So after all these posts on clean eating, are you thinking about starting a clean eating plan? Although it’s a huge lifestyle change for most people and requires a lot of commitment, it can be done! And you will feel so much better! Here are some tips on how to form a clean eating plan.
Take a closer look at what you’re currently eating. In order to begin a cleaner eating plan, it’s important to know what foods in your diet need to be eliminated or adjusted. Consider starting a food journal for about a week to figure out which areas need improvement.
Look for healthier alternatives. While you’re probably want to give up your parlor pizza, this doesn’t mean you can’t have pizza at all! Look for clean eating recipes that contain natural ingredients. You might consider trying a pizza made with a cauliflower crust, for example.
Know which areas of the grocery store to shop in. The general rule of thumb is that you should shop the outer parameter of the store. Avoid the middle aisles, which is where you’re more likely to find processed foods like boxed mac ‘n cheese.
Take the plunge. A big mistake that many people make is slowly weaning themselves from their former diet. Instead of taking it slow, quit cold turkey and jump right in. I have found this the only way for me. This will help you avoid putting it off until another day.
These are just tips on how to form a clean eating plan! While it will take adjustment, you will find that it gets easier with time. Questions? Just ask in the comments!
