Hello fellow heath-goers!!
I want to start by saying i am in no way an expert in clean eating, just someone that enjoys a healthy, active lifestyle and strives to treat her body well to live that life better .
My first interaction with clean eating came in October last year when my mother-in-law told me about the beneficial aspects of Chia seeds. I did some research of my own and by January, without knowing it, i had started on my own clean eating diet. 1 lost 2.5 kilos in 10 days, unaided and using my very own eating plan. A few weeks later i saw reference to ‘clean eating’ on a friends personal training website and started researching more. The more i looked the less i found(!); ‘clean eating diet plans filled with highly processed, expensive and exotic items.
Just like everyone else i have been through diets-a-plenty, just recently having participated in the ‘I Quit Sugar’ diet. To my frustration i find them all to be difficult to carry on and only ‘short term solutions’. I don’t believe we should deprive our bodies of sugar (especially natural sugars) or fat, or carbs.
So i’ve decided to try and find a balance. We were born to live of the land so live off the land i shall. For the next week i will show you how you can easily replace normal meals with unprocessed foods, while monitoring weight, mood, energy levels and cost to show you all the benefits of living healthily.
The diet i have made up is my own, made up simply from my own experiences and research on clean eating and healthy living. I’ll try and keep it as simple and informative as possible allowing you to take it as far as you like or just stick to the basics.
I’ll be eating every 3 hours and I’ll of course also be cutting out alcohol, soft drinks etc as well as consuming 5mls of water per kilo of body weight each day. And the best part is, i will really be making each and every dish so you know a real person has cooked and enjoyed it.
So here’s to a great week, see you tomorrow for day 1!!
