Oh, I see.  I'm not as familiar with containers of fruit as I am with cans.  So 
that's what caused the glitch in my memory.  Anyway, what you say about 
samadosha brings up a question I've had for quite a while:  if one pacifies 
kapha, for example, are vata and pitta automatically increased?

No, I didn't say I ate a whole can.  I said I went to the store and 
bought a container of pineapple slices because I didn't want to cut up a 
*whole* pineapple.  The fresh foods section where the packaged fresh 
lettuce, spinach, etc. also has small containers of fresh sliced 
fruit.   Much less messy than cutting up a whole pineapple and a small 
container cheaper too.  Also a whole pineapple might have spoiled before 
I used it up.  This was a good way to test.  I only ate a slice (cube) 
or two at a time.

I first read heard about returning the body to prakriti a few years back 
in several articles.  Perhaps samadosha was assumed by newbie ayurveda 
followers.  I recall one of the instructors at Dr. Lad's school telling 
me that samadosha wasn't so wonderful as people with that prakriti still 
had problems and correcting them often proved difficult.
