What would you decipher from the word DIET? Losing on foods which your taste buds relish or literally starving yourself for days altogether? Let’s bust this myth. The word Diet actually means eating the right kind of food in appropriate quantities while restricting on unhealthy food.
We are on a constant lookout for a way to lose weight and eventually end up eating food in lesser quantities than required for a proper nutrition. Actor and Yoga maestro, Shilpa Shetty Kundra recently launched a book, along with nutritionist Luke Coutinho – THE GREAT INDIAN DIET in the esteemed presence of the Bollywood industry’s eminent actors Mr. Amitabh Bachchan and Anil Kapoor, to bust every big FAT MYTHS and make way for healthier living sticking to the Indian roots.
The book, as the name suggests, is all about the Indian foods and its merits. While, with a multitude of food trends, everyone keeps on trying various things to maintain a perfect body weight and stay healthy, Shilpa and Luke suggests the whole nation not to look and search far, wide and west, because India has a lot more to provide.
The book clearly mentions that every food form is according to the area you live in and hence keeping up with foreign food trends wouldn’t be as effective as the food grown locally in India. The Great Indian Diet will also open your eyes towards various food and health myths. For example, Bananas can be a source of a healthy weight loss process! Isn’t it fascinating to know since Bananas have always been associated with weight gain. Along with maintaining weight, Indian foods and spices can be a cure for diseases as huge as cancer too, thanks to the anti-oxidants present in them, which we were unaware of.
Unfurling further pages, the book covers detailed notes on different foods, diet plans and even mouth-watering recipes of chutneys, salads and many more. The pictures of Shilpa Shetty during and post pregnancy are admirable.
