Pitta is hot and oily so it wise for high Pitta-types to be conservative with their consumption of greasy foods. In addition, choosing spices, herbs, and condiments that have a cooling effect and help with the digestion of fat is useful.

Kapha is dull so it is useful to keep high kapha types mentally stimulated and physically active.
