Tips On How To Eat Clean

Read the full article here

As the formula says…
10% genetics, 10% training/exercise, 80% nutrition
So that shows you how important what you put in your body is to the overall condition of your health.

Eating clean, working out, taking care of yourself is a lifestyle not a diet.
It’s something you will do day in, day out.
Not a diet that most people view as restrictive eating for a little while until they lose weight, then go back to their prior eating habits and gain the weight back

How to eat clean
Eat breakfast daily. (This is actually part of the Fit for 2012 Challenge)
Eat organic fresh fruits and veggies (6-8 servings a day) (This is also part of the Fit for 2012 Challenge).
Eat 6 small meals throughout the day.
Make sure to have a lunch bag or cooler with clean foods to take with you so you won’t get caught in a bind trying to find something if you’re at work or on the road.
Drink 6-8 glasses of water (yep, this is also part of the Fit for 2012 Challenge).
Take a Thermos or reusable water bottle with you so you can drink throughout the day.
Eat 2-3 servings of healthy fats a day.
Eat lean proteins.
Eat nutrient dense foods.
