Book Review: 20 Healthy Foods for Weight Loss by Srividya Bhaskara

Srividya Bhaskara is an expert in food, nutrition and weight management. Her skills and know-how on these matters is brilliant and that is evident from her latest book 20 Healthy Foods for Weight Loss. This book is not a rocket science or a complex exercise regime, it’s laced with knowledge about 20 foods that can make you lose your weight in long term with no possible side effects.

The book is well-segmented and presented in five long chapters. But before that there is a long introduction on the need of weight management and how one can keep him/herself healthy and fit, with no obesity around. The book has two sides, one is that it is way useful with its fountain of knowledge, and the second is that it is quite deep with its subject matter. For instance, when the author talked about how to measure weight gain, she takes us to the various health check-up methods too.

The focus of the book is weight loss and what food or fats contribute in doing that. She has compiled a list of such 20 great foods, according to her if one consumes those foods one will be superiorly healthy without the need of walking or running or exercise. Some of the foods from the list are green tea, apple cider vinegar, organic butter and the list goes on.

When it comes to food, the author compiled a long task of dos and donts and merits and demerits and how to prepare that food and consume. Quite extensive, in fact.

The author also lifts light from many myths related to food that are circulated by companies for their personal gains. For example, it is mentioned that grass fed cows butter is healthy than the grain feed. The book is full of takeaways, the only thing is that you need to go slow with it.

Srividya Bhaskara’s writing is simple and lucid, though at times there are many words and terms that may confound the readers but one Google search will make them understood everything. If you are ever struggling for weight loss, then this book is your savior. Even food and nutrition experts can refer the book for a vista of knowledge.
