Guide to Wellbeing - We don’t need any more sugar than the amount we get from the food we eat. A craving for sugar means you have not given your body the chance to digest. Also, you could be eating the wrong thing at the wrong time or not chewing enough or eating too much protein or eating when you are stressed. Instead of sugar, have a helping of fruit for breakfast.

  • We don’t need any more sugar than the amount we get from the food we eat. A craving for sugar means you have not given your body the chance to digest. Also, you could be eating the wrong thing at the wrong time or not chewing enough or eating too much protein or eating when you are stressed. Instead of sugar, have a helping of fruit for breakfast.

  • However, if you notice that fructose mal-absorption is causing mood swings, eat fruits like berries and papayas, cutting down on very sweet fruits like grapes and apples etc.

  • Incorporating fiber ensures digestion at the right speed and cleans the gut. Vegetables, fruit and whole grains are all good sources. Eat more pulses, nuts and seeds. Go for brightly colored vegetables and fruits as they are rich in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.


  • Though raw food puts more pressure on the digestive system, eat as much raw food as you like during the day but nothing raw after 4pm. Raw food eaten late in the day is converted to acid, leading to bloating.

  • Leaving out dinner is not a bad idea but never miss breakfast. When cooking, steam vegetables, grill meats and poach, steam or grill meats and poach steam or grill fish. Use only warm-pressed oils for frying. Palm oil and coconut oil are especially suitable. Butter is fine, but avoid overheating it as that will destroy the good fatty acids it contains.

  • Have a glass of water before going to bed. A small dinner will help you sleep well. Growth hormones and melatonin (the rebuilding hormone) work during the night and they need low temperatures for optimum function. Eating late raises the body temperature thereby hampering the regeneration of body cells.

  • Since liquids tend to dilute digestive enzymes it is often suggested to drink 15 minutes before eating and avoid water or juices at least an hour or so after food. But drink plenty of water (2-3 litres per day), herbal teas, fruit and vegetable juices throughout the day.


  • Eating in a hurry means we don’t chew well and we don’t produce enough saliva. This causes fermentation and putrid-fication of food in our guts. Don’t eat if you are in a hurry. Wait until you have some time to relax and enjoy the meal.

  • Eating when you are stressed can lead to extra fat being laid down-particularly around the midriff. Aim for 30 to 40 chews for every mouthful you take. It’s hard if you are not used to it. But it’s easy once it becomes a habit. Spend at least half an hour on every meal. Stop as soon as you feel full.
