Clean Eating


I read Oxygen magazine from time to time to get workout tips. The magazine has some good nutrition tips as well. They often make reference to a way of eating called "Clean Eating". I did some quick research on it a while back and I decided it would be too challenging for me. It requires the removal of all processed foods (refined sugars, saturated/trans fats, overly processed foods) from your diet. It sounded like a good idea but I did not think it was realistic for me. So I would just ignore the clean eating tips in the mag.

I came across Clean Eating Magazine while getting my hair done this past weekend and after reading it carefully I realized that Clean Eating may not be so diffcult after all. You swap out refined flour and sugar for whole grains and natural sweetners (honey, agave nectar). It appears there are ways to get around eating processed foods and still enjoying your food. Clean Eating mag offers great tips and several meal plans for eating clean.
Clean Eating has tons of health benefits because you remove the bad fats, sugars, and additives from your diets. I am still doing my research and figuring out how I can move to a Clean Eating lifestyle. I will keep you all posted as I move to clean eating.

I have never heard of clean eating but it sounds like the same idea that I have heard before. I would like to try it for two weeks (like a fasting) and see if I feel different.

I tend to eat clean Mon-Fri and then semi-clean on weekends allowing for indulgences when I got out to eat or to parties/gaetherings. I've been doing it since about 2002 and it becomes pretty easy once you get used to it and start to have the ingredients needed to create clean foods and recipes. I definitely notice a difference in my energy and overall well-being when I don't eat clean. Other foods leave me feeling heavy and exhausted and actually make my workouts tougher to get through because they drag me down. It's definitely well worth the extra time and effort.

I have heard of clean eating! In fact, I've been doing it for 2 months and have lost 10 lbs!! It is most def hard in the beginning, esp since I am a sucker for bread and candied nuts. But, after hard work and will power, it has become much easier. I feel lighter, my skin is clear and I sleep better! I pay attention better in class and I have tons of energy to workout. I would recommend it to everyone that wants to try it. Clean eating also keeps my pockets bigger and my stomach small! lol
