Clean eating is not a new way of eating. In my opinion our ancestors all used to "eat clean"; that was until we introduced all sorts of processed junk food into our diets.
  • Eat 5-6 small meals a day (every 2.5-3 hours)
  • Start with a healthy breakfast within 1 hour of waking up
  • With every meal eat a combo of a lean protein (lean ground turkey, chicken breast, protein powder, fish, eggs, tofu, etc.) and complex carbohydrates (sweet potato, yams, brown rice, oatmeal, whole wheat bread, whole grain crackers etc.)
  • Get nutrients from fresh vegetables and fruits
  • Eat healthy fats at least twice a day (ie. olive oil, avocado, walnuts, almonds, seeds, etc.)
  • Drink TONS of water (and herbal tea)
  • Don't eat too much in one sitting
  • Prepare for your day and pack a cooler with all the necessities
