The best part? NO YOGA EXPERIENCE NECESSARY. On this easy, 4-week plan, you will eat, move, and think according to your natural rhythms. You’ll relax your systems rather than stressing them out, so that you won’t experience the intense hunger pangs that often come when the body is in overdrive.

The Yoga Body Diet
By Sean Mcwhinney "hyjekna" - May 5, 2010
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... read more
A Healthy Practice Made Simple
By Michelle C. Fama "Michelle F." - April 25, 2010
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.
Behind the "Slim and Sexy" hype is a solid book
By Cherrybomb - December 14, 2010
I wasn't going to read this book, based upon the "slim and sexy" claim in just four weeks. Just like claims that are too good to be true, unless you have only a few pounds to lose and you are already sexy, you aren't going to get there in four weeks. I also disagree with the back of the book that proudly reads that you'll get "a long and lean yoga body without all the work". Um, no. The yoga poses are challenging and you will sweat, so there will be work.
Though I had written off the book based on the cover (yes, a bad habit, I know), I heard good things about it so I thought I'd check it out. I'm glad I did. Yoga Body Diet gives a good grounding in Ayurvedic eating (fully explained in the book, with a quiz to help you identify your own personalized plan), as well as good strategies such as stopping snacking, no eating before bed, eating organically and seasonally.
I enjoyed the explanation of Ayurveda, the poses best suited for each dosha, good recipes... read more
