Yoga diet helps in setting an ideal weight and achieving spiritual and emotional balance.
Yoga diet does not insist on planning a complicated menu or calorie tracking, nor does it ask you to stay hungry. Yoga diet refers to vegetarianism, as the principles of yoga regard Sattvic foods to be the ideal diet. These foods create new energy, calm mind and there by enables to use physical, mental and spiritual talents, besides being nutritious and easily digestible.
Sattvic products include fresh fruits and vegetables, cereals, beans, natural fruit juice, milk, honey, butter and pure water. An ideal yoga diet focuses vegetarianism compiled of simple, natural, pure and effortlessly digestible foods that encourages the overall well-being and health.
The food cycle depends on the source of energy received from the Sun that helps in nourishing plants and hence it is believed to have vital life force, besides promoting life. Owing to this reason, the animal meat value is considered to be inferior by nature, albeit being a strong source of nutrition. Natural foods such as vegetables, fruits, grains, nuts and seeds all have varying essential nutrients in differing proportions and quantities.
These are considered as they are getting easily absorbed, making the best sources of protein. Yoga practitioners have listed fish and meat among injurious food believing that death fear pervades in every animal cell while being slaughtered. However, traditional yoga diet concentrates on lacto vegetarian and hence avoids eggs and animal meats inclusive of fish.
In reality, modern research as well has given evidences that vegetarians are in better shape than non-vegetarians as the required proteins are obtainable from dairy products, nuts and legumes than that is available from fish and meat. Legumes, seeds, nuts and dairy products give sufficient proteins.
Yoga diet is appropriate with lacto vegetarian and this means it is composed of non-animal foods with the exception of milk and milk-derived products like yoghurt, cheese and butter. The research studies also state that a vegetarian diet is the best for overall health as meat proteins consume longer time to digest and are tough on the liver and kidneys.
Relying on a vegetarian diet is not tough as there are adequate tasty alternatives to support the digestive system and health. However, red meats need not be cut down overnight and this can be done gradually by opting for white meats. Similarly, finding nutritious and tasty vegetarian foods will assist in relinquishing poultry, eggs and fish.
Eating fresh vegetables and fruits, and also cooking vegetables without destroying their enzyme and vitamin content with an inclusion of a few raw vegetables are recommended as yoga diet. Having whole grain foods and drinking nearly 2 liters of water everyday is mandatory.
Stepping up by taking fluids having fruits and vegetable juices, herb trees, milk and vegetable milks is also suggested. Including soya, coconut, rice milk and abundant water rich foods are the best yoga diet, while steering clear of foods that are processed, sugar, white flour, fast foods, tinned foods, bottles, jars and pre-cooked meals is recommended.
Following a yoga diet does not compulsorily demand yoga practicing, but it focuses on the proven diet to reinforce a strong body and mind. Yoga insists in having a well-balanced diet to remain energized and alert throughout the day and is hence predominantly vegetarian comprising of simple, pure and natural foods.
AuthorKaren 3 years ago from U.S. SmartYoga: Ha, yes, yoga affects us on many levels. I find that yoga affects me in many ways and really changes my life for the better! AuthorKaren 3 years ago from U.S. But in my late 50s, I can do a lot more physically than many people younger than me, from my many years of practicing Iyengar Yoga.
I am old school sixties great grandma and I find this a wonderful approach to a way of sharing yoga. I set up a lens in hopes more people would be inspired to teach. It is a great way to deepen ones own practice.
AuthorKaren 4 years ago from U.S. And Downward Facing Dog pose is such a great pose to stretch and strengthen the whole body. I’m another one who WANTS to do yoga — in my mind, but thinks she can never get past any pose named ‘downward facing dog’! I’ll start with abdominal squeezes.
Very informative and very helpful. AuthorKaren 4 years ago from U.S. Echo Phoenix: At some point you might find it easier to settle into a routine for a yoga practice. If you haven’t tried yoga classes, I’ve found that it’s easier for people to stay in a routine if they have a class to go to.
Great info to add to my quest to get fit and healthy this new year.!
I have noticed that when I do yoga afterwards I am in a calmer mood and also I sleep better! Very interesting Lens. Great info.Well articulated and wonderful format. Not to often do I find particular exercises for cleansing! I came to yoga quite late in life but I found these detoxifying poses particularly useful.
What a great lens! I really enjoyed going through it. You included such valuable reading information and videos. Very informative lens: thank you so much. I know that yoga improves your health in many ways, but I didn’t know it could help you detox your body – amazing!
I love your lenses! Thank you for the information! Doing Yoga during a detox program just makes sense. Great lens to inspire my Yoga practice and get me thinking about a summer detox. Most definitely – very informative!
Blessed by a SquidAngel! Great lens. For so many years I practiced many of these poses at home. Unfortunately, once I had a child and all the running around that having kids, a job, etc. do to us I stopped. I have only been back for about a month and I cannot tell you how amazing I am starting to feel.
