Some Simple Strategies (that you may already know) for Clean Eating SUCCESS:
-All fruits and vegetables are a go!
You should have a colorful plate to make sure you take in a balance of vitamins, minerals, and proteins .
-Anything processed is a no!
Does it have a wrapper? How many ingredients does it have listed? Can you pronounce the names? If you have doubts, check it out, and throw it out. .
-Consume some protein, carbs, and fat in every meal!
All three are levels of energy, and we want to keep equilibrium. Generally, consuming plenty of carbs and [good] fats is the easy part. Let’s make sure we’re taking in enough protein. Proteins repair muscles and curb our appetite which helps prevent over eating. .
-Limit fat, salt, and sugar!
While we are eating clean this shouldn’t be too large of a problem, since clean foods are usually naturally low in all of these ingredients. Just make sure you are not adding too much of them to your clean foods. .
-Fuel at least 5x day!
Eating this way prevents you from skipping meals and overeating. It also keeps your blood sugar levels steady so energy doesn’t lag. .
High calorie drinks like specialty coffees and soft drinks, on
average, tack on an extra 400 to 500 calories a day. Choose water first or unsweetened tea (any flavor). Other clean drinks: low-fat or skim milk and 100 percent fruit juice diluted with sparkling water. .
