Clean eating is consuming food in its most natural state, or as close to it as possible. It is a lifestyle approach to food and its preparation, leading to an improved life.

Eat six times a day
Three meals and two to three small snacks. Include a lean protein, plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables, and a complex carbohydrate with each meal. This keeps your body energized and burning calories efficiently all day long.

Drink water daily
Drink at least 2 litres of water everyday. Limit your alcohol intake to one glass of antioxidant-rich red wine a day.

Check labels
Clean foods contain just one or two ingredients. Any product with a long ingredient list is considered clean.

Avoid processed and refined foods
This includes white flour, sugar, bread and pasta. Enjoy complex carbs such as whole grains instead.

Stay away from saturated fats
Steer clear of anything high in saturated and trans fats, anything fried or anything high in sugar.

Consume healthy fats
Try to have essential fatty acids, or EFAs, every day.

Portion sizes
Work towards eating within them.

Fresh Food
Eat produce that is seasonal and local.

Slow down 
Never rush through a meal. Food tastes best when eaten slowly.

Take it to go
Pack for work or outings so you always have clean eats on the go.
