You are what you eat. Well, simply put that doesn’t mean that if you eat a banana you become a banana. It means that if you are a life that is dependent on other lives for its existence.

This is talking in terms of physicality, in terms of energies, a unique cleansing happens in your body if you rely more on raw food. In Yogic culture this was achieved by eating a particular kind of food when on fasting. Fruit diet is the best form of raw diet as it has multi fold benefits such as cleansing your digestive track with its high fibre content and balancing your blood pressure. If yoga practice is accompanied by fruit diet such as in morning breakfasts it will gradually have a positive overall effect on body flexibility and weight loss benefits.
