Mindful eating helps to control impulsive eating

"You are what you eat" is an old saying. This is based on a teaching from our shastras including Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, Bhagwad Gita and the various Upanishads. 

To acquire health and happiness, one needs to live a balanced life. This message is illustrated in Chapter 6 Shloka 17 of the Bhagwad Gita where Krishna says to Arjuna "Yukaharaviharasya yuktachestasya karmasu. Yuktasvapnavabodhasya yoga bhavati duhkhaha". It means "the one, whose diet and movements are balanced, whose actions are proper, whose hours of sleeping and waking up are regular, and who follows the path of meditation, is the destroyer of pain or unhappiness."

The Bhagwad Gita also explains how to eat: "While eating, one should concentrate only on eating as the food is served to one's consciousness" (9.27). 

This message in our ancient texts has stood the test of time and is never more relevant than today in view of the rising numbers of lifestyle diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, obesity, metabolic syndrome, etc.

New Delhi, March 07, 2017: Older women are more likely than men to have chronic, or ongoing, health conditions - such as arthritis, high blood pressure, and osteoporosis. Women are also more likely to develop multiple health problems.

Padma Shri Awardee Dr K K Aggarwal, National President Indian Medical Association (IMA) and President Heart Care Foundation of India (HCFI) and Dr RN Tandon - Honorary Secretary General IMA in a joint statement said, "Most common problems encountered in women after 65 are cardiovascular disorders and arthritis. Hypertension and thyroid problems are a close second. To avoid CVD related adverse health outcomes, take low dose aspirin routinely to prevent heart attack and stroke related paralysis. Aspirin has been shown to prevent both heart attacks and stroke in this age group.
