Choice Upgrade: Unprocessed Foods over Low Nutrient Foods

Clean eating involves the process of selecting whole unprocessed foods and the avoidance of foods low in nutrient content and high in calories. Foods are selected that have a limited number of ingredients.

You need to figure out why you overeat. Take that energy and put it somewhere else. Somewhere positive! When you feel the urge to binge, immediately do something else. Do jumping jacks, go for a walk, take a shower, call a friend, read a book . . . anything to distract you!

Here are some ideas:

Drink a big glass of water; it will keep your stomach feeling full.
Do not overeat at mealtimes. It’s all about portion control, cut back on carbs and especially sugar!
Starve your body of all sugar.
Eat lots of veggies, fruit, fish, and chicken!
