It emphasises the connection between food and our minds, and suggests ways to develop the right relationship with food, and avoid the vicious cycle of losing and gaining weight, through guidelines based on scientific principles backed by psychologists.
Weight loss begins by assessing what's on your mind rather than merely what's on your plate. In other words, we must first understand our relationship with food, what role it plays in our life, how we view it, and why we eat certain foods at certain times. Weight gain is a symptom rather than the problem, and hence needs to be tackled right at the source. In Eat. One of the chapters of the book pertains to willpower and busts the common myths surrounding it.
The book suggests that willpower exists in each one of us, and is a skill that can be developed or strengthened just like any other. The book goes on to explain through simple examples, how neural pathways and habits get formed in our brains and how we can apply this understanding to give up wrong eating habits, and adopt healthier eating patterns that help us achieve weight loss that can be maintained over time.
Furthermore, it helps readers design effective weight loss strategies and meal plans through the use of interesting questionnaires, comparative GI Glycaemic Index charts, a sample diet, and a cheat menu for ordering food at restaurants, and by applying principles such as positive visualisation and reinforcement, formulating the right goals, and mind control. The book includes a mini food diary for keeping a daily record of food intake.

In the fiist half of the book, Puja emphasizes on eating right stuff ie nuts, oils, etc, but in her meal plans she strictly tells to avoid nuts, sugar. You say eat this and then say BUT don't eat it. So it feels contradictory. This book has made lot of hype on food food but Flipkart Customer Mar, My experience: This book didn't add any new feathers to my preobtained knowledge.

Kudos to Pooja Makhija for such a wonderful book. Sudhindra Rao Certified Buyer Jun, The "diet plan" section appears some where towards the end of the book with dubious choices like hakka noodles and biscuits. There are diet plans for 4 calorie ranges , but there is nothing new. Rujuta's inputs def. SS Jun, Deep inside, we all know that weight loss is never or can never be a race against time.

How did the book come about? Why I wrote this book is because in my last 10 years of work experience, I have found that most people are so scared of food. They are not seeing food for its true value, but just as calories. They think food can make them fat, it can give them high cholesterol, blood pressure and diabetes. So, in a sense, I wanted to remove this fear of food among people. Of course, I also did not want to disregard a very important aspect that is overlooked by most books — mind control… what you can do or cannot do….
