By ayurvedic upchar - 7:37:00 PM

The Ayurvedic medicine , better known as the "science of life" indicates that the reasons of overweight , obesity and various disorders and diseases, are due to eat foods that are not in harmony with our body.


Therefore, this branch of medicine states that patients who suffer from obesity must learn to eat properly, to eat according to the way their body works. Ingesting products, according to the characteristics of our metabolism, will allow you to be a healthy and thin person.

The problem is not that people eat too much or too less, but the selection of food that goes through a matter of choosing the types of food with which they eat. There are a number of foods that are directly related to certain body types. By not being able to make the two things coincide harmonically, is the root of the problem.

Body types

In Ayurveda three types of doshas (body morphology) are considered: vata, pitta and kapha. In this sense, if people consume food with respect to their body type, there would be no need to worry about overweight and / or obesity.

Vata Profile

The basic theme of the Vata type is variability. Vata people are unpredictable and less stereotyped than Pittas or Kaphas.

Vata: The Ayurveda recommends that people of Vata (air) and type must consume more cooked vegetables, you avoid fried, spicy foods and raw fruits

Pitta: They are the people of fire and those who have a body with these characteristics should stay away from acidic foods, excessively spicy and fried foods
