    How Much Should I Be Eating?
    How much should I be eating?

    Ayurveda recommends to divide the stomach into three parts. One third to be filled with food solids, one third liquids (this should come from small sips during your meal/avoid large amount of water with your main meal) and one third with air/ space (enabling the food to churn).

    If you think of a cooking pot filled to the top, this will make it difficult to stir your food or your food would boil over during the cooking process.

    Another advise of Ayurveda is that your food portion should fit in your two ?hands. Its so great to look at your cupped hands and visualise what would fit in there?
