If you do yoga, you should know that proper nutrition is one of its important conditions. If the person is excessively load your stomach, this not only leads to the appearance of extra weight, but also to poor health. Therefore, yoga teaches us not only to take the correct posture and control of breath, but wisely consume food.
Junk food overloads the stomach, so the execution of certain asanas can be difficult. But of course, that doesn't mean you have to starve. Yoga does not imply serious restrictions. There are only some recommendations that you might want to perform. The last meal should be at least 3 hours before the start of classes. Therefore, it is best to do yoga early in the morning. After a workout is recommended not to eat for about an hour.
After exercising it is recommended to eat foods containing a large amount of calcium and potassium. For example, a banana with milk or vegetable salad with fatty cheese. Your daily diet should include fish low-fat varieties and legumes, because these foods are the source of protein.
It is advisable not to consume fatty foods, fried, spicy. Try to abandon the sauces (especially mayonnaise), caramel, fast food, snacks, pastries, chewy sweets. These products do not give the body any nutrients.
One of the teachings of yoga says that the stomach should be filled to two thirds food, one-fourth of the drinks, and the last quarter should remain empty for the free gases in the process of digestion. So get up from the table with a sense of light starvation.
The main meal should be for a time from 9 am to 13 PM. It was during these hours the digestive organs work best. The last meal should be no later than 19 o'clock in the evening, because later on the human body are already configured to rest.
Some time after the start of classes you may notice that your preferences in food changed. And this is perfectly normal, since your body is normalized. Many people say that they have practically ceased to eat meat and salt. Therefore, do not particularly address the issue of nutrition. The time will come, and you just won't want to eat junk food.
