How a Clean Eating Diet Works?

Although the basic tenets of clean eating focus on eating whole and natural foods and removing processed foods, sometimes it is helpful to have specific examples and lists of what is generally allowed on a clean eating diet.


Since clean eating is more of a healthy eating philosophy than specific diet plan, there are no calorie limits or specific things you must eat when following a clean eating diet. Instead you should focus on eating foods that are “clean” and allowed on the diet and avoiding those foods that are not allowed as often as possible.
