This Intensive Cooking Workshop Will Answer Your Questions:

Don't we need some oil to be healthy?

Of course we do. We need the best quality oil, from whole nuts. We use plenty of nuts, like coconut, badam and groundnut instead of extracted oil. Most Indian dishes are traditionally cooked this way. We will also be showing how to do a tadka without oil.

I don't want to give up sweets.

Only refined sweets are bad for us. Learn to prepare all your favourite sweets with fruits, nuts and unprocessed jaggery! They taste yummier and richer than any sweet made with refined ingredients.

 Isn't milk good? I love curds too much. 

Milk and curds from cows cause disease. Plant mylks give health. You can still eat your favorite foods. Learn how to make milk, curds and buttermilk completely from nuts & seeds! Also learn about traditional plant based mylks like Moonga Udhak & Ellu Neeru!

Here is a Story of Transformation with Meals that Heal: 

In 2013, I underwent open heart surgery. The doctors saved my life! They then put me on medications and advised me to change my lifestyle. I had no idea what that meant, until now and I want to share with you all my journey over the last 6 months

Before I begin, I must first thank my wife for supporting me wholeheartedly in following the principles of cooking as mentored by Dr. Achyuthan. All the while, I have supported her by only cutting fruits, that's all! Not even vegetables! Secondly, I thank my friend Dr. Meenakshi Bharath, who introduced me to this wonderful person; Dr. Achyuthan. 

Should I now thank Dr. Achyuthan Eswar? Why should I, you may ask.  

When I first met Dr. Achyuthan, I was 104.3 kgs; today I am 90 kgs. From 3 June 2016 to 3 December 2016, I have given Guru Dakshina of 15 kgs of my body fat. My transformation has been nothing short of amazing and the two aspects that led to it are the body and mind. I was taught SKY meditation by Prof. Krish Murali Eswar and have practiced it everyday. My day begins with chukku kaapi, a warm drink full of flavour and goodness followed by meditation and exercises. I take brisk walk after and what awaits me at home? A glass of fresh juice as prescribed by Dr. Achyuthan. I have achieved better health and a slimmer waist by eating three course meals! Yes, you read it right, everyday, I have two such meals one in the morning and one in the evening. Occasionally, I enjoy eating food at functions and repent soon after

You can see some of the results in my pictures, but what you cannot see is that my anxiety, fear, tension, anger, etc., has dropped by 75%!, My health is improving over the months, my skin glows,I'm active at all times, and life is beautiful. Instead of just dumping something in my stomach to fulfill hunger, I have started enjoying the food I eat. My health has improved and my weight has reduced by 15 kgs!

First time in my life, I realised the power of food and meditation and how they help balance our body and mind. When doctors were telling me to change my lifestyle post surgery, I thought of complicated things. Often, we associate an upgraded lifestyle with fancy clothes and sports cars, but what is truly precious is our health. When I learnt "How to be my own Doc" I am no more a patient, the quality of my life has improved and I'm enjoying every moment! 

To celebrate this, Achyuthan asked me to buy a new set of clothes, I told him will do so, once my waist size reaches 38. It has dropped from 44 to 42 and with his guidance, I'm sure I'll reach my goal! 

We are transforming as a family and at home, my wife and daughters have started eating the way I do and are experiencing the difference. The currency shortage does not bother me as I shop only in one fruit and vegetable shop, and one organic shop. This is all I need. 

Following the example of Ramakrishna Paramahamsa, which Prof. Krish posted, "Let's not preach. Let's show the world and make the world beautiful with healthy human beings around." I once again thank everyone who is taking this journey with me. Be blessed!
