The Eat Clean Diet

Celebrities are ditching their detox diets for an easier approach by following the Eat Clean Diet.  It's a easy approach to healthy eating without diets that involve super detoxes, starvation or giving up everything you love.  By cutting the junk out and focusing on foods that provide your body with nourishment, you'll feel fuller, even though you're eating less. You'll also have a healthy glow, feel less sluggish and easily lose any extra pounds.

Celebs who favor the Eat Clean Diet include: Jennifer Aniston, Demi Moore, Gwyneth Paltrow, JLo and Geri Halliwell and man;y more!  To follow The Eat Clean Diet, it's pretty simple.  Limit processed foods, fast foods, ready meals, salty snacks, diet and regular sodas and foods high in sugar like chocolate, cookies and cakes, contain artificial additives and lack vitamins, minerals and fibre your body needs to work efficiently.  Keep them as every other day or once a week treats.  Here is a list of things you can do to start eating clean.

Limit Caffeine
Cutting down on caffeine can stop your body absorbing essential vitamins and minerals and leave you frazzled. If you have a five-a-day habit, try cutting back to one or two cups of java a week.

Drink Water before Every Meal
Dieters who drink two glasses of water before meals shed more pounds than those who only count calories, according to a new US study. If the stomach is full of water, you'll feel fuller and so eat less.

Reclaim your kitchen
Cook meals from scratch, so you know they won't have nasty additives.

Eat More Fruit, Vegetables, Nuts and Seeds
They fill you up with fewer calories, while providing you with essential nutrients for glowing skin and hair.

Cut back on alcohol
Alcohol is full of empty calories that cling to your waistline, so don't drink every day. When you plan to indulge, eat a healthy dinner first.

Perfect your portion sizes
A portion of meat or fish should be roughly the size of a pack of cards, and carbohydrates should be the size of your fist.  Remember to always fill your plate with veges and eat less meat.

Sprinkle less salt
Adults should eat no more than 6g of salt a day. Less salt reduces bloating.

Say NO to trans fats
Trans fats are man-made, chemicallyaltered vegetable oils. Even small amounts raise your heart disease risk more then other foods.

Ditch the 'diet' foods
Diet foods (frozen and otherwise) tend to have very little nutritional value, are highly processed and full of food additives that may trick the brain into eating more!  That's right!  Diet foods are just as bad as processed foods so stick to real, whole foods instead.
