The driven, ambitious, fiery nature of pitta can help us get a lot done, but it can also cause weight gain if we don’t eat with the seasons and do and eat less as we age. Typically the reasons behind weight gain in a Pitta person have a lot to do with the intense nature of their constitution. Pittas generally have strong metabolisms when they’re young, but that doesn’t carry on through the seasons of life.
