Right Eating and Herbs Help You Lose Weight Naturally and Fast

Posted on: November 27th, 2010 by Rakesh Sethi 10 Comments

You will discover here how to lose weight naturally and fast using natural and less expensive remedies you can practice at home. Before discussing the usual diet & exercise for losing weight, I want to introduce the term Body Constitution. This is an important intelligence that will help you understand what are your weight gain and weight loss tendencies and work with them.

You and everyone else is put together with their own unique body constitution.  For our purpose, we need to discuss 3 different body constitution types but focus on the one that has the highest probability of gaining and trouble losing weight:

  1. One body constitution type typically light weight if gains weight can loose it quickly.
  2. The second body constitution typically medium weight, good muscles but does not gain weight easily.
  3. The third body constitution type typically large gains weight quickly in pounds but looses slowly in ounces.

The standard medical height & weight guidelines do not apply to this third body type.   However, if you fall in the third type, no worries; this in itself does not place you at higher health risk.  But because of the inherent body tendencies, you will need to be more vigilant about weight gain, especially as you get up in the years. Typical health risks for this body type are diabetes, high BP, and high Cholesterol.

How to Lose Weight Naturally and Fast Techniques?

Before starting, I want you to ask yourself at what weight you feel full of energy, vivacious, and good about yourself. This is the optimum weight for you and you should try to maintain yourself within + or – 4 pounds of this weight. Follow the do’s & don’t’s of lose weight naturally and fast guidelines that can be easily used at home.

1. Don’t’s- what to avoid?

  • Ice cold drinks with or before meal (No sodas)
  • Raw vegetables, salads etc. as a meal or in large proportions
  • Heavy fried foods and red meats (do not eat anything doesn’t come out in 24 hours or less)
  • Cheese, Sweets, ice cream, & sugary temptations
  • Alcohol (If you must small glass of wine 1-2 times a week)
  • Overeating

2. Do’s- what to eat?

  • Warm cooked foods
  • Oats, Barley, Quinoa, Basmati Rice, & Millets (No other grains)
  • Fish, Chicken in moderation, substitute legumes (rich in protein) for meat
  • All vegetables especially include Bitter Guard (Bitter Melon) 2-3 times per week. Download recipes from internet for cooking Bitter Guard. Add ginger in almost every meal to your taste.  Add pinch of red pepper to your taste, if you can tolerate.
  • Only sunflower seeds (avoid all other nuts)
  • Berries, grapefruit, pomegranate, apples
  • Use light oils like sunflower
  • Drink 2-3 cups of Ginger tea per day
  • Do mindful eating & listen to your body when full. Make the middle meal your biggest meal of the day.
  • Keep Fast once per week with only one light meal in the middle of the day

3. Yoga Postures (optional but will additionally help you lose weight naturally and fast)

Pranayama, Sun Salutation, Most forward or backward bend poses, Cobra, Downward Dog, Upward Dog, and Shoulder Stand poses.  Start slowly if you are not doing any exercises then increase frequency & intensity.  If you are doing some other form of exercise, just continue that. Do exercise 3 to 4 times per week.

4. Herbal Supplements

After dinner & lunch take 1000mg of Triphala and 1000mg of Guggulu.

Imagine in 4 short weeks you would lose weight naturally and fast, improve your health, appearance, live at your suitable weight, and cleanse your body of toxins.

NOTE:  After reaching your suitable weight, continue maintaining with taking Triphala but stop taking Guggulu.

      Depending on body constitution, you may also add suitable type of fasting periodically to detox the body and maintain weight.

    Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this site. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s challenging to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and visual appearance. I must say that you’ve done a great job with this. In addition, the blog loads extremely fast for me on Internet explorer. Superb Blog!

    I am curious why you are not in favor of raw vegetables. One of the mainstays of my diet is a large raw salad for dinner, usually with a little protein of some sort. I also find almonds to be healthy is small portions.

    • Rakesh Sethi says:

      Ayurvedic medicine designs diet and lifestyle around individual’s mind-body constitution. How raw food (large portion and what it is) will react with an individual’s mind and body in the long run is the question? Plus it depends on time of day, time of year, your age. In one-on-one consultations, I can make recommendation on when, what, and how much raw vs cooked based on these factors. So I am okay with raw selectively. Remember, one size does not fit all.
