There is the term hot foods by hunters and there is warm foods by Chinese medicine and Ayurveda ancient Indian medicine. They are based constitutionally but in cases seasonally, for example you generally want to have cooler foods in the summer and warmer in winter and this can be literal as in salads or less literal like cumin or aloe, there are 3 main constitutions vata, pita, and kapha
Vata is generally smaller build, tendency to be on the thinner side
Pita is lean, medium build and muscular
Kapha is larger build muscular, and tendency to get chubby
Vata individuals tend to be too "cold" and generally need Warmer fattier foods with more protein and less carbs. Highly warming foods include ginger and spices
Pita individuals are too "hot" generally need more carbohydrates less starch though, less fat.
Kapha individuals go with the season and need less carbs and fat and more protein.
My mother is an Ayurvedic doctor so I had a lot of exposure to it in my teens and thought it was total bull but quite frankly when I don't listen to her Ayurvedic diet guidances I feel like **** so I just go with it, lol. As for dogs, I guess the principles could be transferred, I never seen if been used though. Sent from Petguide.com Free App
