Seriously, I have had friends on Avocado and Banana diets, low carb, high fat and protein diets, red meat diets, dairy diets, liquid diets and some are just plain starving themselves.
There is NO need for all of that. Your body’s natural tendency is to find it’s natural weight…it’s equilibrium and I want to share with you a few tips that will help you cleanse your body, get healthy, get more energy and lose some weight.
So here’s my Clean Eating Tips for you…
Eat Smaller meals – 4 to 6 small meals each day. that helps your digestive system and increases your metabolism.
Don’t skip meals, especially breakfast – putting your body into starvation mode doesn’t help you in the long term. It places stress on your organs and confuses your body which means it will slow down your metabolism.
Pile up the Veggies – Don’t be scared of your veggies. That is where all your vitamins, minerals and helpful nutrients are. When you get your veggies you don’t need to add all those supplements either. The health benefits of veggies are well documented.
Go Raw – the more we cook and process our foods the more of the goodness we lose. When certain veggies are heated powerful enzymes are damaged, which means that many of the healthy benefits such as, anti-cancer compounds called glucosinolates, are reduced. We need to keep those babies in there.
Manage your fruit intake – Yes fruit is good for you, but when we are eating too much fruit, it means our bodies are getting loaded with sugar. Too much sugar is not a great thing, no matter the source. Stick to low sugar fruits such as berries and add them to your food for awesome taste.
Skip the dairy – Diary is proven to be inflammatory especially for those with immune issues, respiratory and sinus issues. Most of the diary we find on the shelves today is packed with sugar and isn’t going to help your body be efficient. Ever had a yogurt at lunch time and then felt the need to have a little nap afterwards? That is the sugar spike kicking in.
Add healthy fats to your diet – Healthy fats can actually lower the bad cholesterol in your body, help with the healthy hair and nails and also actually help you lose the extra pounds. Good sources of healthy fats are Avocado’s, Nuts, Coconut Oil and Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Use Shakes – For those of you who are busy and on the go, make yourself a healthy organic, non dairy shake that will help you make all your small meals, without the need of preparing.
Skip the snacks – For those of you who love a snack, prepare yourself little bags of fruits, seeds and nuts that will help you avoid the snack temptation. After you have skipped the sugar, processed foods, dairy and other bad carbs your body will stop the cravings in any case, so it will get easier.
Dump the White stuff - To be honest the best thing you can do is pass on the breads, pastas and many other processed options. Chose healthier options like Quinoa, Buckwheat, Millet and if you’re crazy about bread there are some awesome almond and coconut flour recipes out there which are so good, and don’t have all the bad stuff in there.
Drink – Water should be your companion all day and everyday. Also try adding a few drops of Citrus essential oils to your water for flavor and also try a cup of warm water with Lemon in the morning to help cleanse your body.
Well that should be enough to get you started and making a difference in your life. If you’re ever in need of guidance then reach out and let me know.
