winter nutrition

winter nutrition,

n in Tibetan medicine, the adjustment of an individual's eating habits to cold weather; it is believed that the absorptive and digestive (schara and badahan) functions of the body are in balance and are prepared to meet the increased seasonal demands of supplying energy from the calories within food. It also thought that the excretory functions related to chi are decreased as a measure to further conserve energy. As a rule, individuals are instructed to consume a wide selection of foods more often, although small quantities are encouraged to continually sustain the digestive process and meet the body's nutritional needs. See also chi (Tibetan), schara, and badahan.
