As we grow older, our body tends to gain more weight and it can be quite challenging to lose the unwanted fat. Ayurveda distinctly draws a difference between weight loss and weight management. According to Ayurveda a person’s individual body type (Prakruti), lifestyle, diet, age, time of day, season etc all play a major role in health and disease including weight gain. As such there is no “one-solution-fits-all.” Furthermore, Ayurveda states that one of the main causes of unwanted stubborn fat is due to low metabolism (agni) and if your metabolism is low, calorie count would be ineffective for weight loss or management. In this regard, Ayurveda teaches how obtain optimum digestion for weight maintenance.
Ayurveda, known as the “Science of Life”, is a System of Medicine developed in India thousands of years ago with keen insights into the human mind and body. It offers strategies and techniques for both prevention and treatment of various ailments including weight loss and maintenance. By understanding your bodily constitution (individual body type) and digestion based on Ayurvedic principles you will be able to assess the type of food that is suitable for your weight loss program.
