If you want to get lean, the first place you should start is looking at your diet and cutting out any bad foods. Here are three healthy eating tips you can start using now!
1. Cut out processed food
Processed foods contain unnecessary sugar, fats, salts and preservatives. Foods containing added sugars, such as high fructose corn syrup, are especially bad and should be avoided. Eating processed foods can result in more bloating, fluid retention and weight gain.
2. Eat whole, natural foods regularly.
This includes whole grains, fruits, vegetables and minimally processed food in general. It may also include eliminating alcoholic beverages, which are toxic for the body (it really goes without saying).
3. Eat frequently.
Eating five to six small meals a day, will help rev up the metabolism, especially if the meals are high in protein.
