You’ve been trying to lose weight for a while now, and at first everything was going according to plan. A while later, however, you seemed to have hit your plateau, though you haven’t hit your goal. You cut even more calories and ramp up the cardio, but the same thing happens: a few pounds lost, and then progress comes to a complete standstill. It starts to feel like you’re dieting and exercising to maintain your weight, rather than lose pounds.
What is Ayurveda and Why Does it Say to Work Out Less?
If you haven’t heard of it before, Ayurveda is the traditional medicine of India that emphasizes balance in the body through diet, lifestyle, exercise, breathing, and cleansing. Rather than focusing on physical “detoxing” and fitness, Ayurveda maintains the mind and body are inextricably connected, and the mind has more power to heal and transform the body than physical dieting and fitness ever could.
