Body Balance Diet Plan, The: Stop Cravings, Lose Weight and Energize Your Body with the Science of Ayurveda
'Emine shows us how small changes can make huge differences to the way we look and feel.'
Catherine Turner, former Easy Living Beauty & Health Director, Get the Gloss columnist and yoga teacher
Fast and lasting weight loss following the principles of Ayurveda, India's oldest and most effective approach to wellbeing. Health expert and sceptic Emine Ali Rushton was converted to an Ayurvedic dietary approach during pregnancy, when she discovered how Ayurveda acutely tunes into and rebalances the body for the better. Ayurveda teaches that we each have a dosha - a basic body type that defines our personality and physical wellbeing, from the foods we crave to those that spark allergies and increase weight gain. After the birth of her first child, the author experienced the incredibly fast and effective weight-loss results of a dosha-related diet for herself, and has been a convert ever since.
This honest and straightforward book is for everyone who has experienced the misery of yo-yo dieting. It explains Ayurveda in clear and simple language, catering to those who have never encountered the approach before. After determining your dosha type, it teaches how to eat for your own dosha, to promote speedy weight loss and make your body feel light, vital, energized and beautiful again. There is a simple 7-day diet plan and 30 seasonal recipes using supermarket ingredients. This is the first book to combine the Ayurvedic mindset with wisdom about seasonality and homeopathy. Includes expert advice from leading nutritionist Eve Kalinik, seasonality expert Annee de Mamiel and the founder of The Organic Pharmacy, Margo Marrone.
