Now that we are settling into the New Year, you have probably spent some time reflecting on your life – from career to family to health and everything in between. Maybe you made some resolutions and are determined to make positive changes. If any of these resolutions or changes are related to becoming healthier or dropping a few pounds, you may consider trying to eat CLEAN. The fact that juicing and cleansing are becoming daily conversation pieces shows that we’re all looking for a way to refresh and detoxify. My opinion is that eating CLEAN is all you need to feel better, get healthier, and shed some weight.
Eating CLEAN means eating what nature intended – foods in their natural state – while avoiding processed and refined foods. Ideally, these foods should have only 1–2 ingredients, but more a more loose way of doing this would be to make sure all ingredients are real food ingredients with no preservatives or chemicals (no item listed that you can’t identify or pronounce).
If you resolved to work out more in 2013, don’t let your sweat be in vain. One of the reasons people abandon their fitness resolutions is lack of results, and that generally happens when they think they are eating right, but aren’t. Changing your food habits will get you to your goals and keep fueling your workout motivation.
