All Talk and No Action Sunday, December 28, 2008


It's been a week now !

Yet to find an answer to the "caution" by a well meaning friend -

Don't eat curd at night.

Why?

(With an air of knowledge) Don't you know? Ayurveda says so !

(I, sounding dumb) Achha? I didn't know that...kyun? kya buraai hai?

(With exasperation) Why do you ask so many questions ! Just stop eating it ok ! Not good for your health ! Aage teri marzi...

I hate conversations that end with...Aage teri marzi

It makes me sound like a petulant child who doesn't want to listen while the other party seems to come out as a saner and maturer voice !

Anyway, to cut a long story short, I love to eat yogurt - any and every time of the day.

Now, after this friend's argument I did set out to find reasons for not having yogurt at night.

All articles commenting on Ayurveda did advise against consuming yogurt at night. However, none threw any light on the reasons.

I would be very much obliged if any of you guys have an iota of information on this apart from the usual - raat ko thand lag jaayegi

Waiting in anticipation....with a cup of yogurt to devour...

@Ye manzilen - True, it does make me feel good. However, if it is unhealthy, then I should know...

@Devil Incarnate - I did read this at some place. However, I am not convinced about the digestion argument. People have loads of stuff late at night, far worse for metabolism and digestion than curd can ever be...

I still can't find an appropriate reason :(
