The Sane Way to A Healthier Lifestyle

There's nothing extreme about eating clean. You don't have to give up meat, invest in a fancy juicer, or banish the sugar bowl from the kitchen table.
"I define clean eating as consuming whole, natural foods that have not been processed," says Diane Welland, RD, author of The Complete Idiot's Guide to Eating Clean. "It's more of a lifestyle or an approach to food instead of a diet," she adds, explaining that regular physical activity and eating small, frequent meals that are balanced with protein, fat, and carbohydrates are typically part of the approach.
A sense of social awareness is also essential to clean eating, says Susan Kleiner, PhD, RD, owner of High Performance Nutrition, a Seattle area consulting firm, and author of "The Good Mood Diet." Kleiner defines clean eating as eating foods closer to the ground - more like the way they are picked, and as you might find them at a local farmers' market. "Be mindful of how you're eating and how what you eat affects the world around you," she says.
Here, these experts explain nine guidelines of clean eating and suggest strategies for making healthy foods your go-to choice.
