What Is Clean Eating – How to Eat Clean | Fitness Magazine

Clean eating is a deceptively simple concept. Rather than revolving around the idea of ingesting more or less of specific things (for instance, fewer calories or more protein), the idea is more about being mindful of the food’s pathway between its origin and your plate. At its simplest, clean eating is about eating whole foods, or “real” foods — those that are un- or minimally processed, refined, and handled, making them as close to their natural form as possible. However, modern food production has become so sophisticated that simply eating whole foods can be a challenging proposition these days.Clean Eating

So why, exactly, is processing so bad — especially if it’s something as simple as adding heat? Wait for it, its complicated

Processing is not always bad,” says Jessica Fanzo, assistant professor of nutrition at Columbia University. “Often processing removes toxins or bacteria, or allows for us to eat certain types of foods in off-season due to freezing or canning.” (Pasteurized milk, anyone?) Processing “can also include altering the consistency or taste of food to make it more appealing,” Fanzo adds. So that delicious post-workout kale-celery-spinach-banana smoothie you had? Enjoy that virtuous feeling knowing that you were likely able to down that giant amount of greens because your treat was somewhat processed.

Thanks to extensive research that has linked eating whole foods with good health, “we do know that largely plant-based diets are healthy,” says Fanzo. Multiple studies have shown that diets heavy on fruits and vegetables can curb or prevent certain life-threatening conditions and diseases, such as high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, and cardiovascular disease. Plus, there’s research linking diets high in fruits and veggies to healthy weight management and glowing skin and hair — as if you needed more motivation.
