YOUR DIET AFTER FIFTY
Description
About the Book

Your life is filled with choices. Everyday you make choices related to clothes, shoes and sometimes marriage proposals and jobs, for your sons and daughters, if not for yourself. Some seem trivial, while others are important. But apart from these, there is one choice is of food. If is not a trivial matter This choice affects not only your individual life but also the life of your spouse and sometimes the family as a whole.

This book is about the choice of food -food that is nutritious and health giving. Within its pages, you will find reliable nutrition information and sound advice, based on scientific evidence. It offers you practical ways to eat healthy in almost any situation and at every phase of life, particularly after 50. And it encourages you to enjoy the pleasures of food but, at the same time, promote your health and well-being. After all, taste is the number one reason most people choose one food over another. Most important, the flexible guidelines help you choose nutritious, flavourful foods to match your own needs, preferences and lifestyle, even as your life enters the third phase.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
My marble statue of Durga arrived today in perfect condition, it's such a beautiful statue. Thanks again for giving me a discount on it, I'm always very pleased with the items I order from you. You always have the best quality items.
