Bhojana Vidhi | Foods and Drinks in Dinacharya

Bhojana Vidhi in Ayurvedic Dinacharya Self Care is about having a proper, healthy diet. It’s advised that food should be taken when you feel hungry, which, for healthy people should be two or maximum three times per day.

It`s not recommended to exercise immediately after eating (except for taking a very light stroll), neither should you go to sleep nor have sex immediately after having eaten.

Additionally, you should not eat too late and not too heavy on the evening (prescribed is between 6:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m.), and certainly not in the night. Breakfast should be the last activity of the early morning routine, and it should be rather light.

The largest meal of the day should be taken at noon, an activity which is part of the daytime routine. The gap between the various main meals should not be smaller than three hours. You should neither eat reheated food.

Other particular advice is that you should first eat solid food, followed by more liquid food materials. Water should not be taken before and after eating, but only during your meal.

Characteristically, foods and drinks are chosen that support your body type according to your predominant Dosha, or according to the Doshas that need stimulation or alternatively need to be appeased.
