Lose weight quickly using these Ayurveda tips and you will thank us later.
Have Your Meal On Time
During the daytime is when you have your biggest meal. This is because the liver digests your food in the middle of the night and if you eat and drink tons of food at night then it will be overloaded. You should have your last meal of the day before the sun goes down. The meals should be consumed slowly without any distractions. When you don't eat as much at night, you'll be shocked by how much your body just drops weight.
Drink a big glass of warm water with organic lemon in it upon waking to stimulate the bowels. This boosts the entire digestive system and gives you a fresh start to your day.
Exercising enough to break a sweat is crucial as a daily morning practice for healthy weight loss. Take out at least 45-60 minutes, but even 30 will do.
Find five to 10—or more—minutes of peace and relaxation in the morning. Mind/body practices like yoga, meditation, are important. This helps to alleviate stress, one of the main causes of weight gain. This habit also helps better decision-makers as our day proceeds.
3 Meal Policy
Eat three meals a day, with no snacking. Food is a fast-burning fuel, and when your body is given a constant fuel line, it forgets how to burn fat. Have breakfast between7:30 and 9:00 am. Have lunch between 11:00 am and 2:00 pm. Have dinner, which should be your smallest meal, between 5:30 pm and 8:00 pm.
Eat With Season
Through the summer season, binge on high-carbohydrate fruits and fresh vegetables to keep us cool and energized. In the fall and winter, you should treat yourself to root vegetables, stored nuts, seeds and fruits, heavier meats and cheeses, and stored grains to insulate us from the cold. In the spring, there are so many berries, green leafy vegetables, and sprouts to cleanse us from the heavy and acidic winter diet. When we eat as much organic and local food as possible, our bodies naturally digest and assimilate nutrients.
Incorporate All Six Tastes
In Ayurveda, there are six tastes: sweet, sour, salty, pungent, bitter, and astringent. Incorporate all into your daily diet. Sweet, sour and salty tastes are anabolic, or building, in nature and need the pungent, bitter, and astringent tastes, which are catabolic, or burning in nature, to balance them out. Remember that too much of anything is bad.
Walk After Meals
Going for short walks after each meal is very important as it stimulates peristalsis and digestion. It’s most important to go for a walk after lunch, preferably 10 to 20 minutes at a moderate pace. When you want to lie down after that, do so on your left side after walking for 10 minutes to further aid in digestion.

Rise & Sleep With Sun
Go to bed with the sun, and rise with the sun to create a major hormone-balancing effect. The screens that we stare at late at night keeps us awake and wired after our body naturally wants to slow down. Two hours before bed, start to limit your screen time. Go to bed before 10:00 pm, when we get our second wind. You have to sleep properly for seven to nine hours as it gives the body time to detoxify and reset for the next day.
