Editorial Reviews

Review

"At last a medical doctor who really understands Ayurveda has brilliantly focused the Ayurvedic art of individualizing on tailoring diet and exercise so they feel natural, are enjoyable and bring your weight to its ideal."

"Scott Gerson is one of the few experts who could have done this: dig out the subtleties of Ayurveda that can tweak your metabolic balance and drop pounds while enhancing health and vitality."

"The Ayurvedic Guide to Diet and Weight Loss is a well-researched and practical compendium to our most important health concerns. It also contains an excellent overview of the entire Ayurvedic system of medicine. Dr. Scott Gerson has made a notable contribution to the existing literature on Ayurveda, adding a detailed scientific and clinical dimension that shows the depth and relevance of the Ayurvedic approach to right-living. The book greatly expands the field not only of Ayurveda, but can potentially revolutionize our entire approach to diet and health."

Format: Paperback
Dr. Gerson uses the ayurvedic approach to weight loss and diet in his clinic and has been very successful in aiding his patients in gaining long-term control over their weight management strategies. When Dr. Oz did his recent program on Ayurvedic diet for body type, it became clear that the experience of Dr. Gerson and his work with his patients was both very relevant and very timely. Even applying just a few of the tips can make a difference in how one feels and how one controls one's weight. One particularly useful tip for me was the recommendation to sip room temperature water through the day to moderate the appetite. Simple, yet effective.

Ayurvedic diet can be complicated since it isn't one size fits all, rather you need to tailor what you consume and create new habits for optimum health. While it can be confusing, if you are not familiar with the concepts of dosha's, once you or your practitioner has determined yours, this book becomes valuable in your plan to lose weight and regain health and vitality.

I bought this book awhile back and I have tried to follow it. But, it is poorly organized and quite confusing. Think of the old weight watchers where you had to pick 1 serving from group A, 2 servings from group B. etc. Who has that kind of patience and time???? If you are interested in Ayurvedic weight loss, then I suggest that you see an ayurvedic specialist in your area. Skip this book. Mine is in storage.

With so much diet advice coming from so many different places, it's nice to have a source that is not only grounded in a tradition based on thousands and thousands of years of experience, but also incredibly effective. I've been a patient of Dr. Gerson's so I can attest to the fact that this guy really knows what he's doing (he was able to quickly resolve some issues that no one else came even close to figuring out). With some simple dietary tweaks I've been able to resolve my health issues and greatly improve my health (e.g., I almost never get sick anymore, and when I do, it clears up in about 1/3 of the time it used to take me to fully recover from sicknesses in the past). While modern medicine has its attributes, more people would be better served by first visiting someone like Dr. Gerson (easily one of the most intelligent and witty people I've ever met).
