"Man eats too much. This is admitted by all. Most of your diseases are due to over-eating. Your kind mother and grandmother have taught you over-eating from your childhood through their affection and indulgence. Even when you are not hungry you try to stuff your stomach by taking recourse to spices, chutneys, pickles. It is your tongue that deludes you and does too much havoc." Swami Sivananda, in his book `Health and Diet', published by Divine Life Society.
