5 Healthy Food Ideas To Eat Before Yoga

"I want to heve a sexy body so that i can wear bikinis while i am go to the beach!" To have perfect body is now become a popular topic no matter you are older or younger. Diet is become a fasion. Whether you’re new to yoga or just looking for a new type of practice to enjoy, there are some things you should consider before heading to your mat for your regular practice. Yoga’s not just a fabulous way to improve your mind and body, it’s also one of the most recommended activities for enhancing your digestion. Digestion is an important part of our health and affects how we feel on so many levels, so it’s important to eat to support our digestion, especially before we head off to exercise. Yoga involves lots of turns and twists, so you’ll need to be sure that your pre-workout eats don’t leave you bloated, light-headed, or in a food-coma. You also shouldn’t head off to yoga class without eating, since that disrupts your blood sugar levels and can lower your metabolism, which leads to muscle loss. 

Food and Nutrition Articles

Proper diet is fundamental for sustaining good health and mental development. Yoga categorizes three types of foods according to their qualities. These qualities correspond to the three Gunas - Sattvic, Rajasic and Tamasic.
  Tamasic Foods such as meat, fish, eggs, alcohol, preserved food and old, reheated food, makes us sluggish and lethargic. Rajasic food is excessively spicy food, which causes us to be restless and agressive. Rajasic qualities also arise from an excessive consumption of coffee or chocolate. Sattvic foods however, give rise to a balanced and harmonious sense of wellbeing in both body and mind. sattvic food is found in a lacto-vegetarian, whole food diet which includes grains, vegetables, pulses, fruit, nuts, seeds, milk, and organic milk products.   Vegetarian food detoxifies, cleans and purifies the body and increases our resistance to illness.
