HOW TO EAT WHAT TO EAT ?

Updated: Mar 5, 2023

“Healthy eating is a way of life, so it’s important to establish routines that are simple, realistically, and ultimately liveable.” – Horace

 

Have you ever realised that your food has great impact upon your emotions, most of our thought process emotions and feelings are related to what we eat and how we eat.

Food is not a part of life for keeping us alive, rather it has great influence upon our actions.

Here plays the 3 Gunas of our life

The guans are nothing but the quality of energy in the physical body.

1.SATTVA GUNA

2.RAJAS GUNA

3.TAMAS GUNA

SATTVA GUNA :

The quality with calm, joy, balanced harmony and intelligence. these people will be filled up with truth, intellectual and enriched with spiritual essence. The satva guna not only makes a person mentally strong but also keeps the entire plane of being in harmony with nature.

RAJA GUNA:

The quality with energy, enthusiasm and active. These people will be more passinated with aspiration which always keeps them active or in a mobile state to attain something in their life , a kind of crave towards desire or goal.their goal will be materialistic and will be with full of greed and restlessness.

THAMA GUNA :

The quality with apparition and illusion due to over thinking and physicall will be very weak and lazyness.this makes one to be very less active and attentive and be more persistence. Most of the people with Tama guna will live in their imagination and will plan big but will never think of execution.




As stated in the Bhagavad Gita:

“When one rises above the three gunas that originate in the body; one is freed from birth, old age, disease, and death; and attains enlightenment”

There cannot be pure sattva without rajas and tamas. There cannot be pure rajas without sattva and tamas. And finally, there cannot be pure tamas without sattva and rajas.

We cant have only sattva guna or raja guna or thama guna , we can never be the pure form of any one thing combination of all three helps to face the battle of our life. So make sure that we have a balanced emotion with diet and lifestyle.

यथा चित्तं तथा वाचो यथा वाचस्तथा क्रिया । चित्ते वाचि क्रियायां च साधूनामेकरूपता ॥

Transliteration: yathā cittaṃ tathā vāco yathā vācastathā kriyā । citte vāci kriyāyāṃ ca sādhūnāmekarūpatā ॥

English Translation: As is the mind, so is the speech; as is the speech so is the action. Of the good people there is uniformity in mind, speech and action.​

Brief upon each topic:

1. Fat: One of the most important and essential part of diet which is required for the absorption of Vitamin. A, D, E &K. Fats are a type of nutrient that we get from the diet. It is essential to eat some fats, though it is also harmful to eat too much.Here we need to understand about good and bad fat.


GOOD

BAD

WORST

High-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol is known as the "good" cholesterol because it helps remove other forms of cholesterol from your bloodstream. Higher levels of HDL cholesterol are associated with a lower risk of heart disease.

Ex: olive oil, fish , legumes, flax seeds,nuts , chia seeds , avagado ,seeds and nuts

Low-density lipoprotein cholesterol. High levels of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) can eventually build up within the walls of your blood vessels and narrow the passageways. Sometimes a clot can form and get stuck in the narrowed space, causing a heart attack or stroke. This is why LDL cholesterol is often referred to as "bad" cholesterol.

Ex: Healted oils, meat, cheese and other fat content dairt products.

Trans fat is a type of dietary fat. Of all the fats, trans fat is the worst for your health. Too much trans fat in your diet increases your risk for heart disease and other health problems.



Ex: Commercial baked goods, such as cakes, cookies and pies Shortening, Microwave popcorn, Frozen pizza, Refrigerated dough, such as biscuits and rolls, Fried foods, including french fries, doughnuts and fried chicken etc
