    I picked up The Yoga Body Diet two days ago, and even just reading the first few chapters has been a tremendous help. This book is great. Before buying this book, I already did yoga at a studio but it was really interesting to see my dosha (and I found it very accurate) and to discover that the type of yoga I already did and enjoyed was the one suitable for my dosha! I also really enjoyed the list of food suitable for your dosha, I thought that was an interesting twist and it was also neat to see that a lot of the food I already enjoyed most was on it.

    The first part of the book is to slowly guide you through your four weeks. You spend a chapter looking at the total four weeks, and then there’s a chapter that follows for each week which focuses on adding new steps to your routine to get you closer to your new union of mind and body. After week one, you take a quiz to see what your main dosha (attribute, there are three of them) is and each dosha has it’s own unique chapter to illustrate your personality, pitfalls that may cause you to gain weight, what type of foods you should focus on eating as well as what type of yoga is good for your dosha. Week two focuses more on getting into yoga (whereas week one is on mindful eating and breathing), eating healthier (and for your dosha). Week three gives you harder work outs, and focuses on shrinking your dinner portions (you should eat a larger lunch, with a smaller dinner). Week four is where you continue to shrink your dinner work out even more intensely, and try to move your dinner time to an earlier time (to help burn fat and with digestion). Once you finish week four, you’re done and then you enter in maintenance mode which is meant to maintain your new sexy, slim body.

    After you finish the first 94 pages, the rest of the book includes recipes and an illustrated guide for the yoga poses highlighted in the book. I’m a bit of a recipe collector, so I’m really enjoying reading all the recipes, and I found the variations of the recipe suitable for your dosha to be a really nice bonus. The next section of this book is an illustrated guide of the poses so that if you’re new to yoga (or need a refresher), you can see what the poses look like for your work out routine. After this section, there is a sample menu for you to follow for each week.

    The only thing I wish that this book included was just some more information about the history and philosophy of yoga. I understand that the authors didn’t want to overwhelm the readers, especially people who are new to it but it would have been nice if it was more than a small little blurb. I think I also would have enjoyed if the chapters were a bit longer and went into more detail. Regardless, this book is still excellent.

    I’m excited to start my yoga body diet, and I think a lot of the advice offered in this book is a really great way to not only introduce people into yoga, but to show people who are already into yoga another level of where their practice can go. It’s one thing to practice yoga for exercise, but another to delve into the whole mind body union which this book really emphasizes. Who doesn’t want to healthy, calm, sexy, AND slim?

    As with any book claiming to give you the quintessential “Body” with a few easy steps I was skeptical. But this book illuminated some easy lifestyle changes (how the body naturally cleanses at night if you don’t indulge at night…) that I could incorporate with my yoga practice. I’ve read other books on Ayerveda and its health benefits but often felt lost and hopeless — that I would never be able to integrate its principles into my busy and always changing day to day. This book was written with clear, concise and easy to follow instructions on how to live by these principles – with a fun voice. You’ll discover so much about your current state of health and the next page presents the solutions for a better you! Yoga, health and self is a constant study and practice and this book is a refreshing voice.
