Hello Charmi,

It is time to go light on your body and cut down any food item which is making your body sluggish, the tamasik diet makes our metabolisation slow and does not allow the correct nutrients to reach our body. 

The example of tamasik diet is cheese and other milk products, gluten, rotten food items, smoking, alcohol and what it is leading to is a sedentary lifestyle. It is time to make our body energetic and go light. With the following tips, you will not only get the desired weight but also a healthy body and glowing skin.

Your body needs a lighter type of food to regain its natural process and that is how we can help you.

By following a natural way we can definitely treat the cause.

Eat:

A good amount of water is needed in the body, 5-6 litres of water is at least needed in the body, the blood is there 5-6 litres so at least that much of water is needed in the body. These toxins which come and make our immunity vulnerable to diseases need to be flushed out to shed the extra kilos.

  • Start the day with glasses of warm water, at least two.
  • Have spinach and tomato juice in your breakfast with a bowl of sprouts with one teaspoon of turmeric and rock salt. It will accelerate the body's digestion.
  • Your mid-meal around 11, should include one fruit that is rich in anti-oxidants and helps in increasing metabolisation like orange, mosumbi, berries, etc.
  • Continue with one buckwheat flour roti with any oil-free vegetable.
  • Have a glass of one apple and carrot juice with beetroot. After an hour you can munch on like 4 almonds and 3 dried apricots and 2 walnuts. This will give you healthy hair and skin with desired weight,
  • In dinner continue with one soup bowl like tomato or mix vegetables.

This will help you in detoxing, continue this diet for a month.

Exercise:

Let us start with dealing with the exercise part in a broader spectrum, exercising will not only help you in bringing back the comfort but also get a good amount of energy.

1. A brisk walk is something that you can do daily.

2. Do a run with a speed of 5-6 km in30-40 minutes in the morning and you can also choose swimming. These things will help in hastening the process of getting an ideal weight.

3. Suryanamaskar help in giving the body required stamina and strength, do 12 sets every morning.

With the help of these guidelines, you will surely be able to work on you and your exercises will be fruitful.

Meditation:

  • Practice mindful meditation.
  • Deal with your stress.
  • Allow positivity to be part of your life.

Doing a 15-minute exercise before sleep like deep breathing will help in relaxing your mind, you can use music also for relaxation. A calm mind will lead to a healthier body.

A powerful method is of visualisation, imagine yourself while relaxing to have the desired body, feel the same, and see yourself with glowing skin, shinier hair and healthy body, this will not only help you in beating the stress but also have strong self-esteem.

Sleep:

Getting 7-8 hours of sleep is very essential for the body, during sleep our body repairs itself and rejuvenates us for the whole day. All the inflammatory process will be treated well once you feel healthy.

Hopefully, these suggestions will help you.

Thank you

Hello,

Reasons for weight gain:

  • Sedentary lifestyle. 
  • Wrong eating habits.
  • Eating fatty foods, deep fried foods. 
  • Not doing sufficient physical activity. 
  • Hormonal imbalance. 
  • Stress 
  • Lack of sleep.
  • Genetic. 

 

What should be done?

Diet:

  • Have plant based natural raw food. 
  • Have fluid diet, drink freshly made fruit juices, coconut water.
  • Have salads, fresh fruits, vegetables in your diet.
  • Include sprouts, beans, nut in your diet.
  • Avoid dairy products and animal foods. 
  • Avoid fatty, deep fried, spicy, packaged and processed foods. 
  • Avoid carbonated drinks. 
  • Avoid tea and coffee. 
  • Replace white sugar with brown sugar. 
  • Avoid white flour.
  • Have whole grains like barley, millets, oats. 

 

Exercise:

  • Exercising regularly is very important to be fit.
  • Start your day with some physical activity. 
  • Do yoga and pranayam. 
  • Chakra asana, kapalbhati, trikona asana, paschimottan asana are effective in weight loss. 
  • You can play football, badminton and such outdoor games. 
  • You can also do jogging, skipping or just a simple brisk walk for 30 mins.

 

Sleep:

Not taking enough sleep for a long time is also a reason for weight gain.

Wrong sleeping pattern like not sleeping whole night and then sleeping whole day also results in weight gain. 

 

Medications: 

Sometimes being on some medicine is also a reason for obesity.  Some drugs disturb the metabolism of the body and ultimately result in weight gain and obesity. 

So, keep a check on the medicines that you take.

