“Eating Clean”

Modifying what you consume will make a huge difference in how you feel and how your body will feel and metabolize food. The following examples are what “eating clean” is all about:

  • Instead of white rice and pasta have brown rice and whole wheat pasta.
  • Instead of white potatoes have sweet potatoes.
  • Instead of fried foods have baked or steamed foods.
  • Eat at least one salad a day with two tablespoons or less of any dressing.
  • Instead of peanuts have almonds.
  • Instead of peanut butter have almond butter.
  • Instead of white bread have grainy bread. Anything multi-grain is great!
  • Have chicken, fish, egg whites, or turkey.
  • When you plan of having Chinese food, have steamed this or that with brown rice. Moo Shu Chicken is a great Chinese meal!!!
  • As far as fruits, have strawberries, blueberries, grapefruits, or apples. As for bananas, you can have 1 a day.
  • If you consume protein powders as a meal, keep in mind most are full of preservatives and are loaded with sodium. The shakes should be taken in moderation — 3x a week, MAX!  Shakes are poor “meal replacements” as your body won’t metabolize a drink as it does food. Food makes your body work to digest it — thus, increases your metabolism.
  • Instead of sodas, have club soda, or flavored club soda.
  • Instead of 3 big meals, eat every 3-4 hours– if you eat a meal and it doesn’t hold you 4 hours, you need to up the calories.
  • Drink at least 8 glasses (8 oz) a day — green tea, oolong tea are great teas – With the warm weather approaching you can make them and have them cold – for a sweetener I would use Xylitol, Stevia or Equal.

And finally, the last meal of your day should be protein – Prostat™ is great to have, as it is predigested!
