28 Day Clean Eating Challenge

Are you familiar with Clean Eating?  If not, you should be.  I’ve probably tried every diet out there from Atkins to Nutrisystem all with little to no long term success.   A couple of years ago I discovered Tosca Reno’s Clean Eating approach.  Basically it calls for eating fresh wholesome whole foods.  If you are trying to lose weight or become the fittest you can be – clean eating is the way to go.  Unfortunately, you can’t out train poor nutrition.  You can workout from 6 am to 6 pm but if your fueling your body with garbage you are wasting your time! 
Here is Clean Eating in a nutshell – eat fruits and vegetables, unprocessed whole grains, organic meats and choose foods that have ingredients you can pronounce. 
If this sounds like it might be right up your alley be sure to check out Tosca Reno's Eat Clean Diet.  I hate the use of “diet” as “diets” are typically short term and thus hard to sustain.  This is a lifestyle change.  Some of you may already be living it - some of you may be ready to jump in and make a change for the better.  
For the most part, I personally follow the principles pretty closely but lately with work and life I’ve found myself falling into old habits.  So the other day I picked up Tosca’s newest book "Eat Clean Diet Stripped".  It’s great for a review of the basic principles and offers up a 28 day menu plan.  The book also focuses on how important nutrition is,  the importance of being prepared, and our fear of success.  Yes, you heard me right – fear of success.  Not fear of failure.  This seems to occur with women all too often.  I’ll be hitting all of these plus the highs and lows of “dieting” during the next 28 days – stay tuned!
