How To Reduce Belly Fat With Ayurveda
Foods such as sweets, sweetened drinks, carbohydrates and oil rich foods increase kapha and medha (body fat) and must be avoided, carbohydrates when transformed into sugar in the body tend settle on the fat-friendly areas of the body (abdomen and thighs).
Reduce Rice in Diet
Include more wheat products in your diet than rice products. Use green gram and horse gram to reduce kapha and medha.
Drink a glass of warm water immediately after waking up in the morning. This is highly effective in reducing belly fat. Taking one glass of water every hour from the time you get up can also aid in burning of fat around the belly. You may also add one spoon of triphala chooran to water, boil it and take it with honey after every meal to reduce belly fat.
Reduce the intake of salt and milk-based products, such as ice-creams and butter as these are high on sugar.
Ayurvedic practitioners suggest that one consume two fruits in the morning and one fruit every evening to reduce belly fat.
Avoid Afternoon Siesta
Avoid the afternoon siesta to prevent the slowing of basal metabolic rate and burn more calories.
Exercises such as swimming, brisk walking and jogging also contribute to weight loss along with the above mentioned ayurvedic remedies to reduce belly fat.
Abstain from Non-vegetarian Food
Although, ayurveda does not proscribe meat from ones diet, it recommends that one avoid non-vegetarian food as much as possible.
Add Ground Spices when Cooking
Use a lot of cinnamon, ginger and pepper in your cooking. These spices improve insulin resistance and reduce spurting levels of sugar in the bloodstream.
