"(One) is not able (to sustain life) without diet even of endowed with medicine, that—is-why the diet is said to be the great medicament by Physician)".

The whole universe is made of Panchamahabhootas. So Panchabhautic food is taken to nourish the Panchabhootas of the body. lt is done in. terms of Dosha, Dhatu and Malaas in three ways—

1. The carbohydrates and fats yield calories for energy which are stored and used at the time of necessity.
2. The proteins are never stored in the body for future use but helps the construction of the tissues of the body.
3. Vitamins are essential for different metabolic processes including that of the utilization of above three components i.e. protein, fat and carbohydrates. Minerals form the essential constituents of various Dhatus.

Above are the modern way of classification of food, however Ayurveda do not go classifying the food in these Categories. It in described in terms of Rasa, Guna, Veerya and Vipak.

The nutritive value of different foods of vegetable and animal sources are described in number of chapters and finally another chapter in allocated for preparations to be made in the name of Kritannavarg.

Cure of disease is not merely achieved by medicine, but by Pathya Bhojan. Diet not only cures, but prevents diseases, if properly used, So it is the duty of physician to prescribe appropriate diet in any particular condition.

The book written by Dr. R. S. Gautam describes the details of different aspects of diet in ayurvedic classics. The diet according to doshik predominance, season and srotovaha disorders. In each chapter author has mentioned his own views in light of present dietary system and classical prescription. These dietary preprations not only affect physical health but psychological and emotional features also. Though the diet as a whole contains various nutrients, for physical, mental health & satisfaction but simultaneously certain intoxicants also which are to be avoided.

Modern era is an era of fast food. It is highly presumed that increased disorders of Hypertension, Diabetes and cardiac diathesis, fast food is a promising factor. Author has also included the fast food as diet in the whole scenario.

Scattered material regarding diets in different texts is also being presented in a compiled form in this book. The classical references in original form is again is a dignity of this book. Description of different diets & Dravyas in tabulated form make the book simple to grasp.

The extensive labour & vision of the author is really appreciable and I think this book will add to the present knowledge of dietary science in the growing demands of nutrition.

Dr. R. S. Gautam in a noted scholar and pediatrician in field Of Ayurveda and in engazed in teaching since years. I congratulate Dr. Gautam for his important contribution to the literature of Ayurveda particularly on the subject. I hope, this book would prove a useful guide for teachers, research workers and writers on this subject.


Dietetics are most important respects to provide fuel to the body for carring easy life style.

In the subject collection few words are equivocal and many of them translated in English with the help of dictionary and ideas developing in the mind regarding insufficient matter also included in the book. The subjective matter chiefly sorted out from ancient texts as Bhaisjya Ratnavali, Yogaratnakar Samhita, Charaka Samhita, Susuruta Samhita, Astanga Sangrha, Astanga Hridaya, Nighantu etc.

The matter of dietetics classically arranged as twelve classes of dietetics mentioned in Charaka samhita with inclusion of one important class as fast food which are most common food to eat today, here matter have categorized in the form of tabulation for easy convenience to readers. I especially made attention to readers of this book towards tips given regarding diets and regimen must be read before follow- up the dietetics.
