To me eating healthy and the Yogic diet is about eating ethically, non violently, supporting local products, being healthy to my full potential both physically and mentally, feeling great inside with my mind and emotions and outside with my strength and fitness.  Healthy eating is about more than the food on your plate, it is about how you think about food, how your obtain food, how your prepare food and how you are thankful for your food. Chapter 7 in The complete illustrated book of Yoga by Swami Vishnu-Devananda, describes five important rules for Yogic health and I think how the world can embrace these ~ 1. Proper exercise to stimulate circulation  2. Proper breathing exercise, to absorb more oxygen 3. Proper relaxation of the body and mind 4. Natural wholesome food  5. Proper thinking and concentration of the mind Four elements are needed for the body’s repair and rebuilding ~ 1. Protein 2. Carbohydrates 3. Hydrocarbons / fat 4. Minerals / Vitamins There are much larger proportions found of all these in fresh vegetables than in animal meat. Fruits and vegetables are proven to aid in keeping the body alkaline, fight cancer, and for endurance of the mind and body in trying conditions when compared to meat which is highly un-balanced, containing excess protein, lacking in calcium and vitamins, destroying the body with uric acid, parasites and negative energy.
The body needs a well balanced healthy diet, of vitamin, mineral, nutrient rich foods as fuel to supply fresh energy, to actively renew and repair the body tissues, bones and organ, to think clearly on focus and to feel balanced, nourished and strong.  All fruit and vegetables are grown from the sun energy, in soil, calcium minerals manufacture vitamins, rich with water and living energy. So eating fruit and vegetables are eating living raw energy that is pure food, pure which brings calmness to the mind and nourishment to the body.
A Yogic diet often talks of fasting as a form of physical cleansing or purification, occasionally advocated, to allow our digestive system to recover and rest, from eating too much, eating unhealthy foods or simply to recuperate energy into repairing, cleansing and clearing of the old to bring in new energy for regeneration. I think this is suitable for some but not for all, so listen to your gut instinct!
The Yogic diet also follows the Bhagavad Gita’s knowledge of three types of food ~ Sattvic (pure food) Rajastic (stimulating food) and tamasic (impure and rotten food), Sattvic soothes the mind and body, Rajastic arouses passion (can create restlessness) and Tamasic diminishes energy making a person dull, lacking vitality and lazy ~ These are three ways of describing everything in the world, even people!
“Always remember that nature is marvelously wise, since it represents the infinite wisdom of all creation” “Prevention is better than cure. Use food as medicine chiefly by eating foods in their natural state as much as possible” Swami Vishnu-devananda
