RESULTS AFTER THREE WEEKS OF SERIOUS EFFORT
Reviewed in India on 22 April 2018
Though there is already 800+ reviews, so my single opinion really does not matter. But still I want to share my experience as I am so amazed by the prompt results.
I don't have any weight machine, so I can't tell you how much I have lost. But I have measuring tape and I have measured that my waist has been reduced THREE INCHES in more or less three weeks (not 1 inch per week). I didn't see much changes in 1st week. But I started feeling good within few days. I have trusted her every impractical word without doubting and implemented it.
Trust me guys, losing weight or fat is not a big deal but adopting a healthy lifestyle and discipline is a real challenge as I was extremely indiscipline. To adopt a healthy lifestyle it demands a serious and sincere effort. Once you adopt it you don't have to be bothered about weight/fat loss. It will happen naturally.
I never gave up. And today I am successful.
After going through this book I didn't follow any cases of her clients' which suits me best but I have made my own routine according to my choices and preferences. It's not that difficult. If I can then you also can. Just read the cases carefully and try to find the logic. That's it.
I start my day with a fruit. I enjoy it with a stroll on my roof under the sun. It's very pleasant as the sun is not so harsh and I complete my daily quota of Vitamin D. In my family, I don't know why everyone is afraid of ghee, oil, cheese. so, we don't use so much of ghee or oil while cooking. But as rujuta says "EAT FAT TO LOSE FAT", so I prepare my own breakfast meal loaded with ghee which I love too. Because that's the only meal where I can have my ghee peacefully. Even if I make a simple omelette, I make it with ghee instead of oil (sometimes with little ajwain, black pepper powder, few red chilli flakes and salt. thats it. isn't it very simple? and tasty too. Try it..), and from now on I never try to cook my dishes with zero oil and even low oil (ghee). Guys just throw out that olive oil or any fancy oil you have, and bring back that traditional oil your mom or grandma used to cook regular meal.
I love coconut, I knew it that it's very healthy. But everyone again is scared of that magic fruit. So now I can have my coconut guilt free and I do so. I like it more to have as whole rather than in prepared dishes. So I have my coconut (a lot) as some of my in between meals.
Now I always keep a pack of cheese slices in my refrigerator which I love and rujuta recommends also. My sister tried to tease me by taunting "Cheese diet", but I totally ignored her. One thing I strictly follow is that I totally avoid refined flour or maida in daily basis. I have reserved it for my junk food mistakes..
I am a bengali girl, so I can't live without my "macher jhol vat" and so I have not sacrificed my rice (white rice). I have it with my lunch and dinner guilt free. For breakfast I have wholewheat roti brushed with lots of ghee with sabzi cooked in ghee or any stuffed paratha brushed with ghee.
In that three weeks I have unintentionally skipped some of my in between meals, my proper dinner time or lunchtime has been missed sometimes and I also had some indulgence of junk food (chocolates, snacks, patties etc). But still I have got excellent results.
My skin is now looking fresh and glowing like never before and that too without my expensive night cream. Really, it was really expensive, and effective too. But now I don't need that.
Now, let's talk about exercise.
I don't have access to any fancy expensive gym. So I started doing surya namaskar every evening. As I have read in a book of BKS Iyengar (the foremost guru of Yoga) that our body remains very stiff in the morning, so you can't stretch it at its fullest, so it's better to do Yoga in the evening. So I do it in the evening. Though it's not written in this book but I have read this on Rujuta's blog that she recommends to fix a definite time in the day for exercise.
I started doing only one round of surya namaskar. On the first day I was not even able to make the postures correctly. But I tried my best, and believe me I was DEAD. But next day I tried again, and next day...................
Now I can perform four rounds of surya namaskar with ease.
And all of these within just THREE WEEKS. I am really impressed with myself.
Now I don't judge myself by a random digit displayed on a stupid weighing machine.
Caution: Surya Namaskar done correctly is of immense benefits. But the same surya namaskar done incorrectly can harm you a lot.
So first try to correct the postures then increase the number of rounds to be performed. And don't rush. It takes time to be perfect.
These were my experiences but I also want to tell you something.
Respect your body's limitations and overcome them. Just don't push your body, or give it a deadline.
Just trust your taste buds, follow your heart and let your body work on its own wisdom.
Love and respect your body the way it is, and your body will shower you with LOVE.
