Pitta Problems

I've been picking away at a number of Ayurveda books over the last year or so. All the questionaires I have filled out have indicated that Pitta is my primary dosha. It's becoming increasingly clear to me that my Pitta is actually off the charts. I believe I am experiencing symptoms of Pitta overload. The worst part is I know what I need to do about it but I don't really want to do it! In order to get things under control I should immediately abstain from coffee, beer, and spicy food. I should quit eating catsup, which I put on almost everything, and I should focus on Pitta-cooling foods. We're talking about major lifestyle modifications here. I guess I should at least pick one of these things are get started.
