Greetings everyone,

Greats posts, just thought I'd add my two cents worth. Before I began practicing yoga I loved a good BBQ steak as much as most out here in the islands BBQ is a part of life. One of the first changes I noticed about my body after beginning to practice yoga was that my appetite changed. I found that I didn't want to eat meat anymore. It was sort of strange...because..I found that I'd go to BBQs and smell the BBQ'd ribs or chicken and used to love this food...what's happening to me? I want vegetables! My body started changing on it's own without any real effort from me. I experimented with this. A few times I ate the meat even though I really didn't want to- I woke up during the night with terrible joint pain and felt absolutely sick to my stomach, so much so that I did a complete colon cleanse ..I had to to feel better. I experimented with this a few times just because I was curious ....was this just my imagination? It happens every time I eat meat. I don't know if anyone else has had similar experiences...I do eat fish-and eggs sometimes...I eat a lot of tofu and vegetables. And I drink a lot of tea....Japanese green tea and Indian chai....

My point was that after becoming a yogini my appetite changed...without any real I just followed what my body was telling me....I didn't, in the beginning, know about yogic diets and eating it was interesting to me to read (after several months of practice when I first started yoga) that many people that practice yoga don't eat body just went in that direction naturally....
