You may not have heard of clean eating. Or you may have heard of it, but have no idea what it actually is. It is much easier to understand than you may think though.When you are trying to lose weight or tone up then the most important thing is to ensure that your diet is ‘clean’. Clean eating isn’t just a diet, it’s a lifestyle choice, which is a much better way to live as dieting often leads to cravings, and ultimately a diet will end. Then you are left where you started.
One common misperception that many people have when it comes to fat loss is that fruit should be omitted from your diet plan. You might have read somewhere that fruit is high in sugar, so thinking that you should be cutting all sugar from your diet, fruit got the boot.
Proper caloric intake is not just beneficial to weight loss goals, but is necessary for survival, efficiency and optimal function in daily life. I think it is important to approach the topic of caloric intake with a diversity of goals in mind: caloric and nutrient intake for health, weight maintenance, weight loss, and/or weight gain. Like exercise, diet and nutrition is not "one size fits all," but is unique to each individual.

If you enjoy eating spicy foods you're in luck. Besides being delicious, spicy foods have been shown to increase metabolism. That doesn't mean you can cover your junk food in hot sauce and make it healthy. Just eat healthy and add a little spice to it. Better Body, Better life!
Tip of the Day: are you still weighing yourself...
Firstly the SCALE LIES!!!! If you're the type of person that jumps on the scale every time you go to the gym, trust me you're really playing head trips with yourself. If you just worked out, and than jumped on the dam scale, it's only going to show water loss, NOT FAT LOSS, which is what your target goal is.
We all want to feel the burn when working out, but what about the shakes? I'm not talking about feeling dizzy from not eating enough or from coming up too fast after doing a forward bend. When your body is working really hard, either holding a challenging position or toward the end of a set, your muscles start to unintentionally quiver.
