WHAT IS CLEAN EATING? Simply stated, it’s a lifestyle of eating food that’s minimally processed or in its most natural form—also known as whole food. Rich in naturally-occurring nutrients, whole foods have been the basis of the NeoLife philosophy since the company began back in 1958. Here are some ways that you can incorporate cleaner eating into your daily life.
1. Switch Your Pantry Staples: Gift or trash refined grains bereft of nutrients including white flour, white bread, and white sugar. Replace with nutrient-rich whole grains such as whole wheat fl our or nut flours, 100% whole wheat bread, and agave syrup or raw
2. Read the Label: When choosing packaged food, look for those with ingredients that you recognize and can pronounce. Packaged food tends to be high in added sugar which can add inches to your waistline, and high in sodium which can increase your blood pressure. Some not-so-obvious culprits: tomato sauce, jams and jellies, and dairy products.
3. Choose Organic: When possible, buy fruits and vegetables that have been grown organically whether they’re fresh (preferred), frozen or canned. Check the ingredient list to avoid added sugar, sodium, or preservatives.
4. Go With Healthy Fats: Heart-healthy fats including olive oil, avocado, and nut butters are a great substitute for saturated fats from butter and red meat.
5. Cook At Home: Cooking from scratch lets you control the ingredients and will help you reduce your dependence on processed foods. Involve your family and friends in the creating experience—and enjoy some quality time in the process!
Diet Myths – Finally Debunked!
WHAT’S THE TRUTH when it comes to losing weight? We’ve researched the latest diet myths and give you the real story!
Myth: Don’t eat after 8 p.m.
False! Your body can’t tell time! If you’re hungry at night, choose your snack wisely. Instead of a bowl of ice cream, choose a piece of fruit or handful of nuts and dried fruit. Half a NeoLifeBar in Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter flavor is also a delicious solution.
Myth: Avoid eating fat at all costs.
False! Avoiding fat may keep you from feeling full, causing you to eat more carbs to fill up. Two studies show that eating full fat dairy can help you lose weight and actually be healthier. Tufts University researchers reviewed the diets of 120,000 people and found that those who ate more low fat and nonfat dairy also ate more carbs, essentially replacing and adding to the fat calories. Another study analyzed the diets of 27,000 people and found that eating whole fat dairy such as yogurt and cheese was associated with a 23% reduced risk of developing type 2 diabetes, possibly due to specific fatty acids and other nutrients in whole dairy.
Be sure to choose monounsaturated or polyunsaturated fats such as olive oil, canola oil and safflower oil, and nut oils rather than saturated fats. Avoid trans fats which are linked to heart disease.
Myth: You can lose weight by eating foods that are “diet”, “light”, “lowfat” or “nonfat” and “low-carb”.
False! These foods don’t always mean low calorie. These claims can fool you into eating more than necessary, and chances are these foods may have artificial sweeteners and trans-fats. Studies have shown a relationship between drinking diet soda and packing on the pounds.
Myth: Carbohydrates can make you fat.
False! It’s true that white pasta, doughnuts and white bread in abundance can cause you to gain weight and spike blood sugar. Instead choose complex carbohydrates such as 100% whole wheat bread, quinoa, whole wheat pasta, beans, fruits and vegetables—and do so in moderation. These foods provide important fiber for heart and digestive health, protective phytonutrients, and help regulate normal blood sugar levels. Add All Natural Fiber to your food or shake recipe to boost fiber content.
Myth: It’s normal to feel hungry when you’re dieting.
False! This doesn’t have to be the case if you choose nutritious foods with protein and fiber at each meal. Don’t wait too long between meals to eat or you’ll feel that hunger hormone kick in. Try to eat every three to four hours. NeoLifeShake is a great meal replacement, while NeoLifeBar can hold you over between meals.
MYTH: You can eat as much as you want as long as you exercise.
False! Unless you are training for 8 hours a day like Olympic athletes, this is simply not true. You still need to choose healthy foods that are low in saturated fats, high in protein and fiber, and eat in moderation. Drink alcohol in moderation. Eat until you are satisfied, not overly stuffed.
