Simplify your nutrition with Shakeology®, Your Daily Dose of Dense Nutrition®
Here are some of the principles that I follow:
1. Eat 5-6 small meals each day.
2. Eat breakfast every day, within an hour of rising. For me, this is Shakeology most mornings!
3. Eat a combination of lean protein & complex carbs at each meal.
4. Include healthy fats daily.
5. Drink LOTS of water.
6. Depend on fresh fruits & veggies for fiber, vitamins, nutrients enzymes.
7. Adhere to proper portion sizes.
Some things to avoid are:
Processed foods, particularly white flour, and sugar
Chemically charged foods.
Foods containing preservatives
Artificial foods such as processed cheese slices
Saturated and trans fats.
Sugar loaded beverages like soda and juice
Limit alcohol intake
All calorie-dense foods containing little or no nutritional value.
One of my favorite things to do is to take foods that are not so clean such as pizza and wings, and to turn them into clean foods just by tweaking the ingredients!

Are you unsure of what the whole "clean eating"
concept is? Clean eating does not mean you eat cupcakes while cleaning your house, or washing your food really good before eating it although those are both pretty funny. I tried to search a textbook definition for you all but decided I would give you my own definition instead. Basically, clean eating is eating things that have nutritional value. You know what they are and where they came from and your ancestors way back in the day probably could have eaten the same thing. For example, when you look at the ingredients list on a package, you should be able to read the ingredients and there should be a limited number of them. If something called XXXred5instalollyponixheartattackian is on the ingredients, then you shouldn't be eating it. Also, High fructose corn syrup or even sugar, in general, shouldn't be the first ingredient!
I like to think of the food I eat as "fuel for my body", and I think of my body as a car....the type of car if money was not a factor I would buy....like a nice new shiny Cadillac! To fuel your dream car would you use leftover fuel drained from cars in the junkyard? I know I wouldn't! I would find the best gas possible for it, to keep it running well! It's the same for your body! You put the best fuel possible in your body to get the best results and performance.
