The quantity and frequency of meals has become another debatable topic of present times. There are diverse views and beliefs prevalent in the society, and most of them aim at population as a whole and not person as an individual.
While modern dietitics revolves around the proportion of macro and micro nutrients in the diet based on various general factors, the Ayurvedic concept goes a step ahead in making it more customised for each individual with these 3 basic rules:
- According to Ayurveda, one should primarily keep in mind one’s hunger and digestive capacity while eating. Our body tells us how much food we need, but we tend to overlook it thereby entering into a state of over nutrition or under nutrition.
- Owing to the lifestyle of most of the individuals (adults) today, one must consume 2 meals per day in order to give each meal sufficient time for undergoing digestion. However, this rule has exceptions and is subject to change.
- Depending on one’s digestive capacity, the stomach should hypothetically be divided into 4 parts out of which 2 parts need be filled with solid food, 1 part with fluids and the remaining 1 part needs to be left for air to move.
