Book Review:Confessions Of A Serial Dieter By Kalli Purie

I owe my weight loss journey which began two years back to Kalli Purie, the writer of the book “Confessions of a Serial Dieter”. Frankly speaking I had never heard of Kalli Purie but yes I used to watch her other sibling Koel Purie’s talk show “On the couch with Koel Purie” and of course who doesn’t know their father Aroon Purie. Without letting anyone know I ordered this book online and read it lying comfortably on my bed. (Which made me feel guilty of lying down and getting fat.)  🙂 Here I think it would be great to post a Book Review:Confessions Of A Serial Dieter by Kalli Purie for your advantage.

This 225 pages long book made me come out openly in front of my daughter and ask her after showing the book “Can I too lose weight like this woman?” My daughter who had never ever judged me for anything replied, “If she can do it, you can also do it. She was 103 kg and you are just 98.” Thus at that point began my weight loss journey from 98 kg to 67 kg.

Why should you read Confessions Of A Serial Dieter By Kalli Purie ?

Book Review:Confessions Of A Serial Dieter By Kalli Purie

If you want an encyclopedia of all sorts of diet plans (43diets) which are featured here in the form of episodes in her life with interesting anecdotes and wisdom gained, you must read it. This is every FAT woman’s Bible in which Kalli discusses weight related complexes, myths and dilemmas and suggests what to do and how to do it. This book talks about lifestyle changes, choices and decisions. This book makes people think about themselves and face the harsh reality of being OBESE.

You must read this book if you are looking for some inspiration to take that first step towards a healthy you. It can be any ones story and undoubtedly a very emotional one. No sob story but it surely creates that lump in your throat and makes you mumble—“I too should do it… I can do it.”

This book is juicy entertainment hitting you hard on those fatty bums of yours and making you feel ashamed of yourself for not kicking them hard enough to get moving.  If Kalli can lose weight and run a marathon why the hell can’t we go and do a power walk outside!!!

This book is for all those people who are living in denial that they are fat, giving unreasonable reasons for putting on weight.

Why I loved this book because it has all sorts of meal plans and tips to get moving towards a fitter you. What she ate at which weight and then lost or gained how much more, it’s all accounted there. If you had not been able to be courageous enough to take that plunge for fighting your fat then you must read this book. It will make things easier for you.

Trust me 🙂


  1. Weightloss is an on going process and Kalli Purie proves that through this book of hers but I was actually saddened to see her gaining back the weight in the recent ‘India Conclave’…. I wish I could convey this to her ,” Kalli, please don’t do that to yourself. You were my inspiration — don;t let me down.” 🙁

  2. Kanan, you are truly an inspiration for me. Thanks to you, i have not missed my workout…I am enjoying “walk at home videos”. I regularly do the 3 mile and on week-ends do the 4 mile workouts. After my son’s exams plan to do the 4 mile and 3 mile on alternate days. Now i need to just learn to zip my mouth…any ideas as to how i can do that and have a lighter dinner…i can see the difference in 15 days of doing the workout..i am feeling lighter and healthy..only hope the weighing scale moves down too..

  3. Hi Regina, your comments are motivation for me too and keeps me accountable. 🙂 Once you know the steps and moves try doing then on fast bollywood songs too its fun. If you eat eggs you can have boiled eggs or egg veggies (posted recipe earlier) for dinner. eggs keep you full then before sleeping can have a cup of milk. you can have saute veggies with a bowl of curd. Curd too keeps you full. 🙂 I hope it was helpful.

  4. Hi Mitha, You must read this book. its so much fun and a good reality check. Moreover if you want to make your own diet plan, it can be of great help. And yes, I love you too Mitha, your affection keeps me accountable and going strong.
