As in many cultures, food plays an important role in the lives of the Desi people. Food is a great source of comfort, and it brings back many memories from the homeland. But this same food may be at the root of health problems from which many South Asian people suffer. In Desi Diet and Health Tips, authors Ali Noor and Fazil Zafar offer a simple and easy-to-use guide to help the Desi population lose weight for the long-term, increase their overall health and fitness, and look and feel better without obsessing over calories. It includes menus, recipes, and shopping lists, as well as recommendations for on-the-go snacks, vitamins and supplements, and better sleeping habits. With Desi Diet and Health Tips, youll still be able to enjoy your roti and parathajust without all that ghee. Youll even get to eat your kaati rolls and vada sambar, hyderabadi chicken biriyani, or tandori shrimp. Noor and Zafar place the focus on cooking the foods you love with healthier methods, reducing portion sizes and eating more often, and even getting out there and doing some exercise to increase your overall health and well-being.
