I am a vegetarian for seven years now and don't see any damage from it, but I cannot relate anything positive it may have effected either - no 'light' feeling, better health, more energy etc.; nothing of this.

The one thing detrimental may be a sort of earthy energy that meat gave me and which the common vegetarian food cannot replace, except Indian food - but who is willing to cook all day?

Once I tried one of Yogananda's cleansing diets consisting merely of boiled vegetables - I got sick indeed after seven days and it took me one week to recover. A friend of mine who is a health expert had warned me beforehand, but I ignored her.

I am still a strict vegetarian, but mostly for the reason that livestock is treated so cruelly; this makes me sick. Not that much for any yogic reasons.

Professor Nerode mentioned at his deleted web site some people having had considerable health trouble as a result of Yogananda's health instructions during the latter's lifetime; I cannot remember whether the FDA monitored all this closely, but I believe Yogananda had to tone down his obsession with vegetarian diets as a result - according to Nerode. Other than the stories concerning Yogananda's sex life I can easily believe this one.
