on

Clean eating is gaining a lot of attention as people look for new ways to lead a healthier life. Clean eating is simple, yet so many people get it wrong.

In basic terms, the goal of clean eating is to consume whole foods that are minimally processed, refined or come from a natural source. It challenges us to choose more fruits and vegetables as well as foods that are free of additives and preservatives and choose foods that are of nature.

What Makes Processed Foods Bad?

Although some experts will tell you that processed foods are not necessarily a bad thing, because it removes bacteria and toxins and helps to preserve foods for a period of time, they are wrong for multiple reasons.

Processed foods are low in fiber, low in nutrients, contain unhealthy fats, high amounts of sodium and sugar, high-fructose sugar, refined oils, and trans fats.

Each of these qualities poses significant risks to our health including the dreaded heart disease, the risk of stroke, diabetes, obesity, and cancer to name a few (MedlinePlus).

While the long-term effects can be momentous and life-changing, like weight loss or the reversal of heart disease or type 2 diabetes, there are immediate changes that begin to occur in a matter of just two or three weeks.

Clean eating is not just another diet plan, scheme or fad. Clean eating is a way of life that is pulling in followers by the thousands.

Mood Swing for the Better

Clean eating is well-known for its ability to provide mental clarity and overall brain health in general. In addition to the fog lifting, you also start to experience a change in your mood.

Thanks to omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin B, and improved regulation of brain chemicals like dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin, followers of clean eating can fend off feelings of depression and anxiety.

Improved Sleep Experience

According to Shape Magazine, another immediate benefit of clean eating is improved sleep experiences. Thanks to chemicals like tryptophan that naturally occur in foods like almonds, your body experiences a natural boost in the hormone melatonin which helps you to get much-needed sleep.
