Healthy Eating Teachings In Hinduism

As per Hinduism teachings, healthy eating means eating measured, limited or moderate amount of food. The food should be pure, tasty and wholesome – it should be an offering to God residing in the person. A person should not eat too much or too little. Eat only after the previous food has digested. A person should leave one-fourth part of the stomach empty; fill one-half of stomach with food and one-fourth with water.
