Eat Right for your Shape

Eat Right for Your Shape Cover

I’m so excited to share the happy news that my sixth cookbook in the Supercharged Food series, Eat Right for Your Shape is available for pre-order here.

Eat Right for Your Shape takes a fresh look at the ancient healing system of Ayurveda and applies it to the way we eat and live. This book has been cooked up in the Ayurvedic kitchens of Kerala, where I spent time last year studying Ayurvedic nutrition and cooking.

Originating in India, Ayurveda presents a holistic approach to feeling well and living in harmony with yourself and your surroundings. It is a union of the mind, body, senses and soul.

Through nutrition, yoga and meditation, it focuses on treating the individual as a whole rather than a specific issue or disease, so that you can achieve balance and good health, not only in your physical body, but also in your mind and spirit.

Immersing myself in Ayurveda and its philosophies inspired me write a practical based book with an emphasis on balance and self care.

In this book, I’ll show you how to apply Ayurvedic principles to your life. I cover eating habits, digestion, daily routines, yoga and meditation.

One of the starting points 
is establishing your own particular dosha or constitution to enable you to tailor the principles and recipes to suit you. There’s a comprehensive questionnaire in the book to help you do this.

Following that is a chapter on basic yoga poses and breathing exercises unique to you to help pacify your dosha or shape, and I’ve included over one hundred and twenty delicious and nourishing recipes that correct your doshic imbalance, in order to create harmony, weight management and health.

In the book I offer a wealth of practical advice to eat right for your own dosha or shape.

I believe that this is more than just a book about losing weight and eating right for your shape. It has been the hardest book I've ever written but it’s the one I’m most proud of.  

I'm hoping that it becomes a book that you can turn to at any point in your life to get in touch with your constitutional needs and understand how to bring harmony into your life through food, nutrition, mindfulness and meditation.

I want you to be able to use this book in your own kitchen and feel excited about the recipes, enjoying their special and unique feel-good curative capabilities.

The ingredients used in this book come directly from nature, and I’ve included nutritionally dense foods with potent healing properties so that you can enjoy food the healthy way.

One of the big attractions of the recipes is that they’re created with simple ingredients that are grown and picked in tune with the seasons, which makes them so full 
of flavour and undeniably satisfying. A home truth about Ayurveda is its emphasis on freshly prepared earth-based foods. Big tick!

Whatever size you are or desire to be, the recipes and principles in Eat Right for Your Shape will help you to bring your body into balance so that you’ll become the size and shape you were always meant to be.

When you learn and implement achievable and simple practices and embrace nutrition, based on Mother Nature, you’re more in tune with your uniqueness and that is where you’ll find true contentment, health and happiness.

The book embraces guiding principles rather than strict rules. This isn’t a restrictive fad diet like so many others endorsed in the Western world as a result of our reliance on processed foods and changing food systems. It’s a balanced and considered approach to lifelong health, one that will give you complete control over the interplay of your bodily systems to keep your true self feeling balanced, healthy and calm.

I hope you’ll jump on board this adventure with me and find balance and happiness in your life.

My mantra; ‘following your own path will serve you greatly when adopting Ayurvedic principles, so let go of comparing yourself to others and make your own way to your preferred weight and maximum health’.

As a special gift to you, when you preorder Eat Right for Your Shape now you’ll receive my Renewable Table eBook FREE.

    What do you advice for someone who has cancer.

    • lee says:

      Hi Mary, without knowing a full medical history to is difficult for me to give advice and I am not a doctor although having said that supplementing medication with a good diet can help the side effects of the medication that the person would be taking but it needs to be done in consultation with the doctor. Also in regards to Ayurveda there are fantastic Ayurvedic practitioners that you can consult with as well. Lee

    Hi Lee, I feel compelled to let you know how much I’m enjoying your new book. Interestingly I’m naturally drawn to the foods you recommend for my constitution. As with all your books I’m finding a few recipe gems that will become regular favourites. Thank you for producing such a beautiful collection of recipes and information 🙂

    Hi Lee

    I saw your book in the health food store and I was wondering if it is suitable for people who wish to be gluten free?

    Thanks

    Michele

    Hi Lee,

    I love your book- thank you! So I am a mixture of K and P and I am finding it hard to decide on the recipes and so on. One recipe might have a V, P and another one with have a V, K but not the other… I am probably making it harder for myself.
    Thank you in advance for your help and reply.

      It’s best to see how you are feeling that day and follow that for example you may be feeling more pitta so have the pitta recipes and one day more kapha so have those. I hope that makes sense 🙂 Lee

    Hi Lee,

    I’m really enjoying your book. It’s beautifully presented and all the background info is really interesting. I am 100% Vata!

    However, I noticed that for Vata types there are only two legumes listed, but this is contradicted in the recipes with ingredients including mung beans and chickpeas. Please could you confirm which legumes and pulses are preferable for Vata, I eat vegetarian dishes most of the time so would like to know where to get my proteins from (other than tofu!)

    Thanks,

    Emma

    • lee says:

      i think you might be referring to the kichari where it is a mono diet and you can try this as a vata and see how you go. But I don;t have vata chickpea recipes.

      • Emma says:

        Your Vata and Kapha Spinach Pancakes includes chickpea hummus as part of the recipe.

        I have really enjoyed the Kitchari recipe, so I will add mung beans to my list.

    Hi Lee, I know i am a bit slow but I just borrowed your book from the library and wanted to say thank you for an easy to understand Ayurveda book. I am hoping to get my health back on track and this all makes so much sense. I love the yoga poses to do at home, are there any other ideas for incorporating more exercise
    for almost 50 pitta-kapha? x

    • Lee says:

      Hi Fiona, so glad you are finding the book helpful. Some of the exercises you could do are walking and light weights at home 🙂 Lee
