    ABSTRACT People become obese for various reason including loss of self control over consumption. Practice of yoga reinforces basic ability of self control over food consumption. In this regard, the paper analyses the health economic cost of weight loss treatments. It is observed that the health economic cost of treatment could be reduced for the savings in food consumption achieved. The paper also seeks to extend the same benefit to yoga practice as the practice reduces food consumption and slows down metabolism. Recognising yoga as clean practice and evaluating yoga service for reducing/optimizing food consumption may promote healthy practices and may lead to completeness in conserving all forms of energy consumption, i.e mechanical energy and food energy. Further research is required to measure the benefits of yoga for creation of appropriate incentive structure.
