What Is Clean Eating?

Healthy Holiday Eating Tips

Clean eating is a dietary approach that advocates consuming food in its “most natural state.” Purported benefits of clean eating include weight loss, increased energy and all-around improved health. There is no singular definition for clean eating, which often leads to confusion about the practice. However, clean eating usually requires eating unprocessed and unrefined products, such as whole grains , fruits, vegetables, lean meats and other foods that don’t contain artificial ingredients or preservatives. There are a few simple clean eating guidelines to follow, including eating five to six times a day, drinking at least two liters of water a day, avoiding food that has a long list of ingredients and steering clear of foods and drinks that are http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/garcinia-cambogia-extract—crucial-data-released-231403591.html high in sugar, saturated fats or trans fats, according to Clean Eating Magazine. The recent rise of the clean eating movement has sparked a number of dietary books on the subject, most notably Tosca Reno’s popular “The Eat-Clean Diet” (Robert Kennedy Publishing, 2007). In reference to Reno’s book, American Dietetic Association spokeswoman Roberta Anding told WebMD that readers should follow the book’s basic guidelines, but skip the nutrition information and advice on dietary supplements, which aren’t backed up by scientific evidence. In a post on Science-Based Medicine , a blog run by medically trained professionals who evaluate medical treatments and products, Ontario pharmacist Scott Gavura wrote that he doesn’t recommend Reno’s influential book, garcinia cambogia or any other works on clean eating.

Mediterranean diet: Heart-healthy eating plan

However, throughout the Mediterranean region, bread is eaten plain or dipped in olive oil not eaten with butter or margarine, which contains saturated or trans fats. Nuts are another part of a healthy Mediterranean diet. Nuts are high in fat, but most of the fat is healthy. Because nuts are high in calories, they should not be eaten in large amounts generally no more than a handful a day. For the best nutrition, avoid candied or honey-roasted and heavily salted nuts. Choose healthier fats The focus of the Mediterranean diet isn’t on limiting total fat consumption, but rather on choosing healthier types of fat. The Mediterranean diet discourages saturated fats and hydrogenated oils (trans fats), both of which contribute to heart disease.
