Eating Clean – The Lifestyle for Your Health!

You may have heard of the concept of eating clean but be unsure as to what exactly this process involves.  To put it simply, clean eating is when you eat food that is as close as possible to its natural state.  Of course this isn’t always possible, but the core idea behind it is to consume natural and wholesome foods.  While there is certainly a lot of talk of the Eat Clean Diet, it is important to understand that it is not intended to be a diet per say.  Rather, eating clean is a lifestyle that should never end.

A key component to this idea is to eat five or six times each day.  Lean protein foods, fruit, vegetables, whole grains, seeds and nuts are the core of a clean diet.  Balance is important and each time you have a meal or snack both protein and carbohydrates should be present.  Water is key, and you should drink at least two liters daily.

In order to be successful, you will need to take the time to learn how to read labels.  Ingredient lists should be as short as possible and you should avoid anything that has ingredients that you don’t recognize.  Avoid white flour, sugar, white bread and white pasta.  Instead, choose whole wheat or whole grain versions.  Quinoa pasta and rice pasta are delicious healthy alternatives to highly refined options.  You will also want to stay away from foods that are high in saturated fats and trans fats.

You may think that fat is something you will have to stay away from but actually you will want to make sure you get enough of the right kinds of fats each day.  Essential fatty acids are a key component to your health, as are fats from sources like avocados, olives and nuts.

Start eating healthy. Small Steps

Eating healthy means changing your lifestyle. It means changing habits that are ingrained in your subconscious. It is not an easy thing to do, but it can be done. The secret here is to take small baby steps at first, until you are confident enough.

The first step for me was to stop eating sugar and sugar containing products. I replaced it with honey. Now I eat a lot of honey, I am trying to reduce it as well, but honey is much, much healthier than sugar. I just decided to stop eating sugar one day, and now 180 days later I still live by that decision. For me it is easier this way, for others it is easier if they reduce the amount gradually. First trying to eat less of it, and gradually they will keep reducing the quantity until they stop eating it all together.

After I was done with sugar I put my eyes on white bread and white pasta. I replaced it with whole wheat brown bread and pasta. At first I could tell the difference, but now I don’t even remember what white bread tastes like.

After that I decided to add a workout program in my schedule. I always wanted to know how to lose belly fat. From my experience this is the easiest and healthiest way to do it. To gradually improve your eating habits and having an active lifestyle. You don’t need some extreme workout program, or a gym subscription. A few stretching moves in the morning will help you more than you can imagine. You will lose belly fat and you will live a more healthier lifestyle.

Having more energy and being more happy are two nice bonus rewards. You will also have more confidence in yourself because you will know that you can accomplish anything if you set your mind to it. Start improving your life today. Take one tiny step!
