people welcome back to Clareminded my name is Clare this episode is all about
the pitta dosha weight loss diet specifically talking about pitta food
list and recommended foods that you can consume if you’re dealing with any pitta
dosha imbalances or you’re just a natural pitta person this food list is
going to give you specifics foods of what you should be consuming for optimal
clarity within your body so I’ll start with a brief overview of the pitta dosha
and what the kind of qualities and everything that it carries I’ll give you
a brief overview of the preferred taste of the pitta dosha and then I’ll
go into the specific food list that you should be consuming for optimal health
if you’re a pitted dosha or dealing with any imbalances so the pitta dosha
overall it’s made up of fire and water those are it’s natural elements so the
qualities that it carries from that are very sharp they’re firey they’re oily
because that moisture and this can lead into physically someone with a moderate
shape they can have a bit of a red undertone moderate features all around
but they’ll have those sharp angles because they have that sharp qualities
their face will be a little bit more angular their digestion will be really
quick because there’s so much fire in the body so just kind of ignites and
keeps it going their personality can be somewhat intense they can deal with kind
of like that hotheadedness they can deal with anger and jealousy but they’re very
focused they’re goal-oriented and they’re very going to the direction type
of people so when they consume their food they
want to bring in those balancing elements so pitta dosha is made up of
fire and water so it’s got very hot hot sharp qualities so the opposing
qualities that you want to bring in are cooling effects you want to bring
cooling and grounding in because the pitta dosha is very light it’s flowing
because that fire you want to ground it down and cool it off that’s the biggest
thing you want to cool the pitta dosha off so the preferred taste for the pitta
dosha or the sweet taste you want to focus on the astringent and the bitter
taste these three tastes are favored for the pitta dosha the sweet taste is
really good because it’s made up of earth and water so it carries a lot of
like heavy dense qualities and the sweet taste is very cooling and it has
anti-inflammatory benefits so those type of foods kind of cool off the pitta
dosha and the pitta dosha is so prone to inflammation that the sweet taste can
kind of bring that in and counteract those imbalances if you have them right
now if you’re dealing with any anger you get kind of really hot you need to cool
your body off by incorporating the sweet heavy dense taste so you can ground
yourself have a mango or a coconut they’re both cooling and kind of grounds
you back down the other taste is the bitter taste and the bitter is made up
of air and ether so there’s a lot of wind moving on this actually purifies
the blood so this taste is really good for the pitta dosha because the pitta
dosha rules the rakta dhatu and that blood so having that bitter taste is
actually going to cleanse and purify the blood which is really good because they
made in clear channels and then the last taste that the pitta dosha favors is the
astringent taste and that’s made up of air and earth so it’s stable but it also
has that air and kind of that ground that moving element so things like
legumes are really good for the astringent taste and they’ll kind of
help the keep moving but gain some stability at the
exact same time the three tastes that you want to avoid / limit if you’re dealing
with a pitta imbalance or you’re just a pitot dosha in general are the sour the
salty and the pungent taste the salty taste this is hugely aggravating for the
pitta dosha because it’s made up of the exact same elements so like increases
like that fire and water adding more fire and water that’s only going to
hugely aggravate the pitta dosha the pungent taste is very aggravating
because this has so much fire in it it just is too burning too hot for the
pitta dosha you want to cool it off with those opposing elements and then you
have the sour taste and that again holds that fire element so it’s too hot too
acidic for the pitta dosha and can cause inflammation so you want to avoid those
taste so for pitta dosha you want to focus on
the sweet the bitter and the astringent taste however you still need all six
tastes ideally incorporated into each meal but
you do need a full rounded balance so even if you have an imbalance
incorporating just a little bit of the other elements are necessary throughout
your day to have that full rounded balance but you want to focus on the
sweet the astringent and the bitter taste so if you have like a big like
taco bowl you want to focus on those three preferred taste by adding in more
of those elements and more of those taste and only adding a little of the
non-preferred taste just to have a full rounded fully ayurvedic six tastes.
