The dietary recommendations are tailored to your specific imbalance, your digestive strength, your emotional state, your specific tolerances and intolerances, your cultural background and your daily responsibilities. Ultimately the goal is for you to be directed by your natural inclinations and tastes. So there is no need for great discipline or control.
