Here’s a review I did on this book at

She explains why the body gains weight through all these stages and what we do wrong to encourage the weight gain and sluggishness, everything from indulging in needless snacking to getting too little sleep.

    I just got her 1st book and am looking forward to get some gyaan on weight loss and then maintaining it. From what i’ve read so far she is saying almost everything that my nutrionist told me. My nutrionist doesn’t make me feel like i’m dieting – i’m just trying to eat right and at the right time 🙂
