“Women should never, ever ‘standardize’ their meal size.”
The nutritionist who taught us that simply eating (pun intended) is the key to a fab body talks about women’s food and everything in between in Women and the Weight Loss Tamasha. In the book, she explains that women are hormonally vibrant, and it’s perfectly NORMAL to feel like eating more on some days and less on other days. The key is to stop at the right time. Kareena Kapoor, who has co-narrated the book with Rujuta says, “Please eat, or you are not going to lose weight is what my darling Rujuta has taught me.”
“Eating right and exercising can restore hormonal balance.”
In her audiobook The PCOD Thyroid Book, which Farah Bala narrates, Rujuta talks about taking charge of ourselves, thanking our bodies, and making peace with the fact that it’s not hormones us. “Women often tend to indulge in chaotic eating, which is forced by hormones. Food can heal and it has more power than any pill made in the lab, and it maintains good health and brings a hormonal balance,” she says. She highlights the need to include food supplements that can help in creating the right hormonal balance to relieve some stress.
