"How to Eat Clean"*

*Disclaimer - Results may vary based on a variety of factors. 

The basics of nutrition is the following: If you want to gain weight, you eat more calories during the course of the day than you actually use. If you want to lose weight you must use more calories than you eat. The complicated part of this is determining how the body responds to different types of calories. Let's take a closer look at this.

There used to be a popular theory that a calorie is a calorie. Whether it comes from chicken breast or comes from chocolate chip cookies, your body sees both sets of calories the same. While this theory may look good on paper it is false.

My personal experience is if I consume 2000 calories of "clean" food versus 2000 calories from "junk" food, all other things being equal (workout duration, aerobics and recuperation) my body respond many times better on the clean food.*

Your body will always function better if your daily calories come from "clean" wholesome foods, prepared as close to their natural state as possible. Think about it. All that sugar and fat (unclean food) going down your throat is like pouring mud down your bathroom sink and expecting the drain to work right.*
