Book reviews: 'Don't Lose your Mind, Lose Weight'
Right way to diet: An Indian Way
, Wednesday 24 November, 2010
For the Book: I liked the way Rujuta has described the Indian lifestyle. She has a very smart and easy way of explaining things, be it Peanut breaks, Yoga or Indian style toilets :) everything has a logical appeal. I followed it and it works even.
Its not that worth
Now for Mr. Vikram Seth: My guess is that he is a dietitian who has N number of degrees but couldn't make it big and is really pissed of by Rujuta's success. I don't care whether she has any degree or not. She has logical methods and it works. Worst part is that Mr Seth forgot that this is a Book review which he is writing and not about the author. Next thing he'll say is that How can she write a book when she doesn't have a degree in English Literature. My friend you don't need a degree to succeed ...you can ample examples of people who are college drop-outs and have made it big.

Its just the copy of discovery health secrets sort of so I don't think that one should waste such a big amount.
She is a quack

Rujuta is one of the many, many fitness/gym instructors who claim to be a Dietitian. She isn’t qualified to speak about diet and claims to be a nutritionist, dietitian, sports nutritionist, wt loss expert and what have you?
What a cheek! She has some audacity.
Most of the fault is with the media and also with people (like us) who follow blindly whatever the media serves them. They never check the background of the story which the media dishes out. The media said Rujuta is a `Dietitian’ and everyone believed it.
If you visit her profile on her website, you would see that she has done her BSc-Industrial Chemistry. Even if she deletes this info about her BSc (on reading my review), one has to just Google it to find it all over the net. She then CLAIMS to have done a course in nutrition. Which even if she has done, doesn’t qualify her to be a Dietitian.
As per Dietetic bodies across the world including the British Dietetic Association, to be a Dietitian, one has to have done their Bachelors in Dietetics and then a Masters in the same. Does Rujuta have these qualifications? No! So pray why are all of you reading her book? Would you read a book about architecture written by a farmer? No isn’t it? So why read a book about weight loss written by a non-dietitian?
Does she even have some work experience in the `diet’ business? (apart from the fake diet she dished to poor Kareena). NO. Refer her biodata on her website, there is NO MENTION of any work experience, in any field. Bet she will add some work exp after reading this review. A cooked work experience for sure. All of you deserve to be fooled by her. She is way smarter then all you readers put together. Ha ha.
There are highly qualified REAL (and not wannabes) Dietitians in India (ppl who have Bachelors and Masters degrees and Phds in Nutrition). These are people who have studied Nutrition for over 5-7 yrs. So pls visit them or read their books and not a book by a fitness trainer who claims to be a dietitian

About the only diet/excercise/weight loss book that is easy to follow, is scientifically sound and well written so you don't give it up mid-way. I love rujuta's mumbai-style of writing. easy, breezy read and fun to follow.
