Kapha Body Type Diet


Ayurvedic medicine considers your diet to be the best way to keep your body type in balance and fight disease and aging. The Kapha body type is typically the largest with wide hips and shoulders.

Kapha body type should favour warm cooked foods and hot beverages. Focus on cooking with lots of spices, eating large amount of vegetables, and high fiber foods such as legumes (phaliyan).

Kapha people should avoid oil/fats, sweets, frozen desserts (such as ice cream) and salt as much as possible due to their sluggish digestion.
