The diseases related to nutrition constitute the most important health problem of the world. It may be due to over nutrition in the form of obesity (Sthula) as in developed countries and due to under nutrition in the form of underweight (Karshya) as in the developing countries.

According to Ayurvedic classics Vataja Prakriti person has lean body constitution and there is continuous degradation and aggradations in the body (Chakrapani Tika).
