Wellbody September Eat Clean
and Feel Lean Challenge
Summer is coming to an end, kids are going back to school and it’s time to create a new healthy eating routine to help you feel energised and well. Sign up your friends and family to join you with this challenge to ensure success!
Tip 1: hydrate
Drinking water before eating ANYTHING as this will help you hydrate and be more mindful of exactly how hungry you are!
Tip 2: Goodbye sugars
You’ll feel leaner and more energised by removing refined sugars from your diet. You can still enjoy the sweetness of fruits and vegetables but beware of your portion control.
Tip 3: Add in vegetables
Use vegetables as your snack. It’s an easy way to get more veg into your diet and they are super lean on calories. Try adding greens to smoothies, vegetables to your eggs or peas to your pasta.
Tip 4: Work on your portions
Palm sized piece of lean protein e.g. grilled chicken or fish, small portion of wholegrains or sweet potato and then fill up on vegetables or salad. Stop eating when you feel satisfied but not full!
Tip 5: Go Meatless
Cutting back on meat can help you save money, help your digestive tract and reduce your saturated fat intake.
Tip 6: Choose whole grains
Wholegrains are a great source of fiber and nutrients to keep your digestive tract healthy eg: whole grain pastas or brown rice..
Tip 7: Make it from scratch
A key part of eating clean is to limit the processed foods you are eating and to make foods you enjoy from scratch. Be organised and plan ahead.
Tip 8: Use herbs & spices
Herbs and spices are a great way to boost the flavor of your food without added salt, sugar or fat.
Tip 9: Say goodbye to white bread
Go with a wholegrain wrap, rye or pitta bread instead and limit it to 1 serving a day.
Tip 10: Reduce alcohol intake
By doing this you’ll be less likely to binge and crave sugary fatty foods.. Save your drinks for the weekend and limit your intake.
