So I started eating clean last Thursday. Eating no sweets and very little processed anything. I didn't realize how hard this really is. I thought that people that ate "whole foods" were nuts. But after all the research and different documentaries I've watched and read I have learned so much. I knew that processed foods weren't the greatest for you, but who know that eating canned veg and fruit were just as bad. I have also learned that we were never meant to be strictly carb eaters and carnivores. Our ancestors ate off of the land until they hunted something and meat was a rearity.
I have watched and read several pieces about people that have eaten mostly fresh veg, fruits and little protein and they were so healthy in the end and had more energy. I want to be that way so bad! So I'm attempting to do it.
I have eaten very little sweets and major processed carbs like pastas and bread. I haven't totally ruled it out but I have really really limited it. I bought whole grain homemade bread from a local bakery to help my needs for occasional sandwich and toast. My protiens are still eaten but not always in animal form. I have almonds on hand at all times for that extra hunger pain and peanut butter measured out is also a good substitute as well.
Hubby and I will be investing in a juicer soon enough and we will be able to juice our own fruits and veg and be even better at eating cleaning and supporting our local farmers (we live in farm country).
So far I have lost 2 lbs and I haven't felt better! I am so full of energy and my hubby has really take notice to the very very subtle shrinkage in my body. :) I recommend reading everything there is on eating clean both good and bad! Find out if its right for you and give it a try!
