Dincharya & Intermittent Fasting in Ayurveda

What is Dincharya in Ayurveda? Exactly as the term refers to, Din means daily and charya means routine. Dincharya starts with waking up early during Brahma mahurat. 

Which time period is Brahmamahutra- 45 mins before sunrise. So if the sun rises at 6 am in your region and you wake up at 5:15 am also, you have woken up at Brahma mahurat. You should start your day with cleansing, massaging, meditation, and yoga.

In the present world, IF or Intermittent Fasting has become very popular. But in Dincharya, the period of fasting has been defined very clearly in a day as per the doshas effect during that particular period. 

One should start fasting after sunset and open it after 13-14 hours around 8-9 am. Our digestion slows down after sunset, therefore an early light dinner is apt. I know a lot of people start their IF late and go on fasting for a major part of the day. However, according to Ayurvedic dosha Dincharya, metabolism starts to drop after 2 pm. So to get effective results from your IF, follow a routine that helps you and your digestion process to slow down as per the circadian rhythm. 

Also, it is very important that you listen to your body. Ayurvedic diet and lifestyle always believe in individualism and respecting one’s body. If you feel acidic, excessively hungry, or low in energy please avoid long-duration fasting. You should definitely avoid eating after sunset but you can close your fast early in the morning.

Slowly integrate Dincharya into your life. For optimum wellness follow an Ayurvedic lifestyle with an Ayurvedic Diet Plan and flow with the circadian rhythm of your body.
