Book Review: The Hacker's Diet

The Hacker's Diet: How to Lose Weight and Hair Through Stress and Poor NutritionThe Hacker's Diet: How to Lose Weight and Hair Through Stress and Poor Nutrition by John Walker
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is the first health book that I could not put down. This is the book that is helping me to manage my weight and my health. So, it is a life-saving book for me.

I was worried about my weight gain, and my lack of time to do exercises. I have 2 kids now and have an hour commute to my work. Both of these leave me with very less time to do exercises regularly, and I was constantly feeling worried about weight gain.

This book helped to break the problem into two.

a) Managing Weight.
b) Doing Exercises.

For a), I completely understood how this can be controlled by paying attention to the Calorie intake. That' it. I adjusted my calories and I went back to -3KG within 3 weeks. I have goal to go -13 kgs further so that I can maintain my weight at a desirable number. I am into managing of my weight now.

Once that is done, I know the need and utility value for exercises and I will able to make time for it to live for longer so that I could continue doing whatever I like.

Rarely, self-help books have proved valuable to me. This the 2nd self-help book that I can say that, it has proved valuable to me and the concepts taught will remain with me for the rest of my life.

Thank you, John Walker.
