So about three weeks ago I started the process of eating clean. What is eating clean you may ask? Well if you google it you get the following definition:
“eating clean is the practice of eating whole, natural foods such as fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and complex carbohydrates. It also means staying away from the junk that typically makes up the Standard American Diet (S.A.D) These types of food include man-made sugar, bad fats (hydrogenated, trans-fat), preservatives, white bread, and any other ingredients that are unnecessary.”
You can go here for more details or you can go the method I went and learn more about the Eat Clean Diet. So I talked to the husband and he agreed to support me on this change. So we cleaned out most of the cabinets and got rid of most of the processed foods. That meant sodas, crappy juices, frozen lunches. We agree to a weekly cheat of frozen pizza on nights we just need something quick.
Amazingly enough we have been doing great! We feel better, we sleep better, and it is great. I am down 3lbs and I contribute it to our eating clean.
So it can be tough, but I’ve been making small changes each week. I’ll never cut out some ingredients, some I have never even heard of. However, I highly recommend it! Check out the Eat Clean Diet book (not endorsed just encouraged), make sure you exercise, and you will be pleasantly surprised!
