Unhealthy eating habits, sedentary lifestyle, genetics are major factors in the development of obesity. Obesity can lead to a number of diseases.
The CoolSlim Plan is based on the ancient Indian science of Ayurveda. The theory is each of us is made of 5 elements - water, earth, air, fire, and space. We are all distinct individuals because we all have varying amounts of these 5 elements.
These 5 elements make three energies -Vata energy or dosha, Pitta energy or dosha, and Kapha energy or dosha. A healthy body has these in balance. When there is an imbalance in these, the body is in dis (ease) and disease occurs. Kapha energy, when imbalanced, is responsible for obesity.
Keeping the amount of Kapha foods consumed is vital in trying to lose weight or in weight management.
Ayurvedic authors and lead researchers in the UK, Ravi Bhanot, and Sushma Bhanot coined these Kapha or K Food food values using relative arbitrary numbers for each food. Food in each food category has been analysed.
The K value of foods has been allotting K points based on how easy it is to digest, process, and eliminate it in the body.
High K value foods increase weight as they make the digestive fire weaker, induce toxins, which block the channels in the body, slow down the metabolism, and are harder to eliminate from the body.
The advantage of K values to calories is that it gives more information, not only on the level of energy it will produce, but also what effects it can have after digestion.
100g red meat and 100g white meat may both be the same calories but the K value of red meat is more than white meat as it is more difficult to digest and leaves more toxins in the body.
Examples of food with high Kapha energy are mangoes, bananas, avocados, dates, grapes, melons, pineapples. Sweet and succulent vegetables, for example, cucumbers, yams, tomatoes, zucchini.
The CoolSlim Plan uses diet, yoga, lifestyle, and mindset – termed "The CoolSlim Plan". This is a revolutionary concept of using the centuries-old knowledge of Kapha energy in a modern approach to weight management.
Prof. Rob Campbell, from Lancaster University, calls the CoolSlim Plan “as the way forward in this jungle of obesity, unhealthy lifestyles, lack of motivation and exercise. You will be motivated to be the best you can be naturally."
