Clean Eating Recipes for your weight loss meal plan

Since last couple of years common men and women like you and me is realizing the importance of making conscious food choices. Slowly we are waking up to the fact the the food industry and those regulating them in the government might not have our best interest in mind.

Diets which promises good health are gaining popularity, because more and more people want to learn how they can eat better. Diets like Paleo, Keto, Vegan, to name a few has been very popular recently. But they are not so easy to stick to, rather they require a complete lifestyle change which sometimes gets in the way to adapt healthy eating.

Your fail safe  is ‘Clean Eating’, which do not require you to follow complicated diet rules but still lead you to a healthier life.

Principles of clean eating is simple, yet so many people get it wrong. The simplest way to understand clean eating is to consume whole foods that are minimally processed, refined or come form a natural source.

Instead of following strict diet rules, clean eating relies on building good eating habits and making better choices every time you decide to eat something. It challenges us to choose more fruits and vegetables as well as foods that are free of additives and preservatives.

If you still believe processed foods are safe to consume, then I am sorry to say you are putting yourself and your family in great danger. Processed foods acts like slow poison, they low in fiber, nutritionally void, full of unhealthy fats, high amounts of sodium and sugar, high-fructose sugar, refined oils, and of course chemicals of all sorts. These makes us vulnerable to deadly diseases like stroke, obesity, diabetes, and cancer to name a few.

Clean eating is not just another diet plan, scheme or fad. Clean eating is a way of life that is pulling in followers by the thousands.
