Ayurvedic Diet and Diet Consultations

General Principles

  • Eat to about 3/4 your capacity. Do not leave the table very hungry or very full.
  • Avoid taking a meal until the previous meal has been digested. Allow approximately 3 - 6 hours between meals.
  • Eat in a settled and quiet atmosphere. Do NOT do work, read or watch TV during meal times.
  • In general, the diet should be balanced so as to include all six tastes. Specific recommendations may be found according to your constitutional type (see accompanying sheet).
  • Yogurt, cheese, cottage cheese and buttermilk should be avoided at night.
  • Milk is generally not recommended to be taken along with a meal involving mixed tastes (i.e., vegetables, meats, fish, etc.). It may be taken with toast, cereals, or sweet tasting foods, or separated from the meal by about 20 minutes.
  • It is best not to cook with honey.
  • Take a few minutes to sit quietly after a meal before returning to your activity.
