When it comes to eating, we always worry about getting the right nutrients and it ends at pretty much that. We are asked to eat 5 vegetables and 3 fruits every day. We are asked to use smaller plates for portion control but something that is as much important if not more is the position in which you sit and eat. Do you know in Japan and China, it is an innate part of their culture to sit on the ground and eat and is also seen as a medium to wellness. Closer home, even Ayurveda recommends sitting on the floor while eating.
The truth is that the position in which you sit while eating affects the way your body will digest food. When you eat while lying down, it will digest food slowest, and when you eat while standing, it will digest it better than when you are sitting on a chair. But there is a position which works really well when it comes to digestion.
