When I first started eating clean I realized that, previously, many of the foods I thought were “healthy” were actually not very healthy at all. Marketing can sometimes be deceiving. The best advice I can give is to always, always read the ingredient list before you put it in your cart at the grocery store. My general rule of thumb is that if it has more than 5 or 6 ingredients, or any ingredients I can’t pronounce I try to stay away from it. Just because the label says, “Healthy”, doesn’t mean it will help to get you lean. If you are having a hard time losing the last few pounds, the boxed and packaged foods you are eating might be playing a role. Make sure to read your ingredient lists closely and try to avoid anything that adds extra sugar (sometimes worded as cane syrup, cane sugar, or high fructose corn syrup).
Check out this quick 1-minute video where I show you a grocery store trip and how I read my ingredient lists. Leave a comment if you have any questions or let me know what you think!

I am new to your website and trying to learn all I can about clean eating. I am curious…with all your talk about egg whites do you always use the egg white out of an egg or the egg whites in a carton? If you use the egg white out of an actual egg do you just toss the yolk? Silly question I feel…just kinda feels wasteful. Thanks!!
I’m new to your website, I am learning so much about you and your new life. It’s amazing! I recently had a baby 3 months ago and it’s so hard to loose the last few pounds of baby fat. I’m having trouble on what to eat and what not to eat. Can you please email me or respond back. I would gladly appreciate your help. By the way you look amazing 🙂 great job!
