Weight Loss Schemes or Scams?

I went to Shathayu to enquire about weight loss. It has turned out to be a money ripp off business in name of weight loss. Because, 4 years ago at this same place they had given me a good diet chart to lose weight but now they dont have anything to offer other than detoxfication and massages. I posted my question to them but again inturn they answered to me that I should take 25 days of weight loss package only.

Pose a Challenge to DOCTORS OF SHATHAYU

Challenge yourself and pose a challenge to the doctors of Shathayu that you can lose weight on your own with correct diet and some medicine. Request, pledge or demand them to give a good diet chart. Never spend money for their massages or detox.

Their 25 days program is a total scam and fraud business.


Detox Quackery

Money Makes you Eligible

Certainly it is clear that money makes the eligibilgy factor at shathayu. otherwise they dont answer to any questions. Later I realized that it has turned out to be a franchise business and MONEY factor is very important and all highly expensive ripp of packages of helath they have, but they call it as affordable:) in these conversations I had a colleague who had fallen prey for these kidn of weight loss packages. she strictly told me to avoid because it is too temporary to sustain that kind of weight loss and a months time all the lost weight will come back and it is total waste of money to invest so much on all these.

Thanks to Internet

I was aware of the scams of VLCC and so many other centres. But, even doctors lying so much only for their surivial and misleading the people was very shocking. These programs are totally baseless

I request everyone to report to FTC because we should put an end to these kind of programs and therapies.

Do your Homework

These often fraudulent companies will use marketing techniques, dodgy science, fake images and false claims about how effective for achieving rapid weight loss. You’ll see airbrushed or faked ‘before and after’ photographs of someone they claim has been successful.

They exploit the fact that people can often be attracted by promises of success with little effort. Many weight loss scams suggest that you can achieve great results without having to do any extra exercise or even modify your diet. Just like 6 Kgs in 25 Days.

Do not rely on Testimonals

Ayurveda name might sound to be impressive. They are the fools who are not aware and fallen prey to all these programs and have writtent testimonials. dont beleive in it.

6 Kgs in 25 Days( Do it by Yourself)

Healthy dieting and 30 minutes of brisk walk. A diet chart given to me by expert nutrional expert and I paid only 2000/ for it. I lost 8 kgs within 2 months.

Start your day with 2 glasses of warm water. Just like you wake up and wash your face, you are washing out your digestive system too. It does wonders for a good complexion.

Half - one cup milk or coffee/ tea can follow the water.


Then comes breakfast at 8- 9 am, this can be 1- 1 and a half-cup cereal(avoid raisins and nuts) with 1-cup skimmed milk(1-2 tsp sugar permitted if you are not diabetic) or 2-3 slices whole wheat bread with tomato/cucumber slices and an egg(if high cholesterol use 2 egg whites only)

Omlette made on non-stick pan is permitted OR

1-2 stuffed roti’s using vegetables like methi, mooli, gobi, with half to 1-cup curd or dhal. Or 3-4 Idlis OR 2-3 dosas(on a nonstick pan) with sambar, no coconut chutney to be eaten. Green chutney with channa dhal is permitted. OR 2-3 slice whole wheat bread or 2-3 phulkas with half-cup sabji/pallya plus 1 glass skimmed milk(1 Cup or 1 glass= 225ml). I advise that 1 C skimmed milk/curd be taken with breakfast daily. It can be in the form of coffee or tea also.

Please avoid upma, sevia and poha while on a very strict diet. Ragi porridge, or oats porridge with, 1-cup milk or curds is also a good idea. Ragi dosa is better than rice dosa as it contains more fiber, vitamins and minerals. Don’t add your fruit to breakfast but carry it out with you to eat as a snack at 11am. Skimmed buttermilk, coffee or tea is also permitted at 11am. But don’t miss your fruit. It gives you a quick spurt of energy and vitamins that will revive you and carry you safely through to lunch. Please avoid fruit juices at breakfast or other wise as it has more calories and no fiber as compared to eating one orange or apple whole as a fruit. Only eating fruits for breakfast is wrong.


Lunch at 1-2 pm should be a properly balanced meal. Just a sandwich or only a soup and toast for lunch is wrong. This will make you hungry in a couple of hours and by 6 pm you will be eating all the wrong snacks you can find. Lunch should be 2-3 phulkas or 1-cup rice or1-2 phulkas, with half-1 cup rice. Plus, half to 1 cup dhal, half to 1-cup vegetable sabji/pallya and a big bowl of salad and skimmed curd. Non-veg, 1-2 pieces of chicken or fish without gravy may be eaten along with the above. If unsatisfied with these quantities don’t increase the rice, dhal, sabji etc. but take additional salad and curd till your stomach is full. Curd must be made of skimmed milk. Strictly avoid commercially available curd as they have a high fat content.

At 4 pm Tea/Coffee and 1-2 marie biscuits /crackers. At 6 or 7 pm when you get home eat a fruit first. It gives energy in 20 minutes and will take care of your hunger pangs faster than any other food. If you are still hungry add a glass of skimmed milk as cold coffee or a milk shake. Even a cup of skimmed curd may be had as a lassi.


At 8-9 pm have your dinner of 2-3 small phulkas(dry chapati) with 1 cup of dhal or pulses like channa, rajma, moong. If this causes gas. Use only half-cup dhal and add a cup of skimmed curd or 2 egg whites, to fill you up. Avoid eating a cooked vegetable sabji or pallya at dinner and eat a huge bowl of salad(raita) with the roti and dhal. The roti and salad have a lot of fiber, which will raise your metabolic rate and help you to lose weight fast.

Please avoid non-veg at night as it gets stored as fat when you sleep. Also avoid rice, noodles, pasta, idli, upma, dosa, at night, as they are refined cereal and fattening. Only drinking a soup, or just a salad or one glass milk, for dinner is wrong. All meals must be eaten and must be properly balanced. Try to ensure that dinner is eaten at least 2 hours before you go to sleep. Don’t forget the MIRACLE FORMULA - WALK 20-30 minutes and WATER 2-3 liters must go with this DIET.

Doctors of Shathayu

Shame shame shame shame shame. for using the noble profession and turning it a manipulative one. Please stop harassing your innocent patients who come to you for help

    Shathayu Ayurveda Weight loss is a scam. They advertise nastily with using tags like 6KGS in 25 Days, that I have already registered a complaint in ASCI. As doctors of scientifc community, they go to the level of advertising, no crash diet, no streneous exercise, no vibrator usage. Very unscientifc methods like detox and massages are used and false and faulty marketing techniques are used like private slimming centres. Indecent model pictures, half covered clothed models are also used on website showing models waistlines and promising to show moons.

    Detox is the quack term used in the alternative scheme of medicine. Losing Fluid from body is not weight loss.
    I was searching for a better platform to write reviews because they are very powerful everywhere.
    TO put in nutshell, please avoid thier weight loss program. Use your common sense before investing so much money for short term weight loss. Happily stay away and take one year to lose weight but go slowly and steadily.
