I began my journey of clean eating just over a month ago. I had a HUGE sweet tooth for sugar and on the odd occasions that I would add salt to my food, I'd smother it in salt. I ditched all the processed, prepackaged and convenience foods, and added sugar and salt. This change has allowed me to lose 12lbs in a month!
Honey never used to be sweet to me but now I can only add a bit of it in my tea or its too sweet for me! Fruits never tasted so delicious before but now I can taste their sweetness and I find Im eating them more often (because I WANT to, not because I should!)
And salt... I had chicken wings Sunday night and they had added Montreal Chicken spice to them. Ive had this spice blend many times before and I loved it but now all I taste is salt. I had to check the label only to find the first ingredient was salt!!
I'm loving this change and having fun exploring new flavours and foods that I never thought I would like. I haven't had a single craving for something sweet or salty since I began this journey.
How has clean eating influenced your life?
Well done Rivais and keep going!
I've never liked sweet drinks or salty food so would not have a problem there. I do love chocolate though so have to be smart about it and only keep dark chocolate at home
My food change is therefore a little different although it also rellies on a lot of home prep and thinking ahead. In April I decided to stop eating meat (with the exception of fish) as a 30 day challenge. The biggest change I've noticed is that my sweat does not smell as bad as before!
Now the second month is in and I still love it! I might end up having a little meat treat from time to time (like mums roast for eg ) but will be careful in chosing only organic free range meat. Every person has a different diet and that's all perfectly fine, but I agree with you that we should all try to be conscious and put some effort into what we eat
Anyway just wanted to share my change and wish u good luck with yours
