Appetite and Ayurveda

According to Ayurvedic Medicine, a combination of four different factors regulate the appetite. Two types of pitta and two types of vaata if remain balanced, keeps appetite at its best

1. Sadhaka Pitta regulates desire, emotion and feeling of fulfillment.
2 Prana Vaata governs the brain and mental activity.
3. Pachaka Pitta controls the stomach acids that break down and digest food.
4 Samaana Vaata relates to peristalsis, the movement of food through the stomach and intestines.
If any of these factors are too strong or weak, the imbalance can disrupt the appetite.

The key to weight loss is balance. When the mind, emotions, diet, digestion, metabolism and appetite are in balance, then your weight will naturally come into balance too.

Tips to keep them in balance:

1. In general, favor light, fresh foods.
2. Drink fresh juice: pomegranate and pineapple.
3. Make soup of split barley and mung beans.
4. Use turmeric and cumin in seasoning your meals.
5. A medium amount of exercise is good for Pitta constitutions.

In general, yoga postures are the ayurvedic approach to exercise.
There’s a yoga posture called Bajarasana that’s good for digestion. Basically it’s kneeling down and then sitting back on your heels. The ideal is to close the eyes and sit in this position for about 10 minutes after your main meal.

It helps balance digestion and appetite through the breakdown (Pachaka Pitta) and movement (Samana Vata) of food.
