Why no non-veg during Navratri?

I always wonder why do people stop eating non-vegetarian food during the week-long Navratri festival? They keep eating chicken and other forms of meat all through the year and still pray but during this fasting season of Navratri, they would suddenly go off non-veg diet... WHY?

Just to please God or wash off their sins? I don't understand this logic. Does it really matter what you eat and what you don't during Navratri? Can it really decide whether you are actually religious or not? Share your opinion.

Navratra fasting doesn't mean not only to avoid taking non-veg but to completely avoiding food other then fruits. Every year Navratra's fall at a time while season is changing. First time from Winter to Summer and second time Summer to Winter. This is suggested that if we fast for these 9 days, we'll stay fit throughout the coming season. Jai Ma Ambe.

UPVAAS = UP means near and VAAS means to stay....... It does not means fasting...... Upvaas means to stay near the God once need to be pure in all the terms.... Mind, body and soul..... If we eat RAAJ & TAMAS type of food we would not attain the goal for upvaas...... So Saatva food is recomended and no fasting. Upvaas do not means fasting.......
