Kṣudhita (क्षुधित) refers to “being hungry”, mentioned in verse 3.51 of the Aṣṭāṅgahṛdayasaṃhitā (Sūtrasthāna) by Vāgbhaṭa.— Accordingly, “[...] the choler accumulated in the rainy season gets irritated in autumn. [...] When hungry [viz., kṣudhita], one shall turn to bitter, sweet, astringent, and light food, rice, mung-beans, white sugar, Emblic myrobalans, wild snake-gourds, honey, and game; to water (that is) heated by the beams of the hot-rayed one (and) cooled by the beams of the cold-rayed one, [...]”.

Note: Kṣudhita [kṣudhitaḥ]—“when hungry” has been retained in its medial position and consequently referred only to laghu, although it belongs to the whole sentence.—yin-pa (for yaṅ-ba) in NP is a corruption.
