There are many who take pride in having a high ‘pitta dosha’ available this means that they easily burn up any and all carbs and sugars and in effect not gain fat. As wonderful as this sounds, it can create drastic health problems if and when you skip meals. Imagine placing an empty kettle on top of a burning stove. The fire exists, and this would evidently damage the kettle. Similarly the fire is an analogy for the high pitta dosha and the kettle here is our body so when we don’t consume anything during the necessary time, we start building up acids and ‘ama’ and this would cause a multitude of health problems including but not limited to ulcer in the long run. So if you happen to have a high pitta dosha count then never skip meals, ensure to eat three square meals per day, have a good night’s rest so that your dosha values do not get imbalanced due to the sleep variations or lack of it.
