Working Out But Still Not Losing Weight? Ayurveda Explains You Why

You’ve tried different weight loss diets, gone to the gym, eaten different kinds of food, and followed every tip and trick you’ve come across, but you’re still not able to lose weight? Here are a few reasons that might give you an insight into why your weight isn't dropping the way it is supposed to.

Sleep deprivation:

According to Ayurveda, lack of sleep is the major cause of weight gain. Poor sleep slows down the body’s metabolism and makes you feel hungry. To avoid putting on weight, you should get at least 7-8 hours of restful sleep every day.


Hectic schedule, personal troubles, and work stress can be the underlying cause of your unexpected weight loss struggles. When stressed, the body releases a stress hormone called cortisol, which increases the amount of fat stored in our body.

Eating at the wrong time:

Contrary to Western tradition that lays a lot of stress on breakfast, Ayurveda believes that the largest meal of the day should be lunch. Noon is when your digestive fire (agni) is the strongest, and that’s the time of the day you should have your heaviest meal. Dinner should be very light and eaten at least 2-3 hours before you sleep. So, no more late night binges, if you really want to lose weight.

No recovery time:

Recovery and rest are just as important as your workout. The period after a workout is when your body actually burns fat. So allowing your body to rest and recover can help you lose weight. Push yourself but not too much.

Weight loss takes time and patience. Begin each day with a positive mind because fat loss happens when you stop obsessing over weight loss and focus on your overall well being.
