In my previous blog I promised you that I will share the program which worked for me. This is the program which Guru guided me on. There were many programs and approaches but I choose to follow this for a very simple reason. The reason is it’s aligned to nature and the nature of human mind and body. I am sharing with you the best of the best that worked and as a matter of fact is still working for me, the “Orange-walk Program”. Yes you guessed it right as the name suggests it clearly took me on the path of fruits and regular daily exercise. Just to give you the brief history of “Orange–walk” the eating/diet part of the program is a fantastic mixture of ancient ayurvedic approach, fit for life , raw food and on the footsteps of Dr.Vijaya Venkat’s healthy diet form the Health Awareness Centre .
Let me focus on little theory and more actions.
Our entire day in divided into three parts, first is accumulation, then assimilation and elimination.
12 noon to 7pm is accumulation: This is when I can eat all my food….bindast. Eat whatever I like but just make sure I don’t mix two kinds of food. (Ayurveda also goes against the mixing of variety of foods. According to this system, each food has its own taste (rasa), energy (virya) and post-digestive effect (vipak). So, when two or three different foods of different taste, energy and post-digestive effect (proteins, carbohydrates and fats) are mixed, it disrupts the digestive power (agni) and hamper the digestion. This results in indigestion, fermentation and gas formation. On the contrary, if we eat these foods separately at different times of the day they are digested quickly and easily as the agni gets stimulated. ) I make it a point to have lemon shot (equal amount of lemon juice and water) after every meal. I have my lunch at 12.30pm everyday and my evening dinner at 6.30 pm. Hundreds of thousands of people do this and have been doing this for hundreds and thousands of years so let’s not discuss the crap called “How can this be practical”.
7pm to 4am is assimilation: I don’t have to do anything; body will do its job. The things I can intake during assimilation are fruits and juices. So I usually have a glass of juice at night. Nothing else is required. Keep the milk for calves we already had our share of milk in our infancy. Human beings and the domestic animals spoiled by human beings drink milk. No other animals drink milk other than their’s mother’s milk during infancy. The milk we drink is made for calves and not us…all that campaign of drink glass of milk a day is a big brainwash. Say NO to milk and dairy products….I know even I was shocked, but be with it. Few more on your way J.
4am to 12 noon is elimination: This is the time for fruits and fruits and fruits. Have as many as you like and start your day fresh. You can have fruit juices and lime shots in this phase with no worries at all. Again hundreds of thousands of people do this and have been doing this for hundreds and thousands of years so let’s not discuss the crap called “How can this be practical” J. I am not joking but seriously all the habits we have at present are all actually difficult to follow but we have made them our habits and now they look easy. Practice and do share your experience with me.
