The most effective way to losing weight or becoming leaner is to EAT CLEAN. That’s made the biggest difference in losing fat and becoming more toned for me. It’s more effective (faster and longer-lasting results!) to eat healthier than to simply cut back on calories in numbers alone.
What I mean by “eating healthily” is eating whole, natural foods—as close to their pure, natural state as you can get. That means no preservatives, hormones, or pesticides added to your food; organic protein and produce, and nothing “white” (sugar and flour). For me, this means sticking pretty closely to the Paleo Diet, but I still eat some whole grains and (non-fat) dairy. Lately I’ve also been trying to eat more lean protein, lots of veggies and fiber, less carbs, and less fat and drink lots and lots of water. I do try to keep a balanced diet still though. This is just my personal take on “eating clean” that works for me. Everyone has their own preferences—but remember, eating healthier in general is KEY to losing fat and becoming leaner!
