My one bone of contention with Ayurveda is that according to my dosha, I should be a skinny nervous little thing who struggles to gain weight. Instead I am a strong, hefty, tall-ish thing who has struggled with being overweight since conception. Any guidelines I've seeked for dealing with weight issues as a Vata have come up blank... until now!
I've discovered a web page with very reasonable Ayurvedic weight-controlling guidelines for all doshas. Lo and behold, I should be doing things differently than I originally thought -- despite being a Vata, I should be eating Kapha-pacifying foods (cooking fruits and vegetables whenever possible, though), and Vata-calming practices like yoga and massage. Starting today I will follow a new way of eating and living and keep you posted on how it's working for me.
I hope this site is helpful for anyone who's been reading my blog and who has weight issues like me : )
