yogo bhavati duhkha-ha
– Bhagavad Gita (6.17)
The Gita speaks of Yuktahaar (‘Yukt’ means the right amount, quality and mindfulness), where Lord Krishna tells Arjun that for a meaningful Yoga practice, balance in food and sleep is crucial. Yuktahaar talks about this age old wisdom of eating right in a balance and reveals how the cutting edge technology and ground breaking research of the West is catching up with this timeless wisdom.
This philosophy sums up Munmun Ganeriwal’s program in a nutshell. Yuktahaar is essentially a diet, exercise and lifestyle intervention program that promotes a holistic approach towards sensible and sustainable weight loss and improved health.
Yuktahaar finds its roots in Indian philosophy, particularly yoga, which integrates awareness about food, diet and lifestyle and its effects on one’s body. It goes beyond contemporary protocol that revolves around weighing scales, counting calories, controlling portion sizes and having a list of “must avoid” foods.
It liberates you from the fear of eating foods that you like and enjoy, that you’ve always eaten as a child but which the weight loss industry has conditioned us to believe is fattening or unhealthy. Yuktahaar, on the other hand, encourages you to eat according to sustainability, diversity (based on your region and season) and most importantly, your individual personality.
And what about weight loss? By following this program, you get to enjoy weight loss as a bonus, without striving for or chasing it.
