Keep Eating Keep Losing: Weight-Loss Secrets isn’t just another book on healthy living but an absolute game-changer for all who believe in a healthy lifestyle. It has all the answers to your weight-loss queries and more. I connected with the book instantly as the techniques introduced by Claudia guarantee that those unwanted kilos stay off permanently. For everyone who feels weight-loss is a tough challenge, let Claudia make the journey simple and fun for you. With the right tips and guidelines, weight-loss can be an easy task.
I can proudly say that food is my first love; I’m sure it’s yours too. I never followed a diet that would make me cranky and unhappy. I believe I work too hard to deprive myself of the thing I love the most—food! Keep Eating, Keep Losing is a happy revelation. She urges her readers to banish the word ‘diet’ from their lexicon. I was particularly amazed by her take on the rules of dieting that are often hard to follow. For her, there are no such ‘rules’. Food is a ‘boon and a blessing,’ she affirms, presenting a whole new perspective on weight-loss. She does not recommend staying away from food; she tells you to be passionate about your choice of food. It is easy to indulge in junk food and fried dishes, but going the organic way is not difficult. Keep Eating, Keep Losing is about identifying the advantages of healthy eating and healthy living. It is essential for us to feel fit and healthy mentally, emotionally and spiritually, and that’s what Claudia sets out to do with this book. Beautifully structured, it is peppered with interesting nuggets on health, exercise, nutrition and diet.
The tenor is not didactic and it certainly isn’t a book that will teach you how to lose 10 kilos in 10 days. Chasing unrealistic goals is a waste of time and Claudia has gently dispelled the myths about the ‘wonders’ of starvation. Starving yourself is a bigger sin than giving in to your cravings. Keep Eating, Keep Losing is about recognising the healing properties of food. Eating is not an unhealthy exercise; in fact, unhealthy eating poses serious health problems. One such health hazard that we actors or working people fall prey to, thanks to our busy schedules, frequent travel and stress, is eating at erratic hours. It is, after all, not the caloric content, but the quality of food we eat that ensures our overall well-being.
It was a combination of diet and exercise that got me into my present shape. I don’t know how many kilos I lost; I don’t get on the weighing scale. As long as I am feeling fit and I can feel myself toning up, looking thinner, the scale doesn’t really matter. Today, I’m a weight-loss inspiration for many; you can become one too. With Keep Eating, Keep Losing, discover the joys of eating and losing weight the healthy way!
Lots of love
