One has to be very careful about food, especially when one is proceeding Godward, through the steep path of Yoga. Remember also that ‘dress’ is primarily for protection against heat and cold, not for vain display at the cost of even health. Do not be a victim of lust or taste. Be moderate in food and keep the senses strictly under control.
(From : Sai Veda, The Word of God, sayings of Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba)
