The Kapha Stress Type

According to the ancient medical science of Ayurveda, there are three unique types of stress: Vata, Pitta and Kapha.

Reduce your intake of the following foods:
  • Heavy foods (fried food, creamy sauces, cheese)
  • Processed sugars (cookies, candy, sodas)
  • High-sugar fruits (bananas, mangos, grapes, cherries)
Avoid overeating—keep an eye on portion size
