Eating clean involves not only choosing the right foods to eat but also avoiding all of the junk foods and processed foods that are so readily available. The keys to good health and proper nutrition are in the following principles:
• Eat whole foods
• Avoid processed foods
• Eliminate refined sugar
• Eat five or six small meals a day
• Cook your own meals
• Combine protein with carbs
