    Important Rules And Regulations Related to DIET :

    1) Defination :

    Diet is that – what we eat.

    It includes everything we eat or drink.

    Diet is the cause of the very existence, Energy , Colour & ‘Oja’ (immunity/Ultimate purified form of all the Sharir Dhatus i.e Body tissues) of every living being on this earth.

    2) ‘Diet’ is the cause of the birth, maintenance, & destruction of all forms of life on this earth.

    From ‘Diet’ only we acquire following things – constant growth, unhampered growth , Energy , Wellbeing – Health, Colour, Proper functioning of the Indriyas (Sense Organs).

    Improper dietis the major cause of all illness according to Ayurveda.

    From all above statements one can say that’ In short everything depends

    on diet.


    According to Ayurveda Body is said to be made up of Panch Mahabhutas (Pentads) & hence the food also needs to be Panchbhautic (Made up of Panch (five) Mahabhutas) then only food can get digested & be utilized for the growth of Panchamahabhutas (the basic constituents of body) which in turn results in growth of body.

    1) It should increase the strength of body.

    2) It should be tasty/it should be such that it should be liked by the one, who is taking it.

    3) It should give energy instantaneously / immediately after taking it.

    5) It should satisfy the one taking it .

    6) It should be hot, unctuous ,not dry when taken.

    7) Should be taken in proper quantity.

    Cool It should not be incompatible .(mentioned in uneasy combinations below)

    The food (Diet) with all above properties is said to be ldeal diet.

    The Diet which is of all the properties explained above can only do the functions prescribed to it.

    3) FUNCTIONS OF DIET (food)

    1) Instantly satisfying.

    2) Gives strength/energy.

    3) Maintains the body & maintains the functions of the body .

    4) Increases longevity.

    5) Increases the Digestive fire , Vitality , Recollecting Power , & Oja .


    There are four types of diet

    i) That which can be drunk

    ii) That which can be licked

    iii) Easily chewable e.g. Rice etc.

    iv) Hard food substances which need to be chewed e.g. Sugarcane, meat.

    Some have given 6 types in addition to the four stated above :

    v) which should be sucked e.g. Mango.

    vi) Which needs mastication by teeth, these include very hard food materials e.g. various nuts.

    Some have stated 8 types / forms of food / Diet. In addition to the above 6.

    vii) Those which can only be eaten after being grinded into powder, various pastes etc.

    viii) Food substances like Suger candy etc.

    5) According to Nature – Diet has been classified into 2 types Heavy Diet & Light diet.

    Rain water, Raktashali (Red rice), Sathe Sali (Old rice), Mudga, Eina (black deer) & lava (kind of bird und in airid regions) are light / laghu.

    Milk, sugarcane, fresh Rice, Udad( black gram) & meat of the animals from Anoop Desh – land with abundant water & plantation (Marshy lands, equatorial Rain forests) are considered to be Guru (Heavy)

    6) Seven Concept of Diet

    The following points are important in the making the Diet complete – (promoting health) or improper- (giving Rise to various diseases).

    1) Basic nature / properties of the food

    2) Combination of 2 or more food material changes the qualities / properties of food material.

    3) Due to boiling, roasting etc. there is change in the properties of the food.

    4) Quantity of food we take.

    5) Region has 2 meanings – the region where the food is being taken &

    Secondly region means the area the food is been produced affects the properties of food material.

    6) The time when one takes the food.

    7) The order in which one takes the food.


    Proper excretion of urine & Stools, Doshas go to the there respective sthanas i.e sites, strotasas are clean and free from blockage & indriyas i.e. sense organs are sharp and attentive, one feels lightness of body , Belching with proper smell to it. With proper excretion of ‘Apaan vayu’ , Heart becomes Nirdosha i.e. we feel like eating & drinking.

    When all the above signs are present then only one should eat; as this is the proper time for taking the diet.

    It is said that when the Doshas go to their own respective places & the Strotaras (channels) become clean then only one should take Food.


    It is decided according to digestive capacity of Agni. If Agni is weak then one should take food only once or should take food in less quantity.

    Food taken once i.e. at one time which gets digested completely & properly , is said to be Matra/Quantity of food to be taken.

    Considering four parts of the Stomach, one should take food such that 2 parts of the Stomach get filled by the food taken, one part to be filled by water or other liquid matter & one part should be kept free for the ‘Vayu’ / Gas to move .

    One should take diet in proper quantity. The quantity of diet to be taken depends on the digestion capacity of the person which varies from person to person & so does the Matra.

    20) The amount of food, which without disturbing the equilibrium of dhatus & doshas of the body gets digested as well as metabolized in proper time is to be regarded as the proper quantity.

    The proper quantity of food does depend upon the nature of food articles. If the food article is heavy only three fourth or half of the stomach capacity is to be filled up. Even in the case of light food articles excessive intake is not conducive to the maintenance of the power of digestion & metabolism.


    Taken in Appropriate quantity, food certainly helps the individual in bringing about strength, complexion happiness & longevity without disturbing the equilibrium of dhatus & doshas of the body.

    Indicated Food :-

    One should regularly ( can take everyday) take Shastika (a kind of rice harvested in sixty days), Sali (oryza sativum), yellow gram , food cooked in Rock Salt, Amalaka (emblica officinalis), Rain Water, Ghee, Meat of animals dwelling in arid climate & Honey.

