Eating Clean To Lose Weight For Beginners

Clean eating


Eating clean is your ticket to being healthy and losing weight. Eating a healthy diet will give you the best results from your workout and your overall health. Believe it or not, some people manage their weight completely with their diet and minimal exercise. I’ve seen some manage their weight with a clean diet and intermittent fasting.

Protein, fat, and Carbohydrate ratio.

Your diet should include a balance of proteins, carbohydrates, and fats. The best ration for your goals will depend on your goals. Just know that a balanced diet will lower hunger cravings and give your body the fuel it needs to function properly.

Eat whole fruits and vegetables.

Stop buying canned vegetables in syrup. Only buy packaged fruit if it’s in 100 percent fruit. Buy fruits and vegetables in season to get the most nutrients. As a bonus, it will save you money and taste better!

Be selective about the meat you eat.

Eat meat that’s grass-fed or free-range. We like to purchase our meats from Wegmans. It has a higher quality than the meat from other stores that I won’t name on this post...Read More
