Hello Zara,

We can understand ama dosha as toxins that are formed in the body as a result of incorrect diet and wrong lifestyle. 
Intermittent fasting, drinking warm water, eating foods that may increase your "jatharagni" i.e digestive fire are some of the ways to remove ama dosha.

For losing weight, lifestyle and habits have to be changed. Weight loss becomes difficult when we don't know the correct method and follow the wrong method for losing weight. The most important thing for achieving weight loss is determination. If you are determined for losing those extra pounds then you will surely achieve it.

Diet plays an important role in weight loss or weight gain. Along with the diet, exercise is also equally important. 


  • Start the day with a glass of warm water with fresh lemon juice in it. This will help to increase the metabolism of the body.
  • Have only plant-based natural diet. 
  • Have your dinner at around 7 pm and don't eat anything until 8 am of the next day morning. This is also a type of intermittent fasting which is effective in weight loss.
  • Include proteins in your diet. Have sprouts, nuts, beans and dry fruits.
  • Drink coconut water. 
  • Cook oil-free.
  • Avoid packaged, processed and oily foods. 
  • Eat fresh, seasonal and locally available fruits and vegetables. 
  • Drink freshly prepared homemade fruit juices. 
  • Drink plenty of water throughout the day to be hydrated. 


Along with the diet, exercising is also necessary for weight loss. 

  • Start the day with jogging for atleast 20min. 
  • After that do plank for about 5minutes. 
  • Then, practice yoga asanas like bhujanga asana, trikona asana, chakra asana, paschimottan asana and padahasta asana. 
  • Do suryanamaskar daily. 
  • Practice kapalbhati pranayam and anulom-vilom pranayam regularly. 


Sleeping is also essential for a healthy body. Sometimes lack if sleep also leads to weight gain. So, it is important to have good quality sleep daily. 

Hence, take proper sleep of atleast 7-8hours daily. Sleep early at night and also wake up early in the morning.
