Color Me Healthy

KAMALA THIAGARAJAN

Follow the Rainbow

Over the years, health gurus and food planners have devised some of the world’s most impossible diets. Many of these have the most miniscule portion sizes, while others require an abacus in order for you to count the calories of every morsel that passes through your lips. Some other diets are downright shocking, recommending you to stick to only one food group to the exclusion of all else—such as the cabbage soup or the grapefruit diet.

Rarely is a diet plan simple and sensible, and this is the main reason for the failure of fad diets. They simply do not translate into a permanent lifestyle change—which is why the extra pounds merely vanish temporarily, only to pile back on with a vengeance once you’ve been weaned off the diet. However, surprisingly enough, experts are now touting a diet plan that finally focuses on good health as the building block of a wholesome body—one that invigorates and satiates instead of leaving you tired, irritable and dull. Welcome to the colorful menu of the rainbow diet!

The rainbow diet operates on the principle that food, color and health are inter-related. With the focus on fresh-colored foods, experts and practitioners recommend that we pile our plates with a rainbow assortment of naturally-colored foods—this is the key to providing your body with the crucial ingredients it needs. When Colette Garside, a nutritionist and color therapist, left school at 16, she went to Catering College for 3 years and trained as a chef and hotel manager. "During this time I had to understand (the concepts of) nutrition and plan menus that had both color and dietary value," she says. Colette adds, "This helped me realize that by eating a rainbow diet you actually get all the mineral salts you need. However, you must ensure that the quality of food is organic and well prepared. It is important to eat fruit and vegetables as much as possible with the skin, raw or lightly steamed."

Food, Color and Health

Our bodies require fat, proteins and carbohydrates to function. These are the very basic macronutrients needed to sustain life. Most fad diets focus only on these, completely ignoring the fact that we also need (albeit in lesser quantities) vital minerals, vitamins and salts, classified as micronutrients, in order to survive. "Any diet that asks you to eliminate a particular food group does more harm than good," says Deepshikha Agarwal, dietician and sports nutritionist. "The rainbow diet is unique because here one can mix different colored fruits and vegetables, making a meal palatable, attractive while adding a nutrient rich variety. It also aids in permanent weight loss and includes foods rich in antioxidants, which h...

Food Guidelines for VATA Type People


-->
Dec 2007 - Jan 2008, Vol. 1 No. 4 >> Sync of Health >> Food Guidelines in Ayurveda

-DR. HARISH VERMA

According to Ayurveda, diet is the most important tool for achieving balance of bio-energies (doshas). The Ayurvedic physician generally designs individualized diets for patients, based on various factors such as age, climate, place, the strength of the body tissues and the digestive fires, and the level of ama (toxins) in the body; the doshic tendencies that need to be balanced at a given time also being factors that affect dietary do’s and don’ts.

For
VATA type people regularity in meal times is important. They can use more oil in cooking their foods than the other two doshas and experience better digestion if they limit their intake of raw foods. All dairy products are good for Vata with hard cheese being eaten sparingly. Well-cooked oats and rice are good for Vata because they are not too drying when cooked with plenty of water and butter or ghee. While cooked vegetables are best, the occasional salad with a good oily or creamy dressing is fine. Astringent and drying fruits, such as cranberries, pomegranates and raw apples should be avoided. Fruit should always be eaten by itself on an empty stomach.
