Imbalance AccumulatesImproper food and lifestyle causes balances to accumulate. Ayurveda shows you exactly which doshas and qualities will accumulate in your body. Once these doshas and qualities accumulate too much, they will begin to cause disease. You can reduce an imbalanced dosha or quality by removing things that aggravate it from your diet and lifestyle.
If you have a systemic imbalance of one of these doshas or qualities, Ayurveda would highly recommend that you remove, substitute or lessen the frequency of Chocolate. 'Chocolate' is likely to aggravate the following doshas and qualities.
Key: V = Vata, P = Pitta, K = Kapha. A slash through a dosha means it an aggravated dosha. To learn more about the symbols above, click on them.

|Frequent snacking||Refined sugar|
I've recently gone back to an ayurvedic diet - I first went on one 20 years ago & it seemed way too complicated to maintain. Now, it doesn't at all! The last diet I was trying was alkaline/raw, and I was having a chocolate desert:
2 Tbsp. coconut oil
2 Tbsp. raw cocoa
1 Tbsp. (scant) raw honey
1 Tbsp. (scant)raw agave syrup
It's like a truffle...
Is this really bad for a Vata/Pitta, or would it be ok once or twice a week?
