New Delhi: If acclaimed nutritionist and the last word on choice of healthy eating Ishi Khosla had any hunger pang for adulation, it was satiated to surfeit at the launch of her book EATING AT WORK in India International Centre (ICC) last evening.
The book is all set to become a best seller as none other than the CEO of FSSAI (Food Safety &Standards Authority of India), the food regulator, Pawan Agarwal has written foreword for it. This is regarded as a huge endorsement in itself as the food regulator has just launched its own Eat Right India movement with fanfare. As RBI of Food as Ishi calls FSSAI, gives thumbs up, the book needs no other approval.
Mr Agarwal being present at the launch and going gaga over Ishi Khosla as a nutritionist and her book, being flaunted as a Guide to Smart Eating, says it all about the quality of the book on the carpet and its usefulness for the public. It is believed professionals all and sundry would chew this book this up for healthy eating at work as, to use the banter at the launch, spunky host Navika Kumar chews her interlocutors up as high protein diet at Times Now debate. The presence of Dr Navin Dang, Director, Dr Dangs lab in Delhi, doing food allergy tests, ex Cricketer and a patient of Ishi Khosala Murali Kartik, BJP MP Lawyer Minakshi Lekhi, Dr Arvind Singh Soin, renowned liver transplant surgeon and the pioneer in successful liver transplant et al packed the punch at the launch.
The chutzpah and pizzazz of chirpy Mala Sekhri, the vivacious media personality at the lectern, the banters, witty exchanges, quick witted repartee were one helluva of a yummy treat for audiences mostly from affluent class, of Khan market and Lutyens variety, which they savoured with glee. Samosa came up as the biggest vice in eating and a secret temptation of foodies all.
The Publisher of the book is SIMON & SCHUSTER. Nina Mehta is the co author of the book. The book is replete with case studies, food maps, charts (with both scientific and life style in formation) important diet related statistics and figures and lively illustrations. In the book, Ishi Khosla has shown how minimal life style changes can bring lifelong healthy benefits. It is said to be a unique offering for every kind of professional.
The nutritionist writer Mrs Khosla has written this book for those with regular or late night shifts, for those on the go, for those with secondary day jobs- whether you are a doctor, a model, a manager or a school teacher with complete understanding of their constraints and life style. The book is a treasure trove of easy to follow tips, interesting food knowledge, small sized capsules of advice and even recipes, and 70 of them.
