I didn't believe it at first BUT Clean Eating is NOT a Fad .... Its the most important way of life
Updated: Oct 17, 2021
I was never one to buy into the hype of "organic eating" &"clean living " .... Looking back at that it's seems rather silly that I would be so skeptical of eating and living healthier but less skeptical to try all the 'FADS Diets that are out there.
It is truly funny how our minds work and what we will be open to . In the end we need to do it for ourselves to see how it can help change our health's and lives.
The fact remains that today’s modern diet is wrecking havoc on our bodies. Not only do we eat too many processed foods filled with saturated fats, sugar, and sodium, but we also are very removed from where our food comes from; so much of our food comes to us covered in pesticides and toxic chemicals and loaded with growth hormones. The evidence is growing that this type of diet is not sustainable, especially not for good health.
Clean eating is NOT a fad; it is a necessity, and it is growing in popularity. Clean eating benefits your body in so many ways, from better digestive function to better energy and brain performance. It helps promote a strong immune system and reduces your risk of illness and disease. Clean eating is important, and it's not going anywhere!
Clean Eating Basics
Eating healthy food helps in myriad ways. Including more fruits and vegetables can help you lose weight, improve your immune system, and maintain an overall healthy lifestyle. Here are some basics of clean eating:
· Start by planning a healthy diet. This should include simple carbohydrates that are easily dissolved in your body eaten in limited amounts; you want to avoid the insulin surge from overloading on carbs. You also want to include some complex carbs for sustained energy. These can be found in whole grain, brown rice, leafy vegetables, and oats. They are also packed with vitamins and minerals.
· Protein is essential to stay healthy, so find good sources of clean, organic, lean meat such as fish and chicken. You can also get protein from legumes, beans, and nuts.
· Know the difference between good and bad fats. Unsaturated fats and omega-3 fatty acids are the good fats that do not contribute to increased cholesterol levels. These are found in fish, nuts, and olive oil and in many other seeds as well. Saturated fats are the bad fats found in processed food that can raise your cholesterol level and cause heart disease, so avoid them as much as possible.
· Increase your consumption of superfoods that pack a big punch of fulfilling nutrients in just a few items.
· Manage your portions. Just because you are eating healthily does not mean you need to consume excess calories.
· Drink plenty of water!
Clean eating is a lifestyle, but it doesn’t have to be complicated. In fact, the more you practice clean eating, the easier it will get and the better you will feel. You will eventually get to a point where all those old foods you used to eat make you cringe; you remember how you felt after those! Clean eating is not a fad, and it is necessary!