    Contradicted Food :

    One should not regularly take heavy articles such as dried meat, dry vegetables, lotus rhizomes & lotus stalk. One should never take meat of a diseased animal. Moreover, one should not regularly take boiled buttermilk, inspissiated milk with pork, beef, meat of buffalo with fish curd, & barley.


    First, one should eat food of sweet taste for the purpose of Vata Pitta pacification. Sweet taste is helpful for pacification of vata dosha present in the digestive tract or intestines.

    Then one should take sour & salty substances for they do the function of increasing the digestive juices. Lastly one should take food of bitter and pungent taste for the purpose of pacification of ‘Kapha’ .

    One should take fruits like pomegranate first in the diet. Then one should take liquid material & then lastly semisolid & solid food.


    The Eight factors which determine the utility or otherwise of various types of food are.

    1) nature of food articles

    2) method of their processing

    3) combination

    4) Quantity

    5) Habitat

    6) Time

    7) Rules governing intake of food.

    Cool Wholesomeness to individual who takes it.


    Healthy individuals as well as patients should observe the following:

    While having food articles which are most wholesome by nature; one should eat only that food in proper quantity which is hot, unctuous & not contradictory in potency & that too after the digestion of the previous meal, food should be taken in proper place with all the accessories, without talking & laughing with concentration of mind & paying due regard to oneself , not too fast or too slowly.

    2) Eat food which is beneficial.

    3) Eat food in a moderate quantity.

    6) Wash your hands, feet and mouth, using clean utensils in a clean place which is well lighted and well-ventilated.

    7) Fill half quantity of stomach with food, one fourth quantity with water and liquid substances and keep the remaining one fourth for air.

    Cool A person who takes only one full meal a day is called Yogee (or Yoga – practitioner). He takes light breakfast in the morning and the healthy and happy life.

    9) A person who takes two full meals in a day is called ‘Bhogi” i.e. a lusty and greedy person who lives mostly to eat and suffers from illness and or ill health from time to time.

    10) A person who takes full meals more than two times is called Rogee or a sick person. He a gluttonous person and lives only to eat. He is always sick and away from health.

    11) Don’t do yogic exercises immediately after taking food. It is safe to do them three hours after taking food. It is better therefore to do Yogic exercise early morning or in the evening when the stomach is empty.

    12) Don’t take food immediately after doing yogic exercises, but one hour after doing them.

    13) Don’t go to bed immediately after taking supper wait for a minimum of one hour after it.

    14) According to Ayurveda well balanced diet consists of food stuffs having six tastes namely Sweet, Sour, Salty, Pungent, Bitter and Astringent.

    Diet and Mind :

    Yogic and Ayurvedic aspects. Modern Dietetic consideration is only related to body. But it is a uniqueness of Yogashastra and Ayurveda which shows intimate relationship between diet and mind. Both the sciences assert with proofs that diet affects mentality of a human being. Satva (virtue), Raja (Aggressive desire) and Tama (Ignorant sloth) are the basic qualities of mind. Satvaguna is always strengthening, invigorating and vitalising. Satvaguna expresses essence, understanding, purity, clarity, compassion and love. Rajoguna implies movement, aggressiveness and extroversion and it operates on a sensual level. Tamoguna manifests ignorance, inertia, heaviness and dullness.

    Satvaguna is a positive virtue and it strengthens and stabilizes mind. Rajoguna and Tamoguna are negative attributes which destabilise and weaken the mind. Yet all the three attributes are required of course in a balanced state and having a strong control of satvaguna are necessary for normal functioning of the mind.

    As the final goal of yoga practitioner is elevation and uplifting of mental faculties to attain eternal bliss or moksha he/she should do everything to go on increasing his satvaguna through proper diet and good behaviour. Yoga becomes the destroyer of all woes and sorrows and can be accomplished only by him who is regulated and moderate in diet and recreation, regulated in speech and actions, and regulated in thinking and sleeping too.

    The Taste Process

    The first subjective experience of a substance on the tongue is taste (rasa). A short time later, one feels heating or cooling energy (virya). Finally the substances have an action on urine, fasces and sweat (vipak). For instance, for hot chilli peppers, one immediately experiences its pungent taste (rasa) and heating energy (virya) , observing a burning sensation in the faces and urine (vipaka) .

    ViryaHeating or Cooling Energy

    When any medicinal herb or food substance is put in the mouth, the first experience is its taste. Later, and in some cases immediately, you feel its heating or cooling energy, either in the mouth or stomach. This change is all due to its action or potent energy called Virya.

    By experience, one can form general rules about what a taste "feels like" in the body. For example, the sweet taste has a cooling energy, due to its heaviness. This action provokes kapha and is pleasing to pittaand vata. But there are occasional exceptions to this rule. Honey is sweet but have heating energy. This unexpected effect is termed Prabhav. In this same way, sour taste is usually heating expect in the instance of lime, which is cooling.

    VipakPost-Digestive Effect

    The final post-digestive effect of the taste on the body, mind and consciousness is called Vipak. While sweet and salty taste have a sweet vipak, sour taste has a sour vipak, but that of pungent, bitter and astringent tastes are all pungent. Knowledge of the energy and post-digestive effect of food or medicinal herbs makes understanding of its action on bodily system easy. This knowledge being essential for both healing and cooking.

    PrabhavSpecific Unexplained Action

    When two substances of similar taste, energy and post-digestive effect show entirely different action, it is called prabhav. There is no logical explanation for this. All gem stones, crystals and mantras aid healing due to their prabhav.

    Prabhav is therefore the specific, dynamic, hidden action of the awareness present in the substance.
