“Fad” diets often put our health at risk and while achieving short-term results, the problem lies in the so-called “rebound effect”.

Therefore it is advisable to change certain habits at the moment of nourishing ourselves. Clean food aims to eliminate, for example, refined and choose natural foods.

What to know about clean food

Do you know what clean food is?  Discover its benefits!

Basically it is a lifestyle where you eat “clean” foods, that is, they have not been subjected to chemical or artificial treatments.

In some cases people choose to eliminate gluten, dairy and grains from the diet and consume only raw things.

Clean food is increasingly followed by celebrities who want to look good and be healthy, as is the case of Gwyneth Paltrow, Katy Perry or Miranda Kerr.

Even in social networks we can find many testimonies of people who started with this diet and not only lost weight, but stopped getting sick.

Eliminating everything processed and refined is one of the pillars of this type of food that, of course, has its followers and their detractors .

For some it is becoming quite popular and is believed to be intended for single women up to 30 years of age obsessed with the body.

However, we should leave stereotypes aside and think about the benefits of change .

Clean feed: between benefits and taboos

Those people who decide to start with this “diet” may be looking for a healthier way to feed themselves and want to let go of so much canned, frozen or manufactured food .

Others may opt for a clean diet due to a health problem such as obesity, cholesterol or arthritis.

One of the “cons” that this diet plan may have is that it can be more expensive than eating “normally”, since fruits and vegetables, as well as legumes and organic foods, are not always affordable.

On the other hand it can lead to obsession and restriction of many meals. This leads, for example, to having difficulty attending a dinner, meeting or party where nothing served is “fit”.

But, of course, it’s not all bad news, because cleansing the body of ingested toxins makes us look slimmer , physically fit and with the most beautiful skin and hair.

We should not be fooled by the comments of the staunch supporters of clean food on social networks.

More than anything, because it is good to eliminate dairy products, we need an alternative to replace them, such as vegetable milks (which, of course, cost twice as much as that obtained from the cow).

Principles of clean food

Eating clean could be a good advertising slogan. It is actually the goal of this type of food based on returning to good, natural, homemade and healthy food .

Some pillars or principles of this diet are:

1. Reduce to the maximum the processed ones

Processed or manufactured foods are those that are sold in a box, tin, package or bag and that are full of ingredients impossible to pronounce.

Pay attention to the contents of each container.

2. Choose foods that are not refined

That is, those that are not white. Sugar, flour and rice should be whole (brown).

  • It is also advisable to add whole grains such as millet, quinoa or amaranth.
  • Do not leave aside the vegetables (lentils, chickpeas, beans).
  • In the case of “clean” sweeteners we find honey (if it is organic), sugar cane juice and maple syrup.

3. Do not forget the fats, proteins and hydrates

  • Proteins are essential for muscle building and for reducing appetite.
  • Fats have their benefits, if they are healthy (such as those provided by blue fish).
  • Carbohydrates, on the other hand give us the energy necessary to do sport or any daily activity. In proper measures are important for the body.

4. Pay attention to sugar, salt and trans fats

One of the main problems of manufactured or refined foods is that they contain good amounts of fats, sugars and sodium .

This is why cholesterol, overweight and diabetes are so common today. While you do not have to eradicate them completely, try to reduce the consumption of those foods in the composition of which these ingredients are included.

5. Make 6 daily intakes

It is not only the basis of clean nutrition, but also many diets to lose weight. It is better 6 small meals than 3 copious ones.

The daily intake should include a good breakfast, a mid-morning snack, a lunch, an afternoon snack, a snack at sunsetand a light dinner.

This keeps anxiety and appetite at bay,  as well as stable blood sugar levels.

It is fundamental to make any diet not obsess or label “foods” as “evil”. There is nothing wrong from time to time eating a piece of cake or a chocolate chip cookie.

Of course, as long as it is the exception and not the rule.
