Losing That Extra Weight

Strategies for Successful Slimming

12 Eat a Sattvic Diet

Sattvic diet is a concept from Ayurveda and Eastern Medicine. Ayurveda suggests that when you eat, the food is converted into ojas using the digestive fire called Agni. (Please see our Ayurveda section for explanation.) An excellent, balanced diet consists of those that turn into ojas with the least effort on your body's part. This regimen of foods is called sattvic, or pure, foods.
