Yoga includes recommendations on eating habits and tells us that eating in moderation is an important part of yoga practice. It is one of the Yamas (self-restraint). The Yogi should be aware of the quantity and quality of food and drinks he or she consumes, takes neither too much nor too little and suits it to one`s health condition and needs. Ahimsa, which is translated as non-violance is also a great part of Yoga as a whole and incorporates vegetarianism as an essential part of the yogic path.
