People have that impression of Yoga, but it's not like that at all. EDIT: I don't lift weights anymore but was in the best shape of my life doing daily Yoga practice that focused on lifting my own body weight. (The pose in my profile pic is amazing for the back and butt). I was lean and toned, which I've never been before. And yip, my tummy was pretty tight. I even had a two pack!

Reason: Nitpicking comments reminded me of my former fitness life.
"I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.
In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."
