In brief: Different approach
Ayurveda believes there are different body types.
Ayurveda approaches weight loss and fat reduction by providing guidelines for all dimensions of your being. There are 3 category - vada (digestion off), pitta (bile issues), kabba (low metabolism) and there are 5 layers for the body - so ayurveda address where the problem is according to body types (called dosa).

In brief: Another Fad...
All these diets trend (atkins, southbeach, master cleanse, etc, etc).
Like all diets you will lose weight while dieting and when the diet ends the yo-yo begins and you will gain more weight than you lost. When you diet you go into starvation mode and when you resume eating your body stores the calories even better. Best bet is to seek a qualified physician that can customize a program for you.
