【Appropriate diet – Meditating on the faults of food】
There are three faults:
(1) 【the fault that arises from the causes of enjoyment: Contemplate how any colorful, aromatic, and good-tasting food whatsoever appears like vomit once you have chewed it and moistened it with your saliva. 】
(2) 【The fault that arises from digesting food: Contemplate how food produces such elements of the body as flesh and blood after it is digested in the middle or last period of the night. Contemplate how some food become feces and urine, and then remains in the lower part of the body; moreover, each day you have to excrete that. Think how many kinds of illnesses develop in connection with this food. 】
(3) 【The five faults that come from looking for food: The five are as follows:
1) The fault of procurement: While being tormented by heat and cold, you must make great effort in order to procure food and assemble its cause. If you do not procure it, you suffer sorrow and the like. Even if you do procure the food, you fear that it will be stolen or wasted, and then suffer because of taking great pains to guard it.
2) The fault of ruining close relationships: Even close relatives, such as fathers and sons, will dispute and fight with one another for the sake of food. 
3) The fault of insatiability: Kings and the like will go to war with each other and experience much suffering when their craving for food intensifies.
4) The fault of the lack of independence: Those who eat others' food experience much suffering when they fight with opponents on behalf of their leader.
5) The fault that arises from wrongdoing: Having amassed sins of body, speech, and mind for the sake of food and its causes, you remember your sins when you are dying, and die with regret. Moreover, after death, you fall into a miserable realm.