Of course eating healthy and all the other things are important, but sadly, not everyone has the time to prepare the healthiest meals nowadays. I started my yoga class, my body feels 100% better than it did. Thanks for this. I’ll be checking out more of your lenses.

AuthorKaren 5 years ago from U.S. We have plenty of yoga teachers here too, but it’s not possible to make a handsome living teaching yoga. As I say here in this article, yoga assists the body’s natural detoxification process. The body can do it all by itself if we eat a healthy diet, and breathe clean air, but sometimes (or many times, depending on the person), the body needs extra help.
Yoga poses help this process. Thanks for your comment! When I was YEARS younger healthy body and mind meant healthy life style like eating right amount and kind of foodand doing NORMAL things. As we profess that YOGA is the way to good life detox and whatever, I laugh.
For me, yoga has helped me learn to slow down and be body-aware. Very nice information about detoxing through yoga poses.
I’ll definitely give them a try. I love doing Yoga. Great lens, gonna facebook and pin it to my lyme support facebook group! We could all use some detoxing for sure. I love yoga and found relief when my lower back went out. It was then I discovered that it’s great not only for ”detox” belly issues but also for respiratory.
It’s amazing how much it clears your system. I only do about 10 mins a day and its awesome! This is a very good lens! I love yoga so much. There are so many benefits and I think more people should really try it.
I never associated Yoga with detoxification before reading your lens. Great information especially on the lymphatic system. For about a year I have had some issues with that, so I am looking forward to practicing some of these poses as well. Very comprehensive lens with excellent resources and links for learning the health benefits of practicing Yoga.
I will incorporate ”Yoga for Seniors-Aging well with Yoga” in to my exercise routine. I love this lens. I am going try some of the moves here. I should be doing more Yoga. Especially when I see the benefits to the lymphatic system. Love your lens. Thank you. I’ll have to incorporate some of these asanas into my practice!
I have only been doing yoga for 5 or 6 months. I enjoy these stretches but did not know they help to detox the body.
Good information. Stopping by to give Christmas cheer and a blessing. Sjoe, I will definitely be back after the Christmas holidays, I will need to do as much detoxing as possible after all the junk I know I am going to eat! Thanks for the videos! Very informative.
I look forward to more Yoga lens from you. Very interesting, I knew yoga was good for many things but didn’t know detoxing was one of them! Never knew yoga twists were so important – I’ll definitely be doing those more often now! Excellent lens. Helpful information. Yoga is an ecxellent way to keep your body and mind healthy.
Nice site. It is very accessible and great information. This is an awesome lense! I just bookmarked it! Thank you so much for the information, I learned a lot. Thank you so much for hard work ! AuthorKaren 6 years ago from U.S. I’m glad you found the lens useful! Yes, doing a quiet yoga practice in the evening often helps people to sleep better.
You have a great lens here with lots of information on yoga. Though I haven’t done yoga in along time, you have renewed my interest in it. I have trouble sleeping and I heard that doing yoga in the evening will help me relax. The detailed information about the yoga poses and the videos of the yoga are very helpful.
Thanks for sharing the nice lens. Thanks for another great yoga lens, well done!
I’m planning to do some yoga in July when I completed my oversea assignment. Thanks for the tips and videos! I love yoga, it’s relaxing and satisfying to stretch out the muscles. This page serves as a good, informative reminder of how it heals and takes out the toxins.
Yoga is indeed a major healer. It is a therapy program which people of most skill levels can use even with reduced mobility levels. You have many excellent yoga lenses which will be of great benefit to people. This is really interesting. I knew that yoga is supposed to be good you but I never realized that it was actually a detoxing tool too.
Good collection of video.Such a yoga is helpful exercise. Blessed by a SquidAngel. Yoga is more than just being flexible then. This lens has been a real eye opener. I’m going to give yoga a try. I don’t really know much about Yoga; but what you say about it’s benefits sounds very logical.
I love yoga too! Lots of ideas and a great lens! I love yoga and the way it makes me feel, more relaxed and in tune with myself. I recently took it up again so I am taking all the advic I can get! Lots of ideas and a great lens! I love yoga and the way it makes me feel, more relaxed and in tune with myself.
I recently took it up again so I am taking all the advic I can get! I’m going to try some of these out, thank you.
I started getting back into a yoga routine again after 4 years, I feel I need something to balance out all the stress that has been coming into my life. I’ve been thinking about yoga. It’s a new year maybe it’s time to start a great new adventure. Thanks for the information. I didn’t realise Yoga was a form of detoxing, I had planned to do a bit more in the new year so this has been really inspiring.
Yoga is said to be the best tool for detoxification. This is really a neat lens. I already like yoga, and I didn’t know it could be used for detoxing!
