Eating Right or Overeating?
Every single day in our life we are sure to be eating food! Food is a necessity for life and food promotes Life! We are actually eating and munching through the day and sometimes owing to the fallacy incurred by our taste buds, we tend to overeat.
But have you found yourself to be rather uncomfortable every time you went into the practice of over-eating?
Our ancient wisdom rightly counsels -
‘You eat right and be content.
You overeat and then you repent !’
Perfect words! There is actually no escape when you have over-stuffed your bellies. Mahatma Gandhi has recommended -” Eat your Food as your Medicine”. He had the right envision of Natural living; and has always stressed upon meager eating and the significance of fasting.
Also, our ancient seers of #Ayurveda have wisely related the quantity of ingested food to our Agni or the digestive power. It has been specified that we need to eat only to the capacity to which we can comfortably digest the meal. The right proportion of food is directly proportional to our natural ability to digest the same. Only this would be nutritive, balancing and health and happiness promoting!
Here is a Practical Suggestion – You need to eat to your own capacity. A simple rule suggested to judge your capacity is to divide your stomach hypothetically into four parts. Of these, two parts are to be filled with solid food, one part with liquid. The fourth part is to be kept empty for the proper functioning of gases.
