Worth My Time, it's impressive it's a must buy for each n everyone, specially for a beginner like me who is lazy and struggling to lose some weight but one thing is that shilpa have focused too much on cancer cures rather than weight loss, I don't know why? But apart from that it's a great book. --By rafiya on 5 December 2015

Very good book. Talks about the benefits of local food, how to have the local herbs and spices so as to get their benefit.It reminds us of the good in the Indian diet without being preachy. it is a good read and one can easily do the things given in the book and from the stuff available in India and not the exotic fancy varieties from overseas.Though I did pick it up because of Shilpa shetty and there are inputs from her too, but it's more of luke countinho's book. --By Rags on 22 November 2015
