संस्कृतम्

जीवनस्य लक्ष्यमेव संस्कृतस्य वर्धनम्

अन्नेन पूरयेत् अर्धं

अन्नेन पूरयेत् अर्धं तोयेन तु तृतीयकम्।
उदरस्य तुरीयंशं सम्रक्षेत् वायुचारणे॥५-२२॥
— घेरण्डसंहितायां पञ्चमोऽध्यायः
annena pūrayet ardhaṁ toyena tu tṛtīyakam|
udarasya turīyaṁśaṁ samrakṣet vāyucāraṇe||5-22||
— gheraṇḍasaṁhitāyāṁ pañcamo’dhyāyaḥ

Alternative version (thanks to Chandrasekar Raghu):
पूरयेत् अन्नेनार्धं तृतीयम् उदकेन तु।
वायोस्सञ्चरणार्थाय चतुर्थम् अवशेषयेत्॥
pūrayet annenārdhaṁ tṛtīyam udakena tu|
vāyossañcaraṇārthāya caturtham avaśeṣayet||

Half of the stomach should be filled with food; [the] third part (¼th) with liquid
The fourth part should be left free for gases to move around.