Weight loss is a beautiful side effect in a healthy lifestyle when the body has to deal with less digestion intensive foods as possible. Typically in a wrong lifestyle, we tend to carry excess weight in the form of toxins, excess fat that the body was not able to process or melt, excess rotting faecal wastes, traces of heavy metals etc. When we consume foods that satisfy our hunger but also keeps the body less busy digesting, body starts doing a spring cleaning. If cleaning is done as a lifestyle, then such exercises keep us healthy. And if we follow it like a diet, in no time the junk is back usually with a vengeance and more severity. This is exactly why most unnatural weight loss programmes become successful after promising a 5-10 kg loss and people don't lose anything beyond that so they tend to make the money and also keep you dissatisfied. To lose weight consistently and also to maintain health, one must understand how the body works and also maintain the lifestyle.

You may have targets, but the body has its own way of working. It won't attempt to target only weight loss based on your targets. You must focus on not only losing weight, but replacing all your fat with muscles. Looking unhealthy and fat vs looking muscular and strong are 2 different things. Like a said, weight loss is a side effect. If you attempt at only losing weight, then your approach will be faulty and you won't lose beyond the easy wins.

You can start by eating healthy, juicing a lot. Once your digestion and assimilation becomes efficient, your body will start shedding the excess.

Losing or gaining healthy weight happens when your body and mainly your gut is in a good shape to absorb nutrients or shed the excess. The solution is the same for both the cases. Whatever is the imbalance, the body decides and fixes it. High raw whole food plant-based meal is your solution. Good sleep, exposure to sun, exercises that help you gain healthy muscles.

Fats don’t come because you have nuts or avocado or coconut. Unless your body is ready to act on the food you eat, no food will help.

The more the body gets digestive rest from cooked and other wrong foods, it will heal you off your problems and then build you muscles after u work towards it with weights. You have to work on shedding fat and strengthening the muscles. There are no short cuts

  • Start drinking only fruit and veg cold-pressed juices for 10 days. Nothing else. 3-4 ltrs a day. Avoid fruit juices, drink vegetable juices and green juices, banana stem juice, tender coconut etc
  • After 10 days eating just stomach full of fruits and greens and occasional vegetables for the rest of the month and nothing else.
  • Workout in a functional gym for 1 hr daily / do 24 Surya Namaskar daily with regular breathIng.

 

You will lose the toxins that have clogged the body. To continue a healthy diet and not gain back after that, the following is a lifestyle you can follow this.

Follow this:-

Morning on empty stomach

  • Celery juice 500 ml filtered / ash gourd juice / cucumber juice / Green juice with any watery vegetable like ash gourd / cucumber / ridge gourd / bottle gourd / carrot / beet with ginger and lime filtered / tender coconut water or more pure veggie juice.

 

Afternoon from 12:-

  • A bowl of fruits - don’t mix melons and other fruits. Eat melons alone. Eat citrus alone
  • Followed by a bowl of veg salad
  • Dinner 2-3 hrs before sleep, with Gluten-free, oil-free unpolished grains or dals 30% and 70% veggies. This is optional and you can replace this with raw again and that’s best for you.
  • Please take enema for 30 days with Luke warm water and then slowly reduce the freq. this is not a substitute for daily nature call. Consult an expert as needed.
  • Include some exercises that involve moving all your parts (neck, shoulder, elbows, wrist, hip bending twisting, squats, knees, ankles ) along with the 1 hr of workout. Focus on weight training
  • See if u can go to the morning sun for sometime in a day 30 mins at least.
  • Ensure that you are asleep between 10-2 which is when the body needs deep sleep.

 

What to Avoid:-

  • Avoid refined oils, fried food, packaged ready to eat foods, dairy in any form including ghee, refined salt and sugar, gluten, refined oils, meat, eggs, fish, coffee, tea, alcohol, oils in any form.
  • Avoid mental stress by not thinking about things you cannot control. Present is inevitable. Future can be planned. Stay happy. Happiness is only inside yourself. The world around you is a better place if you learn to stay happy inside yourself. Reach us if you need more help in this area. Emotional stress can cascade the effects. Thank your body and love it.

 

Be blessed.

Hi,

Weight loss can be achieved by a holistic lifestyle change that involves the right food, physical activity, sleep and management of stress helps to gain health and achieve weight loss. Weight loss is not just calories in and calories out. It is much more complex which involves even your hormones. A Whole plant-based diet would help you get rid of unwanted fat combined with other lifestyle changes. It is important to leave dairy and dairy products, all animal foods, packed, processed, sugary and fried foods since they are all acidic for the body. The body works best in an alkaline medium. A highly acidic environment forces the body to leach calcium from the bone reserves to maintain hemostasis. Thereby making the bones brittle. Lets briefly look as to why an individual gains weight.

