This book is not meant for all. I read it, however the question remains: Was I its target audience? So clearly, I read the book and it seemed fine to me. May be actually taught me something as well, which I have to start implementing soon.

She looked super slim — and super happy — probably the best advertisement for her book! It was an outpouring, my way of dealing with my weight issues. I think I just switched that part of me off. I wrote my book at dinnertime for three-four hours every day. It helped me skip dinner. It took me nine months to finish the book. I have to get into that. But now that I am, every little bulge bothers me. Is it tough as you grow older? I know people who have been slim all their lives till Your metabolism slows down.
What is your weight right now? My immediate target is 60 by the end of the week. But my goal for this year is weight nirvana. No more fighting. I want cake. But I want it. I want not-having-cake to become an automatic choice. Anyone who is fit or thin is making these choices on a daily basis. Life is more than food. But when I deny myself food, I allow myself to shop a lot. It makes me feel good.
Will you ever eat dinner again? If I eat dinner I feel nauseous the next day. My last meal of the day is at six in the evening when I usually have a glass of skimmed milk.
You stock no biscuits, chocolates, etc at home As for my kids, well, they get enough of all this during birthday parties. Whenever anything sweet comes to the house, it is sent away immediately. So what do your kids snack on? Cheese slices, fruit, Haldiram daal, digestive biscuits.
So I have to make strict rules. The thing is, I want to teach them about what is good and bad food. I believe TV is not good for the brain or the eyes. And all advertising is lies. How is your book doing?
But the book gave me its best payback when I wrote it. Having dealt with my deepest complexes and my worst fear — my weight — I am now truly fearless.
I feel like I have come out of the closet and I have nothing to hide. So liberating. The second amazing thing is how many people connected to the book. See the reader reviews on my website: theserialdieter. They blow me away. How do you feel now that you have lost all that weight? My weight was my excuse for not doing so many things. I hid in my fat suit. Now the first consideration for every decision is not what will the food be and what will I look like doing it.
The decision is based on far more relevant and solid reasons. Having conquered my weight and lost 43 kilos I feel I can do anything. It has become a reason to attempt everything and question everything I thought impossible.
I talk about this in my book. About transformation which is not akin to ugly duckling to swan but caterpillar to butterfly. Same life but different life forms. When you are overweight you are pre-judged and not always positively.
You have to work double hard to make people want to know the real you. I find myself more me because I already made the first impression. Lastly, all my bits are in harmony. Some still not as toned as I would like but in harmony all the same! Like my body can finally keep up with my mind. It is incredible to feel your own skin finally fits! No daal. No rice. Tea time: Coffee or chai with two Marie or ragi biscuits 6 pm: Either a cold coffee or a glass of skimmed milk.
Or a salad Post 6 pm: Green tea, herbal tea. If I still feel hungry I have a piece of almond and go to bed early Through the day: I eat from a small bowl of fruit papaya, orange, green apple, gooseberries, strawberries. No bananas, mangoes, pears. Also a few nuts — three almonds, one walnut, a couple of raisins.

Book Review: Confessions of a Serial Dieter by Kalli Purie
Confessions Of Serial Dieter. Kalli Purie. Kalli Purie has struggled with her weight since childhood and has finally found a weight she is happy with. The diets featured here are structured rather like episodes in her life, full of characters, anecdotes and juicy nuggets of weight wisdom - from surya namaskars set to Bollywood beats to drastic coconut water diets, from a dark experiment with bulimia to a love affair with the self-concocted champagne diet. In this candid tell-all, Kalli looks at weight related complexes, myths and dilemmas straight in the eye and tells us not just what to do but how to do it. Kilo by kilo.
