5 Ways to Lose Weight with Ayurveda

5 Ways to Lose Weight with Ayurveda


The AYURVEDIC Way to Lose Weight “What’s the right way to lose weight?” This is a question our culture has been asking
for decades. There have been lots of answers over the years
with the help of scientific research… and when taken out of context, some of those findings
have resulted in trendy fad diets or far-out claims. While some people may assume the Ayurvedic
Diet is just more hoo-ha, modern day scientific research on the topic of healthy weight loss
has actually mirrored ancient Ayurvedic wisdom documented 5,000 years ago. In the Ayurvedic way of thinking, being overweight
is an excess of kapha dosha. Kapha what? Ok, so, kapha dosha is one of three doshas,
which are basically specific groupings of energetic qualities. Stay with me. Kapha dosha is symbolized in nature by earth
and water– and that means that kapha dosha has the same energetic qualities – heavy,
slow, stable, cold, dense, soft… these are just a few. So, Ayurveda is saying that being overweight
is due to too much of these qualities… is this starting to sound familiar? Now, the Ayurvedic way of losing weight might
feel different than what you’re used to. Currently, our culture loves fast and drastic
transformations… When we want answers, we can get them, fast,
and so we start to expect that from other things in our environment. The Ayurvedic way, and the way that science
is uncovering and suggesting is best, is not really like this… what Ayurveda and science is suggesting is
the natural way. And it’s actually quite intuitive. It’s
not focused on short-term gains. It’s a process that is sustainable over
long periods of time, not here today and gone tomorrow. We have an entire guide on the Ayurvedic Approach
to Losing Weight, so if you’re ready to dive in and you’re on the Banyan website,
just read below. If you’re tuning in on YouTube, then click
the link in description. And in case you’re wondering, there’s
an Ayurvedic way to GAIN weight. We’ve got a guide for that on our website. If you’re looking to get started right now,
then check out these 5 simple things you can do that will have a positive impact on your
weight loss progress, and of course, your overall health and well-being. 1. Practice 15 minutes of yoga every morning. You’re actually doing something more than
exercise here. You’re setting the stage for a balanced
and successful day. With morning yoga, even just 15 minutes of
it, you’ll practice tuning into your body and your goals, and this will likely carry
into your day, leading you to make better decisions that support your weight loss. 2. Eat three satisfying meals daily. This will support your metabolism, especially
if you stick to consistent meal-times. Avoid snacking and eat three balanced meals
per day. 3. Eat a kapha-pacifying diet. A kapha-pacifying diet helps to reduce and
clear away excess kapha from your body. We have tons of information on our site about
a kapha-pacifying diet, including this video that breaks it all down. Just click this link. 4. Exercise at least three days each week. As you may know, aerobic exercise is an important
part of any weight loss strategy. 5. Establish a daily routine.
We’re talking about simple, easy things you can do every day at a regularly scheduled
time. What time you wake up and when you go to bed. What time you eat. A space for all the things you want to include
in every single day. How does this help? One reason is the idea of decision fatigue–
the more you have a routine in place, the less likely you are to make a rushed decision
that might hurt your weight loss goals. Also, a daily routine simply helps to reduce
stress. So, that’s our list of 5 simple things that
will strongly support your weight loss strategy. If you commit to doing these 5 things, every
day, we are sure you will see results. Are they working for you? Tell us in the comments! And don’t forget to read our whole guide
