What eating habits will make me happier?

What type of diet are you? Take the test!

Everyone is unique and yet most of them can be assigned to a certain type of diet. This also has an impact on our eating habits and our health. Take the test!

What is healthy and what is not - at least in theory, most people know that. How much of the knowledge is actually implemented is extremely different. But why actually?

One person cannot eat whole-grain bread, the other shudders when he thinks of porridge, and the third simply needs his meal to be happy. A varied whole food diet is the basis for a healthy diet (see Trend Clean Eating). But over time it has been shown that many of the recommendations are too general and do not appeal to a large number of people. From these experiences three types were developed: the sensation type, the movement type and the relaxation type. The aim of this classification is the so-called "type-appropriate diet", which simply fits better to our preferences and idiosyncrasies and thus simplifies a healthy diet.

Sensation type

description

The sensation type is creative and full of ideas. He quickly becomes enthusiastic about new things and tackles immediately. However, the initial enthusiasm is usually quickly followed by a phase of disillusionment - moods can change quickly. Often the sensation type also reacts impulsively and tends to be nervous.

This also affects the digestion of the sensation types. They tend to be underweight rather than overweight. Your appetite and thirst is irregular; stress tends to suppress both. In Ayurveda, "VATA" corresponds to the sensation type.

recommendation The type of sensation should pay particular attention to regularity, tolerance and enjoyment when eating. In the morning, warm cereal porridges made from oats or millet provide lasting energy for the day. Whole grains are healthy, but the sensation type should be finely ground. Raw food is rather difficult to digest for this type; instead, plenty of steamed vegetables such as carrots, pumpkin or potatoes should be served on the plate. Soups are also very suitable. You can use cream, butter or oil, because fat helps the sensation type to absorb nutrients better.

It is also important to drink a lot, preferably water or herbal teas - coffee, on the other hand, is not very suitable as it stirs up the sensation type even more.

Movement type

description The movement type is a dynamic and determined doer. He likes to tackle new challenges in a systematic and organized manner. The guy also has good leadership qualities - albeit often paired with impatience and a tendency to get annoyed.

Digestion usually goes smoothly with the exercise type. His feeling of hunger and thirst is very pronounced. Despite his propensity for eating too much, this guy has no problems with obesity and rarely has intolerances. In Ayurveda, "PITTA" corresponds to the movement type.

recommendation

Eating people should take time to eat their meals and chew well. Then foods rich in fiber and raw vegetables such as vegetables, legumes, whole grain products and fruit are particularly suitable for them. Hearty and well-seasoned dishes (but not too much salt!), Also rich in carbohydrates, are very well tolerated by the exercise type.

Fatty and very protein-rich foods are less suitable.

Relaxation type

description

The relaxation type is a resting pole. He is consistent and reliable and does not particularly like change. He takes on new things slowly, but with a lot of care and very carefully. In addition, the relaxation type is characterized by its tolerant and helpful, "motherly" manner.

The digestion of the relaxation type is rather sluggish, he likes to eat a lot and tends to be overweight. In Ayurveda, "KAPHA" corresponds to the relaxation type.

recommendation

Relaxation types are connoisseurs. Sweet, hearty and greasy are often served here. Relaxation types should focus more on their digestive performance and eat more easily. For breakfast, for example, fruit or crispbread with a fruity, not too sweet spread is ideal. At lunchtime, before the main meal, it can be a raw vegetable salad that catches the greatest appetite.

Meat and sausage should only be eaten in small quantities. Apple chips, vegetable sticks or wholemeal biscuits are ideal for when you are hungry.
