Women & The Weight Loss Tamasha-Book review

Rujuta Diwekar is the name behind the successful fitness stories of Bollywood celebs. She came much into the limelight when she was able to bring Kareena down to a size zero figure for her film Tashan. I am here to review the very famous book ‘Women & The Weight Loss Tamasha’ authored by Rujuta Diwekar.

This book ‘Women & The Weight Loss Tamasha’ was released in the year 2011 and has been welcomed with open arms in the fitness circles.

Her writing style is clear, unique, crisp and quite witty. In this book she says that if you really want to lose weight you should start eating and stop hating yourself. This ideology of hers is a welcome change for people who starve the whole day in the name of dieting.

She has stressed that one should eat the right thing at the right time of the day. To do this she has made four principles and they are as follows:

  1. You should eat something within the first 10-15 minutes of waking up.
  2. You should eat every 2 hours.
  3. Try to eat more when you are active and eat less when you are not.
  4. Finish the last meal of the day at least two hours before going to bed.

Rujuta has explained how a woman goes through bodily changes during different phases that include puberty, marriage, pregnancy and menopause.

Several myths related to food, workouts and hormones have been busted by her. She has explained in a detailed manner that PCOD, menopause, pregnancy, thyroid trouble or diabetes is not an excuse for being overweight and deprived of nutrition.

She talks about societal pressures that force a woman to be thin, tall and fair. It does not matter whether you are a teenager, would be bride, married woman or a mother you are always told by the society that getting thin is the only way of looking good!!

Rujuta says that you should lose weight for your own happiness and not because of pressure from your husband or in-laws.

To get slim women torture their body by trying out different diets and literally starve themselves. The body is harmed so much that what was designed to perform tasks efficiently is reduced to a mere show piece. It is a common complaint that the quality of food these days is not as good as it used to be in the past. Rujuta straight away dismisses this because our food may be having pesticides but it cannot be termed the only reason for declining health.

While talking about cooking, she says that when food is overcooked or eaten at the wrong time it does nothing for one’s health. It just puts on dead weight. Rujuta makes it clear that low fat or low calorie stuff is no good. The important things are nutrients and not calories.

The book helps in getting you in shape without cutting down on most foods. She says that eating simple home-cooked meals can help in weight loss and also a flatter stomach! She has mentioned about the right kinds of exercises and certain good habits (like sleeping on time) that should be a part of a healthy lifestyle.

She has also focused upon the never-before- thought fact that having a stable relationship is essential to maintain a good body. She has proved the fact with evidence.

Unlike the previous book ‘Don’t Lose Your Mind, Lose your Weight, this book focuses entirely on women.

It is all about understanding your body and giving yourself importance. A must read for Indian women who always care for their family first. It is time to change that attitude. I totally enjoyed reading this book and it was quite informative.
