Book Review: Weight Loss: A Sustainable Approach by Pradeep Kumar Pandey

Weight Loss: A Sustainable Approach by Pradeep Kumar Pandey is a very realistic book on many important health topics spiraling off the author’s life experiences. However, the title of the book is nothing less than a gimmick, as it says weight loss – which is a hot word among us.

In real sense, the book is about the author’s struggle and strategies that he adopted or tried to lead a good, stress free, and healthy life, which also meant that he got rid of obese or fatty personality.

On a plus side, this book, being self-help, does not bore readers with banal stuff. It is slightly different…why? The author presented facts and stats from his tried-and-tested life. In the book you will find how the author practiced some tips and hacks that made him lead a cool life. The original experience in the book makes it stand tall from other books in the genre.

Let’s see some of the contents of the book. No doubt the book is relevant and full of insights in simple language but it is somewhat abstract. In total, there are around eleven chapters. The first chapter is about sleep-wake importance. The author lays emphasis on a good and healthy sleep pattern for a healthy lifestyle that automatically reduces excess fat from the body.

Not only this, it is the sleep that brings overall productivity aspect in our life. The coverage on sleep and wake thing is simple yet insightful. In fact, an impressive thing. Next, the author tries to explain the importance of Circadian Rhythm in our body and life. It was a new thing for many undoubtedly. However, the author should have put its simple definition for proper understanding. Well, Circadian Rhythm sets a sort of internal clock in our body based on daylight or sunlight or even the light due to electronics. It is an important thing that sets our body for sleep and wake schedule as per the light exposure.

Next, in the line are topics on insulin and food that helped the author achieved a fat free lifestyle. This book can be read as a personal journal of someone that you intend to take on. It is a short and crisp read, one can finish it in one sitting. The book is full of many take-aways if you want to lead a healthy life that is free from obesity, unproductive chores, distractions, and much more.
