HABIT TIP #3: Avoid Snacking
How: Allow at least 3 hours between meals (ideally 4-6 hours). Avoid snacking between meals.
Why: In order for your digestive fire (agni) to be strong and able to fully digest the food you take in, you need to give it space to do its job and not overload it. Eating too frequently taxes digestion, causing food to putrefy in the digestive system, creating metabolic toxicity (ama) that inhibits proper functioning of the cells, causes inflammation and confuses the immune system.
