Clean Eating is one of the latest food trends. Stars like Angelina Jolie and Nicole Kidman swear by this lifestyle, and we’ll show you what’s really behind it.
Tosca Reno is considered the inventor of “eat clean”. With her bestselling books, she’s shaped the conscious nutrition lifestyle over the past few years and gotten a lot of hype in the U.S. Now her ideas are also gaining traction on an international level. Below we’ll take a closer look at her methodology and put together an Eating Clean nutrition plan for you.

The Eating Clean concept isn’t all that new. On the contrary, this method is pretty much the same as a healthy and nutritious diet. Does that mean it’s not really a diet at all? Yep! A clean “diet” is really more of a healthy and conscious way of eating and living. Its focus is on crisp, fresh, and natural foods with balanced proportions of carbs, fats, and proteins.
Following the motto: “back to the roots”, clean eats involve lots of cooking at home, and meals with fresh and seasonal ingredients. Overall the method avoids processed foods, inviting you to take a closer look at your diet, production methods, and overall sustainability.

Can I lose weight on this plan?
Eating mostly whole foods will be good for your health in the long run, and fresh and unprocessed food should always be the basis of healthy eating. The most important factor in weight loss, however, is not your choice of food, but how many calories you consume in total. Our calorie chart will help you figure out how manycalories you are consuming. For long-term weight loss, we always recommend a moderate calorie deficit of 300 to 500 calories. Make sure you adjust your calorie requirements regularly to reach your health goals.
Clean Eating is more than just a trend because it’s about a fundamental focus on fresh foods like vegetables, fruits, whole grains like oats, and high quality protein sources instead of processed ingredients. It also emphasizes seasonal and regional products and a healthy, conscious and respectful approach to food.
How strictly you adhere to the basic rules of this method depends entirely on you. At its core, this method offers a good, basic framework for all those who want to be more aware of what they eat or reach their health goals.
