Time to Eat-Clean!

Recommended Posts

I already do some of these things, but I'm going to make an effort to do all of them.

I just wanted to share my new endeavor....to eat clean. To start, I have never been a fan of traditional diets and the concept of eliminating or restricting entire food groups. If you choose that route, I am not judging, but my opinion is that it is not a healthy approach food and I have trouble with them. Then, in the last month, I came across the concept of eating clean and the Eat-Clean diet.

An excellent resource that outlines the concept is "The Eat-Clean Diet" book by Tosca Reno or Eat-Clean magazine....or you could Google it and figure it out that way.

Essentially, I have decided that my hubby and I are overdue to clean up our diets. So as of September 1st, we are committed to eating clean!

What this means for us is:
1) Eating whole foods, that have not been processed, or have been as minimally processed as possible (aka fruits, veggies, nuts, whole grains etc)
2) Increasing water to at least 2500ml a day (10cups)
3) Cut out the white - white sugar, white flour, white rice
4) Reducing saturated fats by choosing lean meat and most cheese (the cheese will be the toughy for me...mmm...cheese); no transfats
5) Eating every 2-3 hours, but having mini-meals rather than 3 square meals a day

The principles are simple, read labels, don't consume things you can't pronounce and eat a little protein, fat and complex carbs every meal.

Basically, it is basic nutrition without the crap from take-out, fast-food, or pre-packaged items...oh and no alcohol....DH won't cut out beer, but I don't really drink much anyways so when I do I will choose heart healthy red wine instead.

Wish me luck and I'll be sure to keep you guys posted on my progress and challenges!

Me and my Fi adopted the clean eating lifestyle a little over a year ago and we've never felt better. I would recommend this to anyone. I convivecd my to slowly adopt the principles and she's lost a lot of weight and no longer needs to take her cholestorol and high blood pressure meds!

I read some time ago that the amount of water you should drink = 1/2 your weight in ounces.  So if you weigh 150 lbs, you should drink at least 75 oz of water.  I've been doing that for a while now.  At first you feel like you're drowning.  now I'm used to it.

I've been eating a lot more clean over the past few months and I feel great!  Of course I allow myself to indulge once in a while, but for the most part I try to as clean as possible.  I also drink a ton of water.  I'm not looking to lose weight, I want to tone up for the wedding and just be overall more healthy.  I love the ToneItUp girls on YouTube - highly recommended!

    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
