Need to lose weight? Well, a new diet book has been launched called the Don't Diet Diet Cookbook.

Written by Suman Agarwal and Tinu Shanghvi, the premise of the cook book is that all diets today involve starvation, eating disgusting food, avoiding fats, milk or carbohydrates completely; or are based on myths that certain food groups such as carbohydrates and proteins should not be mixed.

Instead this book advocates eating three tasty low-fat meals a day, containing carbohydrates, fats and proteins in each meal.

It states that avoiding fats is dangerous as it can lead to flaky skin, acne, muscle and joint problems and hormonal imbalances.

According to the authors, the average woman should never eat less than 1,200 calories a day and the average man 1,800; and people should eat every three hours.

However it is not all good news as the book advocates the com plete avoidance of cakes, pastries, cold drinks, ice cream, paneer, and fried foods such as samosas and pani puri.

But the glossy hardback book contains a range of western and Indian recipes such as Parsi Dhansak, Chana Dal Palak, and spinach and nutmeg soup , each with the number of calories and fats next to them and clear instructions.

Agarwal has a certificate in food and nutrition from Oxford University.
