Eating Cleaner Defined

August 25, 2009

EC-6ct-Wipes-Zipper-PouchWhat does it mean to eat cleaner? It’s not a diet. It’s a lifestyle and a balanced approach to food – from its nutritional content to how its prepared – bringing you better health, one bite at a time. At the end of the day, it’s the quality and quantity that count.

1) Eat frequent, small meals throughout the day. Pick lean protein, plenty of fresh fruit + veggies and a complex carbohydrate with every meal to keep energized and burning calories long after your workout. This also helps control portion size, which can often undermine a good diet.

2) Drink at least 8 glasses of water a day. Water helps flush toxins, keeps you hydrated and controls your appetite. Thirst often disguises itself as hunger.

3) Avoid processed and refined foods. Fresh is best. Fill your shopping cart with foods from the perimeter of the store and opt for complex carbs that are richer in nutrients.

4) Consume healthy fats. Brain and organ function depend on healthy fats, found naturally in seeds, nuts and fish. Consider supplements rich in essential fatty acids if you don’t consume these regularly.
