HEALTHY FOOD DIET

A 10 days clean eating challenge is the best place to start on your journey to eating clean towards a healthy food diet. It requires you to follow the aforementioned guidelines on the types of foods to eat. In this case, real food which is not bought, processed or man-made in any way. Food should be low-carb, gluten-free with a clear emphasis on lean protein, healthy fats and fresh produce. In this challenge, you will prepare the food yourself so it is important to make prep ahead by shopping for groceries. Follow the meal plans without skipping or jumping to the middle, or omitting one of the menus. As part of the challenge, train yourself to eat after every 3-4 hours, but avoid any kind of food at least two hours before sleep.
