What You Eat Is What You Are
In the practice of Yoga we see many people who are strictly vegetarian and take great care into what they eat. This blog is not about promoting vegetarianism, instead I am going to talk about the benefits of eating healthy, and how it can help you in your yoga practice.
The benefits of eating healthy can best be seen in the country of Japan. This is a country that enjoys one of the longest life expectancy in the world. Their population gets to live for a long time. Of course, medicine also has helped them live for a long time, but their diet is also a key component of their longevity.
The Japanese diet is low on fats and includes a lot of fish. Not deep fried fish, but simple fish dishes, including the famous sushi which is just raw fish. I am not suggesting that you need to eat raw fish or that you need to only vegetables to have a healthy diet.
All I am suggesting is that you avoid the saturated fats such as the ones found in deep fried food, in order to start to enjoy a better diet. Also, high quantities of sugar is not good for your body, try to minimize these as much as you can.
Once you are able to eat with less fat and less sugar you will see how you body has more energy and how you will be able to better practice your Yoga lessons. Having energy and being able to be productive in your daily routine should be your main goal when you decide to eat healthily.
