SMALL, CONSISTENT CHANGES THAT ADD UP TO SIGNIFICANT RESULTS

Many people subscribe to the notion that you must make drastic changes and restrict your entire diet to get results. By creating manageable, consistent changes, you can improve your health. Here are my best tips to clean up your diet in only 5 weeks. A clean eating diet plan is actually easy with my simple tips.

1. Replace drinking soda and sugary drinks with a healthy alternative

Low sugar options are unsweetened coffee or green tea. Fruit-infused waters are also tasty. Try adding slices of lemon, lime, cucumber, or oranges to plain water.

2. Limit eating fast food

The items on the menu are not beneficial. You may not get the necessary fiber intake, minerals, and vitamins that your body needs to function properly. Planning ahead is the key to avoiding the fast-food cycle.

Meal prepping is great to help on those days you don’t have the time or energy to cook. You can batch cook a few healthy meals to store in the freezer for those days you are short on time. I suggest preparing a more substantial portion of brown rice, a few veggies, and one or two lean proteins to mix and match during the week. I have many wonderful recipes and tips in my Radiant Healthy Eating Guide.

3. Give up white bread and grains

Switch to more nutrient-rich alternatives, including quinoa, wild rice, and whole grains. In white bread, the bran and the germ are removed and then “fortified” with additional vitamins. It seems ironic that what nature provides is removed, and then added later in the processing plant. Stick to grains in their purest natural form, and you will be much better off.

4. Add REAL fruits and veggies to every meal

Yes, every meal. There are so many fantastic ways to incorporate these into every meal. If you are creating a smoothie, you can add raw zucchini, cauliflower, or squash. Trust me when I say your smoothie won’t taste like cauliflower. I like to keep these vegetables pre-portioned out in the freezer to quickly add-in. A bonus is you don’t need to add ice to your smoothie because the frozen vegetables add a creamy ice cream consistency. Try mixing pureed vegetables into your burgers. This is another excellent way to up the nutritional content. This is another important tip to clean up your diet in 5 weeks.

5. Switch out your regular snacks to fruit and veggies

I don’t believe in an all-or-nothing approach to eating healthy. Sometimes you just want chips, but a few times a week, try replacing that bag of chips for an apple with nut butter. Cut up carrots, celery, and cucumber slices. Try eating cut-up carrots, celery, and cucumber slices with a tablespoon or two of hummus. This is one of my favorite meal planning tips.
