Author(s): Anjum Anand
Whether you want to lose weight or find a diet that chimes with your body type to bring you optimum health, Eat right for your body type is for you. Anjum Anand believes the key to sustainable, healthy weight-loss does not lie in modern Western science or diet experts but in the Indian system of Ayurveda - the oldest and most holistic medical system on the planet. Translating as 'the science of living wisely and well', Ayurveda teaches us how to maintain optimum health and harmony both within ourselves and with nature. In this groundbreaking diet book, Anjum shows how to work out your body type, the foods you should eat (or avoid) and how to combine them into delicious recipes for every meal. Uniquely, this Ayurvedic cookbook includes recipes from East and West, as well as complete food charts stating which food are best for each body type. For anyone purely interested in healthy eating the 75 recipes are all low fat and healthy. Good eating hints and tips, a range of meal plans and advice on recommended exercise and lifestyle for each body type complete the book.
Anjum Anand is on a mission to bring Indian food up to date. Very health-conscious herself, she is constantly working to bring down the fat content of Indian food, creating lighter, fresher dishes with all the rich, spicy flavours of the subcontinent. Anjum grew up in London and has presented two successful series of BBC TV's Indian Food Made Easy and written five bestselling books, all published by Quadrille. She has lived and studied in Geneva, Paris and Madrid and worked in restaurants in New York, Los Angeles and New Delhi, but her real love is home-cooked Indian food. Anjum travels regularly to India, but lives in London with her husband and two children. She now has her own internationally stocked range of Indian sauces, chutneys and pickles, The Spice Tailor.