When we eat food it gets converted by the body to glucose. This is used by the body to carry out various functions. When there is excess food the body converts this and stores in the muscles as glycogen and if there is still excess it stores in the fat cells for later use. This fat is in the form of adipose tissue. When there is a drop in the blood sugar levels and there is no supply of food, the body releases energy from the muscles and fat. All high sugary foods, dairy and animal foods, fried and processed foods alter the ph. of the body. They create an acidic environment. Due to this, the body needs to protect itself from the toxins and thereby produce more fat cells in order to protect itself. When you switch to fruits and vegetables it helps create an alkaline ph. and thereby helps in eliminating toxins from the body.

The following lifestyle changes are recommended:

  • Include lots of raw vegetables, fruits, nuts, and seeds. They all contain essential vitamins and minerals for the normal functioning of the body. They contain fiber which would help you get rid of excess weight. Fibre gives a feeling of satiety and fullness.
  • Avoid excess of tea, coffee. This also triggers the production of cortisol. Which in turn signals the body that there is some kind of stress and danger.
  • Exposure to sunshine and proper rest and sleep are also of prime importance. They release happy hormones. Apart from this Vitamin D from the sun is essential for many functions in the body. The deficiency of Vitamin D is especially seen in overweight individuals.
  • Manage stress either by some physical activity or deep breathing. This calms the body down. This helps the body to understand that there is no urgency and it can repair and heal.
  • Adequate sleep. The body repairs and heals during sleep.
  • Apart from the above-chewing food slowly and avoid distraction from electronic gadgets while eating is equally essential.

Wishing You Good Health Always!

Thank you

Regards

हेलो,

कारण -मोटापा और शरीर का वजन बढ़ना, ऊर्जा के सेवन और ऊर्जा के उपयोग के बीच असंतुलन के कारण होता है। अधिक चर्बीयुक्त आहार का सेवन करना भी मोटापे का कारण है। कम व्यायाम करना और स्थिर जीवन-यापन मोटापे का प्रमुख कारण है।असंतुलित व्यवहार औऱ मानसिक तनाव की वजह से लोग ज्यादा भोजन करने लगते हैं, जो मोटापे का कारण बनता है। खराब हाजमा के कारण भोजन को पाचन  तंत्र ठीक प्रकार से पचा नहीं रहा है। खाया हुआ भोजन अतिरिक्त वसा में रूपांतरित हो रहा है।

आहार शैली और जीवनशैली में परिवर्तन लाना आवश्यक है।

समाधान- 1. लंबा गहरा सांस अंदर ले रुके थोड़ी देर 10 गिनने तक फिर सांस को खाली करें खाली करने के बाद 10 गिनने तक रुके फिर लंबा गहरा सांस अंदर खींचें यह प्रक्रिया एक चक्र हुआ ऐसा 10 चक्र करें एक बार में और ऐसा दिन में तीन से चार बार करें बस इस बात का ध्यान रखें कि जब आप यह प्रक्रिया कर रहे हो तो आपकी रीढ़ की हड्डी सीधी होनी चाहिए। इससे हाजमा ठीक होगा।

2. गहरे हरे रंग के पत्तों का जूस खाली पेट ले उसके 2 घंटे बाद फल का सेवन करें और उसके तीन से 3:30 घंटे बाद फिर से गाजर या चुकंदर का जूस लें ऐसा करने से शरीर पूरी तरीके से साफ हो सकेगा।

3. सूर्य की रोशनी जहां है वहां अंधेरा नहीं है उसी तरीके से जहां स्वास्थ्य है वहां रोग नहीं रह सकता सूर्य की रोशनी का हमारे आंतरिक शरीर पर बहुत ही गहरा प्रभाव पड़ता है। सूर्य की रोशनी में 5 मिनट सीधा 5 मिनट उल्टा 5 मिनट या 5 मिनट बाया लेटे सर और आपको किसी सूती कपड़े से ढक कर यह 20 से 25 मिनट सूर्य की रोशनी लेने से पाचन तंत्र दुरुस्त होता है।

4. मेरुदंड स्नान के लिए अगर टब ना हो तो एक मोटा तौलिया गीला कर लें बिना निचोरे उसको बिछा लें और अपने मेरुदंड को उस स्थान पर रखें। मेरुदंड (स्पाइन) सीधा करके बैठें। हमेशा इस बात ध्यान रखें और हफ़्ते में 3 दिन मेरुदंड का स्नान करें। ऑक्सीजन और रक्त का संचार में सुधार आता है।

