Eating Habits

  • Eat when hungry. Food takes 3 - 6 hours to digest completely.
  • Eat freshly cooked meals.
  • Keep time aside for meals (15-20 minutes). Eat in a quiet, relaxed atmosphere. It is important to allow your body to focus on eating and digestion. This also helps in secreting proper amount of digestive enzymes.
  • Don't eat when upset, angry or nervous.
  • Eat to only ¾th of your capacity.
  • Chew food thoroughly because this increases awareness of eating and makes digestion easier.
  • Sit quietly in Vajrasana for 5 minutes after eating. This enhances digestion without stress.
  • If you feel the need to lie down, lie on the left side after meals.


Some Dietary and Lifestyle changes

  • Avoid intake of food that increases the fire (Pitta) element such as fried foods, spicy or pungent food, oranges, tomatoes, spinach etc.
  • Excessive intake of food that increases the air (Vata) element such as kidney beans, horse gram, white rice, sprouts etc.
  • Take a little papaya, grapes or pineapple after meals. They have digestive enzymes.
  • Take 2 teaspoons of wheat bran / rice bran with a glass of lukewarm water at bed time.
  • Consume juices such as coconut juice, wheat grass juice, carrot, apple or grape juice.
  • Cut back on fatty food. Eat more complex carbohydrates and proteins.
  • Live a moderate lifestyle. Remember excess of anything is bad.
  • Keep the balance between work and rest.
  • Practice meditation - 10 minutes in the morning and 10 minutes in evening.
  • Reduce overweight - it decreases hyperacidity.
