Health is wealth’ goes the popular saying. Yet many people fail to incorporate these golden words in their daily lives. The author of the bestseller Don’t Lose Your mind, Lose Your Weight — Rujuta Diwekar — has come up with yet another book that addresses the physiological and psychological changes women undergo over a lifespan and the ways to tackle them.
Covering the gamut of biological, emotional, hormonal and lifestyle issues, the book advises women on how to cope with the challenges these pose from time to time. She stresses on consuming the right kind of food having optimal nutritive value. This would not only enable one to stay fit, relax and get better sleep, but also put off the manifestation of diseases like anxiety neuroses.
The book is divided into chapters, each emphasising a different aspect of a woman’s life. Beginning with puberty and adolescence and moving on to marriage, pregnancy, motherhood and menopause, this book is a useful guide for women to gain a deeper understanding of their all-round development. Issues like hypothyroidism and polycystic ovarian disease are discussed in detail, with information provided to guide women on how to look for symptoms of these disorders and combat them instead of resigning themselves to the inevitable.
The last part of the book explains the four pillars to well-being – namely nutrition, exercise, sleep and relationships – which are the ultimate keys to a long life and good health. These are explained with real-life case studies of people who have benefited from the author’s expertise and advice.
Written in a sensible conversational manner, the book is bound to find wide readership amongst all age groups. Informative, quirky and easy on the mind and wallet, ‘Women and the Weight Loss Tamasha’ is an interesting read. Its appeal lies in its revelation on how smooth the ride to fitness and health really is.
