What Is Clean Eating?

I have heard this so many times ” Eat clean, live longer.” Well, call me old school but I had no idea what it meant when someone told me not to worry much I eat clean.

Out of curiosity I looked up the term “clean eating” and I found out what they meant.

Eating clean simply means to cook at home, fresh vegetables and lean meats.

But no one is perfect by far.

I was raised to eat healthy but over the years the power of suggestion and laziness crept into my brain, I bought the boxed dinners that are full of salt, the cakes and pies loaded with sugar and worst of all I filled the freezer with boxed meals. I began to go out to eat more fast food, even buffet tables.

Then one day I was fat! yes being 5′ feet tall and almost two pounds is fat!

I knew my way back and it was gonna take time and work. Back to my beans and potatoes, oh wait, I also developed diabetes so no potatoes, beans and greens, that`ll work.

I looked in the fridge and the freezer and I gave away all the food that was processed, in a box or flour based… Yes I cried for the pasta!

Within months I had dropped 35 pounds and was back on my way to get old fashion eating clean!
