We are great at setting goals, we are good at creating a vision, but not many of us rely on actions and behavior change to bring forth what we desire.

I usually try to avoid a topic of weight loss on my blog because I full-heatedly believe that weight loss is a side effect of kind and intelligent choices that we make in relationship to one self.

What do you think would happen if you gave up your rules around food? What if you ate what you wanted, when you wanted, as much as you wanted and exercised also only when you felt like it? Do you think you would turn into a fat immobile pumpkin? Would you be brave enough to ever see what would actually happen?
A lot of my clients and friends find Ayurveda very intuitive once they start studying it. However, applying it to daily life, especially cooking and eating can be a bit overwhelming at first. Don’t worry, it gets much easier with time!
