Improving Your Diet through Yoga with Weights

When you do yoga-with-weights exercises, you explore your body. You discover how to relax certain muscles and flex others; you retrace the pathways of your nerves and find out how different muscle groups work in consort when you balance; you feel your breath bring life-giving oxygen to your body; and you discover many new feelings and sensations.

It may seem far-fetched, but yoga with weights, an exercise program, can actually improve your diet. If the yoga-with-weights program has one theme, it's this: Listen to your body so you hear what it's trying to tell you. Yoga with weights helps you get in touch with your body. You gain not only an awareness of how your body reacts to the movements you make with the weights, but also calm and inner composure, which can be helpful in preventing nervous eating. You no longer experience the unnatural hunger spasms caused by anxiety because your thoughts are more in tune with the health needs of your body.

We encourage you to understand where your stress or fatigue comes from and how it affects your eating. If your exercise goal is to lose weight, you can lose it without having to count calories or measure food portions. You lose it because losing weight isn't an objective in and of itself; it's a side effect of the feeling of well-being, the increased movement, and the exercise you get from practicing yoga with weights.

If you concentrate on the principles of yoga with weights and adhere to your goals, when you're hungry and you need to eat more, you'll make better choices about what to eat. It may take some time, but eventually you'll begin to select from foods that give you the energy to do the exercises without the excess calories. You'll notice a lighter feeling overall because your body doesn't have to work as hard to digest food or recover from having eaten processed, fat-laden, unnatural food. You'll have the firsthand experience and the confidence in yourself to know when you can eat with abundance from the right sources. Your yoga-with-weights self-awareness training can help guide you to the right foods.
