Whether you are a career woman, housewife, student or mother, this book will address your specific weight problems and wider health issues. Forget about your weight and concentrate on fitness—and you will manage to crack that weighing scale, and more.
Most women agonize for years over the intractability of the number on the weighing scale. Despite stringent diets and indiscriminate physical training, they fail to find the Holy Grail of size zero. Advising against this myth of perfect size, this book by Sheela Nambiar, gynaecologist, obstetrician and fitness trainer, offers a fresh perspective on the problem of weight management: getting fit is about more than just losing weight.
Paying attention to specific body types and metabolisms, Dr Nambiar, who runs the Training for Life fitness studio, encourages women to understand their bodies and focus on the 4 Pillars of Fitness—Stamina, Strength, Endurance and Flexibility.
Comprising exercise routines, diet suggestions, information tables, lifestyle advice and case studies, Get Size Wise is an essential handbook for the Indian woman looking to take control of her body.


Sheela Nambiar wears many hats. In addition to her primary profession as an obstetrician and gynaecologist, she runs a fitness programme called Training for Life in Ooty and Chennai. Certified as a fitness and lifestyle consultant from the National Association of Fitness Certification (USA), she uses fitness as an extension of her medical practice to improve the quality of women’s lives and as a form of preventive care. In her spare time, Dr Nambiar volunteers at women’s and children’s organizations, where she teaches spoken English and conducts workshops. Her articles on fitness appear regularly in The Hindu. She loves to read, trek, travel and experiment with cooking. She divides her time between Ooty and Chennai.
