Completely clueless on what to put in my body I had no idea what it even meant to eat clean, I thought it was organic or veggies only. Everyone has a relationship with food. Some of us eat with our emotions some of us eat when no ones looking and some of us have food phobias, typically this is due to lack of knowledge on what to really feed our bodies. Eating clean is anything from the earth. Lean Proteins, lots of berries and fruits any vegetables and good sources of fat, like avocado, raw almonds, coconut, and olive oils. Think of your body like a car, you want to give it the best possible fuel possible. The best GAS on the market. Same thing for your body, you have only been given one, so treat it with respect, fuel it with amazing foods and will allow your body to run forever.
I eat clean all year round, I have a cheat meal 1x a week usually consisting of sushi, whole wheat pizza ice cream or a big sandwich. I think its good to cheat I believe it keeps you focused for the week. For some people they need 1-2 smaller cheats throughout the week, others need to just stay clear of anything that could tempt them because it will lead to an unstoppable binge effect. Here is an example of what my meals would look like. What you eat in private you’ll wear in public.
