One of the five principles of yoga is diet. Think of your body as an instrument through which you can play the music of the universe. Like any instrument, you want to keep it well cared-for. By eating healthy -- vegetables, fruits, whole grains and limited (or no) meat products -- you will develop a stronger leaner body, especially as you practice your yoga technique. Yoga also has many physical benefits, including a leaner body, a straighter posture and more defined muscle tone. With all this in mind, it's easy to see why so many choose to use yoga for weight loss and generally better living.
