With a few adjustments to your diet, you can improve your overall health and shed those extra kilos.
Clean eating is a term that’s been used a lot in recent years. While this is one diet trend that has caught on quickly and widely, many people may still not know what it is exactly, or how to start cleaning up their diet.
What it is, simply, is eating more of the healthiest options in each food group and less of the unhealthy ones. More specifically, it means choosing whole foods such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains and healthy fats, and cutting down on processed foods such as refined grains, preservatives, and unhealthy fats .
A lot of clean-eating diet plans tend to eliminate food groups such as dairy, carbs and more. But that can backfire badly — not only do they take away the enjoyment of eating, they can also deprive your body of essential nutrients.
It helps to find a clean-eating plan that works for you, even if it includes having a “cheat meal” from time to time. Your body will thank you for making the effort to cut back on processed foods and replacing them with healthier options. Here are some ways to get started.
