Every year, millions of people resolve to lose weight starting on January 1. And every year, around February 1, most of those folks feel like failures because they can’t stick to their new diet routine.

I get it. I’ve struggled with weight for most of my adult life.

Clean Eating

A clean-eating diet helps you lose fat and weight while increasing your energy and overall well-being. Other benefits include clear skin, healthy, strong hair, and better sleep. 

Clean eating is more of a lifestyle than a diet. Nothing is strictly off limits, which is one of the reasons the clean eating diet is so popular. Simply put, clean eating means eating more natural and less processed foods.

Clean Eating Basics

  • Eat 6 Small Meals Per Day
  • Always Eat Breakfast
  • Eat Lean Protein & Complex Carbs in Every Meal
  • Eat 2-3 Servings of Healthy Fats Every Day
  • Drink 2-3 Liters of Water Every Day
