Eating Clean: 3 Methods – Chino Boot Camp


“Eating Clean” is a trend that has recently become popular among fitness enthusiasts. While it may appear to be a trend, the meaning behind it should be a strong value in every household, and is not a fad diet. In simple terms, eating clean means eating foods in their natural state every time it is possible. For those who are interested, here are three methods to eating clean.

Method 1:

Avoid all processed food, such as processed meat (hot dogs, hamburgers, etc.), processed cheese, and all other processed foods. Only eat the standard three meals a day, breakfast, lunch and dinner with some healthy snacks such as fruit or vegetables and protein in between.  Remember that if your food is packaged then it may not be too good for your health, so try to avoid it.  Increase daily activities such as exercise.

Method 2:

The second method is based on a diet of unprocessed foods eaten in several meals throughout the day. This method stabilizes blood sugar, increases metabolism and keeps the body strong and healthy throughout the day, avoiding “highs” and “lows.” By eating this way, your blood sugar stabilizes and you keep your body in balance. Not only will this rid bad chemicals from the body, it also promotes weight loss as those chemicals contain empty calories.

The reason this philosophy works so well is because food that is eaten in its natural state digests slower and slower digestion creates much better blood sugar stability. By only consuming three meals a day the body’s metabolism and blood sugar levels dive, and the sudden need for energy causes one to eat unhealthy meals. Keeping the blood sugar stabilized throughout the day helps the person to keep food cravings under control and the levels of energy stable.

More specifically, this method has a formula.  This formula is based on the daily consumption of the right amount of calories in every meal and nutrient ratios which is 40% protein, 25% fat and 35% carbohydrates. In addition, this method requires eating a balanced meal every 3 to 4 hours, which adds up to approximately five or six smaller meals a day.

Method 3:

 Get educated; take it upon yourself to learn what clean eating is.  Commercials may be misleading, you have look at labels if you are eating packaged food and make sure you are getting what you expect.   Use the internet as a source to look up anything in question.
