Yoga and Nutrition
 Yoga - not a course prescribed by your doctor. And it is not strictly painted a system of exercises under the supervision of a personal trainer. For someone yoga - just charge, for others - a way of life. There are no strict rules and commandments. But there's recommendations.

There are many varieties of this ancient doctrine, in which you can meet different requirements for food, but for the most part, they are advisory in nature.

Coaches yoga will not make you go on a diet. You are free to eat as yourself wish. But people who are actively practicing yoga, deep into its philosophy, which often leads to a radical change in lifestyle. This also applies to food. Many fans of this doctrine gradually give up eating meat and become a vegetarian, raw food diet is often practiced. However, the choice is always individual.

Furthermore, the usefulness of the food from the viewpoint of yoga decreases its thermal treatment. Indian supporters of the meat is advised to give up, as well as from animal products. According to their doctrine, animal food contributes to the development of aggression in man. In addition, the structure of the digestive system, teeth suggests a closer approximation to a human herbivorous species. Meat and dairy products are harder digested and quickly wear out the body. However, the use of a particular food - not just a habit. It may be dictated by genetic predisposition, lifestyle, culture, etc. Therefore, change your diet gradually, watching the reaction of the organism.
