If you are like most people, you have probably tried many different diets and have probably heard of the “yoga diet”. The yoga diet has been around for a long time but it is not widely known. In fact, there is little information available about this type of diet on the internet. I have spent a lot of time researching the topic and here is what I have learned.
What is the Yoga Diet?
The yoga diet is an eating plan that has been developed by yogis over the years to help them lose weight. This diet consists of eating foods that are high in protein and low in carbohydrates. It is very similar to the Atkins diet. You will eat only meat and fish and avoid all carbohydrates such as breads, pastas, potatoes, rice, beans, grains and fruits. Yogis believe that these types of food can cause digestive problems and interfere with your ability to practice yoga. Yogis also believe that these types of food are unhealthy and can lead to health problems such as diabetes and heart disease.
What is the Purpose of the Yoga Diet?
Yogis believe that the body needs protein to build muscle and repair damaged tissue. Yogis also believe that if they do not eat enough protein, their bodies will begin to store fat. They also believe that they need a healthy balance of carbohydrates so that their bodies can burn fat instead of storing it. If you follow the yoga diet, you will be able to lose weight and gain more energy.
