Hot Yoga Don’t: Eat foods that bloat your body
During hot yoga, you want to be thinking about one thing: hot yoga (not the greasy chips you ate in the car on the way over).
That’s why it’s not just the quantity of food that matters – it’s also the type of food. If you know that bread makes you sleepy or feel too full, for example, avoid it.
And, of course, skip the usual suspects like processed and high-fat foods, says Bolen. “(Avoid) anything that will make you bloated.” (Or gassy!)
That’s good health advice whether you’re doing hot yoga or not.
