Question: How often to eat?

It depends on your bodily constitution. Some people, kapha constitution they call it, their body retains water and the metabolism is very slow. And it’s best for them to eat once a day and maybe have something very light at another time. And it’s best that meal should be around 11 in the morning till 2 in the afternoon. That’s the best for them.

Whereas, pitta constitution persons, their metabolism is very fast. They can eat four times a day.

Vata, they are always having problems with digestion: a lot of air, a lot of wind. So they should eat small amounts, maybe three times a day. Some of them prefer to eat two times a day.

So it’s very variable.
