"When it comes to Yoga and Nutrition, the most important Questions to ask are:
- how much
- what kind
- and when.
With a regular yoga practice, one develops an acute self-awareness that helps to make better dietary choices.
What is important to remember is that every body is unique and there is no one-fit-all model of nutrition: what works great for one person can seriously damage the other.
It is best not to have too much food before the yoga practice, but afterwards - followed by a big glass of water, a cooked and wholesome meal containing
- Carbs (for muscles)
- Protein (for overall Good body function)
- healthy Fats (from nuts and fruits) is important.
What helps is to lead a type of Nutritional Diary and see what foods feel light and energy-giving (eat more of that) and which foods make one drowsy, heavy, and worse - bloated and in pain (eat less of that)."
