Obesity is one of the most dreaded lifestyle ailments today and is spreading like an epidemic all across the world. Ayurvedic remedies for weight loss are implemented in the lifestyle to get rid of obesity.

Owing to slavery to the taste buds and lethargic living conditions, being obese and overweight is affecting all age groups and either sex. The main problem with weight gain is that not only does it affect the confidence and mental stability of the obese person (making him easy target to mockery), overweight and obesity lays foundation of many other serious diseases. No doubt, weight loss is much sought after by one and all.

Weight Loss in Ayurvedic Dosha Types

According to Ayurveda philosophy, Kapha type of individual (having more of water and earth in their constitution) is more likely to gain weight easily. Although, the Vata types having more of air and ether, would generally be skinny and devoid of much fat. The fire types or Pitta dosha personalities who are generally gifted with proportional body weight, could be gaining weight just in case they lose their balance.

In the case of weight gain or obesity, it is believed that the Kapha dosha gets accumulated which further slows down the fat metabolism and leads to the disease of obesity. Therefore, Ayurveda believes that of the three basic dosha types, those people who have more of Kaha dosha in their system generally have a low BMR and gain weight easily. Thus, for weight loss, the Kapha types need to be more strict and careful with themselves both in the terms of diet intake and undertaking exercise routine.

Ayurvedic Analysis of Weight Gain and Obesity

Obesity or Aatisthula or Medho Roga as referred in Ayurveda text is regarded to be one among the eight ‘nindya prakruties’ (undesirable constitution) of the body.  In the Ayurvedic texts, Charaka has described; obesity is one of them and is described as ‘Medoroga’. In an Obese person, individual Medas (Fat) is excessively nourished and remaining other Dhatus (tissues) get malnourished.

Ayurvedic Medicine for Weight Loss

Some Ayurvedic medicines and herbal medicinal formulations like Trifla churan, Mandoor bhasm, Swarnmakshik bhasm, guggulu and shilajit are available in the markets and can help in weight loss. Medicinal formulations like Medhohar guggul or Triushanaadi loha are generally prescribed. These should be taken under a qualified Ayurvedic doctor’s supervision. These ayurvedic medicines would mainly help in weight loss provided other diet and lifestyle measures for weight loss are followed.

Ayurvedic Diet for Weight loss

Food items sweet in taste should be decreased in daily diet schedule and at the same time intake of diet components containing pungent, astringent and bitter tastes should be encouraged.

Great article. All the little things can add up and make a big difference. However, you are if you are struggling to lose those unwanted pounds then be to go check out the system that I personally used to lose weight watch the video here:

( http://weightlossin3weeks.com/diet-or-all )

By following all the program's advice on nutrition, and recovery. I lost 33lbs of fat. I look and feel great. Furthermore, the weight is staying off!

Lastly, losing weight takes a lot of focus, time and dedication to accomplish. I've seen so many people give up because after a few workouts they aren't getting the results they want right away. It doesn't happen.....