so now getting into specific foods that are good for the pitta dosha for weight
loss and then the foods that are not so good for the pitta dosha and weight loss
so the pitta dosha because it has such a strong metabolism and such a strong
digestion it’s actually the best dosha to kind of have they have the largest
range of the foods that they can eat and compared to all the other doshas the
pitta dosha can consume a lot more of the other taste that the other two
cannot because it has such a strong digestive system however specifically
these are some benefits of each specific food list for the pitta dosha starting
with grains the best grains for pitta dosha are barley oats rice and wheat
oats are really good if you want to do an overnight oats or just slightly warm
them in the morning and add some cooling spices like fennel some moderate grains
that you want to limit are things like brown rice sweetener is the best
sweetener for the pitta dosha are maple syrup and rice syrup sweeteners that you
want to limit or avoid are things like table sugar the best oil for pitta dosha
is olive and coconut because these bring in a more cooling effect they’re
great for the pitta dosha oils you want to moderate are things like avocado corn
and sunflower fruits the best fruits for pitted dosha are apples
avocados blackberries blueberries coconut cranberries dates grapes dried
fruit pineapple prunes raspberries strawberries papaya mangoes these are
all really good for the pitta dosha pit I can pretty much have any type of fruit
they want except the ones that carry the sour taste so you want to limit things
like grapefruit oranges apricots limit some bananas and cherries and avoid all
those sour fruits as best as possible lemons limes limit them or use in
moderation the best vegetables for pitta dosha are sprouts artichokes asparagus
bell peppers broccoli Brussels sprouts cauliflower celery cilantro kale
mushrooms pumpkin seaweed squash and zucchini remember pitta dosha digest a lot of these much smoother but some vegetables you want to moderate if
you’re dealing strongly with an imbalance are things like beet carrot
corn eggplant garlic spinach tomatoes potatoes especially try and limit the
tomatoes and the garlic those are pungent and sour and will only aggravate
the pitta dosha nuts and seeds the best nuts and seeds are coconut pumpkin seeds
and sunflower coconut is great in that cooling effect moderate nuts and
seeds that you can consume are sesame seeds but you want to avoid almonds
peanuts Brazil nuts cashews pecans and pistachios legumes the best legumes for
a pitta dosha are black lentils chickpeas mung beans soybeans limit or moderate
kidney beans and pinto beans though I don’t recommend any dairy or meat
products dairy if you do consume it for the pitta dosha you can focus on things
like cottage cheese soft cheeses unsalted butter and a little ghee you
definitely want to avoid salted butter because of the extra salt any butter
milk hard cheeses frozen yogurt sour cream yogurt these are all super mucus
building and kind of only clog channels within your body you can always
substitute some plant milks like coconut milk is really good and hemp milk is
also really good not recommending any meat again for the pitta dosha but if
you do consume you want to focus on lighter whiter meats white chicken
freshwater fish shrimp white turkey and maybe some rabbit eggs are okay there
tried to shake you definitely want to avoid beef dark chicken duck egg yolks
because they’re so heavy salt water fish lamb pork salmon sardines tuna fish
moving into spices this is the biggest one for the pitta dosha because spices
mostly carry the pungent taste this is more limited for the pitta dosha the
best spices are cardamon chamomile coconut coriander dill fennel peppermint
spearmint and turmeric these are all semi neutral or have a more cooling effect
which is great for the pitta dosha some things you can moderate in your spices
are basil bay leaf black pepper cinnamon cumin ginger and oregano you definitely
want to avoid cayenne clove garlic and mustard seeds these are
way too hot for the pitta dosha and any imbalances especially if you’re looking
for a diet for weight loss beverages the best beverages are hibiscus dandelion or
chicory team wheatgrass juice and coconut water cooling effect you can
have some chamomile – it’s really good some things you can moderate our black
tea and diluted fruit juices so add a little bit of water into those fruit
juices to dilute them and make sure they’re natural you definitely want to
avoid alcohol coffee spicy herbal teas and tomato juice those are too acidic
too stimulating for the pitta dosha and will only aggravate it especially if
you’re looking for a diet to aid in weight loss so this was all about the
pitta dosha diet for weight loss and the pitta food list so a pitta dosha it’s
made up of fire and water so carries a lot of sharp oily flowing like qualities
and for the foods you want to bring in those opposing elements we want to focus
on the sweet the bitter and the astringent taste because those have a
lot more air and a lot more grounding in them those earthy elements they’ll kind
of stabilize the pitta dosha so you want to focus on the sweet bitter and
astringent this was all about the specific foods if you want to look at
