Question: I heard Srila Prabhupada telling that it is a good mistake for a young person to eat a lot. But when we eat more, we need to spend more time on our body maintenance like sleeping. Also, on another side Rupa Goswami says, vaco vegam manaso krodha vegam, jihva vegam udaropasta vegam. So how do we reconcile these two ideas?

Jayapataka Swami: You see you can eat as much as you do service. If you do a lot of service, a lot of physical work for Krsna, you can eat more! If you do like office work, you don’t do much physical exertion, then it is not good to eat a lot! I may speak more. Usually Srila Prabhupada advised people to eat light at night so that they can get up early and have a sound sleep. So we take a large, a good breakfast, a good lunch and eat a little light at night. Hare Krsna!