जीवन शैली - 1. आकाश तत्व - एक खाने से दुसरे खाने के बीच में अंतराल (gap) रखें। फल के बाद 3 घंटे, सलाद के बाद 5 घंटे, और पके हुए खाने के बाद 12 घंटे का (gap) रखें।

2.वायु तत्व - प्राणायाम करें, आसन करें। दौड़ लगाएँ।

3.अग्नि - सूर्य की रोशनी लें।

4.जल - अलग अलग तरीक़े का स्नान करें। मेरुदंड स्नान, हिप बाथ, गीले कपड़े की पट्टी से पेट की गले और सर की 20 मिनट के लिए सेक लगाए। स्पर्श थरेपी करें। मालिश के ज़रिए भी कर सकते है। तिल के तेल से पैर के तलवे पर पर घड़ी की सीधी दिशा (clockwise) में और घड़ी की उलटी दिशा (anti clockwise)में मालिश करें। नरम हाथों से बिल्कुल भी प्रेशर नहीं दें।ऐसा करने से शरीर के सारी नसें एक्टिव हो जाती है।और शरीर में कोई भी टॉक्सिन इकट्ठा नहीं हो पाता है।

5.पृथ्वी - सुबह खीरा 1/2 भाग धनिया पत्ती (10 ग्राम) पीस लें, 100 ml पानी मिला कर पीएँ। यह juice आप कई प्रकार के ले सकते हैं। पेठे (ashguard ) का जूस लें और कुछ नहीं लेना है। नारियल पानी भी ले सकते हैं। पालक  पत्ते धो कर पीस कर 100ml पानी डाल पीएँ। दुब घास 25 ग्राम पीस कर छान कर 100 ml पानी में मिला कर पीएँ। कच्चे सब्ज़ी का जूस आपका मुख्य भोजन है। 2 घंटे बाद फल नाश्ते में लेना है। फल को चबा कर खाएँ। इसका juice ना लें। फल सूखे फल नाश्ते में लें। दोपहर के खाने में सलाद नट्स और अंकुरित अनाज के साथ  सलाद में हरे पत्तेदार सब्ज़ी को डालें और नारियल पीस कर मिलाएँ। कच्चा पपीता 50 ग्राम कद्दूकस करके डालें। कभी सीताफल ( yellow pumpkin)50 ग्राम ऐसे ही डालें। कभी सफ़ेद पेठा (ashgurd) 30 ग्राम कद्दूकस करके डालें। ऐसे ही ज़ूकीनी 50 ग्राम डालें।कद्दूकस करके डालें।कभी काजू बादाम अखरोट मूँगफली भिगोए हुए पीस कर मिलाएँ। लाल, हरा, पीला शिमला मिर्च 1/4 हिस्सा हर एक का मिलाएँ। लें। बिना नींबू और नमक के लें। स्वाद के लिए नारियल और herbs मिलाएँ। रात के खाने में इस अनुपात से खाना खाएँ 2 कटोरी सब्ज़ी के साथ 1कटोरी चावल या 1रोटी लेएक बार पका हुआ खाना रात को 7 बजे से पहले लें। यह भोजन शरीर को स्वास्थ्य प्रदान करेगा और अतिरिक्त चर्बी को कम करेगा 

6.एक नियम हमेशा याद रखें ठोस(solid) खाने को चबा कर तरल (liquid) बना कर खाएँ। तरल  को मुँह में घूँट घूँट पीएँ। खाना ज़मीन पर बैठ कर खाएँ। खाते वक़्त ना तो बात करें और ना ही TV और mobile को देखें।ठोस  भोजन के तुरंत बाद या बीच बीच में जूस या पानी ना लें। भोजन हो जाने के एक घंटे बाद तरल पदार्थ ले सकते हैं। हफ़्ते में एक दिन उपवास करें। शाम तक केवल पानी लें, प्यास लगे तो ही पीएँ। शाम 5 बजे नारियल पानी और रात 8 बजे सलाद लें।

7.उपवास के अगले दिन किसी प्राकृतिक चिकित्सक के देख रेख में टोना लें। जिससे आँत की प्रदाह को शांत किया जा सके। एनिमा किट मँगा लें। यह किट ऑनलाइन मिल जाएगा। इससे 200ml पानी गुदाद्वार से अंदर डालें और प्रेशर आने पर मल त्याग करें। ऐसा दिन में दो बार करना है अगले 21 दिनों के लिए। ये करना है ताकि शरीर में मोजुद विषाणु निष्कासित हो जाये। इसके बाद हफ़्ते में केवल एक बार लेना है उपवास के अगले दिन। टोना का फ़ायदा तभी होगा जब आहार शुद्धि करेंगे।

धन्यवाद।
