Eat light, balanced meals. It is best to avoid consuming raw or uncooked foods like salad and sushi; greasy, pungent or heavily seasoned foods like french fries and barbeque; and fish without scales or fins like catfish and shellfish. Avoid chocolate, alcohol, and coffee. No smoking. Oily and fatty foods create Dampness. Spicy foods, chocolate, and coffee generate Heat. Alcohol makes both Heat and Dampness more severe.
