4 Foods Messing Up Your Clean Diet

1. Refined Grains

EAT THIS! Instead: Whole Grains

A research in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition indicated that replacing refined grains with whole grains reduces digestion-related calories and speeds up metabolism.

2. Salt

EAT THIS! Instead: Herbs and Spices

Spice up your cuisine with metabolism-boosting spices like ginseng and cayenne pepper instead of grainy white stuff.

3. Saturated Fats

EAT THIS! Instead: Unsaturated Fats


In moderation, saturated fats like whole milk, full-fat cheese, and butter are fine, but too much can lead to high cholesterol, heart disease, stroke, and more.

4. Fruit Juice

EAT THIS! Instead: Whole Fruit

You may not realize that eating a full fruit and drinking fruit juice are very different nutritionally.
