10 day eating CLEAN & LEAN Challenge

Toughen Up: Challenges!

Lately I’ve been eating quite a lot, piling up on more starchy & processed foods than usual, and this has left me feeling bloated, tired, lazy and unmotivated to exercise.

Yayks, what a combo!!!

I’ve made my decision, starting today, I’ll be focusing on my diet for the next 10 days while sharing my food log here with you guys. Feel free to tag along and follow my little journey!

I don’t believe in fad diets and depriving myself from delicious foods, but I do believe that with a little effort and organization,  I can fully satisfy my taste buds while fueling my body with the right nutrients.

Are you up for a little challenge? If so, simply follow the guidelines below, your body will love you for it 🙂

Guidelines:

  • Eat whole foods as much as possible: Try to eliminate all refined foods
    and pile up on fruits, vegetables, whole grains, fish, beans, nuts, seeds.
  • Love your  fruits and veggies: Include them in each one of your meals (ideally, do not over cook them).
  • Avoid sugar: Beware; it hides in many refined and processed foods. If you must snack on processed foods, make sure that these ingredients are not on top of the list (3 first ingredients): barley malt, beet sugar, brown rice syrup, cane juice, corn sweetener, dextrin, dextrose, fructo-oligosaccharides, fruit juice concentrate, glucose, sucrose, invert sugar, polydextrose and turbinado sugar.
  • Eat only when hungry and stop before you are full: Allow your brain to realize that you are full before going for that second portion (20 minutes).
  • Drink up! Drink a glass of water with each meal and throughout the day.

VOILÀ!

By following these simple rules, you will start feeling pretty amazing, pretty fast!
