8. Diet For Obese People

In Ayurveda, health disorders are attributed to imbalance of the pitta, vata and kapha systems of the body. According to the traditional Indian medicine system, kapha dosha is responsible for accumulation of excess fat in the body. Individuals prone to kapha dosha tend to overeat. They especially crave for sweat foods. According to Ayurveda, obesity might be treated by healing the kapha dosha. Dietary intervention might help to treat kapha dosha. The traditional Indian medicine system claims that people prone to kapha dosha have ‘low digestive fire’. Hence, they should avoid heavy meals. Instead, they should have smaller lighter meals, once in every four hours.

Diet For Obese People

They should limit consumption of sweet, salty and sour foods that require high digestive fire for digestion. Increasing intake of bitter, astringent and pungent food would promote secretion of digestive enzymes. Consuming cold beverages and foods tend to aggravate the kapha dosha. People prone to kapha dosha should not eat too slowly or too quickly. Eating at a slow pace or high pace might lead to overeating.

    I’ve been overweight for 10 years and tried so many things. Different things work for different people and I was lucky enough to find one that worked for me. I lost 18 pounds in one month without any exercise and it has been a life changer. I’m a little embarrased to post my before and after photos here but if anyone actually cares to hear what I’ve been doing then I’d be happy to help in any way. Just shoot me an email at [email protected] and I’ll show you my before and after photos, and tell you about how things are going for me with the stuff I’ve tried. I wish someone would have helped me out when I was struggling to find a solution so if I can help you then it would make my day
