To implement these tactics in real life, try these five simple steps:
- Stock up on lean proteins, veggies, fruits, and clean complex carbs (eg. sweet potatoes, brown rice, whole grain pasta).
- Try to keep only clean whole foods stocked up in your fridge and pantry.
- Save the purchase of small treats for the allotted day you choose and only eat that treat outside of your home.
- Keep your treats out of your house, less temptation, and fewer triggers.
- Keep the treats just that: Treats! Treat yourself to a reasonable amount of a cheat food. For example: two cookies, one slice of pizza, one small serving of fries. I use this rule for myself as well as my children. We all need help learning and navigating food discipline and self-control with portions and choosing the right foods.
Every meal she sets up in her weekly client meal plans follows these standard, straightforward and easy guidelines. Below are some real ‘Clean Eating Guidelines’ She shares with all of her clients:
- Choose 4 oz of Lean Protein. This includes options such as: Lean ground turkey, chicken breast, and white fish. Optional vegan proteins: firm tofu, edamame, lentils, seitan, tempeh or plant-based ground.
- Choose 1 ½ cups of fiber and nutrient dense vegetables. These vegetables provide major vitamins and minerals in its purest form. Plus, the added benefit of fiber. Fiber provides extra satiation and helps aid digestion. Examples: Broccoli, cauliflower, snap peas, green beans, spinach, carrots.
- Choose ½ cup of clean complex carbohydrates. Look… carbs are not the enemy. Just be smart about the amount you’re taking in each meal. The other major factor is quality. You need to include whole, clean complex carbohydrates, not simple, refined, and processed ones. With these complex carbohydrates you get much more long-lasting energy as opposed to refined carbohydrates such as breads, baked goods, and cereals. Examples of good carb options: Sweet potatoes, quinoa, farro, brown rice, whole grain pasta, plant-based or brown rice pasta.
