Eat less. Live more. Eat only 70% of your hunger. Stop eating at a point when you neither feel hungry nor full. Another indicator that you’ve eaten enough is when you get the First Burrp. Food eaten before the 1st burp feeds your body and after this feeds your doctor.
Never overeat because your stomach needs space to accommodate digestive juices that secrets after you finish eating. And it still needs some more empty space for food & digestive juices to churn inside your stomach bag.
When this space is not available digestive juices move upward to enter the food pipe leading to acidity, bloating, flatulence, and burning sensation around the chest. It also leaves the food partially undigested which produces harmful toxins called AMA in Ayurveda.
Overeating also expands the size of your stomach bag over time which leads to increased food requirements to satiate your hunger leading to obesity.
Similar to Ayurveda, Japanese who live healthy for 80+ years follow ‘hara hachi bu’ teaching that instructs people to eat until they are 80 percent full.
