According to these teachings a poor diet has a pronounced effect on your life. It drains your mental and physical energy. It affects your moods and it hampers the clarity of your mind. They say as you nourish your body, so you nourish your mind.
This practice requires us to eat Live Foods. Live foods are those which are created through the natural interaction of the sun, air, soil and water, a vegetarian diet. Fill your plate with fresh vegetables, fruits and grains and you might just live forever.
It sounds like an extreme move, for us who are used to meats and other animal products, but these teachings are based on the ageless principle that 'one must live a life of moderation and do nothing to extremes.' So if you like meat, you can certainly keep eating it. Just remember that you are ingesting dead food. If you can, cut back on the amount of red meat that you eat. It is really hard to digest and since your digestive system is one of the most energy-consuming processes of your entire body, valuable energy reserves are needlessly depleted by this foodstuff.
The ritual of live nourishment recommends moderate change, like including a salad in every meal and with time adopting a more vegetarian diet, makes all the difference.
