Thanks. I have slowly been moving in this direction and I typically walk 10,000 or more steps most days, but my weight won't budge. I know all the common sense stuff and, according to those, I should see a difference any time. I'm just impatient, I guess.
I have noticed an overall improvement in the way I feel since I started eating clean at the first of the year. I am have less stomach upset eating this way. I have less pain and aches; however, exercise helps with that as well. I have combined eating clean with increased exercise to lose weight. Since eating clean is comparable to eating natural, you avoid preservatives, salt, etc. I avoid frozen meals and processed foods when possible. Honestly, losing body fat isn't complicated. You need to eat a well balanced diet and consume good calories within your daily allotment. You need to increase exercise. Doing both needs to create a 3,500 deficit per week to lose one pound of fat a week. There are no magic pills or fad diets to do this for anyone. Start out slow learning the simple things and each week try to learn something new so that you are not overwhelmed. You'll build from a good foundation and be more likely to experience a positive outcome.
Slow and steady. Eat clean and as close to nature as possible. Avoid refined, highly processed foods.
I'm new to clean eating, just on the cusp of starting, really. It seems people make references to losing weight but I would love to see specifics on how that works. Does it just happen naturally with clean food or is there some sort of plan?
