Healthy Food list(s)

So now that you have an idea of what clean eating is and how to do it, let's talk about the FOOD!! Choosing the right types of foods are essential to keeping your diet clean and healthy so it's important to have food lists. Some clean diets are sticker than others so it's important to factor your OWN personal health and fitness goals into they type of food list to choose to follow.


The basics of Clean Eating are simple:
  • Eat a wide-variety of whole, unrefined and unprocessed foods in a form that’s as close as possible to how the foods appear in nature. As Jillian Michaels says, "If it comes from the ground and/or has a mother it's good to eat." Avoid anything man-made.
  • Avoid processed sugars, especially sugary beverages like soda
  • Avoid saturated fat and trans fats, and instead substitute healthy, monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats
  • Always combine complex carbohydrates with lean protein and some healthy fats at every meal (carbohydrates listed below in more detail)
  • Spread your food out over 5-6 smaller meals, consumed every 2-3 hours
  • Eat for maximum nutrient density. In other words, avoid “empty” calories found in fast food, soda, snacks, cakes and cookies, and substitute in nutrient-dense snacks.
  • Pay attention to proper portions and practice portion control
  • Drink lots of water (2 or 3 liters a day.)

Think of these food lists below as general guidelines to what you should include in your food plan. If you have a clean, (or healthy) alternative that's not here, give it a try... These foods are just an example of what can be included, but are certainly not complete lists. Remember you don't have to include everything in your food plan either. Pick and choose what fits best for you according to taste, cost and availability. Preferences change from person to person, so choose what tastes best for you. If you like what you eat, you'll enjoy the plan and stick to it.
