideas throughout. A worthy consideration if you are after a dieting guide that actually works in the real world. Whilst it wont guarantee to make you slim it will at least start you thinking with a different mind set and perhaps lead you down a road where you may lose significant weight

Pros:
Easy reading
Great photography
well organised
Great recipes

Cons:
requires a slight change in mindset
