Clean Eating

So what the hell is this Clean Eating everyone is talking about? Let me simplify it for you… It is when you cut out the shitty processed foods from your diet. It is eating 6 small meals a day and balancing eating lean proteins, fruits, veggies, complex carbs and healthy fats.  Basically you are cutting out processed foods.

Believe it or not you actually get to eat more food and you will feel better than you ever have.  Eating clean will get your body to its optimum weight and you will tone up way faster then when you eat crap.  Lets face it…

 

cant out exercise

This is a life-style change, but that does not mean you cannot ever treat your self. I follow clean eating 80% of the time. Never leaving me feeling deprived, it is all about moderation not deprivation.

You usually will want to shop the perimeter of the store grabbing the fresh foods first.
