Ayurveda & Guidelines For Proper Eating: AVOID OVEREATING

 Holiday temptations abound! Challenge yourself to follow one of Ayurveda’s most basic guidelines for healthy digestion: AVOID OVEREATING 

It is best to eat at a moderate pace until you are 75% full.


Overeating is one of the major causes of disease in our society. When we eat too much, digestion becomes difficult. The result of improper digestion is ama (toxins which can lead to disease).


When we finish eating, we should not feel heavy and we should not feel hungry. The goal is to feel satisfied. This is what is meant by 75% full. Eat enough to get you through to the next meal, ideally without snacking.
