The hustle and bustle in life as well as work nowadays has left people with nearly no time to eat. A significant amount of the population does not even know when they actually feel hungry; and eat either because its the meal time as per the clock or they have found out some spare time from their busy schedule or they have a false hunger alarm ringing in their head.
But does it ever strike us that this could be harmful? That playing with our digestive fire could lead us into over-nutrition/ under-nutrition/ mal-nutrition?!
The most important point to identify here is the “True Hunger” / “Stomach Hunger” which has symptoms as follows:
- Udgaara shuddhi (Clear Belching)
- Utsaaha (Feeling of Enthusiasm)
- Yathochita vegotsarga (Proper Passage of Faeces and Urine)
- Laghuta (Feeling of Lightness in Body and Stomach)
- Kshut (Feeling of Hunger)
- Pipaasa (Feeling of Thirst)
Eating without the appearance of these symptoms or not eating on the appearance of these symptoms; both are dangerous and special care must be taken in this regard. Further, the night meal must be consumed at-least 2 hours before bedtime.
