At LiveFit, we know it takes both training smart and eating clean to feel our best.
Eating right has never been easier, but we know the information out there can be overwhelming. What is Paleo? What’s Primal? What does clean eating actually mean?
What is clean eating?
It’s easy to get caught up in eating a convenient, over-processed diet, and the concept of clean eating is really an antidote to our modern-day lifestyle where sugar, refined grains, trans fats and alcohol are readily available.
Clean eating gives us what our bodies need to function optimally, which makes our daily activities, and our fitness efforts, easier.
Clean eating will:
- Give you more energy
- Help rid your body of chemicals used in processed foods
- Improve the appearance of your skin
- Clear the mental fog
- Save on your grocery budget
The Paleo Diet
One of the most popular clean eating plans is the Paleo Diet. People have not only found success in integrating Paleo into their lifestyle; scientific research has proven its benefits to our health.
Paleo is a way of eating that mimics the eating habits of hunter-gatherers. It focuses on sources of lean protein, fruits and vegetables, and healthy fats, while minimizing the intake of dairy, grains and legumes.
Studies have shown eating a Paleo-style diet can not only aid in weight loss, but lessen the risk of the chronic diseases, such as cardiovascular and autoimmune diseases, that plague us.
The bottom line? This way of eating gives you the building blocks for getting lean and strong.
