28 Day Clean Eating Diet Guide
The basic principle of clean eating is trying to eat to the best of your ability, whole, fresh, unprocessed foods. Food that occurs in nature and don’t go through extensive processing.
Preparing the food by yourself will help your chances of being successful on a clean eating plan. Going out to restaurants is not restricted but unfortunately the food served there is not as fresh and most likely processed, resulting in less nutritional value. If you are not used to cooking in the kitchen start with basics and move up from there.
The clean eating approach understands that not all calories are equal. When you only consume whole foods you are much more likely to not over consume and maintain a healthy weight. Eating whole foods will provide your body with the nutrients it needs to keep your body not only at a healthy weight but also overall healthy. Whole foods contain an abundance of vitamin and minerals like Vitamin A, C, D and K, B12, magnesium and calcium.
