I tend to agree with maNi's observations.
I belive that we need to look deeper into what
the concepts are - sAtvik food is the goal.
The ahara niyamam text mentioned, in all probability, 
would have dealt with they types of food that were
familiar to srIvaishNavAs of south India during
that period, and mentions do's and dont's.

We can probably adapt that concept, and apply it
to our scenario, where we are spread all over the 
world, with numerous influences and advances/evolution
of the food that we eat.

The ISKCON movement, in my opinion, has done a 
remarkable job in adapting the concept to the
appropriate local conditions. Interested people
may visit their local ISKCOn temple, and can
easliy obtain information about their practices.
There are numerous books available through them,
that talks about food habits.
