Why do we feel without energy and tired
Spring fatigue is a condition, which many of us experience after the end of the winter season. This condition is well-known as a term and is characterized by a feeling of decreased energy, lack of physical activity, dizziness, fatigue, and even depression. In a higher percentage, women are more affected by spring fatigue than men.
During the winter period, we usually gain weight, our physical activity decreases and at the beginning of spring, most of us have the need and desire to regain our normal weight. Another reason to want to get into shape and feel good in our skin is the forthcoming summer. We want to eliminate the accumulated kilograms and to tighten the problematic areas – buttocks and abdomen, and to look good in our swimming suits on the beach.
How to lose weight
There are a number of options that can help you deal with spring fatigue and lose weight. A common method is a diet – there are many types of diets that can lead to different results depending on the specific organism.
One of the most popular diets are:
- Mediterranean diet – it excludes the meat, dairy products, and hard alcohol, and includes seafood, fish, fruits, and vegetables.
- Low-calorie diets – here the consumption of fatty foods, carbohydrates, and foods with a high calorific index, is reduced.
- Low carbohydrate diets – the popular diet of Atkins, which includes mostly protein foods, as the consumption of carbohydrates is limited – especially of the pasta products and bread;
- Hay diet – this is a nutritional regime that does not mix carbohydrates and proteins, as well as sour fruits in one meal.
There are various weight loss options apart from the diets, for example, increased physical activity also reduces excess pounds.
Many people prefer to spend exhausting hours in the gym in order to improve their weight. Jogging in the morning, as well as group training such as Zumba, kangaroo jumps, Pilates, hot yoga and many more, are also among the popular weight loss methods.

Alternative medicine and weight loss
Ayurveda is an ancient Hindu medicine with over 5000 years of history. It uses centuries-old weight loss techniques and a complex of combined physical exercises that include yoga asanas, proper diet, and ayurvedic therapies/massages.
The main difference between conventional medicine and Ayurvedic medicine is that Ayurveda focuses on the question of why fat cells become larger and it seeks long-term solutions for this problem. The concept of accumulated toxins in Ayurveda (АМА) explores this problem. The main actions are towards the elimination of Ama from the organism and strengthening the digestive fire Agni, so that the unnecessary and unabsorbed waste substances can be released out from the body. In other words, according to Ayurveda, detoxification is the key to effective weight loss and long and fulfilling life. Very often the Ayurvedic therapies include herbs, herbal potions, and mixtures that are applied both externally and internally.
One of the most effective weight loss herbs are:
- Triphala – a complex of three Indian superfoods – Amalaki (natural antioxidant), Haritaki (eliminates toxins in the intestines) and Bibhitaki (reduces the accumulated liquids and fats in the organism)
- Garcinia Cambogia – a widely used and well-known plant whose fruits treat various disease related to digestion. In Ayurveda, it is used to help burn fat, increase metabolism and to suppress appetite.
Apart from the recommended herbs, the ayurvedic regime focused on weight loss, imposes also several rules that have to be observed for better results, namely:
- Abundant lunch and a small portion for dinner;
- After 7 p.m. we should not consume food, because the digestive fire is stronger at lunchtime;
- We should consume warm foods, as this will increase the digestive fire because when we eat raw foods the organism needs twice as much energy to “warm up” the food in order to absorb its beneficial substances;
- We should not drink fluids while eating;
Ayurvedic medicine has countless useful tips, that’s why nowadays it is so popular in the western world.
Before you start an Ayurvedic weight loss diet, first you should consult with an Ayurveda specialist who will determine your dominant Dosha – Pitta, Kapha or Vata, and he will prescribe a nutritional regime that will balance the respective dosha. You can find such a specialist in Ayurveda Clinic Sofia – one of the most modern centers for diagnostics and treatment in Bulgaria. Another center for cleansing, rejuvenation, and beautifying is the Ayurveda Clinic Bansko, where you can undergo a complete cleansing course within 8/11/15/22 or 29 days.
