Just what exactly IS clean eating? Think the perimeter of a supermarket where you’ll find fresh fruit and vegetables, meat, fish, poultry, pork and other proteins. Clean eating means nothing processed, canned, or with ingredients whose names we can’t pronounce. Food as it comes from the Earth. It also means no rice, potatoes, pasta, sugar, and bread.
Here are the top clean diet plans for you to try.
The Paleo Diet
It’s also known as the “caveman” diet, and the weight loss component of this eating plan allows for three meals a day and a piece of fruit, which is limited to one apple, a small grapefruit, or a cup of raspberries, blueberries, strawberries or blackberries. You’re also allowed half a sweet potato and a few tablespoons of nuts.
Each meal consists of 4-6 ounces each of a protein (meat, poultry or eggs) and vegetables. Diabetics using this meal plan need to break it up more and have small meals of 2-3 ounces each of protein and vegetables every two hours. Tea, coffee, broth, and water/sparkling water are allowed beverages.
