4 Essentials for Weight Loss

People can lose weight and maintain this loss by taking several achievable steps. Understanding these 4 simple daily routine can help them achieve for long term weight loss goals.

  1. Water

The process of burning calories requires an adequate supply of water in order to function efficiently; dehydration slows down the fat-burning process. Water will wash out unnecessary toxins from the body helping organs function better, toning the muscles and moisturizing the skin.

There is whole lot of misconception of how much water one should drink ! Make sure you differentiate the thirst and hunger , because most of the time we eat in between when all we need is just water .

Another important point is timing! Rather than drinking lot of water just before or after food and impairing it with digestion process it’s good to sip hot water. In between major meals one can drink water to cut hunger pangs.

Ayurveda emphasizes on Use of Warm water for weight loss
warm water is appetizing, diuretic and good in case of excess fat. It is good to drink only warm water after intake of oily food.


  1. Sleep

Sleep supports the balance in hormone levels, A good night’s sleep allows your body to resolve the physical and mental stresses of the day.

Sleep significantly affects two of the hormones in the human body that influence the appetite that is, Ghrelin enhances appetite and can lead to weight gain. Leptin represses appetite and can support weight loss. A lack of sleep disturbs the hormonal balance.

Ayurveda always suggest not to day sleep immediately after food has always tendency to put on weight and increases kapha.


  1. Balanced Diet

You know that eating healthy helps you lose weight, but did you know that it can help you lose weight more easily? Eating whole, nutritious foods in their natural form provides the fuel your organs, muscles and glands need to keep all of your body’s processes working efficiently, including your metabolism.

There are again numerous diet plans all over internet, but one should eat as per one’s body constitution and more of seasonal food so that we stay in synch with nature. Eating the food with SHADRASA (6 tastes) helps one to balance doshas and subsequently maintain weight


     4. Exercise

When we exercise, our body require more energy and our metabolism speeds up to supply it. But most of the time we are not very active, and this is the reason why we want to raise one’s metabolism. There is a huge trend interms of exercise from gym, HRX, Boxing, Pilates, weight training etc, any exercise which suits your body, makes you comfortable should be part of one’s routine.

Ayurveda suggests different hours of exercise regimen for different season. One can work out more in winter, but less in summer. Combining Yoga and walking into daily life is the best way to keep body as well as mind healthy.
