Tip #1 Eat only when you are hungry.
This is one of the ones we all know. But what you may not know is that it that ayurveda does not recommend snacks. Your body needs rest to completely digest the previous meal. When you snack between meals, you are restarting your digestive cycle even though the previous cycle in incomplete. If you feel hunger between meals, try sipping some warm water or herbal tea. If that doesn't satisfy your hunger and it is at least one hour before meal time, try eating fruit.
Ideally establish a daily eating schedule eating only at mealtimes. Eating three times a day, breakfast, lunch and dinner will regulate your digestive system and minimize overload.
So try for this week to establish your eating routine and check in with your body to see if you are truly hungry. If you find that you are not really hungry at a mealtime, give yourself permission to skip that meal. Lack of hunger may be your body's way of telling you that it isn't finished digesting the last meal or it may be attempting to cleanse.
