Say yes to Less

Trained in various energy sciences and life therapist, yoga guru Kevin AD advices living a true life of luxury lies in accessing the best results from our meals, as well as enjoying them in their full taste and flavour.

In today’s culture of excess, over indulgence in food can prove fatal an result in adverse effects, taking away all the benefits that we reap from it. The shift towards a holistic culinary experience is what the luxury consumer is also looking for rather than empty calories and expensive meals.  

The most widespread myth is that food keeps us alive and kicking and ensures a healthy and long life. However, it is exactly the other way round. The less and limited consumption of food is actually the secret to a long and healthy life. Few are aware of the fact that it is through food  that major infections and diseases can enter our bodies. Food, when taken in excess, or when undigested can remain and turn into rotten fungus, which can have an ill effect on the entire digestive track, respiratory system and other functions of the body.

 

If you have a pet dog at home you must have noticed that when he falls sick he stops eating at all and after some time he becomes hale and hearty he does not need an antibiotic to be cured. This is not only with dogs but most creatures. A few hours of fasting cleanses the entire system and flushes out any infections.

In today’s times, true luxury is not in imbibing rich foods, or exotic meals, but to regain the simplicity of our ancestors and to create a “nutrition versus addiction” ratio with every food product we consume. In the west mass consumerism has created industrialised meals but we must remember that Western communities also have larger body structures and stringer metabolism as they live in colder climates, and tend to be more outdoorsy than us.

In India, our ancient practices created a true balance of food, exercise and meditation, offering a planned way of life. The art of yoga was originated from India which puts a big stress on healthy and disease free living. However, yoga is not just about asanas, but is also a way of life. The fundamental of yoga narrates that we should eat 50 percent of our total body capacity and leave the rest of 50 percent for water and air respectively which helps us to maintain a perfectly running metabolism .

The human body needs much less to survive and is only overloaded by our desire to constantly satisfy cravings. You can live a longer life with flawless skin if you can curb on your taste buds. Life is beyond the Michelin starred restaurants and the search for exotic cuisines. Instead the true luxury of a perfect mind-body wellness is in creating a balance of nutrition and taste for your body, which comes with a certain degree of restraint and control.

The better results can be reaped if we change our habits of eating as well as our approach to basic nutrition. Moving to a lacto vegetarian lifestyle is advisable for true health and fitness, and is better achieved in a natural way than by spending money on expensive plastic surgeries or procedures. Mother Nature in all her abundance has already provided enough for us, and raw fruits and vegetables if integrated into our regular diet, are actually the best for us. Consume these as they are, or cook them with no spices or salt added, and you can still keep your taste buds happy. Any artificial articles in food may add to its taste but reduces the nutrition content.

Coming back to the point of not living by food alone supported by a strong logic that our body is made of energy or the vital force which keeps us running, the day energy gets exhausted no food and no sunlight can make us alive. A dead can never be made alive with supply of food. Let us choose health before taste for long life.
