What Is the Eat Clean Diet?

The Eat Clean Diet is my love letter to your health. It’s all about embracing foods in their natural state and saying a firm NO to anything processed or unwholesome. This isn’t just a diet; it’s a lifestyle—a way to honor your body and nourish it with the optimal nutrients.

Core Principles

Honor Whole Foods

Let’s cherish foods that come to us just as nature intended. The less tinkering, the better!

Shun Processed Foods

Say goodbye to anything with artificial nasties, additives, or preservatives. Your body deserves better.

Regular Refueling

Small, regular meals are the key to keep your inner fire burning and avoid overeating.

Hydrate Like a Pro

Water isn’t just essential, it’s your best friend—aiding digestion and helping your body absorb all the good stuff while flushing out waste.

Harmonize Your Nutrients

Aim for a synthesis of lean protein, complex carbs, and healthy fats in each meal. It’s all about balance!

Key Benefits

Master Your Weight

With nutrient-dense foods as your allies, weight loss and maintenance become a joyful journey.

Boundless Energy

Regular, balanced meals are your ticket to vibrant energy all day long. Say goodbye to the afternoon slump!

Shield Against Chronic Diseases

A diet rich in whole foods is your secret weapon against heart disease, diabetes, and certain types of cancer.

Nourish Your Mind

Nutritious eating isn’t just about body health—it feeds your brain, too, helping you feel more positive and clear-headed.

Happy Gut, Happy You

Whole foods, especially those rich in fiber, are a treat for your tummy. Your digestive system will thank you.

Alcohol can interfere with your body’s metabolic processes, and artificial sweeteners can trick your body into craving more sugar, potentially leading to weight gain.

Timing & Portion Control

Getting the best results on the Eat Clean™ diet is also about how much you eat and when. Here are the key principles to keep in mind:

Eat at Regular Intervals

Eating six small meals a day helps maintain steady blood sugar levels, curb cravings, and boost metabolism. Eat breakfast within an hour of getting up. Then have 4-5 smaller meals every 2-3 hours afterwards.

Keep Portions Manageable

Focus on balanced portions—fill half your plate with vegetables, a quarter with lean protein, and the remaining quarter with whole grains or healthy fats. Shoot for two to three servings of healthy fats per day for best results.

Plan and Prep in Advance

Plan your meals and snacks for the week and prep in advance to avoid last-minute unhealthy choices and ensure you always have Eat Clean™ options on hand.
