    Lord Atreya, author of the Charaka Samhita (early text on Ayurveda – Indian traditional medicine) explains the proper way of eating food:

    If you eat too much or too less or the wrong way, then it can be harmful and it is very important for us to understand how and when food should be eaten.

    Eating is very important in life. It helps in sustaining a good life. In the same way, eating polluted food can cause diseases. Eating properly and regularly helps in maintaining digestion power. In other words, it helps in maintaining the body’s temperature and good health.
