Pitta diet chart
Once the individual constitution has been determined, the accompanying chart is provided to help the client determine those foods that are helpful or harmful to their constitution.
The suggested foods to decrease or balance the particular dosha, such foods being good for the individual of that particular constitution. The "no" foods increase or imbalance the particular dosha. Our goal is to either balance or reduce an imbalance in a particular dosha. It is important to remember that these descriptions reflect the pure aspect of each constitutional element. Each person is a combination of all three elements, with a predominant tendency toward one or two. Therefore this chart should serve only to draw general awareness to diet, in order to encourage a regimen that will promote good health.
