Ayurveda for Weight Loss
Let me begin with an important note from Bhaishajya Ratnavali (an ancient Indian Classic on Ayurvedic Medicines and formulations):
“Persons indulging in physical exercise, worry, long walk, intake of honey, remaining awake at night, and taking barley as food get rid of obesity.”
It’s an antidote for almost everything that ails us.
At a minimum, take time everyday to get out and walk.
Though Bhaishajya Ratnavali mentions staying awake at night, the Vata vridhi (increase in Vata) that occurs as a result may cause other problems.
The best way to reduce and remain healthy is a proper diet and exercise.
Add Ayurvedic super foods:
Evening meals should be vegetarian, hot, light and soupy, including:
A typical day’s meals looks like this:
It is important to know the fact that undigested food gets converted in to toxins and get stored in fat cells.
By sipping hot water through out the day, you help cleanse the digestive tract and entire body of blockages and impurities.
Hot water improves digestion and assimilation of food and helps prevent the body from becoming toxic and clogged.
It is also a great aid in reducing food cravings in between meals.
Boil water for 10 minutes and keep in a thermos and sip through out the day.
Another option, instead of sipping hot water there is an Ayurvedic water which you can sip throughout the day:
Medicated Water Boil
Triphala – this magic combination of three fruits can be used internally as well as externally for weight loss.
Internally, Triphala powder can be consumed with warm water or honey.
Externally Triphala powder massage (Udwarthanam) can be done. Concentrate more on your arms, legs and abdomen
Ayurveda advises the intake of shad rasas (6 tastes). These tastes include sweet, sour, salty, pungent, bitter and astringent. Include this in your diet as curry powder.
