According to Ayurveda, our body is made up of 7 dhatus. These dhatus are Rasa (lymph), Maans (muscle), Meda (fat), Majja (Nervous system), Rakta (blood), Asthi (bones) and Shukra (reproductive system). In obese people, Meda (fat) is excessively nourished while other dhatus are malnourished. Obesity occurs due to abnormal increase of Kapha dosha in the body.
