Secrets of Success

Eat "Clean" Most Of The Time



This means eliminate most processed foods and eat whole, natural foods such as fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, complex carbohydrates and unsalted nuts (almonds, cashews, walnuts). An easy way to remember if a food is clean is: "If man made it, don't eat it". Stay away from foods that contain refined sugar, hydrogenated & trans fats, preservatives and any ingredients on the label you can't pronounce. Eliminate or significantly reduce alcohol. (OK - I'm still working on this last one!)
