Dr Dhurandhar's Fat-loss Diet by Dr Nikhil Dhurandhar (Book Review- 3.25*/5) !!!

1678th BLOG POST -->>

Who is not aware about the mind-blowing transformation Aamir Khan went through for his movie Dangal where he gained huge weight and then followed rigorous diet and exercising to get back into a wrestler’s shape! All of us wish to get in touch with their personal trainers and experience the same transformation as these inspirations. Fortunately, the nutritionist who helped Aamir Khan in this difficult task has written a book finally named “Fat-Loss Diet”. Nikhil Dhurandhar is very well read and educated persona in this field of nutrition and weight management and his insights are truly encouraging and breaks a lot of myth.

The way he has explained the simple concept of intake and burning out of calories is commendable. All of us have heard about keeping our calories intake in check but never got to know how to calculate the same. Mr. Nikhil Dhurandhar has given easy formulas with examples to calculate the same and given diets for each range in which your parameter gets categorized into. He has not only given a static diet chart for each classification of body type as per the weight and height range on the individual but also given substitute for each dietary element that he is asking you to consume to ensure that you do not get bored of eating the same things everyday.

The first half is basically the revelation of the diet that you need to follow to ensure that you lose fats and gain muscles along with it. The second half is more about how to go ahead with the diet irrespective of all the external factors that come in between to stop you from achieving your goal of staying tough on your diet plan. The suggestions given by the author is wonderful and something that will help you immensely in ensuring that you do not end up becoming a crazy diet follower and irritate people around you for being a stupid different. Author has also described the importance of different types of exercises which needs to be followed along with the dieting to ensure that the effect is maximum. He also gives tips on how to stay focused in case you stop seeing the kind of results you achieved in your initial aggressive days of following this healthy lifestyle.

Talking about the drawbacks of the book, I must say that the first 30-50 pages are spent by the author is a defensive mode where he is only proving why he should be considered seriously and how he does not belong in the group of those nutritionists who give false advises and lands their customer in a big trouble. He wants the readers to understand where he comes from and how much research he has gone through to reach at this stage of writing this book. He should have understood that when a person has already picked up your book, it is with some level of trust and the foreword by Aamir Khan is enough for the readers to take you seriously. Another problem that I faced was that the charts and their description/explanations were not aligned correctly on the same page. This made me turn the pages again and again to refer the table while reading its detailed derivation by the author. Another thing is that author has not talked about many options of healthy food but stayed focused only on those which he has in his limited diet plan. Author also has not added any case studies of different individuals etc. which could have made book more powerful in terms of content and references.

Overall, this book is thin with only 200 pages which you can end up reading in 4 hours with complete concentration. I will give this book 3.25 stars out of 5.


Thanks.
