Welcome to the team. Transitioning to clean eating is a process. You will tend towards the foods you are use to. Just keep trying new recipes and new fruits and vegetables. And if you find your stomach growling or you almost have flu like systems, that is your body detoxing. You will feel better if you continue on the natural foods. I have been moving in this direction for two years and am finally at a place where I not longer crave the foods that are processed. The only packed foods I buy are, whole grain rice crackers, brown rice pasta and canned beans and tomato products.

I'm not losing weight...I'm getting rid of it! I have not intention of finding it again!

I'd like to welcome you too!

Just think of foods in their most natural, organic (if possible) form, preferably fresh and raw (veggies)--that is the most simple way to 'eat clean'.

I hope we can help you out along the way . . .

Update! NO MORE Wiggle room on my weight! Still figuring out how to keep balance and stay in charge. Staying active but could step it up again.

I'm curious what happened that you are calling "slip ups." I've found that eating (in general, not just "clean") is a whole lot easier when you view every food as simply a choice, instead of good or bad. Also, let your body guide you (not just a book - which, let's face it, is only as good as it makes sense to you. There are no hard and fast rules). How do you feel PHYSICALLY after every food? This is where a food journal is super helpful. Feel free to send me a message with any questions - I pretty much make everything from scratch :)

Welcome to Eating Clean!!

Look at your "slip-ups" as a learning experience. Why did you slip up? What can you do next time you are in the same situation so you don't slip up?

Happy to help with any assistance I can provide. We are all in this together!

Hi. I am on day one of eating clean. I did a trial run yesterday and did pretty well, with only one or two slip ups. I have the book, but I'm finding it a little difficult to navigate and am hoping that I can get some answers/advice/tips through this forum.
