Some tips to enhance your results:
1. Drink water – It’s a good idea to have water available and to drink several glasses throughout the day, equaling about 2.5 liters. You know you’re hydrated when your urine is clear or nearly clear.
2. Sodas – Give up sodas, even diet varieties, as they contain either loads of sugar or artificial sweeteners.
3. Avoid junk food and fast food. Instead, cook at home and discover how easy it is to transition from a diet filled with processes foods to a clean eating plan.
4. Eat more fresh fruits, veggies, nuts, lean protein, and low-fat dairy; and avoid overly processed foods that are packed with sodium and refined sugar.
5. Eat smaller portions, about the size of your fist. We recommend eating three small meals and two to three clean snacks each day. Also, using smaller plates can help to keep your portions in check.
6. Read labels and look at the ingredient list. If the product contains refined sugar, enriched white flour and is high in sodium, it’s a food best left on the shelf. If you can’t pronounce each of the ingredients or know what they are, you probably shouldn’t be buying it. Reading the ingredient label is a must if your goal is to know exactly what goes into your body.
These six tips will help you to eat clean.
