Confessions of a Serial Dieter - By kalli Purie A Review
Confessions of a Serial Dieter
This is one Book that almost reads like an Autobiography and a Novel rolled into one. With a lot of Drama, Melo drama, the Tragedies, the Failures, the Victories and the Sob Stories that come with Dieting is what makes the core of the story-Kalli's own Story.
Kalli in her Book demystifies the process of living a healthy, fit and fulfilling life... This Book is an inspiration as the Author herself has been struggling with issues of obesity.Her experiences and secrets from over 43 Diets and Workouts tried and tested by her are what make this book a Must Read.
The Tips and Ideas she gives are very different from the regular monotonous ones that we usually read in Books related to dieting.
Kalli frankly throws light on the problems, humiliations and physical discomforts that overweight people face. She doesn't just Preach she Practices it first and then tells you the Pros and Cons of her diet.
There are a lot of puns, one liners and her sense of humor is what gets you to read the book like a thriller. You can't just put it down.She starts by saying that the reason you need to read it
