Try a clean eating diet for 28 days. Your body will thank you.
The basic principle of clean eating is choosing whole, fresh, unprocessed foods.
A clean diet can vary depending on everyone’s preferences but there is one thing that all clean eaters would agree on: the white stuff has to go! This includes all white sugar and white flour products. These foods provide no nutritional value. Whole foods actually fill you up and fuel you, whereas sugar and flour only fulfill a mental craving and alter your blood sugar levels. When your blood sugar is too high or too low you will experience cravings and may also cause symptoms like irritability and fatigue.
Eat enough and eat on a regular basis. Don’t let your body get hungry or you’ll be tempted to cheat.
It’s all about balance and your plate should reflect that. Try to eat a balanced amount of proteins, fats and carbohydrates in every meal. Fill your plate with an unlimited amount of vegetables and then add quality sources of protein, complex carbs and healthy fats.
The more organic products you can include in your diet the better. The Environmental Working Group releases a Clean 15 list (what fruits and vegetables have the least pesticides) and Dirty Dozen list (what fruits and vegetables have the most pesticides) . Keep this list in mind when grocery shopping so you minimize your exposure to toxins.
