Unable to loose weight

54/y/o female has been trying different diet and lifestyle modifications but has not been able to loose weight from past 2 months. Also associated complaint of brittle nails & dry skin. She started keto diet and followed intermittent fasting for almost 1 year and loss 10 kgs. Her initial weight was 86kg with BMI 30 kg/m2 Now after 1 year she has lost 10 kg weight and current weight 76 kg but from past 2 months no matter what she follows there has been no change in weight. No h/o htn, DM, thyroid Menopause 6 months ago Appetite reduced Bowel mild on -off constipation Micturation- normal Tongue clean, not coated What to advice in such case? Can this be due to some systemic issue?



As per her current weight her BMI is 26.57, normal is always in range and varies for each individual. No systemic issue. Brittle nails and dry skin indicate deficiency, now her goal should be to maintain this weight and have balanced diet. She can replace some carbs with protein as both give same k. cal per gram. Also she can add more fibrous foods which will utilize more k. cal than they add to the body, also doing this will help her bowels.

This associated complaint arises due to lack of nutrients.Many people follow many diets in order to lose weight ,but they fail to understand this thing that taking a particular kind of food results in deficiency of many other nutrients.She should start with some fibrous food and the reduced appetite is due to that prolonged fasting or keto diet .Theres no serious underlying disease

रोगी का वजन कम करने के लिए,,, सप्ताह में दो दिन 18 घंटे तक उपवास रखें। त्रिफला चूर्ण 10 ग्राम रात को सोते समय दूध में मिलाकर नियमित रूप से सेवन कराएं। खाना खाने से पहले 300 ग्राम खीरा ककड़ी टमाटर मूली आदि का सलाद खाएं फिर खाना खा लें। मेदोहर गुगल 2 वटी सुबह शाम जल से सेवन कराएं। निश्चित रूप से लाभ होगा। योग परिक्षित है। पिछले 40 वर्ष से प्रयोग कर रहा हूं।

If the client is fit for shoshana& has No cardiac aliments then go with snehana,Swedana n' then Mrudu virechana followed by Bastikarma. If not can go with Nitya virechana  tab.Anuloma DS 0-0-2 a/f and Bastikarma. Mainly focus on the diet (Ahara, Vihara) Follow langana line of treatment Follow GURU APATARPANA CHIKITSA.

She is on Keto Diet why don't you advise her to join Gym after this Covid19 Crises and now start few basic exercises and brisk walking? It will definitely help her in reducing fat from body and she will start loosing weight within a month

panchkol churan,medohar gugal ,arogyavardhini ,gokshur gugul and punernvasav has shown good results

For Weight loss Exercise and Diet Controle are main Treatment. Avoiding Divaswap also helpful.

Go with shodhan chikitsa Brittle nail indicates nutritional deficiency..

Advise her to take small six diet daily along with exercise.
