(an excess of fire)

PittaIf you are born with an excess of pitta you are lucky enough to be able to digest pretty much anything you eat and have a strong metabolism. You have a good constitution and lots of energy and a sharp mind. You are determined, driven, competitive, courageous and organised. You are a doer. Most Pitta people have a medium build, a good complexion and sleep deeply (unless stressed which happens often). You are great orators, motivators and leaders but are also the soldiers and athletes of society. You are a clear thinker and have a great memory. You do, however, need to monitor your tendency towards stress and anger and keep cool, on all levels.
