According to Ayurveda, belly fat can cause an increase in the kapha dosha. Belly fat can be reduced by eating a healthy diet, following an active lifestyle and avoiding afternoon siestas. This deposit of excess fat around the abdomen can be reduced if the below-mentioned tips are employed.
Take Care Of The Following
Foods such as sweets, sweetened drinks, carbohydrate and oil rich foods increase kapha and Medha (body fat) and therefore, 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.
Minimize Salt Intake
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.
Take 15 ml of varadi, a tonic and mix it with 60 ml boiled and cooled water. Add honey and have a spoonful every morning and evening. Rest for 15 minutes after taking the tonic.
Grind horse gram to a fine powder. Add it to heated sour buttermilk and apply this paste over the belly and massage vigorously in upward strokes. Horse gram is highly effective in reducing body fat. Bath in warm water for half an hour after the massage.
