How To Use Ghee For Weight Loss?

Ghee For Weight Loss Have you been told to avoid fats in your diet? Do you think that fats are bad for your health? This is not completely true. The naturally occurring good fats are essential for our body. They help absorb certain nutrients (like fat soluble vitamins A, D, E and K) and produce hormones.

However, there are bad fats also, the ones we consume from processed and packaged foods. Like biscuits, pastries, fried food in bad quality oils etc. They can lead to clogged arteries, weight gain and increased risk to diseases.

Eating home-made food made in good quality traditional oils and ghee will not take a toll on your health. Desi ghee is probably the best quality good fat one can consume.

Ghee traces back its origin to Ayurveda, where it has been described in depth about its properties, usage and benefits. As people started learning about its rich taste and health benefits, they couldn't stop eating ghee in an empty stomach or add it to their everyday meals.

However, buffalo ghee has been known for healthy weight gain . Ayurveda recommends consumption of desi cow ghee prepared from curd to reap the benefits of weight management.

Perplexed on hearing the words weight loss and ghee in a positive light? This article will clear your doubts. Keep reading.

Benefits of Consuming Desi Cow Ghee (Nutritional Value)

ghee for weight loss

Ghee or clarified butter is the storehouse of nutrients that expedite the speed of weight loss in your body. Ayurveda, the ancient Indian science, still praises the rich health benefits of ghee. Studies show that ghee contains good fats and other elements required for your body's growth.


Listed below are the scientifically proven benefits of consuming ghee:

benefits of desi ghee
  • The SCFAs (short-chain fatty acids) in ghee increase the speed of digestion in your body. If you add a teaspoon or two of ghee in your meals, it will help digest it faster and better and help you lose weight.
  • Ghee contains omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, which reduce the fat levels in your body and eases reshaping your body.
  • Ghee pushes the stored fat cells in the body to be burnt in exchange for energy. This helps in reducing weight faster.
  • Fat cells in your body become smaller because of the amino acid content in the ghee.
  • The DHA in ghee prevents major illnesses like arthritis, cancer, and heart attack. Because of the presence of this omega-3 fatty acid, people believe that ghee improves memory.
  • Ghee helps in better assimilation of Vitamin D which keeps thyroid in good shape and is critical to losing weight.

Does ghee raise cholesterol?

Recent research shows that dietary cholesterol is not harmful and is in-fact produced by our own body. In 2015, USDA has removed its limit on consumption of cholesterol and instead recommended to reduce consumption of transfats and added sugars. 

Lab studies have shown that desi ghee reduces total cholesterol levels in the body as the secretion of biliary lipids increases.

How To Consume Ghee For Weight Loss?

Is ghee good for weight loss? Yes definitely, desi cow ghee made from Vedic process of bi-directional curd churning is great for weight loss when consumed in moderate amounts. 

Consuming ghee with everyday meal is a good practice. It reduces the glycemic index of food that you are eating and doesn't lead to steep rise in blood sugar levels. Dal rice, roti, khichdi topped with 1-2 tbsps of ghee or dal-baati, puran poli etc can be consumed safely.

While some are recommending eating ghee on an empty stomach for weight loss, and others believe in mixing it with the meals. Let's learn the benefits of both methods. 


Ghee with Milk

Constipation is the major reason for bloating. When your food isn't digested properly, it creates physical problems like stomach pain and gas, which increases your weight. According to Ayurveda, mixing a teaspoon of ghee in a glass of warm milk creates a magical solution for dealing with constipation. You can also add a teaspoon of ghee over your meals for making it properly digestible. Improved digestion aids in weight loss.


Ghee with Hot Water

Many studies show the benefits of consuming ghee with hot water in the morning. Ayurveda asks to drink a tablespoon of ghee with warm water in the morning for lubricating the joints, making hair softer and silkier, and your skin soft and glowing. It heals the dryness of your skin internally and leaves your body feeling moisturized for the day. It also lubricates the gut and helps get rid of toxins thus improving the metabolism.
