Highly Recommended reduce the consumption of sweet, sour and salty tastes. “Why?” – you ask. The sweet taste has the qualities of heaviness, coldness, and moisture, with the sweet taste being the coldest, heaviest, and wettest of the six tastes. The sour taste has the quality of wetness, while the salty taste has the quality of wetness and heaviness. Namely, the qualities of heaviness, humidity and cold are now manifested in nature, therefore, by consuming such tastes, we will further increase these qualities, which will lead to imbalance and health problems. Therefore, these tastes, like all heavy and oily foods, should be significantly reduced or eliminated. This is especially true for sweets, sugar, white flour baked goods, cheese, dairy products in general, potatoes, fish and meat. Salt does not need to be completely excluded from the diet, we usually do not eat it in large quantities, but you do not need to get carried away with salt. Himalayan pink salt is considered the best salt.
Food should be light, dried, warm. Be sure to use pungent, astringent and bitter tastes, they will balance our condition. Spices will help with this – for example, pepper, ginger, cumin, asafoetida, cloves, turmeric, basil, bitter herbs.
Featured Products – long-grain types of rice (for example, basmati), barley (barley groats and barley), mung or mung dal (peeled mung bean), old wheat, buckwheat, millet, corn, honey. Honey, although sweet, has the qualities of lightness and dryness, and also has an astringent taste. Old honey, the one that stood for more than a year after collection, promotes weight loss, reduction of adipose tissue. Barley also has this property – to reduce adipose tissue.
It is recommended to use a small amount of water – drink when you are thirsty. A drink with ginger or honey is perfect, as well as decoctions or infusions of bitter herbs.
