For one thing, it is realy cruel to animals.

Here is a documentary i like about the cruel way people today treat animals:

such a mean and cruel world we live in. so much violence and suffering. i have never managed so watch such a documentary till the end. just makes me sick and sad. every meat eater should see this!

Another reason to become vegetarian or at least to reduce meat consumption is that 70% of all the soya produced in the world and 30% of the entire grain of Earth is fed to livestock, to produce meat and animal-products. This is happening when every days thousands of people die of hunger. Even if half of that grain was fed to people instead of animals, world hunger would become a myth.

Actually, in my opionion, we can mention many reasons to have a vegetarian or lacto-vegeterian deit, gathered in a few levels:

1. individual health - meat digestion releases toxins in our body; meat digestion takes more energy; meet is much more likely to increase the colesterol then vegeterian diet; the meet we eat today is alos full of antibiotics given to the animals; the way anmals are kept today many of them are sick before being slautered, making for desiesed meat.

2. spiritual hygine - when we eat soemthing we also assimilate the energy of that thing. therefore, when we eat an animal we also ingest its bestial energy. even more so when considering that the animal was probably very frighteend and in agony when it died - chaging the meet with these terrible energies.

3. morality - its simply cruel, as we could see in that movie. now, if i find myself stranded in the wilderness wih othing to eat but what i hunt - well, i am all for survivle. but we dont need to - we can do just fine with the vegtables that grow all around us.

4. sustainability - like annam wrote - much of the produced grain is given as animal feed. and that is even before counting the grazing areas which otherwise could be used for growing vegetables and fruits. did you know that the main reason for cutting down te amazon rain-forest is to make graing areas for beef? some have calculated, that if all humans would be vegetarian, earth could sustain a population 4 times the size of the current population.

any more reasons to add?

RE: healthy food for Yogies
The vegetarian diet became very popular in the Nordic countries because of things which happened in the world wars like in Norway between 1940 and 1945, the country was obligated to eat cereals, vegetables, fruits, honey and lacteal products... and at the same time they were being restricted to eating meat. In the first year after this change, mortality decreased a 17 percent, and all the population was in a better health state. The same restrictions were done in Denmark and they got similar results. After the war in this two countries, people started again to eat as they used to in a diet dominated by meat and the mortality increased back as it used to be.

RE: healthy food for Yogies

hi yogis!

I know many of you guys like to drink Yogi Tea or Celestial Tea. Myself, I was surprised to find out that many of the common tea brands contain pesticides and toxic ingredients.

here a good article on it

i still love those teas, but it is good to choose more consciously.

and if you didn't know yet some of the greatest man who lived on this planet were actually vegetarians.

Such as Pythagoras, Plato, Leo Tolstoy, Mahatma Gandhi, Albert Einstein, George Bernard Shaw, Nikola Tesla, Shopenhauer, Thoreau, Leonardo Da Vinci, Voltaire etc.

They knew there could be no spiritual advancement while attaining ones nourishment from cruelty and the exploitation of others.

I ate white sugar unconsciously my entire life until 3 months ago when i decided to try the difference, to not to eat sugar. Some of my yogi friends were speaking about it, saying that they were in a diet of not eating sugar, i was wondering what was wrong with them, why not to eat it?. Then i started to prepare my mind, i even told a friend of mine one day: i am preparing to stop eating sugar, he was inspiring me somehow, saying all the great effects which not to have white sugar in the blood system gives and i remember him saying that he does not need it anymore. Then i got to the point in which i was prepared to do so, i just stopped totally, it was not difficult at all. And when i did after a while i could feel coming back from a dream, is not that my mind is totally still and calm but somehow i feel life is more real than it was before when i was eating almost everyday white sugar. Is amazing to enjoy the real sugar from fruits, honey, raw cane sugar, is pure and cleaning. So i think the best way to see the difference is to make the change and experience, fully aware of the effects and not just to keep doing it because one is used to. So i encourage people to it!.

wow, so inspiring. thanks for sharing. i want to stop sugar too, but if you do it properly it is shocking to see that sugar is in most packed supermarket food, (like bread, peanut butter, chips, many mueslis, drinks, most fast foods …)

it is quiet a challenge to surpass old habits and cravings. and not to speak about the reactions of family and friends,
"You’re at a birthday party and you’re not having cake?" or currently all the temptations at christmas parties

It is difficult indeed to do it properly, even Mayoinesse has sugar, you must be careful and check.

RE: Healthy Food for Yogies
Im on the NO white Sugar front, and i have been for 9 years or so.

Both with meat and white sugar, and i guess everything else, the thing is you can only experience the effects correctly, if you first have clensed your system of this effects throughoutly.

thats why a prolonged period of not eating sugar is nessesary in order to feel for oneself, what is the effect of sugar.

Heres a few that i noticed.

lack of vitality, lack of willpower,

really heavy on the sexual continence, (less of control of energy on the 2 lower chackras)

makes the body feel like a washed out fish (if that makes any sense)

blocks ajna chacka.

blocks spontaneous transfiguration.

makes your energybody vibrate in a weird way, - like a cover of weird vibration that has to be removed, before spiritual work gets to the real benefits.

With this i can conclude 2 things.
1) after meat elimination, next thing is white sugar (for every yogi, especially men)

2) White sugar is a tool, on purpose or not, to control the masses.

3) Do not go for the cheapest kind of sweet you can find, it will mess you up. Go for the kind that fits your soul Wink
