Clean Eating For Long Term Results
I get so many people who want to eat clean but don’t know where to start. How many servings a day?! Can I eat carbs?! Is the sugar in fruit okay?! So hopefully this will clear up some confusion you may have.
The plan I'm going to outline here is for steady weight loss or for maintenance once your goal weight is reached. This is basically the plan I stick to year round! This will give you a good idea of what to eat and when.
Don't confuse this with a diet. It's NOT a diet! It is a WAY OF EATING that is in alignment with your goals and we do not ever start or stop this. It's for steady, healthy weight loss and it can also be used for maintenance. Here’s why: when your body begins to approaching its set point (its genetically predetermined healthy weight) you will find that weight loss will stop or slow.
The occasional treat (glass of wine, piece of chocolate, etc) is permitted in limited amounts. Unhealthy sugars and fats are not recommended.
What to do:
Eat more! Eat six small meals each day.
Eat breakfast every day, within an hour of rising.
Eat a combination of lean protein and complex carbs at each meal
