What Exactly is Clean Eating?

on diet

The term ‘clean eating’ has grown in popularity in the weight loss world as people are beginning to take more of an active interest in the quality of food they are eating instead of just the quantity, and how where their food comes from can effect not only their waistlines, but more importantly, their health.

Clean eating is based on the principle of consuming whole, single ingredient foods to provide the body with as many nutrients as possible while eliminating any processing your food goes through from the time it is harvested to the time it hits your table. The idea is to eat your food as close to its natural form as possible to maintain its nutrient density and avoid harmful and unnecessary additives that can jeopardize your health. By doing this, we can avoid several dieting pitfalls and health effects that come with food processing. Basically, if it comes with a nutrition label, skip it, even if it’s marketed as or popularly considered a “healthy” choice. If it ever passed through a processing plant it is not considered a clean food.

While the focus is on consuming whole foods to provide your body with the best nutrition possible, there is no denying that choosing whole, nutrient dense foods over processed junk will also aid in weight loss, making it a successful dieting strategy for those interested in learning and implementing proper nutrition, making it a more successful, well-rounded approach to food and nutrition over all.

The Skinny on Teatox Diets

Cup of green tea for weight loss

by Mariah Edwards-Heflin

For centuries, herbal teas have been revered for their health benefits. Originating in southwest China, Tibet and Northern India, tea has long been used for its supposed medicinal and spiritual properties.
Tea is now thought to possess a powerful ability to melt stubborn body fat, but studies show that although tea may provide many other benefits, this one may be the offspring of wishful thinking.
Celebrities such as Kylie Jenner, Hillary Duff, Vanessa Hudgens, and Lindsay Lohan are touting the miracles of teatoxing. Big name detox teas like Fit Tea, My Slim Tea and even coffees like Skinny Coffee Club are taking over young celebs’ social media accounts, taking credit for helping them lose weight before playing a role, or to stay refreshed and invigorated.
They sound great, right? But is it really possible for a nice cozy drink to give you the body of your dreams?

Celebrity Trainer Jorge Cruise’s Tiny and Full Promises Results with One Simple Change

tiny and full

Celebrity trainer Jorge Cruise‘s new book Tiny and Full will be released just in time for the holidays and promises you a smaller waist by only changing one meal a day.

The premise is simple: follow a vegan diet for breakfast. Then, go back to incorporating animal-based foods for lunch and dinner, while still keeping a heavy emphasis on plant-based foods.

“When I say vegan,” Cruise told Diets In Review exclusively, “I mean in the truest, most natural form of vegan. A whole food (minimally processed), plant-based diet. Potato chips and Coke are technically vegan, but I encourage the healthiest, most natural form of vegan possible with whole, plant-based foods.”

Why just breakfast? you may be asking. There are two main reasons.

“There are numerous studies showing that determination and drive are almost always strongest in the morning hours when you are fresh,” explains Cruise. “This is because willpower is like a muscle — it’s strongest when it has been given good rest and restoration.” Focusing on breakfast, when your resolve is highest, gives you the best odds for success.

Just one meal is all it takes, though. Cruise makes it clear he is not an advocate for becoming a full time vegan.

“For most of us, it’s a lifestyle change that is just too hard to maintain,” said Cruise. “There are more people who have quit being vegan than there are those who are actual vegans. I intentionally created Tiny and Full as a part-time vegan program to help you get the benefits of the vegan diet but avoid the negatives.”
