Book Review: Ten Things Your Skinny Friends Don’t Tell You by Keerthi Yella
First I want to say that this book is a must-read for anyone who is overweight and has ever wished they were thinner. The book is one half an overview of the research about fat, food, and lifestyle; the second half is devoted to helping people let go of the obsession with their weight and instead focus on healthy choices. This is half scientific look at what research actually says about body weight and health, and half rough roadmap towards self-love, self-knowledge, and becoming a healthier human being.
Keerthi Yella’s enthusiasm for healthy eating habits and her robust and entertaining writing style make this book a pleasure to read! The premise of ‘Ten Things Your Skinny Friends Don’t Tell You’ is to encourage you to improve your eating habits like eating slow and in smaller portion, sweet tooth checks, eat home-made food, monitor your weight. She discusses many other factors you should consider if you want to not only lose weight, but improve your health and longevity.
One of the primary strengths of this book is that, in addition to giving both general and specific guidelines for you to follow, Keerthi Yella encourages you to continually listen to your body. There are 11 chapters filled with some popular diets studied and full of comic illustrations. Each chapter ends with reengineering strategies or tips that may help us lead better and healthy life.
I’d recommend this book if:
You have ever gone on a diet (even a “healthy eating” plan) or have ever struggled with dieting, or have ever counted a calorie, you should read this book.
You have ever looked at your body and wished you were thin or felt shame about your body weight, or feel like you need to lose weight, you should read this book.
You’re a naturally thin person who has never had to worry about food or weight, or have ever looked at someone fat and found yourself judging their weight, tried to give friends or patients advice like diet and exercise, you should read this book too.
