Hello Ankur,

This link goes to the website of a colleague of mine, and fellow Structural Yoga Therapist, whose case study, and eventual book, is on the connection of yoga and peaceful weight loss. I hope this proves helpful in your search.

Mindful eating that supports and respects the vessel that is the human body.

If you start to do any kind of serious exercise, on a daily basis, especially Yoga, then your body starts to tell you what to eat, you'll no longer desire food that gives you no energy. Once you combine that with your daily exercise, weight loss will happen, you, won't need to follow any specific diets that you see advertised every where.

Diet an exercise is the easiest way to lose it and keep it off. And meditate! The less stress the easier it is to lose, IMO!

Good luck.

I have found weight loss is a by product of a yoga practice....especially if you try to follow the guidelines about not practicing with a full stomach (approximately 3 - 4 hours after a meal or 1 - 2 hours after a snack). It's been suggested that the energy that would normally be used to disperse the benefits of your yoga practice will instead go to digesting your food. And it's a bit uncomfortable to do an energetic practice with a full tummy anyway (although I suppose a restorative practice wouldn't be too bad...)

Something to think about...

"I have found weight loss is a by product of a yoga practice"

Exactly!! I lost 20-25 lbs from doing Yoga and it wasn't exactly fat. I had been an avid weight trainer before taking up Yoga. It wasn't a goal to lose weight, but because I no longer lifted and ate so much food, the byproduct was that I lost weight. Instead of focussing on eating lots of food, I eventually ate less food, less frequently and lighter, more healthier food.
