The Great Indian Diet
Indians, generally, are carried away by any western fad that hits the market. Food and fitness occupy the top position, when it comes to imitation of the western habits in India. The Great Indian Diet, jointly authored by Shilpa Shetty and Luke Coutinho, the famous health expert.
The main agenda, in coming out with The Great Indian Diet, was pretty straight forward. Shilpa Shetty and Luke Coutinho wanted people to know that India diet is one of the most healthy diets in the world. The Great Indian Diet can actually help the common man on street to lead a healthier life using Indian wisdom.
When it comes to the Indian diet, there are two important areas that are addressed by Shilpa Shetty and her co-author: the true knowledge about the nutritional value of Indian food and clearing the misconceptions surrounding Indian food, while inspiring people to believe good food can result in disease free and healthy life.
There are many rumors and misguided information doing rounds in the general public related to health, especially with the large scale spread of media (the fake kind) and ill-informed near and dear ones. The Great Indian Diet disposes off these rumors with quite confidence and based on years of research and experimentation.
Little pearls of wisdom in the book help bust many of the misconceptions that were always assumed to be true like, eating rajma chawal is high on calorie count or low in nutrition. In fact it is on par with a healthy serving of eggs. Shilpa Shetty also includes her detailed account of eating habits and exercise since she is one of the most looked upon celebrities in India, when it comes to fitness and health.
There are times, when even people who follow the most strict regimens give in to cravings and a little bit of laziness over regular exercise. It is very human to do that and even Shilpa Shetty has her own food fads. But to what extent these should be given in to and what foods are a strict no-no, is very reasonably laid out in The Great Indian Diet.
The Great Indian Diet is also a book which describes Shilpa Shetty’s post pregnancy routine. Most of the common public is concerned about weight issues during child birth and after it. Then, there is also the concern of child heath in these uncertain times, where good food and health is always hard to maintain.
