WE over complicate so many things for ourselves. Once I gave into this lifestyle and I went all in, I realized how simple it really was to have true balance.
CLEAN EATING, it really is a simple concept. Eat more FOOD, whole, natural foods with plenty of variety. Doing your best to pair lean proteins with complex carbs like fruits, veggies, and whole grains...MOST of the TIME. Do this while you also eat less CRAP. Ditch the highly processed foods that are often a trigger to binges, cycles of bad choices, lack of energy and guilt.
You can continue to enjoy, on occasion, some favorites. But always be asking WHAT that food is going to do for your body and mind. Giving into mindless cravings...is it really going to fill a void? Nope. Are those whole, natural choices going to FUEL your body for life, for energy, for general well being and lead to greater confidence? Yup, they will.
Top those good choices off with plenty of water each day and you can call yourself a clean eater. That doesn't mean you won't indulge in TREATS (unclean favorites) from time to time, but you do limit them and approach them with all new principles and meaning. Goodness, I may have even talked myself out of starting my 3 week detox just because of the temptation of a cupcake ahead 😜. I had already planned my week ahead based on the detox, but I mapped out a balanced plan for the week instead (after that clicklist pick up). Haha, it will still happen, just adjusted a bit. It’s my plan and it’s still a good one for the week ahead.
