How Your Body Type Determines the Food You Should Eat
Asha from Amour Health, who will be at FitFest Oxford in June, is passionate about weight management, mindset coaching and the Amour Revolution. We asked for Asha’s advice on body type and how it affects what we should eat.
“Your unique body type consists of the 5 elements: Air, Earth, Water, Fire and Space. It is dependent on your birth, and the health and wellbeing of yourself and your parents, among other things. These make up your body composition: your dosha type.
“There are three types of dosha. The Vata, which is space and air; the Pitta, which is fire and water; and the Kapha, which is earth and water. Each of the three types requires more of certain types of foods, but the aim is to have the types in harmony with each other within you. Whether you are a Vata, Pitta or Kapha, you should eat a nutritious, protein-rich meal between 10am-2pm. Dinner should be a light meal and eaten before 6pm to allow time for digestion. Aim to go to bed by 10pm, as your body repairs itself and cells are renewed between 10pm-2am.
This is the ideal daily routine perfect for all dosha types, to start to optimise their overall health and wellbeing.”
