So get ready to welcome the fab new you!


I have two contradictory things to say about this book ~ a) it's complicated, and, b) it's very informative.

I know, that's misleading, but that's how it is. Initially, when I started reading the book, I was bored. A lot of dietician talk which wasn't making a lot of sense to me, and experience examples of film stars who are thin and fit anyway. Such books are all over on the market.

But, what stuck my fantasy was where Shonali started talking about how the food that we eat (and don't) affect our face, hair, pimples, wrinkles everything.  I never knew pimples are of so many categories and have different reasons causing them! This is where the book gets interesting.

There are a bunch of meal plans and recipes, and frankly you can follow them to the T only if you live in one of the metros.

Yet, have a read, who knows what you might pick up from Shonali's book, and it might work for your health and body!
