Perimeter Shopping: Are you eating clean?

 Tomatoes are in, ketchup is out.

Eating clean means eating on the edge. It means staying out of the center aisles at the grocery store unless you need coffee or toilet paper. Foods allowed include a variety of whole grains, fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, nonfat dairy, and healthy fats. Which you won’t find next to the chips.

A calorie-controlled diet and regular exercise are the mainstays of any plan. Much like most successful weight loss plans, you should eat wholesome foods high in fiber, along with lean protein to reduce cravings and help satisfy hunger on fewer calories.

Starting the day with a nutritious breakfast and eating high-fiber carbs, lean protein with a little healthy fat every few hours, along with strength training can boost your metabolism and be a natural detox.

Exercise is an essential part of any program, including regular physical activity and weight training at least three days a week for a minimum of 30 minutes.

Here’s your list. See you on the perimeter. Keep it edgy.
