If you are still struggling with losing weight, lets take a hard look at what you’re eating. I have lost and kept off 38 lbs for the past two years, but I work at it daily.
Clean eating becomes a way of life. The more I read about what the government is allowing to go into our food, the easier it has become for me to eat one ingredient foods!! Here is a list of what I have cut out of my diet:
Fast Food have not eaten any of this junk in 2 years. Probably since watching Chef Jamie Oliver’s video about McDonald’s washing their ‘pink slime’ in ammonia – kind of grossed me out. Search it on YouTube….crazy stuff.
Processed Foods ie; anything that is in the middle of the grocery store and is a quick fix. For best results, stay on the perimeter of the grocery store!
I do eat limited Greek yogurt – the only kind I buy is Fage Plain Unsweetened (I add my own fruit, liquid Stevia, PB2 to change it up). I drink Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk instead. I also eat occasionally, raw, organic cheeses, but never the processed stuff
I don’t eat anything with soy in it. Start reading labels, there is so much stuff with soy. Soy is really only good in it’s natural state – Edamane in limited quantities.
Talk about reducing swelling, take grains out of your diet and see what happens. Read ‘The Wheat Belly’. Farmers just don’t farm grains it the way they did when our grandparents were young. It’s crazy. I do eat Gluten Free Oats every morning.
Meat- Red Meat and Pork
I gave those up about a year ago. I never have digestion issues or heartburn anymore. I feel so much better since I don’t eat it. Plus, I get plenty of protein from other sources. I only eat free range, organic Chicken and Wild Caught Fish. (Of course the fish is going to be over, since the Japan radiation leak is taking over all the fish in the Pacific now).
That’s just a little bit about my clean eating diet. The funny thing is, I’m never hungry, because I nourish myself with 5-6 meals a day. I still stay within my target calorie intake of 1800-2000 calories a day. I know that seems like a high amount, but once you’re at your target weight, you then have to feed your body, to match your exercise level.
