Clean eating is not a new concept. At its most basic, clean eating is making the healthiest food choices possible, opting for fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and lean cuts of meat instead of processed and refined foods. To eat clean, there are a few easy principles to follow.
Clean Eating Principles
•Eating a mini-meal every two to three hours (5 to 6 small meals per day total) to keep blood sugar level and prevent hunger
•Combining lean proteins and complex carbs at every meal
•Avoiding all over-processed and refined foods (especially sugar, white rice, and white flour)
•Avoiding saturated and trans fat, instead consuming healthy fats
•Avoiding soda and other sugary juices and drinks
•Avoiding high-calorie, zero nutrient foods (i.e., junk food)
•Eating proper portion sizes
•Drinking at least 8 cups of water every day
IT's a LIFESTYLE CHANGE not a DIET
