-Obviously if you strength train muscles, you have to let it rest so it can grow. Does that same thing also apply for stretching:

Can you stretch mutiple times per day?

If you stretch sore muscles does overtrain the muscle?

-Has pracicing Yoga or switching to a diet much lower in meat (or none at all) and fat shown any difference in your sex drive at all? Any difference in your muscle mass?

I found this: a very good source on the theme of stretching.

You put me in great diffculty answering your last question.

I say, practice yoga and you'll find out. You will not lose anything important, but you might find much more than you thought.

From what I know, a daily stretching program will not damage your body unless you are going to extremes, whereas daily weightlifting will eventually break your body down, the muscles need a chance to recover and re-build.

I can answer the muscle mass question from personal experience. I lifted weights, transforming my body into something I now believe was not meant to be. When I stopped and started doing Yoga, I no longer felt the need or want to eat 5-6 times a day and in large amounts. I went from about 185 lbs to around 160 lbs in about 3 months. I've remained there for about 6 years now and it feels great and natural.
