Ayurveda expert on diabetes-causing diet errors 2023
In a recent Instagram post, Ayurveda expert Dr. Dixa Bhavsar Savaliya discusses dietary errors that may increase the risk of developing diabetes.
Consuming curds daily
Curd is considered a healthy probiotic food, and many people attempt to incorporate it into their daily diet. However, Ayurveda discourages daily consumption of curd.
According to Dr. Savaliya, consuming curd daily can result in weight gain, inflammation, and a sluggish metabolism.
Many of us are culpable of consuming late at night, leaving little time for our digestive systems to function.
According to Dr. Savaliya, large dinners can increase the burden on the liver and slow down the metabolism, which can eventually contribute to nutrient deficiencies and other health issues.
There are times when we force ourselves to consume whatever is on the plate, despite having no appetite or being filled.
According to the Ayurveda expert, eating beyond appetite or capacity leads to obesity, cholesterol, and digestive issues.
Consuming without hunger
If you are accustomed to consuming without regard for your body’s signals, you are in for trouble. Stress feeding every few hours may have long-term negative effects. According to Dr. Savaliya, eating without an appetite (when your stomach is already filled) or consuming every hour or two can reduce insulin sensitivity and result in diabetes.
“Avoid these habits to keep pre-diabetes and diabetes as far away from you as possible, especially if you have a family history of diabetes,” advises Dr. Savaliya. “These habits can reduce insulin sensitivity, disrupt metabolism and nutrient absorption, and increase gut inflammation.”
“This can result in digestive issues, unwarranted food appetites, loss of muscle mass, fatigue, and sleep problems, among others. Dr. Savaliya adds that it leads to Kapha accumulation in the body, which can obstruct your channels and make you diabetic or pre-diabetic, as well as cause high blood pressure and cholesterol issues.
