Introduction: Why Eat Clean? What Does It Mean?
For the next 30 days you’ll start on the path to a new way of eating and a new lifestyle. Clean eating isn’t about deprivation and it’s also not about spending tons of money at the supermarket on fancy foods.
Clean eating is not a diet – though you will probably (you will) lose weight. Clean eating is about loving nourishing food, loving your body, and learning to fuel yourself in a way that you never imagined was possible. Learning the best way to live.
You don’t have to spend days in the kitchen preparing meals. Clean eating isn’t about complicated and time-consuming recipes.
What it’s about is eating whole clean foods; foods that are free from artificial colorings, preservatives, and artificial flavorings. It’s about avoiding foods that have been manufactured to last weeks, or months, on the shelf by stripping away their natural oils and nutrients and “enriching” them with man-made ingredients.
Over the next 30 days you’re going to begin to shift from your current way of eating to a clean eating lifestyle. It’s a fun challenge that will positively impact your life in ways that you cannot imagine.
It won’t be completely easy, and there will be challenges. With the tips and tricks provided you’ll make it through those challenges.
Why Change Your Diet?
So why change your diet?
You literally are what you eat; to the point where every last molecule in your body will have come from something you consumed (or your mother consumed if you’re still young!). This is perhaps most apparent when you look at protein.
When you consume protein, your body breaks it down into the constituent amino acids. These amino acids are then in turn recombined in order to form our muscles, our hormones, our bones and even our brains!
Meanwhile, we use acids from our foods to trigger reactions between the different nutrients in our diets and to allow them to combine and dissolve as necessary.
Vitamins and minerals perform a range of other tasks, further aiding in the construction of various body parts, hormones, neurotransmitters, bones and more. Your body simply recycles what you put into it and uses it to keep on building you. At the same time, it is also our food that gives us the energy we need to function.
Carbohydrates and fats fuel the process of constantly healing, growing and changing our bodies as well as being used for their nutrition as well. And our bodies adapt to the amount of energy and the amount of sustenance they’re given. If we don’t get enough of what we need, then gradually our bodies change shape to do without.
If we eat too many calories, we store them as fats. If we consume too much sugar, we become less sensitive to insulin… So understand this: our bodies are constantly changing. The only question then is whether you want to be growing and improving, or deteriorating!
The biggest deciding factor in determining this outcome? That would be your diet!
There are actually countless reasons to put in the effort here. As we’ve just learned; our bodies are literally made from what we eat. That means that the more good, clean food we eat, the more healthy and powerful we look! Of course that means more lean muscle but it also means better skin, hair
and nails. And whiter eyes…
Moreover though, the more nutritious food you eat – and the less rubbish – the better everything will function. The biggest causes of death by far are preventable progressive diseases and many of these could be counteracted with the right diet.
If you eat right, you’ll be less at risk of just about every serious health problem under the sun and your life expectancy will be significantly increased.
What’s more is that the food you eat will also contribute to the way you feel on a day-to-day basis. If you eat the right diet then you can expect to have higher energy levels, a better mood and even a higher IQ.
You’ll have better energy efficiency and this will allow you to concentrate better, to see further, to think faster and to perform better in athletics. In short, a good diet makes you better in every way. And when you’re better, you perform better and life gets better.
The First Step to Eating Clean
First step is to figure out your why? Why do you want to challenge yourself to a different way of eating or a different lifestyle? Can you write it down on a piece of paper?
After you’ve written down your “why” on paper, let’s move on to the next steps!
