The route you follow will often determine how quickly you reach your weight loss goal. Choosing foods that will increase your chance of success is vital, and dudhi juice has been named on the alternative medicine scene as a potential weight loss aid, the NutriHealth website states. Dudhi, also known as bottle gourd and lauki, is a bottle shaped, yellowish green vegetable common in India and is cultivated in tropical regions where it responds well to warm humid climates. It is 96.1 percent water, making it an ideal source of juices.

Using The Dudhi Plant

Eating the raw vegetable is not recommended, according to the health and fitness website NutriHealth, there being some concern that it may be harmful to the stomach and intestine, but the juice is considered an ideal weight loss aid, since 100 g of this vegetable has only 12 calories.

Health Benefits of Dudhi

Dudhi is considered to have medicinal value in the treatment of urinary tract infections, constipation, insomnia, fatigue and weight loss. It has been heavily used over the years in the Indian Ayurvedic medicinal system, and continues to hold an important place in Ayurveda.

Ayurveda

Ayurveda is a system of medicine focused on helping people achieve balanced lives, live longer and be healthier by assuming a holistic approach. It has been practiced in India for more than 5,000 years and is now being embraced by some Westerners. Ayurveda works on the premise that herbal remedies, coupled with proper diet and lifestyle, will maintain the balance of the body, mind and consciousness, and will prevent diseases and help to cure others. Dudhi is just one of the many naturally occurring products used in herbal remedies in Ayurveda to treat medical conditions and help people achieve goals such as weight loss.

Losing Weight With Dudhi Juice

With its high fiber and water content, dudhi is a good juice candidate. A glass of dudhi juice in the morning gives you enough fiber to prevent overeating at breakfast, according to the NutriHealth website. This filling juice also works well as a replacement for fattening, unhealthy snacks. The weight loss properties of dudhi juice lie mainly in the fiber, so do not strain your juice. Keep the fiber goodness in the glass and drink your way towards weight loss.

Considerations

Weight loss products such as dudhi juice may help you on your way to your weight loss goal, but you must be willing to combine this with a proper diet and sufficient exercise for maximum effect. A balanced diet that is high in fiber will keep you moving towards better health and optimized body weight.
