Ayurveda is an ancient system of health care and well-being that has endured in India for over 500 years and it has now made its way across the oceans into Western lifestyles and is now considered as the most effective weight loss system in modern times.
If you have tried every diet regimen that has been advertised in the past decade without any significant results to speak of or to show for, now is the perfect time for you to use a method that has been proven all throughout history to be effective in shedding unwanted weight AND keeping the mind, body and spirit healthy, happy and at peace.
Most fad diets require you to forego meals or food altogether which can be disastrous for your help. If you have tried these diets before, you may have noticed that you often find yourself thinking about the food that you’re not allowed to eat more frequently than ever. The cravings often cause you to binge eat the food that you are trying to avoid and guess what happens? Simply put, you DON’T lose weight.
So what’s the difference between Ayurveda and these fad diets? For one, Ayurveda is not a fad. It is still being practiced in parts of India and Sri Lanka today, five centuries after it was first used. It is not a diet regimen where you will be required to starve and deprive yourself in order to reach your target weight. In fact, in Ayurveda, all food is categorized according to its taste and everyone, no matter what their body type is recommended to include all six taste groups in every meal.
The body is made up of three bodily humours or Doshas. The Vata, Pitta and Kapha Doshas are present in every living, breathing body though one or two may be more dominant. When the Doshas become imbalanced, we start feeling the effects mentally and physically and being overweight is one of the clearest signs of a Dosha imbalance. To address unwanted weight gain, you first need to address the imbalance within yourself and you can learn how in The Ayurvedic Weight Loss Diet.
The first thing you need to do in The Ayurvedic Weight Loss Diet is to discover your Dosha. Inside this book, you will find 20 questions that will ask you about your habits, reactions and basic physical traits. In answering these questions, you will be able to get an idea of the Dosha (or Doshas) that dominate you. You will also see comprehensive information and details about each Dosha so that you’ll be able to learn more about yourself and the factors that may cause an imbalance in your system.
After you are introduced to your Dosha, you will learn more about the basic Ayurvedic concepts of the Six Tastes and the Ayurvedic spices. Food is an important component in Ayurveda and the Indian culture in general and in this weight loss technique, eating the right food as determined by your Dosha is essential in successfully reaching your target weight.
The Six Tastes basically categorize all food according to what they taste like. For example, though mangoes and cranberries are both fruits, they belong to different food groups because they taste different. Mangoes belong to the sweet and sometimes sour taste group while cranberries belong to the astringent taste group. In the book you will know more about the best taste groups for you to eat to maintain a proper Dosha balance.
Though your Dosha will have taste groups that are good for balance and others that can aggravate your Dosha, you are recommended to include all six taste groups in every meal. How is that possible? You will learn about proper portioning and taste combinations in The Ayurvedic Weight Loss Diet book. What this means for you and your diet is that you will no longer suffer from potentially crippling food cravings because you will be eating a full, flavorful meal at least three times a day.
In Ayurveda, proper portioning is key to eating well aside from including all six tastes in your meals. Each body type has a different speed of digestion, something that other diet regimens do not take into account
