Why eat clean? The most important reason is the impact it has on your health. But another good reason to eat clean is that it can help you lose weight. A couple years ago I was getting super frustrated because I was working out like crazy but I wasn’t losing any weight. At that point I revamped my daily meals and began to only eat “clean” and watch ALL my portions, that’s when the weight started to come off. So believe me, what you eat has a huge impact on how you look. Below are my top 6 reasons to incorporate eating clean into your life:
- weight – watch it drop off/maintenance
- eliminating man made chemicals (reduces the chances of cancer dramatically)
- significantly lower the risk of diabetes
- feeling energized all day long
- beautiful glowing skin, hair and nails
